My Plan to Recommit

Several weeks ago, I made a huge life change. I moved about 50 minutes away from where I grew up, and was living. To some, this may seem like absolutely no big deal at all, and to me, while it excited me, it didn’t seem very far. How different could things be?

Then I moved and realized just how much of a routine I was stuck in. To be honest, this excites me. I love my new home, my new location, and am so excited about a bunch of upcoming opportunities, but at the same time, the transition has taken longer than I thought, and has taken a bit of a toll on me.

Nothing major has happened, but I’ve found that little healthy habits I tend to stick with have slowly started to slip away. That doesn’t mean I’m sitting on my couch or eating oreos all day but I’ve stopped doing little things like meal planning ahead, Sunday meal prep, taking my fish oil daily, drinking enough water, mobility work, drinking Shakeology every day etc…and I need to get back to it.

My favorite co-pilot for my new commute.

So I wanted to share my plan for all of this week you. I’ve decided to set some goals for the next couple weeks to get me back on track. Here are my goals for the next two weeks…

  • Continue participating in challenge groups (send me a message if you want in! I have one starting September 15th)
  • Get to CrossFit at least 4 days per week
  • Commit to at least one day of running/cardio per week
  • Complete 2 days of additional accessory strength and skill work per week
  • Take fish oil daily
  • Spend 10 minutes on mobility daily
  • Drink my Shakeology daily
  • Follow my meal plan
  • Complete the 3 day Refresh this coming Friday through Sunday (again if you want to do this with me, send me a message!)

Now, you tell me….what are some of your health and fitness goals for the upcoming weeks?

P.S. My friends and I are starting a 21 Day Challenge group on September 15th and October 6th. We all check in daily with a healthy meal and workout picture and motivate each other to get healthy and fit. I only have 3 spots left on my team in the 15th group so please let me know ASAP if you want in. Anyone can join and it is totally free, you just have to be willing to participate daily :) 

If you’re interested in joining me on the 6th as well, please let me know. I only have a limited number of spots on my team, and they’ll fill up fast! All I ask of you is that you be willing to be honest, work hard, and check in daily with us. 

How do you get in? Add me as a friend on Facebook and send me a message there or send me an email to [email protected] 

 

 

Partner Workout

Something about working out with someone else always motivates me to push just a bit harder than if I’m exercising solo! Here is a partner workout to complete with a friend. As a team you will go through the workout 5 times, splitting up the exercises however you like, but there’s one catch…only one athlete can work at a time!

Why Shakeology?

One of the most common questions I’ve been getting lately is “why shakeology?”. In this video I break down why I love shakeology so much and how much of a difference it has made for me personally. Watch it and let me know what you think….

Have questions? Comment below. I’d love to answer them. Also if you are interested in giving shakeology a try, you can simply head here or send me a message and I can get you started or set up with a sampler pack!
