How Badly Do You Really Want It?

Happy Tuesday!!! Today is day 19 of our #30daychallenge!!! This means we are in the home stretch with 11 more days to go in this March 30 day challenge and in the 1st quarter of 2018! How are things going? Are you on track to meet the goals that you set for yourself at the beginning of this year/month? How is exercising going? Have you been consistently getting a workout in at least 3-5 days a week? Are you having a hard time getting started on remaining consistent? Try setting a non-negotiable target of at least 8,000-10,000 steps a day or at least 30 minutes of #exercise per day. This plus implementing a Ketogenic diet (or whatever your dietary preference is i.e, Vegan, Whole30, Paleo) consisting of eating clean, organic or Non-GMO low carb vegetables/fruit, protein & healthy fats (no sugar) is essential. This plus integrating an intermittent fasting eating window of 12-8pm has helped me meet and sometimes exceed my weekly weight loss goal of at least 2 pounds per week.

My question to you today is how BAD do YOU really want the RESULTS you are seeking? Are you willing to lay aside all excuses and get it done? Are you willing to try new strategies (Keto, HIIT and/or Intermittent Fasting (IF 16 hrs daily) to see if it will help you to get over your weight loss plateau? Do your research (Start here – https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/intermittent-fasting-guide ) and consult with your doctor to be sure it is safe for you to do. Lastly here are some tips to getting consistent exercise in daily.

1. Make exercising a priority, do what you have to do for you! Aren’t you worth it? YES YOU ARE!!!

2. Work out 1st thing in the morning before you go to work or right after!

3. While watching your must see TV walk/jog/run in place, do sit ups, push-ups, stretching, lift weights…etc.

4. Move whenever you get the chance, force yourself to take a walk break at work on your lunch or on your 15 minute break.

5. Get a workout partner and hold each other accountable to a work out time & place.

6. Get a Fitbit device (Check out their website to discover their devices http://www.fitbit.com ) and join a community of other people trying to meet step goals! Let me know when you do so I can add you as a friend & challenge you to daily step challenges through the Fitbit phone app.

7. Just DO SOMETHING! Even if it’s just for 10 or 15 minutes a day be consistent & gradually increase your workout time in increments of 5 minutes each week. Make it a goal to eventually get to 30-60 mins of exercise per day for at least 5 days a week.

You CAN do it! I believe in you! Make the last 11 days of this challenge great, healthy & active!!!

Let’s get it!!!

Our December #30DayChallenge Starts Today!!!

Welcome to our December 2017 #30DayChallenge! I’m excited that you are starting this month off right by taking this challenge with me! Can you believe that #Christmas AND the #New Year is right around the corner??? So let’s be absolutely intentional about meeting our #goals for this month!!! 🙌🏾

We will continue to eat a #Ketogenic diet that includes eating clean with no processed foods & no added sugar or starches. This also means eating moderate amounts of lean protein, generous amounts of healthy fats including nuts and seeds, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, grass fed butter and more. We will also eat vegetables & low glycemic fruit such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries! Our other goals for this challenge is to exercise (3-5 days weekly), eliminate/reduce stress in your life and commit to getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep daily! In addition I recommend you switching to eating organic and/or Non-GMO food. Below are labels that show you how you can identify foods that are organic and/or Non-GMO.

If you are on the fence about starting this challenge do what you can. Start small by committing to exercising at least 30 minutes or more per day for at least 3 days per week and by eliminating all processed foods & added sugars.

Let me know if you are with me by responding to this post or by sending me a personal message by saying, I’M IN! Click on my blog website link below for the full Keto 30 Day Challenge details and to follow my blog. As always consult your doctor before beginning this or any 30 day challenge.
