Anyways... as a introduction to our new challenge, I want you to first go home today, and look at yourself in the mirror naked! Yes, I said it...NAKED! Tell yourself you are beautiful... (oh Gigi but I have fat everywhere..") SO WHAT? You are still beautiful.. If you're starting a new lifestyle already hating yourself you are not going to get very far.. The truth is, we take care of the things we love... If you don't feel good, you wont want to exercises and diet... You will just keep digging yourself into a dark place where you are completely unsatisfied with the person staring you back in the mirror... So before we actually begin this process.... Appreciate and love yourself...
Since we will be starting this on Monday May 2nd, I want to give you a heads- up of the things you need for this challenge...
(P.S. Al thought this is just 30 days, you should continue and adapt this to your lifestyle... you wont regret it)
Yoga Mat ( I got mine at walmart for 5 bucks)
Weights ( Walmart baby 5 bucks each)
Pick up a tea that appeals to you preferably green tea
Veggies and fruits to your liking
(Pick up Asparagus and Cucumbers for our 2 day kick start)
Everything you buy white buy in wheat,( Pasta, rice, bread)
Look online for ideas for low calorie snacks and choose your favorite
Lean meats ( chicken, fish, lamb, turkey)
Milk-Try to switch to skim or soy/rice
Extra: If you don't already have a scale consider purchasing one, it's important to keep track of your progress. I also would like if you got yourself a measuring take. I actually printed mine online for free and taped it together.. I 've also seen them at IKEA for FREE! Also get yourself a notebook just for this.. we're going to be keeping a journal... it helps allot!
I want to create a community on Facebook so we can all help each other out, so if you're serious about this..Let me know so I can send you the invite!
SO, if you're serious about this... get your stuff together over the weekend, and brace yourself for a new healthy lifestyle!
WHY AM I DOING THIS?
Because I feel so amazing after sticking to a lifestyle change this past year, that I want to share it with as many people as I possibly can.... Our bodies are our temples, and we must take it upon ourselves to preserve it.. Good health is a gift too precious to neglect!!!
