Day 20 & 21 of February Sweetheart Challenge!

Day 20 & 21

Hello weekend!  I hope you had a fantastic week and ready to have a great weekend.  I had a great week and I’m looking forward to a great marrieds event our church is hosting on Saturday night as well as seeing my son play in his band on Sunday!  Life is busy but exciting.  I hope you’re all doing well:)))

 

 

1) Saturday- Activity Day!!!  Today I’m going to dance!!!  What are you doing!?!?

 

Sunday- Take your rest day.  Super important to let the body heal and recover:)

 

 

 

2) Seven Rules to Live By:


3.  Mantra for the Day: You are Enough!
As an overachiever, workaholic, type A personality, OCD type person, it can be tempting to think that you need to be doing more.  “If only” becomes the constant mantra in your head…”if only” I was skinnier, healthier, faster, richer, prettier, a better wife, mother, employee, employer, etc…..At the end of the day, what is the ROOT!?  Why do we aspire to all these things!?  What are we trying to gain!?  There’s such a vacuum and an insatiable appetite for approval.  What exactly are we trying to prove!?  Who are we seeking approval from!?  Take a deep cleansing breath and know that you are already approved!!!  You are already accepted!!!  It doesn’t matter what others think of you.  It only matters what God thinks of you.  Honestly, if we don’t surrender to that, we will be constantly looking for approval in so many places and we will keep coming up empty handed.  You are more than enough.  I believe in you and I’m grateful to be in this journey with you.  Just take it one day at a time:)))

 

 

 

 

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

 

Day 20 & 21 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 20 & 21!

Happy weekend!  Enjoy some down time with friends and family.  Remember to plan ahead for the following week.  When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Plan to succeed!

 

 

1) Saturday – Do something active with friends and/or family.  It’s always better to workout with someone:)))  Find a workout buddy!  Dogs make a great workout partner!

 

Sunday- Relax and rejuvenate:)))

 

 

2) Food- Clean Mocha!
Learn to make “clean” treats:)  Just because you’re eating clean doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself.  Make this mocha!  Yummmmmm:))))

 

3) Mantra for the Day- This Too, Shall Pass!
This is a great mantra!  I have used it often in my life:)  In our fitness journey, we will have times of victory and times of defeat.  Remember that nothing is permanent.  We have the choice to change every single day, every moment, and remember that every new breath is a new opportunity.

 

 

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

Day 9 & 10 of 30 Day Challenge!!!

Day 9 & 10!

It’s the weekend!!!  Enjoy this time with the people you care about.  I love this time of the year.  We get to spend more time outdoors and we get to enjoy more time off in the summer.  Don’t forget to enjoy life.  We can get so busy and so determined with our goals and dreams that we forget to stop and realize how good we have it.  Take a moment….stop what you’re doing and just enjoy what you have.  No matter what’s going on, you have a lot to be grateful for.  Whatever we focus on we will get more of.  Focus on all the amazing blessings in your life.

 

1) Saturday- Outdoor Activity Day!!!  Enjoy the great outdoors.  Go for a swim, a bike ride, a hike, a run, etc….Keep trying to find new hobbies that will keep you active and fit!

Sunday- Rest & Relaxation Day!!!  It’s very important to replenish your body and let it rest. Unwind your mind, body and spirit.  Take a day off.  It’s OK.  The world will not stop:)  I promise:)))

2) Mantra for the Day!!! Overcome FEAR by ACTION!!!

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

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:)))
