It’s Sunday Darling !!!!
This means that today is your last rest day before we begin our May I Be Healthy challenge. Although it actually begins May 1st, I figured that two extra days of being healthy never killed anyone and it’s easier to begin on a monday than in the middle of week.
In order for any challenge to be successful, you need to plan:
– When and Where will I train ?
6 a.m at the gym? 8 p.m in my basement ? Devise a plan of how many days a week you wish to stay active and stick to it religiously!
– Do you have the necessary equipment ?
-running shoes -shorts – shirts -headbands -decent elastics to hold your ponytail -training gloves -towel -locker (gym) -iphone wristband (for runners because holding your phone or putting it in your sports bra is pretty uncomfortable) -sports bras …
-How will i stay motivated ?
Set a precise and achievable goal. Decide that by the end of the month, you want that black dress to fit. Make sure your goal is achievable and DO NOT FIXATE ON A #.
– Nike Training App – Nike Running App – Instagram Fitness pages – PumpUp App – a picture of the Victoria Secret models as a screensaver (it works) – a great workout playlist
What will I eat ?
– Go grocery shopping with a list. I know Doritos are 2/4$ but fight the urge and stick to your list:
Fruits and Vegetables: Avocado, Asparagus, Carrots, Celery, Broccoli, Spinach, Kale, Apples, Bananas, Oranges, Watermelon, Berries, Pineapples… the options are endless
Meat & Substitutes: Fish & Chicken… beware of beef and other red meat… Tofu, Beans
Dairy; Almond Milk, Greek Yogurt, Kefir
Carbs: Sweet potato, whole grain rice, whole grain bread, quinoa
Build your own grocery list and read nutritional values because knowledge is everything.
