Good morning friends! I hope you are all having an absolutely FABULOUS morning so far. Today's blog will be a quick one...today is JANUARY 30, 2014 and I have one question for you: How is your Fitness Goal for 2014 going???? Now after working as a Professional Life Changer (Nationally Certified Personal Trainer) for 12 years now, I have seen it all. EVERY January, the gyms are PACKED with people who say "THIS is the year I decide to GET.IN.SHAPE!" I have mentioned to you in previous blogs that I do not believe in personally making New Year's Resolutions because I enjoy setting goals for myself QUARTERLY throughout the year rather than wait for the NEW year to hit!
Since the first month of 2014 is almost complete, where are you in your fitness goal? January is ALWAYS a busy time of year for me personally with new people ready for me to change their life and touch their soul thru the POWER of FITNESS along with my "Lifers" who are continuing to work on their Fitness Goals while setting new fun ones along the way. Where do you stand? If you find yourself starting to slack off...I say, don't give up! Remember, it's all about the JOURNEY! As I tell my weight loss clients, it's a MARATHON not a SPRINT...
My advice to you is take a "selfie" of yourself every 4 weeks of your progress. Don't be shy! Do it...you can take it so you can see that YOU are getting one step closer to where YOU want to be in your Fitness Goal. Is it to be STRONGER? LEANER? LOSE 1-2 lbs a week? GAIN Muscle? Run a 1/2 to full Marathon? LOSE the BABY weight? There are many, many more goals...if I haven't named one of yours, WRITE IT DOWN to remind yourself that this is important to YOU and you are on your way!
Now since I'm talking about taking a SELFIE, let me post a pic of me TODAY after I had a killer Boxing workout! I like the feeling of my muscles aching and pumping after I get done with a tough workout...WARNING: I'm not wearing any makeup and I'm not posing like it's a Modeling photo shoot. I'm just standing there saying to myself, "Girl, you ROCKED your Boxing session and you WILL feel this tomorrow!" See pic below:
Hey! This is to remind myself that HARD WORK IS WHAT IT TAKES! And I just worked hard...892 calories burned!
If you're looking for a fun CHALLENGE to do at your own pace, LIKE my Glisten Girls Fitness Facebook page and join in on the GET RIPPED ABS Challenge that has been going on all month. It's never too late to start! This Saturday is the last day of it, but scroll back to DAY 1 and go at your own pace. By the end of this, you will feel STRONGER, feel LEANER and be impressed with how long you can hold a plank! You will also feel inches lost around your waistline. But remember...you MUST consume 64 ounces of water a day and get in at least 5-6 servings of Fruits/Veggies a day. Healthy eating is key!
