Day 19 & 20 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Hi guys!!!

It’s the weekend and I have a very busy weekend ahead of me as I’m sure you do too.  Make sure you prioritize your exercise and clean eating for the weekend.  It’s not just gonna happen by osmosis!  You need to be intentional and deliberate about how you plan you weekend.  Have fun!!!

2) Saturday Workout -Enjoy a fun activity with your friends or family.  Take advantage of nature.  Go for a hike, go for a run on the beach, ride your bike, the possibilities are endless!!!  Go for it!!!

Sunday- Rest and relaxation day!  Make sure that you let your body recover.  Also, discipline the mind to be still and to be relaxed.  Take some time to meditate and practice deep breathing.  Read a good book that will help you grow and challenge your character.

3) Day 3 of INSANITY!!!
I woke up pretty sore today but not horrible.  I felt a little stiff and my back was achy.  I taught a bootcamp class in the morning and we did a lot of stretching.  Apparently, my clients needed it too since Coach JC kicked their butts during Kettle the day before.  They came crawling in so it was unanimous, we were going to have a good yoga flow kind of class.  It was basically my warm up for what was to come which was day three of some more Shaun T. punishment!!!

Since this was my first time going through the program, I really didn’t know what to expect.  I had butterflies in my stomach.  It felt like the first day of school except I was by myself in my living room:)  We started with the ‘warm up’ which was killer to begin with!  Then we proceeded to do some crazy drills for three minutes straight!  High intensity drills that sped up at every round.  I was definitely gasping for air and sweating buckets.  There’s a minute recovery period then you go again for three more minutes. The whole workout is only about forty minutes long but it felt like an eternity!!! I was pretty proud of myself because I hung in there.  I paced myself and was able to do about 90% of the workout.  So during the last six minutes, I revved up my engine and committed to go full out 100%%%  since this was the last round, I was digging deep to give it all I had.  Well, I miscalculated the time and after the one minute break, Shaun T. says, “We’re doing it again!!!”  I was in shock!  I picked myself up and dragged my booty back up to do it one more time.  I was so exhausted by this point that I started to cry.  It wasn’t a little whimpering cry but a LOUD I’m gonna finish this if it’s the last thing I do kind of cry!!!  I dug deep and persevered and it felt AWESOME!!!  I can’t wait to do it again tomorrow!

 

3) Mantra for the Day-Wisdom from Michael Jordan!  This says it all!!!

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!  XOXO:)))

 

Day 15 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 15!

How’s it going?  By now you should be enjoying the clean eating and the workouts.  Your body should be pretty adjusted and you are actually looking forward to your exercise routine.  Keep it going!  You will crave more of what you put in your body.  If you eat broccoli, you will crave broccoli!!!  I’m serious:)))

1) Tuesday- Choose a cardio workout that you will enjoy.  Get your heart rate up and your goal should be to get real sweaty:)))

 

2) Sugar Fact- Sugar raises insulin levels.
An influx of sugar into your body will have a fairly predictable result: Your blood sugar levels will zoom up.  Shortly after, your pancreas will release a bunch of insulin to help clear sugar from your blood into your cells. As blood sugar levels go down, insulin levels return to normal. But when you eat a lot of sugar, you’re constantly calling for insulin, and that can backfire in a couple of ways. Over time, it takes more and more insulin to get the job done. Eventually, your pancreas may just stop responding to the call. Congratulations, you’re now an insulin-dependent diabetic. And along the way, exposing your cells and organs to chronically high insulin levels accelerates the aging process.

3) Mantra for the Day- Do It Wholeheartedly!
When you do something with your whole heart, you are engaged and focused.  It matters to you and you are all in!  When you do something half heartedly, it shows.  You’re not motivated, you lack passion and therefore you don’t see the results.  Today make the decision to give your health and fitness your whole heart!  Do not give in to excuses but just decide.  You can do this!!!  Don’t give up:))))

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!  XOXO:))))
