Day 21: Tips for Beating Workout Procrastination

Today was supposed to be about giving tips to blogging procrastination, but I’m not a blogger, so instead, I will be giving you 5 Tips on beating workout procrastination!

  1. Get Started!  The hardest part is actually starting, but I have never met anyone who regrets starting the workout once they have finished.
  2. Get it out of the way first thing in the morning!  The same way you should do all of the hard stuff first!
  3. Think about your goals.  How bad do you want them?
  4. Are you a parent?  Be the role model you want to be for your children.   Teach them to make their health and fitness a priority by leading from the front.
  5. Do exercise that’s fun for you! If it’s not fun for you there’s less chance you’ll get it done.  For example I HATE steady state cardio, but I can enjoy Interval Training for my Cardio!

Day 12: How to fight Burnout

So this post is supposed to be advice on how to handle summer blogging burnout, but since I do not by any means consider myself a blogger, I’m going to write about summer fitness goal burnout.

Because this society views fitness in short term, versus long term, people spend the first 3-4 months of the year shedding their holiday wait and prepping for the summer only to slowly fall into a downward spiral to repeat the same toxic cycle over when the new year hits.

So, how do you break the cycle?  I get that summer is hard because you have more BBQs, More vacations, more time to go to the beach, go out, but what about the goals you’ve worked so hard to achieve?  How do you keep them in Check?  There’s no need to avoid going out in order to avoid gaining weight.

10 Tips to Making you Summer body, your winter Body:

  1. Keep Alcohol to 1-3 drinks a week
  2. Don’t drink your calories in juices, sodas, etc.
  3. Make healthy choices at restaurants!  Most places have a light and fit menu with more realistic portion sizes.
  4. Request cutting the salt a restaurant uses for the dish in half, or excluding it altogether because chances are they hide salt in the sauces without realizing it.
  5. Don’t skip your workouts!
  6. Replace a meal with a healthy shake!  I’ve been drinking the same meal replacement every day for 4 years now and love it! Definitely helps keep me in check when I’ve gone too far passed moderation!  Click here for more info!
  7. Don’t forget your water!  Avoid retaining water, skin break outs, and dehydration from the summer heat!
  8. Swap the fried for the grilled!
  9. Swap the processed sugars for REAL sugars found in fruits, vegetables, and grains.
  10. It’s ok to eat the pizza and have the slice of cake!  It’s just not ok to eat more of that than you do whole foods!

Day 9: 2017 Goal Checklist

Like I said in one of the earlier June blogs I set goals in the following categories

  • Household
  • Business
  • Personal Fitness

We have officially owned our house for a year now and have done all of the smaller remodeling projects and are down to the final 6 projects: The kitchen, the first floor tiles, roof, balcony tiles, half bathroom, and the master bathroom.  The goal for this year was to finish the kitchen, first floor, half bathroom, and balcony tiles as it’s a project that would get done all at once.  Then next year we were going to re do the roof and possibly the master bath, but the insurance said otherwise.  This year we had to re do the roof which means another year with an outdated kitchen and floors that get a spec of dust and look dirty despite just having cleaned them.

My fitness goals was to get my strength back to wear it was pre-surgery and pre-injury, which is in progress!

Business wise  have hit 25% of them and the other 50% are on track to being hit while the final 25% need a miracle…BUT I’m still working for them. I have also recently added more goals to the list and are getting done as well!

What has helped me turn by “New Years Resolutions” that no one ever keeps into goals that actually get reached is keeping them in constant site.

Day 3: June Goals

I would have preferred this part of the blog challenge be on the first of the month as that’s when I write down the month’s goals as well as check my progress for my quarterly and yearly goals.

I set goals in 3 categories

  1. Household (my husband and I)
  2. Personal Fitness Goals
  3. Business Goals

For the purpose of this blog I will go over some of my business and personal fitness goals for the month as my husband prefer I keep our household goals to between us. So here we go!

  • Personal Fitness Goals
    • If you follow me on instagram, facebook, twitter, or youtube, you know that in May I was dealing with a lot of gastro, new found allergies, and hormonal issues.  So this month my goals are not focused on hitting certain weight, inches, or physical numbers, but on focusing on feeling like my usual self.  I want my energy back, the feeling of being bloated 24/7 to go away, the side effects from some of the meds to disappear etc.  So while I still plan on keeping with my healthy lifestyle, I will not be tracking anything to the T.  I just want to feel like my usual self again.
    • Get consistent with 5 Training sessions a week (3 powerlifting, 2 general fitness)
  • Business Goals
    • To test out the first 25% of my new ebook and begin putting it together.  The goal is to release this new ebook in December of 2017
    • Move 80% of my remaining apparel collection to make room for the new summer collection!
    • Get a record number of people started on their fitness journey with my fitness programs
    • Get 10 new people started on their nutrition program and into my accountability chat

June Blog Challenge

In an effort to further change things up on the blog before returning to strictly fitness posts I decided to hop on this June Blog Challenge I found scrolling through Pinterest.  Usually I blog 2 times a week so the first goal of this Blog Challenge is to hit all 30 Blogs.

Day 1: What do you do to express your creativity?

My entire business is an expression of my creativity.  I’m not much of an arts and crafts person, but I am more of a digital expressionist.

  • Apparel:  My apparel line is one of the main ways I express my creativity.  It is bold, unique, and not for the person who prefers simplicity.
  • Programs:  My 7 Ebooks are all different, use variation, and creativity to help others achieve their health and fitness goals.
  • Social Media:  As of right now I am the person who designs and creates 100% of the content for all of my handles.  I thoroughly enjoy putting everything together, coming up with the quotes, visuals, etc.  Eventually I know that I will have to hire someone to take on the content creation, but for now I am having so much fun with it.  One thing I do plan on always doing is being the person you speak to when you message any of my pages. I hate when people outsource their pages and have someone else to response.
