Gearing Up to Spring into Shape!

Nothing worth anything is easy. Thanks to the curse everything takes sweat and hard work! I am resigning myself to working hard to get back into shape! I am admitting to you all that I am not in the shape I was and we need each other to reach our goals.

In order to be ready to start our challenge on Monday, you should click here to learn how to measure. Write your measurements down on your points sheet. Don't agonize over them, but pray over them and know they will change! Believe they will change! 

If you don't have a HEP, also peruse this blog for ideas. My HEP is NO WHITES and more Greens! That simple! Also, I found it so helpful to take a free day. 

My coworker sent me this video this morning! So true! We just drag our feet to exercise. Maybe, it will make you laugh and get us all moving. If you still aren't sure where to start, there are several blogs and videos posted on the side panel here. 

Can't wait to see us rock it and be fit and in shape by May!

Springing with ya,


PS. Don’t forget to introduce yourself on our facebook page. If you’re not invited, let me know here in the comments.

Week 7 - Rippin' and Sprinin'

I am not a fan of Jillian Michael's and I don't promote her lifestyle, but her workouts have made a difference in my physique in the past. This is why her Ripped in 30 video came to my mind this past week.

Some how a pact was made with my hubby over the weekend, and now I am pressing play on this dvd for 30 days!  "Ripped in 30 is comprised of four 24-minute workouts based on Jillian's best-selling body shredding 3-2-1 interval system: 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs."   These workouts are intense! Want to join me?

The upside is, I have been active and have been working out already. The dvd's just make me get more intense and consistent. Do you remember a dvd or workout that changed you? Are you willing to go there again to get the change you desire? We need to encourage each other to "JUST PRESS PLAY"!

I am still cutting out white sugar (except for a couple free days, I allowed myself) white flour and the extra carbs. Pasta is so hard for me to cut out totally and I occasionally still take a fist full.
Our HEP has to keep getting cleaner and better in order to make changes in our physique.

This is the end of week 7, so please weigh in and measure! There should be more change happening. If not, we should be seeing what is working and what is not. Share with with us, brain storm with us, and lets keep springing to the end!

Be encouraged!

Yikes I forgot Week 3!

Well, I didn't quite forget to measure, but with last week being our spring break, I let the measuring slide. We need to measure this week, though. Tomorrow, Friday, is our day to measure for week four and post your point results.

Holy Jim Trail in Corona, CA
The workouts didn't stop though during my spring break. We struggled through a long run on the beach, enjoyed a lovely 3 mile hike in the mountains, and worked out at the gym a bit. I know it's tough to workout and eat healthy on a vacation, but hopefully we all kept our goals in mind.

As we finish out our first month on our Spring in-2 Shape challenge, what are some changes you have experienced? How are you feeling? Share with us how your HEP is affecting you. What exercise accomplishments have you seen?

I am starting to reap the benefits of the added exercise. Not only is my fit bit hitting the 12,000 step mark, I set, more often, I am also seeing more of an increase in calorie burn. I am able to run longer and  am getting a little faster. It's a slow climb back, but I feel it coming.

I am reaching out to you for motivation too.

Let's encourage one another to good works. (hard workouts and good HEP!) :)

Springing with ya,

The Tough Get Going! WK2

Yeah, it's getting tough to keep going with the newly started plans. I  planned to exercise 5 days a week, running on Tuesday and Thursday, gym on Monday and Wednesday and possible bike ride or run on the weekend.

My HEP is NO whites! No white sugar (right now no added sugars) No white flour (focusing on sprouted grains in small portions) No white salt.

All has been going very well, but I took a free day yesterday. It's not even the weekend yet. We just finished entering our third quarter grades, and I wanted to celebrate a little! However, it was just an excuse that I can not use again! I chose to do 30 minutes of yoga instead of run. This is totally acceptable, but I  just know I need to run tonight now.

What are your plans? What struggles are you feeling? Let's share here or by email to encourage one another. We all need the encouragement.

We had a speaker today who hit the nail on the head. I want to share the main points here, because I feel it is so essential for any one's journey.
