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.

Our August Keto #30DayChallenge Starts Today!!!

Happy Hump Day!!! I’m excited that you are starting this month off right by taking this #Keto challenge with me! When you make the decision to join this challenge you are making the decision to eat clean (no processed food & no added sugar or starches), 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 highly recommend you switching to eating organic and/or Non-GMO food.

If you are still 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.

Celebrating My Independence!!! Song to Inspire You!

Happy Independence Day!!! While I was on my way to the gym today I was inspired to create this quick song that you will hear on this video below. During the month of June I lost a total of 13 pounds and in July I am determined to do the same if not more. For those of you that don’t know I am turning 40 in September so I have a goal weight that I want to reach by my 40th birthday!!! As a result I decided to skip the 4th of July cookout scene and just hit the gym. Why? Because I’m on a mission and people who are on a mission don’t allow themselves to be tempted or sidetracked. If you are able to withstand temptation while at a cookout then more power to ya! But as for me and my house…Lol! Anyway let this song inspire you to love yourself enough to keep going and to never give up until you reach your goals!!! 

Let’s get it! Keto 30DayChallenge GetFit

What Are Your #Goals For June 2017?

#TGIF!!! Today is day 2 of our 30 day challenge!!! Are you ready to get it in this month!? What is your plan for meeting your goals for this month?

First things first! You must set a goal. Start off small, for example .5-2 pounds per week. Set your goal then take steps to meet that goal.  I recommend weighing in at least daily or weekly to see what your progress is real time so you can make adjustments if needed. Use MyFitnessPal or Fitbit to track your progress.

Tell me what your goal is for this month? Whatever goal you set, you must believe that you CAN do it. I am a witness if I CAN so CAN you!!! My goal for this month is to lose at least 2 pounds a week. 

Here are some tips for this month:

1) Pray & ask God for his help during this challenge. (Involve God in your journey).

2) Believe (Faith speaks what you believe & action follows).

3) Set your goal (i.e. 1-2 pounds per week).

4) Put your food and work out plan down on paper or type it up on your phone.

5) Execute the plan!

6) Share your plan with me and your accountability partner(s) & ask them to hold you accountable to your plan.

7) Measure your progress utilizing the scale to weigh in and MyFitnessPal or Fitbit to track your food intake and exercise.

8) Make adjustments to the plan based on your progress real time.

So tell me what your goals are and what your plan is for this month so I can hold you accountable too!

Let’s get it!!!
