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!

NonScale-Victory

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!

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!

Unknown-1

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.

Unknown-2

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.

21 Day Fix

21 Day Fix 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.

Refresher

So I have not written in a while…

To be honest for a good few weeks I was just rolling through the motions. (is that a saying? Hmmmmmm… Whatever.) But I was not practicing what I preach.  I freaking hate that! How can I tell people eat healthy, workout, the 2 go together. If I am only doing one of those? Working out, is such a habit for me that when I don’t I feel funky. Think of me as Rain man with dumbbells. But I was eating horrible. I believe in moderation and cheats, but I was being ridiculous. I would have one good day and I am not even sure if that would count, because I would be sneaking shit. Then it would be 3 days of binging. Out of Control.

I am a Beachbody Coach. I do that because health and fitness are a passion for me. I started this journey to be a Better Version of Myself. Improve my mood and my health. Oh and smaller pants was a perk. All for the kiddos and me. Right?

I started to feel Fluffy. My clothes were tight. This makes me moody. I hate being uncomfortable in my clothes, some days I felt like my skin was tight… You can’t escape that shit. My energy and my mood was bad, I did not want to do anything. Leaving the house was a chore.  I started to feel like depression was coming back. EFFF that.


My family and I went away this weekend. It was great. Seriously had a wonderful time. Pigged out again. Drank too much again. Came home to feel sluggish.

Monday morning, I hop on the scale… WTF. I knew it would be bad. But not that number. I usually say the scale is just a number. But when it is going up and you feel like crap, that number matters. There was an unused 3 Day Refresh in my cupboard. I had no intentional plan to do it yet. This pushed me. I had to get out of my funk. I had to find my passion again, which is helping others with their health. But first. I had to help myself. I had to put me first for a little.

So I did it.

And today I feel AMAZING! Seriously. I have not felt this well rested in forever. I don’t feel like a slug I leaped through my kitchen at 5:45 AM. My husband looked at me like I was insane. Super normal BTW, I am a weirdo.

My Results were the best they have ever been ( I also Started the 21 Day Fix Extreme again).

So here they are…


I lost 5.8 lbs.


5 inches


I gained my better mood and energy. Also the intention to keep eating healthy and allowing moderation again. I do not want to feel like I was. Or act like I was (Bitchy).

So now I ask you! Are you ready to do something for yourself? Feel happy and healthy (you can totally tell when you are healthy.) If that answer is finally YES! I want to help!!

ATTENTION Stay at Home Moms… Or Dads

Have you lost yourself. I mean seriously? For a while there all I could relate to was being a mom, and it is pretty awesome. But what happened to the me before I had kids? To be honest, I was so young I hadn’t even found myself yet! Then you have this great little miniature you (which is scary as hell sometimes). You’re kind of floating, lost in being just a Mom (Dad) that you don’t really know how to relate to anyone. Except how to talk about your kiddos. Right? Because everyone wants to her how your 2 yr old went pee on the potty! (Exciting Shit, but unless they are in the same situation do people really care?) 

So I was lost, then I started working out and I heard about this little thing called being a Beachbody Coach. I was already doing the programs, they were fantastic, I wanted to help and connect with people. So I figured why not… Right what did I have to lose? So I signed up. I became a coach.

I was introduced to this community of people, who got me!! I became not just a mom. But a wife (who had also gotten her body back RAWR), a Friend, a Team Mate, a Leader, and a Motivator. I have bonded with people and opened myself up to so many possibilities. I love and believe in myself now. I know who I am and I don’t give a shit what anyone else thinks about me, or this “thing” I am doing. Because If i get one person to Find and Believe in themselves again, if I get one person to get off of their ass and do something that will benefit them, I am happy.

All of this started from One little word… YES.

So I want to ask you something? Why not YOU?

Now hiring! Get the PASSION back in your life!

Business

Can we talk about something that I never really bring up? Im not really sure why I don’t. To be honest I think its the reaction from others. Like Im going to hound them to join me in this “cult” or keep bugging them to buy a program. That they’re going to be like “Oh you’re a Beachbody Coach, thats such a load of Bull Shit.” Why do I care. Seriously… I freaking love my job. And I would never hound anyone you don’t want in on this. Fine. I don’t care. You need to do what works for you! These programs, have completely changed my body. I would not promote something that does not work. I am not a liar. I never was, in fact Im really bad at it and my moral compass does not allow it. wpid-wp-1434575470044.jpeg

Can we talk about the Business I build. ME… From my kitchen table or the couch. From my phone at the mall playground or park bench. Because I stay home with my kids.11403341_10153549715820921_4325088675068332010_n-1 This baby is all mine. and although I may have dropped the ball a bit this summer because I was out of town 4 out of 6 weeks and Having a blast. I still was bringing in a weekly income with minimal work. I was living it up. And to still be getting paid while not really doing anything. Pretty freaking awesome. Am I right?

So what does it take to do what I do? Well a big part is working on yourself so you can be a better person, like personal development. You can’t be Debbie Downer and help people change their lives.

 tumblr_mlxakp15K61s0pj15o1_400

Think about it. Would you want to talk to Negative Nancy about getting in shape? Nope.

Be a product of the product. Well Hello I love all the products, I drink the Shakeology. So why not save some money on it and help other people achieve the best results possible while they are on they’re journey. Do you have to be at your goal to be a coach? No, showing you are working on yourself. Makes you more relatable sharing that we are not robots. Life happens, shit happens. You are working on being better you are not a machine!

Refresh

Talking to people. Inviting them to join you, Inviting them to challenges, or free groups. Finding out about them. This is up my alley social media is a way for me to connect with adults. So if I message you to say HI. Thats all thats about I am not going to be like you should buy this… blah blah blah. I want to have an adult conversation.

This job, which does not feel like work to me at all. Has connected me back to the outside world. I feel like a better mom. I have a piece of me back. You know the one that was not just all about her kids. Although I have been a mom for almost 13 years now. OMG WAHHHHHH

If any of these describe you being a coach may be something you would like…

  • Goal Oriented
  • Coachable
  • Working on yourself is a priority
  • Want to help others and enjoy it
  • Health and Fitness is a passion
  • Want to work for yourself, set your own pace, work the hours or minutes you want
  • Use Beachbody products already (seriously if you are using them why not save the $$)

Questions for me, seriously you can ask me anything I will be honest! Post it in the comments or shoot me an email! Kalarw@gmail.com

Thinking you may want to give coaching a try.
