Day 59 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 59!

Thank you for all the amazing responses to yesterday’s blog.  I’m so grateful I get to witness transformation!  It’s so encouraging and faith building!  You can do this:)))

We want YOU to be our next transformation story!!!  Send us your story!  We want to hear from you:)))

 

1) Wednesday-Stretch, Cardio and Upper Body workout!  If you think too hard about working out, you’ll talk yourself out of it!  Just do it:)))

 

 

2. Food-Portion Control!  This is something we constantly have to keep reminding ourselves.  The portions just keep getting bigger! If you’re not reading labels, you should be.  Be aware.  It’s your body, it’s your responsibility!  Yesterday, we went out to dinner.  I automatically asked for a to-go container and wrapped up half of my plate.  I had more than enough for dinner and enjoyed the other half for lunch!  Check out this great chart….

 

3. Mantra for the Day!!! -Visualize your Life!!!
Are you using the power of visualization in your life?  In your time of quiet and peace take some time to visualize how you want your life to look.  Take some time to envision what it would be like to run after your kids at the park without being in pain or being winded.  How would it feel to be able to shop at certain stores and wear certain clothes?  If you can see it, you can achieve it.  Keep pictures up in a special place that will motivate you.  If you haven’t discovered Pinterest yet, it’s a great site where you can create your own boards. (Follow me on Pinterest:))  Keep a pair of jeans or a dress that you want to fit into out where you can see it daily.  Strive everyday to move towards your goal.
Everyday spend some time imagining and dreaming about the life you want to have.  Then do one thing that will move you closer to that goal. When you are engaging in an activity or ready to eat a bite of something, ask yourself, “Is this going to get me closer to my goals?”  If the answer is “NO!”  Then get rid of it or stop doing it.

 

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

Day 24 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 24

Happy Halloween!!!  I confess, last year I took my children’s candy away and instead of getting rid of it, I ate it!!!  I gained six pounds from Halloween to New Years!  Not this year!!!  I’m gonna stay strong, how about you!?!? Stick with me during this challenge and we will not be part of the statistics.  Did you know that the average American will gain seven pounds during this time of the year??? Getting rid of those extra pounds was a lot harder than I expected and so not worth it!!!  You are stronger and tougher than you think. You have come so far on this program and you are doing awesome. Don’t give in. Change your attitude and you change your course. Be strong and keep working hard!

 

1. Wednsday- Cardio for 30 minutes and 30 minutes of upper body strength training.

 

2. Food- Don’t look at this clean eating as a death sentence. Don’t look at people around you who are eating fries, cakes and cokes with those big puppy dog eyes and feel bad that you can’t have any. Look at this journey as a way of life and re-train your taste buds to enjoy real food. If it has a momma and it came from the earth then you can eat it. If it was made in a lab, you should be cautious. Real food is so much more satisfying and fulfilling. All the other frankenfoods might taste good initially but it will numb out your senses. Lets get back to real food shall we!?!?!

 

 

3. Mantra for the day:  There is power in visualization.
Are you using the power of visualization in your life?  In your quiet time take some time to visualize how you want your life to look.  Take some time to envision what it would be like to run after your kids at the park without being in pain or being winded.  How would it feel to be able to shop at certain stores and wear certain clothes?  If you can see it, you can achieve it.  Keep pictures up in a special place that motivate you.  Keep a pair of jeans or a dress that you want to fit into.  Strive everyday to move towards your goal.  There is also a powerful motivating tool to show you what you’re fighting against.  Look at this picture the next time you want to reach for that unhealthy option.  Bon apetit!!!


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