Day 13 & 14 of Clean Eating Challenge!

Day 13 & 14

We have 7 days to go!  Time sure is flying!  Take a moment to connect and thank your self for going on this journey of healing and transformation.  It’s such a beautiful experience for me to watch amazing women start to take care of themselves and begin to understand the importance of self care.  You have all been such an inspiration to me.  I thank you for allowing me to be a witness.

1.  Saturday-  Cardio fun day for the whole family.  Go for a walk, run, hike, bike ride, skate, etc…whatever it is, incorporate the whole family or friends in your workout.  This is a great time to build memories and teach your kids by modeling a healthy, active lifestyle.  I’m so encouraged that some of you on the team have started working out with your spouses!  That is awesome!!!

2. Sunday- REST DAY!  It’s so important to rejuvenate and recharge!  Enjoy!

3. Mantra for the day:  I Am Mentally Tough!

You are mentally tough!!!  The battle starts in our mind.  If we doubt and give up mentally, then we are out of the game.  Start to believe that you are strong and that you are finisher!  Don’t be weak and be a quitter!  You don’t have to finish pretty, or perfectly, or gracefully, JUST FINISH!!!  This journey is an exercise in character.  Look at all the things you have overcome in your life up until this point.  This is just one area that you will be able to look back on and say, YES..I FINISHED!!!  You can and you will.  I believe in you! You ROCK!!!

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

Day 5 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 5

 

Wow!  You need to be so proud of yourself.  You ROCK!!!  I know it’s hard, tiring and painful.  Anything that is worth having takes hard work and dedication.  Keep it moving and smile:)

1.  Friday-  Today is core day.  Check out the exclusive group for some great ab exercises.  Remember that if you have access to a gym or you have a group to workout with then adjust your workouts.  If you do more, GREAT!  The most important part is keeping it fun and exciting!!!  Here are some CORE exercises you can do.

 

 

2.  By this time, you should start feeling really great.  If you have cut out caffeine or soda, you should be done with your detox headache by now.  Remember to drink tons of water!  For example, if you weigh 120lbs, drink half your body weight in ounces.  So you would drink 60oz of water.  If you are working out and sweating, then drink more.  You will have to pee often..sorry but that’s the way it goes:)

 

3.  Mantra for the Day- I need to shower myself with love and encouragement.
I posted on FB today and asked people to share what their favorite physical attribute was.  It was so hard for people to respond confidently and really own what they loved about themselves.  I bet if I had asked, “Give a reason you don’t like your physical appearance.”  I would have gotten tons of responses.  Why are we so hard on ourselves?  I think that we sometimes think that it’s wrong to toot our own horn,  yet its so easy for us to criticize ourselves without even thinking about it. Hmmmmm…something to think about.
Here’s the challenge.  For one week, starting today, write one thing you love about yourself.  I know it will be hard and uncomfortable but we need to practice…starting now:)))

 

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

XOXO!

Day 4 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 4

You are doing AWESOME!  You should be so proud of yourself!  It’s a marathon not a sprint.  So, take your time.  One day at a time.

1. Thursday- Yoga, pilates, or any type of workout that incorporates lots of stretching and working on your flexibility.  Especially the older we get, stretching is vital to our program to help keep us limber and to help prevent injuries. (Check the member page for videos)

 

2.  Enjoy your meals.  When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Take the time to sort out your food and snacks into single servings.  This might seem like a pain in the butt but it will pay off.  Especially when your day is busy and you have to drive kids all over town, it seems easier to go to the drive thru when you are starving and you have starving kids yelling for food.  Pack snacks for them too.  You will save money and feel great that you are giving your family healthy options.

 

 

3. Mantra for the day:  You are beautiful!!!
Thank you for loving yourself enough to take care of yourself and invest the time and energy on your health.  If your motivation is because you hate your thighs, your belly, arms, etc….your energy and focus will be on the negative and you will get more of what you focus on.  Think about how grateful you are for the body that you were created to have.  You are strong, powerful, beautiful beings.  Your body is your ally, not your enemy.  Be kind to your body and your body will be kind to you.  Here’s a great exercise for you to do today…

Go to the mirror and really look at yourself and say, “Thank you for being there and loving me unconditionally, even when I am not kind and say hurtful things you are still here and haven’t given up on me.  I vow to treat you better and vow to speak kind words to you and about you.  Please forgive me for hurting you and being ungrateful…I am transforming!!!!”  Really mean it…decide today to stop the cycle of self hate.  You are amazing and beautiful and I’m so honored to know you.

Take the BODY PLEDGE:)))

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

Love,

Judy
