Hey Everyone! Its June AND its a Monday! There is no better time to get started on a healthy lifestyle, get back on track or switch things up. I have been doing a pretty good job of staying on track- so this month I am going to focus on switching things up!
This month I would really like to see the following changes out of myself:
1. Get some money saved for Summit in Nashville next month
2. Get back on a focused everyday schedule with my running
3. Start getting my Insanity Max:30 workout done in the day so I have more time for other things in the evening
4. Kick butt in this Dash Diamond Training that I am participating in.
5. Really kill it in Body Beast.
6. Try the 3-Day Refresh for the first time.
So it seems like a hefty list but luckily I have the energy and the right frame of mind to get it all sorted out. My job gives me the flexibility of being able to get my workouts in during the day thankfully, that will free up my evenings after work strictly for my 10k training and Body Beast. Its really important to me to spend ample time with my dogs and keep the house up so getting back on the IM30 schedule I was doing during my first round will really help with all of that.
I have really started to notice some minor changes in regards to the weight training so I am really excited about that! It is only encouraging me to want to get to the Station gym and lift more. I cannot stress enough how Body Beast is for women too. Many people equate lifting weights as a man's exercise but women have muscles too and they need to use them! I'm posting a couple of videos so you can see just how easy it is. My main goal is to just get some nice toned arms.
Another integral part of me being able to stay on track is my planning, grocery shopping and meal prepping. This way, I don't make rash decisions and grab something bad out of hunger.
Natural Peanut butter, apples, bananas, lemon, strawberries, melon, frozen mango, romaine salad mix, baby spinach, baked seasoned chicken with wild rice and broccoli/yellow squash meals, ground turkey/spinach/feta meatloaf muffins with green beans and baby red potatoes meals, squash and wild rice to go with a turkey burger meal.
Not pictured: feta cheese, skim mozz. string cheese, cooked whole grain spaghetti with natural pasta sauce and mini angus meatballs.
I'm going to be doing a 3 -Day Detox probably next week but I will post about that when it comes- that is going to need/deserve its own entry.
So it looks like I have got a pretty good game plan laid out ahead of me- now is just the time to execute!
Just your average 30- something who finally found the motivation to make a fit and healthy lifestyle change. Now I'm trying to motivate others to do the same!
