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!!!

It’s #Goal Monday and I hope you are ready to hit the ground running on a great & healthy day and week! As I highlighted in my last blog I believe it’s essential to take this #keto fitness journey one day at a time. Many of you have shared with me that you have tried many diets in the past but have failed simply because it’s difficult to maintain and sustain that way of eating. Many fad diets are extreme and unhealthy, but I truly believe and the research suggests that the ketogenic diet is healthy, sustainable and produces results.
Now back to our goals!!! What is your goal for today? As you can see in my infographic above my goal is to have at least 60 minutes of exercise, eat keto foods only & to get at least 7 hours of sleep tonight. When setting your goals start off small, especially if you haven’t been active in the past or if you are coming off of a long break. The biggest takeaway is to start where you are. Forget about yesterday and don’t worry about tomorrow. Stay present in this moment and do what it takes to meet your goals for today. God’s grace is sufficient for you for TODAY. You CAN do it!!!
Let’s get it!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏻💪🏾💪🏻🙏🏾🙏🏻🏃🏾♂️🏃🏾♀️🏃🏻♂️🏃🏻♀️
