Day 11 of Clean Eating Challenge!

Day 11!

We’re at the halfway mark.  How’s it going!?  I know the more I do these challenges the more I grow and progress.  It’s definitely a work in progress.  I’ve been coaching for the last couple of years and I have really seen a huge change in my own personal journey.  It doesn’t matter how fast you progress as long as you’re going the right direction:)

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?  I never take my health for granted and I thank GOD everyday for my health and for the health of my loved ones.  When you are tempted to be critical and hate your thighs or butt or whatever…remember that you are healthy and that you have the opportunity to be better everyday.

Day 2 Spring Clean Challenge!

Day 2

Happy hump day:)))  During the detox, the first few days are the worst but if you hang on and persevere, you will see the light at the end of the tunnel:)  Again, the detox is to take away the crutches and the ‘drug’ of choice in our lives.  One of the hardest things to do is to start dealing with our feelings.  When we let go of our ‘drug’, we are forced to really feel.  This is a good thing!  When you are cranky, overwhelmed, angry, irritable, etc…it means that you are human and your heart is beating.  When we choose to numb out and not deal, we are not connected, present, and engaged in life.  I promise you that there will be great clarity and energy right around the corner if you do not give up!!!  You will learn new tools to deal rather than go to donuts, cakes and cookies:)))

 

1. Wednesday- Stretch, cardio, upper body, and close out with a stretch.  Moving and stretching our bodies are an important part of the workout.  Don’t skip it!

 

 

2. Food-Know the difference between emotional eating and true hunger.  When you abuse your body by not eating or overeating then you can mess up your hunger cues.  A baby doesn’t have to be told when it’s hungry.  They will let you know!!! It’s interesting that they start to scream for food about every three hours. We were designed that way.  We need to eat when we’re hungry and stop when we’re full.  When we don’t follow the natural cues, we numb out.  That’s when we eat mindlessly, even when we’re not hungry.  So check out this cool list.  The next time you pick up a snack, ask yourself these questions….

 

 

 

3. Mantra for the Day:  It’s Supposed to be Hard!
If you are asking yourself, “What did I get myself into???” Well, you’re on the right path:)  This is supposed to be hard.  It’s so much easier not to care, to eat whatever you want and to lie to yourself.  You have engaged in really dealing with this part of your life.  So, when you start to whine and complain about how much you want chocolates, caffeine, alcohol, etc…then tell yourself that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.  Self control is like a muscle…the more we use it, the stronger it gets.  Also, when we don’t use it, we lose it!!!

 

 

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

Day 81 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 81!

Hope you had a great holiday break spending it with people you love.  I had a fabulous time and definitely indulged.  I’m looking forward to our detox coming up on January 7th!  There are some spots left if you want to join us.  I’m compiling some great recipes and testing them out on my new juicer.  Can’t wait!

 

1.  Thursday- Stretch and do 1 hour of yoga today.  Enjoy and breathe….

 

 

2. Food-Head start detox!

Clean out your system and prepare for our January detox.  We’ll probably have a couple more indulging days for New Year’s so get a jump start!

 

3. Mantra for the Day:  The trouble is, you think you have time.I always thought I had time to get in shape.  I was young, fairly healthy, I looked average in my clothes, and thought I had all the time in the world!  One day turned into a week, into a month, into months, into years, into a decade!  Basically from 30 to 40 I hardly worked out, I had three kids and thought my ship had sailed.  I never ever imagined that I could get in shape and be healthy.  I definitely didn’t think I could be in the best shape of my life in my forties!  Well, same rule applies, everyday of working out turned into a week, a month, many months and almost three years later, it’s become my way of life.  I LOVE to workout, I eat clean most of the time, I feel amazing and I count my blessings everyday!  I am dealing with the consequences of many years of neglecting my body. So don’t wait.  Do it NOW!!!  Keep at it.  One day at a time.  It’s a marathon, not a sprint!

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

 

Day 18 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 18!

TGIF!!!  Woo hoo!!!  Well, It’s the weekend and it’s time to plan out your activities and meals.  Remember, when you fail to plan you plan to fail!!!:)))  In order to ensure victory, you MUST have a game plan.  Our culture and society does not set us up to succeed.  If anything, our system is designed to make you fail.  Once your guard is down, you are bombarded by advertising and easy access to unhealthy foods.  Stay present and engaged.  Know what you are consuming.  Keep moving!!!

 

 

1) Friday- Work your Core Day!  Make sure you stretch and cool down with every workout.  It’s very important to be warmed up before you engage in any exercise activity.  Stretch before and after too to prevent injuries.

 

 

 

2) INSANITY Day 2- Well, I thought I was going to breeze through this program.  I already do a lot of the moves in my bootcamp classes that I teach.  I totally underestimated the workout and as I’m writing this, my body feels like I ran into a mac truck!!!  It was definitely an AWESOME workout and I can’t imagine it getting harder.  I heard month two is the hardest workout series put on a DVD!  WOW!  Wish me luck:)  Basically, the moves are done in three minute intervals with a one minute rest/recovery.  In my classes, we do a thirty second interval with a ten second rest.  So, a minute feels like an eternity while you’re doing burpees, squat jumps, and mountain climbers.  I do like the challenge and I’m hoping to get some killer results.  All right…I’ll keep you guys posted..stay tuned!

 

3) Mantra for the Day- DIG DEEP!!!
It’s only fitting that I use this mantra today.  ‘Dig deep’ is the INSANITY workout mantra!  Whenever you think you can’t do it anymore, you dig deep and reach in.  There’s so much more inside of us if we dig deep.  I also believe that sometimes, that depth can only be brought out by someone else.  We may not believe that we can do it but if you have someone who believes in you, it’s amazing how that motivates and inspires you to believe it too.  We are opening up our new challenge group this Monday, May 21st!  If you need some encouragement or if you need to get to the next level, let us help you and encourage you to get there.  The secret is in our community groups.  We have am exclusive group that helps with accountability and encouragement.  We were never meant to this alone.  It’s great to hear real life examples from people just like you who are producing massive results!  Check out some of their stories here!!!  Register here and get two weeks FREE!!!  Change your life for less than a dollar a day.  You are worth it!

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