First I want to say that I hope that you like the new blog format and colors. 🙂 Fun Right!
Just wanted to give you an update on where I am on my fitness and coaching journey. So, as usual, I am above and beyond busy with work and family stuff, but guess what? This time I didn’t allow the daily grind to take me out of the game. Being a coach has helped to keep me accountable to the ladies that I’m helping because I can’t help them if I’m not willing to help myself. Go figure!
I’m also hosting a FREE – 30 day Fitness and Nutrition Group on Facebook. In this group the members are receiving tips and tools on fitness as well as meal planning and prepping. I’m sharing some of the “best practices” that I use in my day to day life, as well as recipes for slow cooker meals that I use when I know that I won’t have time to cook (i.e. after school activity nights). These tips really cut down on the amount of time and money spent in the drive through lines. Plus I know that I am providing my family with healthy and wholesome meals.
I’ve already completed my first round of the 21 Day Fix and I lost nearly 5lbs. Today I am on week 3, day 1 of my second round and I’m down 3lbs in this round. I’ve not been perfect but I have been better than I was before. Weekends are still hard because I tend to not be a regimented and I don’t eat on the same schedule that I do when I am at work all day. The biggest change, outside of weight loss is the inches that I’ve lost. I’ll have final measurements soon, but having your hubby and kids point out that your pants aren’t fitting so great is a good indicator. J
As I finish up this 2nd round of the 21 Day Fix I’m starting to think about what program I want to do next. I’m thinking P90X3 is on tap for me. The 30 minute workouts are the perfect 1…2… punch for me and I can get it done and move on. Right now, extremely long workout are not feasible for me so I’m always looking for something that I can get done with minimal impact to my day. The 90 days will be a challenge because I think that I have a bit of ADHD and if I look at it from a 90 day perspective, I might be a little intimidated. If I look at it as 3 separate 30 challenges (phase 1, phase 2, and phase 3), then I can be successful.
Part of implementing any new thing in your life is understanding who you are and what your specific needs are. As for me, I get bored, I know that, but the beautiful thing about Beachbody is that there are a ton of programs to choose from. Pick the ones that will work best for you, wherever you are on your journey. My fitness journey is not yours and yours is not mine. All I can do as a coach is to help you find that thing that you love and push and motivate you to be your very best. I can be your biggest cheerleader or your toughest drill sergeant depending on the situation.
