Day 62 & 63 of 90 Day Challenge!!!

Day 62 & 63!

It’s the weekend!  Tis’ the season for holiday parties!  I love this time of the year.  Normally, I would just go for it and forget about my clean eating and eat whatever I wanted.  I always work super hard come January 1st!  Well, those days are over.  This is a lifestyle and not a fad.  I’m so grateful that switch finally got turned “ON”:)))  Don’t be part of the statistics of people who will gain between six to ten pounds during the holidays.  Be smart and make wise choices.  Keep it moving:)))

 

1. Saturday- This is your day to work out with your loved ones and try something new and fun!  I love workouts that don’t feel like workouts:)))

Sunday- Don’t forget to REST!  Take a rest day:)  You need it to replenish your energy!

 

 

 

2.) Food- Holiday Pot Luck!
If you are going to a party, offer to bring a dish.  Eat before you go and be mindful.  Here are some great potluck ideas!  So cool:)))

 

 

 

3. Mantra of the Day!!! – Take Inventory!
As we close out the year, take some time to take an inventory of your life.  For me, I realized that I need to cut some things out of my life and simplify.  I need to take more time to rest and chill:)  This is very difficult for me.  I’m excited about learning to slow down.  Another thing I’m doing is taking an inventory of people in my life.  Some people are drama and toxic and I need to have clear boundaries.  I also want to surround myself with people who inspire me, challenge me and make me a better person.  I’m so excited to see what the New Year will hold.  2012 has been amazing but it’s just the beginning!!! 2013 is gonna rock!!!

 

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

Day 27 & 28 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 27 & 28!

It’s the weekend!!!  Remember to stay focused.  This can be a challenging time and we can lose control.  There’s a lot of fun parties and activities that are usually loaded with yummy goodness.  Don’t give in.  Stay clean and remember the goal!!!

 

1. Saturday- This is your day to work out with your loved ones and try something new and fun!  I love workouts that don’t feel like workouts:)))

Sunday- Don’t forget to REST!  Take a rest day:)  You need it to replenish your energy!

I love seeing kids do yoga:)  Check out my son and daughter doing yoga:)

 

2.) Food- Super Food of the Day!!! -WATER!!!
OK…technically, not food but we need water, water, and more water!!!
Here’s a good tip.  Calculate your weight and cut it in half.  Then drink that number in ounces.  For example, if someone weighs 150 pounds, they will drink 75 ounces of water.  If you’re not a water drinker, here’s another tip!  Add fruit to your water.  Cucumbers, limes, lemons, strawberries, or mint.  It tastes like spa water and you won’t get enough of it!!!  Check out this gorgeous, refreshing pitcher of water!!!  Drink up:)))

 

 

3. Mantra of the Day!!! – Encourage Each Other!

One of the reasons for our amazing success in this program is the fact that we are encouraging each other to succeed.  In a society where women can be competitive, catty, conniving and jealous doesn’t it feel great to be encouraged?  This should become the norm in our world.  Women are powerful beings.  We need to speak kindness and do good to those around us.  Do it!  You will be empowered when you realize that what we give we will get back. All of the women in the program are so amazing, funny, strong, inspiring, courageous, and full of love. Tell someone how much they mean to you today.  You guys are beautiful and I’m so proud to know you.

 

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

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:)))
