Continue with these...

Then....starting Monday
Reduce your sugar intake!

*I could do a whole speal on why sugar is bad for you. But, I know you all know that it is. It's very addicting, it causes your blood sugar to spike and drop and it leads to disease! Trust will feel much better and be so much healthier when you reduce or get rid of sugar in your diet. I'd like you to get rid of white sugar. By eating less processed foods, not adding it, cooking with it or anything! I said reduce...because you can still use things like honey, pure maple syrup, stevia if you would like to cook with instead. Do it and feel and see the difference!

Happy Friday!!!

Next weeks added nutrition challenge is NO SODA

I know this will be super hard for some. You might have to deal with a headache for a week or 2. But, I promise you it will be so worth it!!

Reasons to stop drinking soda
1. first of all you'll end up drinking more water if you stop drinking soda. 
2. You'll save money!!
3. Increases your blood pressure
4. Destroys your teeth
5. It may lead to diabetes and other diseases that will also cost you high medical expenses.
6. Will lead you to not be able to lose weight or it will cause you to gain weight. 
7. Is linked to osteoporosis
8. May cause heart disease. Drinking only 1 can of soda per day, regular or diet- is associated with a 48% increased risk of metabolic syndrome, a key processor of heart disease and diabetes." according to the American Heart Association. 
9. Is linked to kidney stones and liver problems. 
10. It contains an ingredient banned in 100 other countries. About 10% of soda flavors contain BVO, or brominated vegetable oil, which is banned by the World Health organization and 100 countries. 
11. Your soda likely contains either aspartame or high fructose corn syrup. If you drink diet soda, your pop has some sort of artifical sweetener. If you drink full-calorie soda, chances are it has high fructose corn syrup. Both of these ingredients are very bad for you!

I could list many more reasons why drinking soda is bad! :) Cut down, do all that you can this week to stay away from it! 

What do you want more? A Healthy body and lifelong health or that soda you wanted in the small moment. 

Next week
Take a multivitamin

at least 2 servings of veggies

Doesnt' it sound delish!?

The best way to stay on track with your eating is to keep a food journal. Use My fitness Pal, TwoGrand App to keep track with pics OR just use a notebook! Allow yourself a "cheat" meal or "no strings attached" meal every week or every 4 days. This has been proven to help you stay on track without huge binges!

Fit Mama HIIT- 8-6

This workout is not timed, do 1, 2 or 3 rounds and comment that you finished! Burn a lot of calories and keep that metabolism going for hours after you are done!

Gym Boss timers are great or you can find tabata apps that work great for timing this type of workout. If you don't have either of those simply watch the clock!

60 second pushups
30 second high knees
60 second pushups
30 second high knees
(60 second break)

60 seconds out & in jump squats 
(jump out with feet wide-squat, jump in with feet narrow- squat)
30 seconds mountain climbers
60 seconds out & in jump squats

30 seconds burpees
(60 second bread and repeat)

11 total minutes for this workout. Can do more rounds according to your level and you can always modify the movements to your level. 

Keep drinking that water!!
A good amount of water that you need for your body is 1/2 your body weight in oz. If you weigh 150/2= 75
That means its really good for you to drink 75 oz of water every day!

You can do this!!
No more excuses.

How are you doing drinking your Water??
Remember it's the Nutrition Focus this week. 

If you want to officially join us on this Monthly Challenge then fill out the form here. You will be sent some helpful Nutritional guidelines via email. 

Most people think that eating healthy has to be Black or White. Most of us have an all or nothing approach (some health cases it has to be that way). But, if you take that approach eventually it will lead to a binge!
I know it's hard. If you decide to have your favorite treat once in a while it helps to limit yourself to stay on track. Say "I will just have 1 slice of pizza." "I will have 15 chips."
Rather than going crazy on pizza, chips or whatever it may be. You can still allow yourself to have that but with limits.
The Black and White mentality often leads to failure because it isn't always realistic. Eat as Healthy as you can most days. There needs to be grey areas. Just use logic within the grey areas. Allow yourself the predetermined portion and move on and move it out of site! :)

You can do this!!

Fit Mama HIIT- 8-4

Welcome to the Monthly Challenge!! If you did not fill out the form and want to be apart of the challenge go here to fill out the form. All those that joined has received Nutrition guidelines and food list via email. 
Somethings you may need for the workouts are: dumbbells up to 40 lbs extremely recommended, box or steps to jump on, jump rope, kettlebell, resistance band. If you don't have those things, no worries use what you have on hand and be creative in your movements. 

-Workout of the Day-

3 rounds for time
(preferrably heavier dumbbells, use jugs of milk if you have to ;))
15 Plank ups 
(up, up, down, down is 1 rep)(if you can't do these, hold a plank for atleast 45 seconds)
(regular lunges to modify- alternating legs each rep)

*record your time in the comments

Nutrition focus this week is to drink at least 64 oz of water. 
Drinking enough water is so important not only for your results, but for every part of your body... your organs, processing of your food, your biggest organ on your body- your skin, and soooo much more!!
Most people do not drink enough water. Sometimes when you feel hungry you might actually just be thirsty. Replace those sugary drinks and sodas with Water!!

If you are not taking a multi-vitamin I also want you to get on board with that. Over the counter vitamins usually just sit in your stomache and don't actually give you anything!! Bummer!
If you truly want vitamins and minerals from a supplement to fill in the gap of what you are not getting nutritionally I highly suggest Juice Plus+, a whole foods vitamin.
I don't put my name on a product or start using a product that I have not done the research on. You can walk into a whole foods store and find a whole foods vitamin, but what I love and trust about Juice Plus is all the resarch that backs it up! You can also sponsor a child up to 4 years with every purchase of an adult. Very cool! Very awesome company and product that truly shows results. Less sickness and better overall health! You can never get the amount of fruits and vegetables needed without it. 
I highly recommend you get on Juice Plus. Ships internationally too. Let me know if you have any questions about that. 

One more action step as we begin!!
Post your short term and long term goals in the comments!

You can do this!! I Believe in YOU!
Can't wait to see and hear about your results!

Why & SMARTER Goals!

What is your "Why" for wanting to get healthy? What is your "Why" for wanting to get in shape, eat healthy or lose weight? Is it to be an example to your kids and family? To get in a good habit for life long health? To fight off disease and be alive and well when you are in your 60's? Think of the big picture and keep that in your mind!!
If you haven't already I want you to write down your goals!! 
A SMARTER goal is:
*Specific- needs to be specific
*Measurable- something you can measure, that you can see improvement with. It doesn't always have to be lbs lost or inches, it can be improving in movements, being able to do 10 full pushups, etc. 
*Attainable- Attainable but aggressive.  Set your expectations high but be realistic for you. 
*Relevant- Needs to be relevant to what you are trying to accomplish, in this case with your Health & Fitness
*Time Specific- it helps to give yourself a date to work towards. I like doing 30 days at a time.
after 30 days (or however long you gave yourself)
*Evaluate- Take a step back & Evaluate how you did &...
*Revise- anything that needs to be revised. Correct course if need be and continue on with a new goal!

*Visualize yourself reaching your goal & making it to that finish line for that goal!! There is power in writing your goals down. Write it down and you will accomplish it!
*A good trick is to write it in first person.  Write it like you already accomplished it!
 *Your 30 day goal should follow the SMART goal guidelines.
 example- "It's August 30 and I lost 10 lbs and 2 inches in my waist."
This is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, & Time Specific.
 *Make a new 7 day goal each week that can be less specific. These are little goals that will help you make it to your big goal.
example- "I will keep my nutrition on track this week and workout at least 3 days."
 *Make a sticky note of your 30 day goal and put it somewhere you will see it everyday!! On your mirror, in your car, on your fridge...
 I encourage you to take some time and think about your goals and write them down!! This is an important step.

Share your goals with me to be accountable!!
This type of Goal setting can pertain to any part of your life!!
See your goals written, in ink on paper will have a powerful effect on your mind.
