Day 21 of Spring Clean Challenge!

Day 21

It’s Monday and I hope you are ready to go after it this week!!!  We are going to work hard and be determined to finish strong.  This next week will be the turning point for you.  This week will determine if you’re serious and ready to make lasting changes or if this is just going to be a fad for you.  How disappointing to go through all this hard work and come this far only to quit and go back to the way you were before.  You have to choose to endure the pain of change and not want to go backwards.  I believe in you guys!!!  You can do this:)

 

 

1.  Monday- Cardio for 30 minutes and lower body exercises for 30 minutes.  I want you to be huffin’ and puffin’ during this workout!  If you still look pretty after your workout, you didn’t work out hard enough!!! LOL!

 

2.  Food- Lets not make food our master.  You be in control of what goes in your body.  Stay connected, mindful, engaged and present.  Really make the effort to be in the moment and not let excuses get the best of you.  Plan, plan, plan!!!  If you do blow it, shake it off and move on:)))

 

 

3. Mantra for the day:  Make the Investment!!!

We are all given the same 24 hours in the day.  How are you using it.  Just like we need to be fully present to live in the moment and intentional about our food choices, we need to do the same with our time management.  You will be busy!  We’re all busy!  Make your health and fitness a priority.  Its non-negotiable.  If you wait for perfect conditions, it will never happen.  It’s going to be inconvenient.  It will be too cold or too hot.  It will be too early or too late.  Whatever the excuses are, it’s time to STOP IT and make a decision!  Learn to multi-task.  Take your babies in the stroller and go for a walk, go for a walk with your spouse or friends.  Whatever it is, figure out what works for you and do it.  Remember EXCUSES don’t produce results..only ACTION produces results!!!  This is our week ladies!!!  Train hard and be disciplined this week!

 

 

 

Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)

Day 45 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 45

Hi guys!  Happy Thanksgiving eve! Continue to eat clean and don’t sabotage your progress.  You will be amazed at how delicious ‘clean’ treats are!  Find a new way to reward yourself when you hit certain goals.  Get a massage, mani/pedi, buy a new workout outfit, watch a movie, get a new book, download some new tunes.  Let’s get out of the habit of giving ourselves food rewards for losing weight!  Kind of defeats the purpose don’t you think?

 

 

1. Wednesday- Upper body workout.  One of the greatest upper body workouts IMHO is the push up.  When you master the push up, you will gain upper body strength and will continue to grow.  Add a few push ups to each rep and track your progress.  Try to do at least twenty push ups per day.  You can start on your knees and work you way up.

 

 

2. Food- Food is not the enemy.  We have to learn how to eat the right foods to fuel our body.  Eat things in moderation.  Try to eat as clean as possible.  You will not gain all the wight back with one slice of cake.  If you have cake everyday for a month, then you will most likely gain it back and then some.  Learn the science of weight loss.  Do the math!  Be mindful and intentional.  You can do this!!!

 

 

 

3. Mantra for the Day:  Where there’s a will, there’s a way!!!
Here are some excuses I hear, “I don’t have time.”, “I don’t have a gym membership.”, “I don’t have the money to eat healthy.”, “I don’t know how to cook.”, “I just have bad genes.”, “I’m big boned.”, “I hate working out.”, “It’s too cold.”, “It’s too hot.”, “I can’t do it!”, waa, waa, waa,……*insert whiny voice*  OK Ladies, it’s tough love time.  We were all given the same 24 hours in a day, we can make this happen if we really want to.  Excuses will get you NOWHERE!!!  Action produces results!!!  Even if you decided to work out for fifteen minutes a day, I bet you would find the time to keep on going.  You have to want it bad enough or you will just remain the same.  Make a decision.  Tell your excuses to SHUT UP and keep moving!!!  You have the tools here to be successful.  Now do it and watch yourself morph into the person you we’re designed to be!  XOXO:)))

OK..I think you get the picture:)))  Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!

Day 34 & 35 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 34 & 35

Hi there!  I hope you are having a fabulous day and ready to have an active, fun, and enjoyable weekend!  Let’s really push through.  No excuses.  Make it happen!!!  You can totally do it:)))

 

1. Saturday!  Make this a fun day of activity with your loved ones.  Enjoy one another while enjoying the outdoors.  Make sure you let us know what you did on our exclusive page:)

Sunday- Take your relaxation day and rejuvenate your body.  Get ready and prep for the week and let’s kill Monday!!!

 

 

 

 

2. Food- Make sure you plan out your meals on the weekends.  This is the time that we can be careless and mindless about our diet.  Eat often and eat healthy, whole foods that will fuel your body to work at its optimum level.  Remember you are an elite athlete.  You have an incredible vessel.  It is a loaner so take good care of it:)

 

 

3. Mantra for the day:  NO EXCUSES!

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

Day 29 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 29
You survived the weekend!!!  And if you didn’t, shake it off and move on.  Remember,  “Champions have a short memory!”

 

1.  Monday- Today we work the lower body!  Start with a good stretch and some cardio for the first thirty minutes.  (Check out exercises exclusive page)  Remember to modify and to listen to your body.

2.  Part of ensuring the victory is being a student of your body.  Know your numbers.  Know what type of foods help you.  There is not a one size fit all fitness program.  What I love about our program is that we are taking control of our own bodies and learning the best way to take care of it.  Calculate your numbers to see what your BMR is and how many calories you need to be consuming.  In order to lose weight, you need to eat more!  Eat smaller meals that are rich in nutrients every three hours!  No starving yourself:))))

3.  Mantra for the day: Don’t make excuses!

You have the power to choose how your day is going to be. Don’t make excuses.  Take responsibility.  Dig deep and let’s finish strong!!!

Love you guys!  I’m rooting for you:)

Day 11 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 11!

I got to the yoga studio about twenty minutes early and decided to chill in my car and wait. I started to dose off and was sooooooo sleepy! I almost left to go home but I persevered and stayed for class. It was such an amazing yoga class and I’m so glad I stayed. Reminder to keep going no matter what:)))

 

1.   Thursday- Stretch and do 1 hr of yoga, pilates or some kind of core strengthening workout.

 

2.  Food-  I was at a party and I was talking to a guy who just came back to the states from India.  I was talking to him about our transformation series and we got on the subject of food in other countries vs. here.  We agreed that it takes so much effort to eat well here.  In other countries, mostly everything is fresh and organic.  Unfortunately, there is so much greed and corruption with the big corporations and distributors here in the US.  Don’t get me started!  Educate yourself.  Read books, watch documentaries.  If we rely on the default of the Standard American Diet you will surely be unhealthy.  You owe it to yourself.  Applaud yourself today for being proactive with your food choices.

 

 

 

3.   Mantra for the day:  Gratitude
Make a list of ten things you are grateful for.  Sit and marinate on that. Our health is priceless!!!  You can have all the millions in the world but if you don’t have your health, what good is it?

 

Have a beautiful day.  I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)))

Day 2 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 2

 

Congratulations!  You survived the first day of the detox!!!  The first five days are going to be the toughest but you will get through it.
Remember, Excuses = NO results.  Action = Change.

 

1.  Tuesday- ½ hour of solid cardio and some strength training.  Here are some ideas for cardio. (Check our group page for videos.)

 

 

2.  Follow the meal plan. This is a great way to introduce your family to clean eating.  Get them involved in the kitchen, let them go to the grocery store with you.  You are modeling a great example for them to follow.   What you do today is making a huge impact.  They are watching you:)))

 

3.  Set realistic goals.  Be real with yourself. We are bombarded with images that are not real.  We see women who are nipped, tucked, airbrushed, photoshopped, etc. and we wonder why we don’t look like them.  We feel bad and beat ourselves up because we think we’re supposed to look a certain way.  I want you to join me in revolutionizing how real women are to be viewed.  Don’t judge us by the size of our hips but by our strength, determination, character, love and beauty that we possess!  When you are evaluating your goals, ask yourself what you are willing to sacrifice to look a certain way.  Your “why” has to be bigger than just wanting to look good.  That will come and will be a byproduct of being healthy and fit.  Remember your goals, make sure they are specific.  Throughout the day when you are craving something or tempted to eat something unhealthy then ask yourself, “Will eating or drinking this help get me closer to my goal? Is it worth it”???  If the answer is “no”…walk away:)))

 

Have a beautiful day!

 

I love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!

 

 

Day 26 of 30 Day Challenge!!

Day 26!

Sorry I didn’t check in with you guys the last few days.  It’s been crazy busy and I just couldn’t make it happen.  Anyway, it’s already Tuesday and we’re ready to start the week off right!  Let’s start fresh and make no excuses!!!  Just do it!!!!

 

1) Cardio Day!!!  My choice today is Zumba!!!  It’s fun and an awesome workout.  Whatever you decide, find something you totally love!  Find your passion.  You never know, you may fall in love with boxing, running, biking, swimming, hiking, etc…keep trying new activities and see which one sticks:)))  Try this one if you’re stuck…

 

 

 

2) Juicing Ideas

 

 

3) Mantra for the Day- You are Beautiful!!!

If you haven’t been reminded today, here is your reminder.  YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!  You are an inspiration and you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.  You are STRONG, AMAZING, COMPASSIONATE, KIND, FABULOUS, INCREDIBLE, and so many other awesome attributes.  You choose what you will receive.  You also have the power to reject words that are not useful to you.  Remember that you are worthy and you will reach your goals if you focus and keep it going.  I love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!  XOXO:))))
