Total Body and Mind Makeover for Increased Success

This week I am excited to have lost 11 pounds since the beginning of September. I will work really hard to make sure these lost pounds don’t find me again! Laughing I take full responsibility for the added weight because even though I am pretty consistent with my exercise program I notice when I am traveling a lot I often don’t make wise choices when dining out! I’ll plan on just tasting the fries and then before I know it they are all gone.

Since the fantastic call I had with JJ Virgin the end of August I have been using some of her great tips and found they are working well for me. The first thing I did was dump my Splenda and quit diet coke. I never knew that between Splenda and diet soda I was actually increasing my craving for sweets. This has been working great for me and I can now pass by the candy aisle without grabbing a few candy bars for the way home!

The second thing I began was really watching my portion control. I now have 4 – 6 ounces of protein, lots of vegetables and greens and a small serving of complex carbs along with 1 serving of good fat at lunch and dinner. I FEEL GREAT!

The third and probably the most important thing I began was the “burst training” which is going 30 – 60 seconds all out at least 8 times a day. When I’m riding my bike I’ll do a 30 second burst ride for 3 minutes and do another one. What’s good about this is you do not have to do them all at once and I’ve done bursts on my bike and then I may run up the hill on my driveway 3 or 4 times. The bursts have been proven to reset your metabolism and set you up to lose more weight!

Then of course I have really been into motivation and training preparing myself for my BIG EVENT in Las Vegas in two weeks. I have been listening to 1 -2 hours of motivation and training every day! I’m keeping my head on straight so if there are a few bumps along the way they won’t bother me. I’ve also been taking time for me! I’ll sit and watch a movie (comedy or love story) and NOT FEEL GUILTY about it. I’ll get a massage when I need it, take a long hot bath to unwind and just nurture myself!

Last but not least I keep up with all my health needs. I get annual eye tests, physicals, mammograms, and dental check-ups. If I’m not doing what I need to do to maintain my health then nothing else really matters!

So, here’s my challenge to YOU. WHAT DO YOU NEED TO WORK ON IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS? Do you need to drop a little weight? Do you need to work on your mental health? Is it time for you to make your appointments for physicals and things you’ve been procrastinating about? (By the way ladies, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month so make sure you get your mammogram!) Whatever is preventing you from living the full and complete life you were born for is just a tiny obstacle in the grand scheme of things. SO TAKE AT LEAST ONE SMALL STEP TOWARD BECOMING A BETTER YOU RIGHT NOW!
