What Is The Word That Embodies Your Why For Keto and Exercise?

Happy Hump Day Everyone!!! It is day 8 of our Keto Diet and Fitness #30DayChallenge!!! We have officially completed one full week!!! How did the first week go? What challenges and successes have you experienced so far? What questions do you have?

Today I just want to make sure that you have identified your why for taking on this challenge. The reason I am asking is because it is your why that will keep you grounded, motivated and will catapult you to your desired end goal. My why summed up in ONE word is Healthy. I want to be healthy in every area of my life so I can be actively engaged with my family, make an IMPACT in my sphere of influence, to fulfill my God given purpose for living and to live long enough to be actively engaged with my grandchildren, great grandchildren and beyond. All of these things cannot be done well if I’m not healthy.

So my ask of you today is to identify your why and embody that why in ONE word. This will help you to focus on meeting your goals!!! Write this word on a sticky note and put it on your bathroom mirror so you can be reminded daily! If you don’t mind sharing type your ONE word in the comments below or send me a personal message.

Let’s get it!!!

Our January 2019 #Keto Diet and Fitness #30DayChallenge Starts Today!!! Let’s Get It!!!

Welcome to our January 2019 #Keto and #IF #30DayChallenge! I know you are ready to get this year started off Healthy and STRONG πŸ’ͺπŸΎπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ!!! We will eat a Ketogenic diet that includes eating clean with no processed foods & no added sugar or starches. The macros for the Keto diet include 75% fat, 20% protein & 5% carbs.

You can utilize the MyFitnessPal app to keep track of your daily macro intake. This 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!

If you want to take your fat burning regimen to the next level eat your meals during an 8 hour window(12-8, 1-9 or 2-10). The benefits of intermittent fasting is life changing and I am a witness as I’ve lost weight, my cholesterol numbers are normal and I no longer have pre-diabetes!!! 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.

As always consult your doctor before beginning this or any other diet or fitness regimen.

Welcome to our December 2018 #30DayChallenge! I’m excited that you are taking this #Keto and #IF challenge with me!

This month I lost 13 pounds, my cholesterol numbers are normal and I no longer have pre-diabetes! 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.

Self-Care Matters!!! #WorldMentalHealthDay

Happy #HumpDay! Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay!!! In light of that I thought it would be critical to share the importance of making #selfcare a priority. Self-care is key to you staying active & sharp in the game of life. One thing I’ve made a priority is exercising daily and striving to get at least 10,000 #fitbit steps in a day, eating healthier, getting adequate sleep and reducing stress. Why??? Not just for my physical #health but also for my #mentalhealth.

It has been proven that aerobic #exercise (walking, jogging, running, swimming, dancing, cycling..etc.) helps reduce depression, anxiety and helps in releasing feel good hormones that improve your mood. What are your self-care #goals for today? Remember its not just about your physical fitness but your mental and emotional fitness as well! If you are standing on the sidelines of #life, its time to get back in the game!

Lets Get It!!!
