How to Successfully stick to a fitness plan.

Working out for me is such a HABIT that for me it is weird when I do not do it. I am just so used to working out, that I feel bad when I don’t. Now Do Not take this as I am being obsessive, or ridiculous. I know when my body needs a break and believe me when I feel that way I take it!

So how did I get where I am now? What keeps me going?

Research shows that it takes 21 Days to form a habit. Think about that. That is only 3 weeks. Does not seem like a  real long time am I right? So if you have to torture yourself for such a short amount of time for a healthy habit, for something that will improve your life why not do it? Seriously?

So what you need to do…

  • Schedule it. Make it as important as a Doctors appointment or a business meeting. You don’t skip those!
  • Pick a time and workout at that time daily. For me it is first thing in the morning. Weekends too unless its a rest day. I get up drink my pre workout, pee (hahahah TMI), then hit play. Now sometimes it does not go as planned. But does that mean I say fuck it and throw in the towel? Nope. It will make me feel better. Somedays, a 30 min workout takes triple the time because my kids need me. They have gotten better with it though so this does not happen as much anymore.
  • Let your significant other know this is important to you. That you will be working out and you need this time.
  • Remember that it is not selfish to take care of yourself. Sometimes you need to put you first.
  • If your day does not go as planned and you cannot fit it in. Do Not get discouraged just move your schedule back one day!
  • Quitting is not an option.
  • Have a Strong Why. What do I mean by this, this is the reason why you started on the journey to begin with. Really think about it. It has to be so strong that you will always go back to what you were doing. 10881666_10153186596365921_86908588061412141_n
  • Triggers! Set out your workout clothes, go to a gym then leave a gym bag in your car, set a reminder on your phone, have an accountability partner text you, put on your workout gear as soon as you wake up, this list is endless. Basically do whatever you need to so you Move your ASS!
  • Pick something you actually like to do. If you like to run do that, lift, dance, yoga, I don’t give a shit. Pick something. Want to workout at home, great, a gym great. Just do something.
  • Don’t get discouraged. Sometimes the scale won’t move. Think about everything that you are doing that is good for yourself! Remember those little NSVs!

Hope this helps you!! Keep moving forward. Don’t compare yourself to others. What good is it going to do for you? You have no idea what leg of the journey someone else is on! Be supportive of one another for the same reason. You supporting someone else may help you stay motivated!

Life According to plans…

How many of you planned out your life, you plan out your day by day? Hows that going for you?

If my life went according to my plan. Well it wouldn’t be the way it is right now. Which I believe is perfect and exactly what was meant to be.

You see I never planned to be a teen mom, I never planned to marry my high school sweetheart at the age of 21. If I hadn’t of made the mistake of being a teen mom, I probably would only have one kid. Why? I have endometriosis, I had trouble conceiving my 3rd child at the age of 25. And I opted to have a partial hysterectomy at 29. So being a young mom, although at the time. Seemed like the worst thing to happen was a blessing.

Make a choice to see the hurdles you face as a blessing. Choose to live a positive life.

This does not mean you should not be goal setting!

Set goals for what you want to do in your career. Financially. Where you see yourself in a year or 5.

Your health goals! What the hell does that mean? Well you want to lose some lbs? Write it down. Write it down and give your self a time limit on when you want to achieve it. Be reasonable though. You are prob not going to lose 30 lbs in a week.
Goals for your family, whether you want to be more present with your fam or planning vacations and time with your significant other.

Just because your life did not turn out the way you had intended it too does not mean you can’t keep rolling forward. Be thankful for what you have. Enjoy your life

21 day fix meal plan

So yesterday was the day after Halloween, in my newsfeed all day I see pics of candy and Beachbody coaches how many green is this. LOL funny, but why does the meal plan work. What the hell do you do, and keep talking about it. Because whether you are making a joke or being truthful. You are still getting it out there!

In the past I have done Weight Watchers and just plain clean eating. Weight watchers really does work. But I got sick of counting points. I also would save all extra for beer and if I knew I was drinking eat carrot sticks and half a sandwich so i could drink my points. Not really healthy Kala. LOL. If weight watchers works for you, continue on with it! Just use it the right way. I lost weight on in but not healthy. I would sometimes use a bulk of my points in one meal and everything else would be free foods.

Clean eating is ideal because it gets your body to the ideal weight. But you can have too much of  a good thing sadly. Learning how much is too much can be hard.

The 21 day fix meal plan teaches you how much of each food group to have in a day. You can follow a plan to lose and a plan to maintain. Once you get the portion sizes down you don’t need to containers anymore. But it really taught me how much to eat and of what. Surprisingly some of the time, i was not eating enough. Others I was eating too much… Just because the salad you order has 8 cups of veggies, does not mean that you have to eat the entire thing…

It also has helped me plan the day way better!! I plan out dinner then I know how many containers I have left to use throughout the day!

So, how do you know how many of each do you get? You get a formula based on your wight and if you want to maintain or lose. Then you are put in a calorie range.

From there you get a certain amount of containers to eat through out the day. Easy! Right?

It is a ton of food! You are not hungry! And once you are finished you just know how to eat right. If I indulge too much, I just go right back to it because when I am on it I do not feel like I am missing out on anything!

So you want to try the plan, but you prefer to workout in a gym… You can get just the containers and meal plan here.

The workouts are all 30 min long and you go through a variety of exercises each day, there is a modifier and 2 separate plans. The regular and extreme. Regular 21 Day Fix, I believe that anyone can do. Any fitness level! There is someone there modifying every move so you can follow her if necessary. The 21 Day Fix Extreme is advanced. It is for anyone that feels ready after the 21 day fix and wants more of a challenge. This too has a modifier but it is more extreme.

I love both of these programs, they are always ones I go back to. The moves are basic and effective. Autumn Calabrese definitely knows what she is doing.
