5 FIT TIPS FOR THE NEW YEAR

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!

  1. 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:

  1. Promote hydration
  2. It is a good source of Vitamin C
  3. It supports weight loss
  4. It improves your skin quality 
  5. It aids digestion
  6. It freshens breath
  7. 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!

LEAN IN!!!!

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!.

Or maybe the 7-10 pounds you tacked on between Thanksgiving & Christmas?!

Or…. perhaps the classic “this is my year” attitude??

I’m sure there’s a million and one things that play into the reasons but the results have proven in a recent study that the TOP 3 new years resolution in America are to:

*EXERCISE MORE*

*LOSE WEIGHT*

*Improve DIET*

Forget saving for the future or spending more time with family – most people kick off a new year with a goal to somehow some way improve their overall well being!Most common new years resolutions, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, A goal without plans is simply a wish, fitness motivation, fitness inspiration, inspired mom, Beachbody, 3 day refresh cleanse beachbody ,Pittsburgh, New year new you, new years resolutions, help with weightloss, online support group, online health and fitness support group, tips for healthy living, tips for weightloss, fit mom, clean eating, hammer & chisel challenge group, Top Beachbody Coach, Elite Beachbody Coach, Elite top team, resolutions into results

Yet, LESS than 10% of those people are actually successful in achieving their resolutions!

Why?

They don’t have the tools!

They’re afraid of change – they fear failure – they don’t know HOW to get started AND continue!

But here’s the deal…if you make a few temporary changes the results will simply be that – temporary. You won’t truly acheive what you’re setting out to do unless you make a CHANGE!

A change in the way you think – act- believe and yes – a change in your LIFESTYLE!

So – what’s the deal?

For starters – its much easier said than done!

Making a lifestyle change – a HEALTHY lifestyle change isn’t always easy.

Some people will doubt you, some may not support you, some may even  say negative things and you may fear your ability to stick to it long term or when not at home. You’re afraid you don’t have the time or the money – But these are all just excuses – if you have a plan – you can overcome every single one of them – and then some!

AND I CAN HELP YOU!

Committing to a healthy eating and a consistent exercise routine may be HARD. But so is living in a body that you’re unhappy with.
CHOOSE YOUR HARD. 

Then take action.

I joined a challenge group.

An online accountability group filled with other women who had similar struggles as I did – similar fears – and similar goals – TO LIVE A HEALTHIER LIFE!

I picked up a 21 day fix challenge group, followed the advice of my COACH, and joined a group!

I pushed play – in my home – for 30 minutes a day. I checking to the group for accountability, I took the advice shared, I utilized the meal plans and recipes that were suggested and low and behold – I GOT RESULTS!

So I ask you all to take this as a personal INVITATION to make this your year.

Your time to shine and your time to FOLLOW THROUGH with your commitment – your commitment to BE HEALTHIER! TO BE THE BEST YOU!

I’m kicking off my RESOLUTIONS INTO RESULTS challenge group January 4th and I am looking for 10 people to join me!

Join us and we’ll do this TOGETHER!
