Hello Team! I hope you are all doing well with the challenge! If you are new feel free to jump right in!
I struggled with February and March. There were so many birthdays! And you know what that means. WEIGHT GAIN! So I am starting over! Usually I would be depressed at my gains. I'm shocked I'm not! I can only use everyday to start again. You guys know I am OPEN and HONEST at all times. So I would like to share the fact that I SLACKED! I barely clocked 500 fitness minutes last month although I planned over 1,000. I ate ice cream like I had never tried it before and my alcohol consumption was INSANE! Between late February and all of March I went to a whopping 12 birthday parties!!!! I can't eat cake because I am allergic to gluten but I ate so much ice cream, chips and TONS of other gluten free snacks and food. There is no reason for me to beat myself up. I did it! I accept it and now I move on.
So if you haven't been doing your best and you find that you are not on task then guess what.........This is the month to start fresh!!!!
Welcome to the April portion of the Change YOUR Mind Change YOUR Life Challenge!
BIG Challenge- Lose 5 lbs
Eat a veggie at least once a day as a meal or with a meal (this could mean having a hearty salad or adding corn, peas, green beans, or cabbage to dinner or celery to your lunch.)
Eat a fruit at least once a day as a meal or with a meal (this could mean adding a banana to your cereal or oatmeal, grabbing an apple or an orange as a snack or adding grapes or berries to your yogurt.)
Add a weight belt, vest, hand weights, leg weights or any form of resistance to your workouts at least twice a week.
Water.......Water.........WATER is our BESTFRIEND! It helps motabilize body fat! Lets make sure we are getting the water our body needs IN!!! I am not requiring an 8 glass a day commitment. Too much water can actually be BAD for you. Just make sure you are staying hydrated for your workouts and as an added bonus grab a glass of water BEFORE your meals.
This months workout song: "Off the Wall" by Michael Jackson
This months phrase: "I BELIEVE "
This month change your mind about: SLEEP! Rest is IMPORANT. When the body doesn't get enough sleep you have a harder time concentrating and you don't have enough energy to get through your day. So this month DO NOT sacrifice your sleep for staying up late to watch tv, or do laundry or the million other things we do. How many times have you sacrificed an hour or 2 of sleep just to get some work finished? Well, DON'T DO IT THIS MONTH! GO TO BED!
Are you ready!? WHO IS WITH ME!?
