Day 23 of Spring Clean Challenge Part II

Day 23!

Hi guys!  Don’t lose steam.  We need to renew our motivation daily.  It’s not automatic, it’s not natural.  Do not be discouraged when you have an off day or if you don’t feel like working out.  It happens to all of us.  The key is to do it anyway.  Make it a priority and don’t let anything get in the way.  Commit to it and take action.  We’re almost done with this series!!!  Only one week left!!!  We’re taking sign ups for the next challenge.  If you decide to move on we hope you take what you’ve learned here and continue to apply it.  If you want to stay and keep connected, we would be happy to have you.  I will be partnering with Michelle from Michelle’s Health and Nutrition Zone.  Michelle is an amazing, certified nutritionist and is a great resource.  She normally charges hundreds of dollars and we are offering the next 60 day challenge for ONLY $60!!!  That’s a dollar a day to help you get fit and help you sustain a lifestyle change!!!  You can also sign up just for one month for $30.00.  Take advantage of this amazing opportunity!!!  Sign up here.

1) Wednesday Workout!  Upper Body and Abs!!!
Check this out!  Push up, planks are a great way to tone up your upper body!!!

 

2) Sleep!  I want to take a moment to talk about the importance of sleep.  This is very challenging for me.  I have three kids and I do most of my business at night when they go to bed.  I’m a night owl and I know I need to get my body into a rhythm that will allow me to get at least eight hours of sleep.  I can’t function well on little sleep. Here’s a great overview and advice on getting good sleep:)))

 

 

 

 

3) Mantra for the Day!!!- Failure is NOT an Option!!!

So many of us get so discouraged when we ‘fail’.  Why!?!?  We act like we should be perfect or something!  If you’re not failing, you’re not trying hard enough.  Part of succeeding is failing then getting back up and trying again.  We have to change our definition of failure.  Failing forward is progress.  The only way to fail is to QUIT!  So, don’t quit.  We’re almost there.  You can do it and this is a lifestyle.  What are you afraid of?  Don’t self sabotage yourself.  You deserve to live a happy, healthy life.  You are worth it.  XOXO!!!

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

 

 

Appreciate What You Have!!!

Hello!
I hope you guys are doing well and having a great day!  I took my first Capoeira class today.  It’s a form of martial arts and dance.  It was a lot of fun!!!  My legs are already sore!  I love being able to try new things.  Even though I teach classes and work out all the time, when I try something new, my muscles awaken and I’m sore in new places.  It’s a great feeling.  What new things have you tried lately???

 

 

1. Sunday- R&R day.  I hope you are listening to your body and making sure you are resting.  Rest is an important part of wellness.  Studies show that people who get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night tend to lose weight faster and keep it off.  I have a hard time with this one because I’m a night owl.  I have to commit to going to bed at a decent hour every night.  My goal is 11:00pm.  It’s already 12:26am so I’m not doing too great! LOL!

Lack of Sleep Contributes to Weight Gain

 

 

2.  Food-  Check out this interesting article about genetically modified food.  How do you feel about it?  Does it bother you?  Honestly, it never really bothered me before but the more I research it, the scarier it is. Do your homework and be aware. Tell me what you think.

Say No to GMO’s!

Great article on GM food

 

3. Mantra for the Day: Appreciate What you Have
So many times we take things for granted.  We are so busy looking for what we want that we miss what we already have.  I remember times in my past when I was in amazing shape and during that time I hated my body and thought I was so fat.  It’s sad that I wasted so much energy on focusing on all the things I hated about myself instead of being grateful and happy about who I was.  Whatever we focus on will flourish and whatever we starve will die.  So focus on your amazing qualities of strength, compassion, honesty, honor, and love!!!  Starve your fears, insecurities, self criticism, hate, judgment, and ego.  You will get more of what you focus on so focus on the good.
