Plan So You Can Have A Winning Weekend!!!

20140328-151355.jpg
Happy Friday Everyone it’s Day 12 of our challenge and I am TGIF!!! How is the 30 Day Challenge going for you? What exercises are you doing? What new healthy recipes have you used or meals have you been coming up with? Well we are going into the weekend. This is the time where it is the hardest to stay on track especially if you have been invited to a dinner, a baby or bridal shower, or wedding. What is your plan when you get there? I highly recommend for you to come up with a plan and to stick to it when you get there. For example if you are planning to go to a restaurant try going to their website and seeing their meal options and see if they have the caloric values available online. If not then go to MyFitnessPal to track it in advance so you can make sure you stay within your calorie budget.

Remember mindless eating is the greatest enemy to your progress. Your success in weight loss is anywhere from 70-80% diet and the rest is exercise. If you fail to plan then baby you plan to fail and I know that each and everyone of you are winners so Let’s get it!!! Plan & Stick to the plan. Now let’s have a great & healthy weekend!

Let’s go!

Exercise Is Important… Get It In Early!

image

Happy Wednesday! It’s Day 10 of our #30DayChallenge & I want to know how your weigh in day went? Send me a message letting me know how you are doing! My tip for you today is to try to start your day off by exercising if at all possible. That way you can get it finished and you can move on with your day. I know it’s challenging to get up early in the morning but I promise you if can you get started it will make a big difference in helping you to be more consistent with working out. There have been many times where I had good intentions to work out after work but had to end up working late or something else came up that kept me from being able to go to the gym. But those days are over now because I am making the sacrifice and the commitment to get it done in the morning. Thank God for the grace to do this on a consistent basis! What about you?

Let’s get it!!! 🙂
