Ever notice how exercise and good nutrition sometimes drop off your to-do list when you’re busy? It shouldn’t be that way and you know it.

With our Self Love in 20 Group we’re going to teach you to prioritize you! You’ll have the option to complete our brand new 4 week 20 Minute Workout program.

We’ll check in daily with our sweaty selfies to hold ourselves accountable to our workouts. You’ll also get a daily self-love tip from one of our coaches, along with nutrition tips, mindset tips, time management and our weekly zoom chats.

 

We have so much fun in the smaller community and dive in to nutrition, offer meal ideas, recipes, & more. Plus, you’ll get the benefit of 4 experienced coaches, busy moms, nutritionists, personal trainers, & health coaches.

 

Now let’s chat about the workouts.

Job1 is our newest program and will combine Jennifer’s no-nonsense training style, 20-minute workouts, and your choice of two super-simple nutrition plans to help you build a healthy routine and stick with it.

All Jennifer asks is that you shift your focus: prioritize yourself the way you prioritize your job or your family.

You’ll tap into a wealth of benefits: more self-confidence, increased strength, and ultimately tone + weight loss! Make your health your top priority and you’ll see major improvements in almost every part of your life.

Watch this short video for a sneak peek into the program: 

A 20-minute workout may not seem like enough to get results, but Job1 will change your mind!

In less than 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, you’ll hit multiple muscle groups every single day for a total-body sweat that leaves you feeling stronger, invigorated, and accomplished.

You’ll devote three days to strength training. Jennifer knows the best jobs keep you challenged, so each strength workout features a different structure to help you make progress and build strength without adding bulk.

 You’ll also have one day of endurance cardio and one day of HIIT to help build your stamina, improve your energy, and dial in the fat burn.

 Jennifer is famous for her amazing motivation in the gym, and especially on the bike. Yes, that’s right! Job1 is the first program with the option to include indoor cycling as a cardio option. The program will include four, 20-minute indoor cycling workouts each week for you to swap in as needed.

They’re totally optional, but if you have an MYX Bike — or another stationary bike at home — you can choose to do these workouts on your cardio days to add variety to your routine.

You’ll need light, medium, and heavy dumbbells, as well as resistance loops to do Job 1. For the optional cycling workouts, you’ll need a stationary bike.

9 Things I Wish I Learned Sooner….

𝘐 𝘞𝘐𝘚𝘏 𝘐 𝘬𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝟿 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘐 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘺 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘪𝘵𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘫𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘯𝘦𝘺…⁣
Truth is, starting my first diet at the age of 8, trapped me in a lot of unhealthy beliefs about myself and my body. ⁣
I quickly became my own worst critic and while I could share a whole different set of 10 nutrition and fitness tips I learned (𝘴𝘦𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘧 𝘪𝘵 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱𝘴), I wanted to actually share some of the mindset shifts I had to make along the way. ⁣
Years of dieting taught me to stop trusting, respecting, and accepting my body. That being said, here are the beliefs I wish I adopted sooner to preserve that trust & respect. ⁣
1. Stop being so hard on yourself. ⁣⁣⁣
2. “giving it your all”⁣⁣ does not mean you have to be perfect or have it all together.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣3. Give yourself time & grace to fail, make mistakes, and learn. ⁣
4. Find patience for yourself as much as you do for others. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣5. Stop trying to shrink. ⁣Allow yourself to take up space. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣6. Focus on what is going well and those who want to see you doing well.⁣
7. Appreciate your body for all that it does for you. ⁣
8. Forever work towards loving yourself more.⁣
9. Speak to yourself as you do to others, and treat your body as you would others. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
𝐁𝐨𝐧𝐮𝐬 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐧: be authentically you 💛 even if that means the introverted family person who loves to workout and is secretly an 80 year old grandma on the inside⁣
𝘚𝘈𝘝𝘌 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘢𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘰 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘬𝘦𝘦𝘱 𝘨𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 👏
What is one thing you wish you learned sooner on your journey?

Break the Cycle

If you overate this weekend, this is the best time to break the cycle. ⁣

𝘐 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘴𝘰 𝘨𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘵𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴… ⁣

Around the holidays I would restrict so much, that when the holiday would arrive, I’d undoubtedly overdo it, feel like I needed to start from scratch, put all the “bad” foods off limits again, and usually find myself off track again by Friday. ⁣

Then I made this shift and I want you to give it a try… ⁣

Instead of getting “𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘬” or going back to only “𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘯” foods or throwing away all of the cookies so you can’t eat any more….⁣

I want you to eat normally. ⁣
Drink a lot of water. ⁣
Eat veggies, lean protein, and foods that make your body feel your best.⁣
Have a leftover cookie if you want it. ⁣

When you stop restricting in order to reach your goals, and start fueling your body to feel your best, a crazy shift happens. ⁣

You can actually stay on track, because there’s never anything to fall off from. ⁣

𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐲. ⁣

You can’t undo this past weekend, but you can change your actions going forward: ⁣

Eat more fuel, more consistently. ⁣

And focus on 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 your best, not 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 your best, the rest will fall into place.

Did you have a good holiday? What is one thing you did to take care of your body today? ⁣

Are you lacking motivation to workout right now?

𝘞𝘩𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘱𝘪𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘯𝘰𝘸… ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s dark, it’s cold, and every night around 4:30pm I’ve been cringing at the thought of getting started with my workout. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Staying home on my couch with netflix & dinner seems so much more appealing. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m tired, my energy is low and honestly, my motivation to workout has been slim to none. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
𝐃𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥 𝐦𝐞? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As a trainer I see this happen every December: empty gyms, ghosting clients, and canceled workouts. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
𝐈 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐨 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐫𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐞. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘨𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘧𝘦𝘸 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴: ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
→ Thanks to the holidays, you’re busier, more stressed, more overwhelmed, and making a workout a priority on your endless to-do list just doesn’t seem practical. ⁣⁣
→ Time changes, darkness at 4pm, and cold weather are never fun. Less vitamin D, less sunshine, and impaired sleep may lead to more stress, anxiety, depression, and just overall lack of energy. ⁣⁣
→ You’re experiencing a little bit of that all or nothing mindset. If you’re just going to be eating all the Christmas cookies later, does a workout really make sense? Once it’s January it will get easier and you’ll be able to start fresh. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But here’s the good news: it’s possible to make some changes now so you don’t have to put off your health until January. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Take action and 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐑𝐓, even and especially when you’re not feeling it. The hardest part is starting and usually once you get going you’ll be just fine.⁣ 

So how do you actually do that?

  • Promise yourself you’ll just make it through the warm up. If after that, you still want to stop, full permission. (disclaimer: I’m 99% sure you won’t) ⁣
  • Remind yourself of how you’ll feel afterwards. As cheesy as it sounds you really don’t ever regret a workout, and you’ll most likely feel great after. Also keep in mind how you’ll feel if you skip it, likely a little disappointed, regretful, and still low on energy and mood. ⁣
  • Recruit a buddy. It’s a whole lot easier to show up for someone else than it is yourself. Sign up for a class (even if it’s online) to hold yourself accountable, meet a friend in person, via zoom, or simply send a check in text once your workout is complete. ⁣

Here are some other simple tips to try:

  • Have a Game Plan of what you’ll be doing
  • Schedule your workouts into your day like an important meeting or appointment
  • Put a new playlist together, listen to a podcast, etc..
  • Get outside and go for a walk instead
  • Take a different class or try something new
  • Track your progress (log your workouts, use a step tracker, watch, etc…)
  • Work towards a goal (think chin ups, push ups, lifting PR, etc…)
  • Sign up for a race, event, or competition to train for
  • ⁣Hop into a challenge
  • Remove the guilt! If you need rest day, take it.

Do the best you can and remember that something is ALWAYS better than nothing. The best thing your workout can give you this time of year is therapy and a big old energy and endorphin boost. It may be the very thing you’re missing to feel more motivated, so it’s time to stop the vicious loop by taking action. ⁣⁣
