Happy New Year everyone! New Year’s is always an exciting time to dream big, set goals and focus on your dreams! I won’t say I am big on “new years resolutions” however I do believe there is something special about the fresh start to the new year as an opportunity to reflect and dream!
Once you set your goals, you need to create a plan on how you are going to achieve them. That is where routine and tips to stay motivated come in. Here are 5 fit tips that I use daily to help me get my workouts in and eat healthy!
- LAY YOUR WORKOUT CLOTHES OUT THE NIGHT BEFORE
This helps you so when the alarm goes off you simply use the 5 Second Rule principle by Mel Robbins: 5-4-3-2-1 pop out of bed!
Then, get dressed in your already prepared work out clothes and drink the Go Go Juice or your all natural pre-workout! Click here to get my pre-workout now! The lemon flavor is my favorite but we have mixed berry and fruit punch as well!
2. START YOUR DAY WITH 16 0Z. WATER TO HELP MEET YOUR DAILY WATER QUOTA
Drinking water first thing in the morning wakes up your internal organs, gets your digestive system moving and helps you meet your daily water quota! I always recommend to my clients to aim to drink at least half your body weight in ounces per day. So for a client weighing 150 pounds – I would recommend 75 ounces of water each day.
I like to go to bed with a full glass of water by my bedside and commit to drinking it first thing upon waking up! You can also keep a cup by the sink and when you brush your teeth drink a glass!
3. START YOUR DAY WITH WARM LEMON WATER
I began drinking warm lemon water when doing the 3-day refresh cleanse and its a habit that just stuck with me!
Healthline says that ‘Lemon water is known to do the following for your body:
- Promote hydration
- It is a good source of Vitamin C
- It supports weight loss
- It improves your skin quality
- It aids digestion
- It freshens breath
- It helps prevent kidney stones’.
4. SALAD TIP
There is no need to give up the foods you love just because you want to live healthier!
If you LOVE ranch but know it is not the always the most lean choice, try diluting it with some lemon juice! I love the zest it adds and honestly it actually spreads over the salad so much easier! A little goes a long way!!!
I’ve been making little side salads daily the last week and with the cucumbers and peppers all chopped and ready lunch is complete in about 5 min and I’m loading up on the greens!!
5. JOIN MY VIRTUAL FIT CLUB SO WE CAN KEEP EACH OTHER ACCOUNTABLE AND MOTIVATED TOGETHER!
Each month I run an online accountability and support group for my clients to help them get results with the programs and meal plans they are following.
It first begins with a discussion of where they are – where they are trying to go – and what road blocks they see in their way.
From there we pick a fitness program that best fits their goals.
Why do I do these? Because ACCOUNTABILITY WORKS my friends!!!! Purchasing a program isn’t “hard” – but following through with the commitment you made and keeping that mindset in tact long after the day you hit purchase can be HARD.
Because LIFE HAPPENS.
That’s where the groups pay off…because when you are sharing your GOALS and heart and connecting with other women realizing we are all on our own journey just trying to do our best…you automatically WANT to succeed so you can all celebrate TOGETHER.
The information in my groups span from weekly meal plans, to recipe ideas, to tips to stay on track to just DAILY MOTIVATION…and of course sometimes there are some fun challenges in the mix too!
Not only have I seen this pay off first hand for MYSELF but my challengers tell me DAILY how its the SUPPORT from the GROUP that helps them: get up before work to exercise – or skip the break room donuts – or pass on the monthly office birthday cake – or whatever it may be!
There’s POWER IN NUMBERS and it is my HONOR to coach all of my clients each step towards their goals!.
