Spring into Shape!

Happy Spring!!

Finally, the weather is warming up and it’s almost time for muddy trail runs and wedding season!!

Remember, with the thought of white dresses and bikini’s in the very near future – every little bit of your diet and exercise routine counts! We can help you create a fitness and nutrition plan and most importantly STICK TO IT.

Making small changes will make for an easier transition into this healthy lifestyle. Remember, don’t cut foods out, but rather crowd them out with healthier choices. To avoid the temptation of something that is “off-limits” focus on eating healthier foods first, so you will have room for little to none of whatever you’re trying to avoid.

Don’t forget to incorporate some change into your fitness routine as well. Try a balance of some long distance cardio, intervals, resistance training, HIIT circuits and stretching. Healthy lifestyle change can be uncomfortable, but it’s always worth it. Push yourself out of your comfort zone and spring into shape this season!

Set Yourself Up For Success

 If you fail to plan, you can plan to fail! Harsh? Maybe, but it happens too often not to address! Let me help you set yourself up for success by following my tips below:

Set Your Goals

Goals

Sunday is a great day to take a few minutes and figure out what your goals and intentions are for the upcoming week. Look at your larger long term goals and set smaller weekly steps to work towards them. No matter what you want to accomplish it is SO important to write it down. Whether those goals include planning your wedding, your career, your relationship, health or are hobby related, write them in a place where you know that they will be visible and as a bold daily reminder to you.

Prepare Your Food

Figure out a few options for healthy meals, prepare a shopping list and head to the store! When you return, prep and cut all of your fruit and veggies. Having pre-cut produce makes for a great on-the-go healthy snack.  Also, take the time to grill/bake/cook chicken (or another protein) and prepare a few large salads. This will be a huge time saver through out the week, your healthy lunches (or dinners) will be prepped and ready to go saving you time and healthy eating excuses. Plan for success and stay on track!

Schedule Your Workouts

Set weekly workout goals for yourself and schedule your gym time, classes and cardio exercise into your calendar. Writing these workouts into your schedule ahead of time will hold you accountable and eliminate time excuses. Plan ahead, schedule the time and workout because you love your body – it’s the only place you have to live, so take care of it!!

Restore Your Mind – YOU time

Take at least 30 minutes and shut off all electronics and gadgets, go for a solo walk or run, do yoga or just sit quietly. Try to focus your energy and mind on positive thoughts and a restorative outlook. Rather than focusing on negatives (which we all tend to do), remind yourself of all that your are thankful for and everything amazing going on in your life. Remember that your thoughts in the morning set the tone for your entire day, so set the intention to wake up every morning with a confident mindset and joyful heart.
