Recap of the week! #AprilFitChallenge

As many of you know, I launched the #AprilFitChallenge, where I challenged myself and anyone who wants to join to get into gear with a weekly training plan I have put together! Basically, anyone could join and each week I send out a new training plan, lot's of encouragement, and a smoothie recipe via email! It's been great, and I been posting plenty of pictures to the challenge album on our facebook page of me doing different moves for each day.  

I just wanted to give a little recap as the week comes to a close!

 

The #AprilFitChallenge really has been challenging for me! I have enjoyed so much the accountability that it brings! For example, last night I had the opportunity to hang out with my friends or go to the gym, and I chose the gym because I knew I had others counting on me to complete that days challenge! I was so thankful in the end, and proud of myself for the decision I made.

And, I have definitely been sore all week! Which I LOVE! I love feeling that I have worked hard! Plus knowing that I have a planned workout really motivates me to make healthy choices throughout the day! On the food I eat, and to drink more water! When you know you have a plan to workout at a specific time with a specific program, you are more aware of the health choices that you make, and I need that.  Sometimes I find myself eating something then when I'm done I realize I didn't even think about it, just did it!

So anyways, it has been a great week...now I am about to jump in the car with Big Sis to head to Dallas to meet our mom and friends to run the Dallas Color Run tomorrow morning! I am so excited!

day 5 pullups

Here's a post of pullups which is in todays challenge! I love this photo because you can see my muscles, and I'm looking forward to comparing these photos in several weeks to see the changes that have occurred!!

Good Luck if you are doing the challenge and remember to TAG US in your updates!

Weight Training Week 1

Today we started an April Weight Training Challenge! 

The GOAL is to challenge our followers to push themselves harder by partnering weight training and cardio workouts together!

HOW? 

We are doing this by creating a weekly training plan that we are emailing out with encouragement, and a smoothie recipe! We believe that by partnering these workouts with eating well and lots of water, you can start to see changes in your body!

FALSE BELIEFS:

Many women believe that lifting weights only bulk you up! BUT when partnered with cardio, you are burning fat and toning!

WHY JOIN IN? 

It's about to be bathing suit/bikini season, DUH!!

I decided that I need to challenge myself after trying to bench press 25's on my bar yesterday and not being able to lift more than one! I was appalled! So I decided that I needed to push myself into gear, and I need encouragement and motivation to do that! So I have created a facebook album where we will be posting the challenges, plus encouragement throughout the week! It will be a place for everyone involved in the challenge to share their thoughts, etc. We want to develop more community and encouragement!

IF YOU WANT TO JOIN! Just comment with your email, or message us on facebook and you will get the weekly challenge email! I guarantee you will be challenged!

Let's do this together!
