Happy Wednesday! The week is almost over and I've caught myself getting a little off track lately with my nutrition. When things get busy, I get stressed which leads to me eating laffy taffy. I know, It's absolutely terrible and all chemicals but I LOVE IT!! So one of the girls I work with and I have decided to spend next week eating super clean and purifying our bodies. Not a cleanse but kind of. When I was looking for inspiration I stumbled upon this post from Tone It Up, so I wanted to share it all with you. We are strong, confident and committed.
Step 1: ♡ Visualize!
Visualization is KEY in reaching your goals and making your dreams come true. If you don’t believe (and see yourself) achieving what you want, it’s going to be that much harder to get there. One of our favorite ways to do this is to make vision boards! This sets your intentions in your mind while keeping you focused and accountable. And it’s fun! Grab a few magazines, some scissor and start finding images that resonate with what you desire. Focus on both long and short term goals like what you intend to accomplish in the next week, the next month and in the next year! Grab a few friends and make it a party. Don’t feel like getting crafty? Do it online ~ we love Pinterest!
Use visualization while meditating, during workouts, right when you wake up or as you fall asleep at night! All you need to do is feel yourself achieving your goals: See yourself getting stronger, running longer distances and making healthy choices—keeping it lean, clean & green!
Step 2: ♡ Commit!
Once you know where you want to go and you see yourself getting there, it’s time to commit! This is where you make a deal with yourself and say: I commit to getting stronger, healthier and happier. This doesn't mean you’ll never slip up or have an off day. It’s not about being hard on yourself. It just means when you slip up, you don’t give up! Read more about how to bounce back here!
Step 3: ♡ Action Plan!
The last step is to create an action plan to get you where you want to go! This is where you plan, prep and set yourself up for success! Think about what works best for you, right now and make it happen. Once you’ve visualized and committed to your goals, you’ll be able to see opportunities you might not have been open to beforehand. Your Tone It Up lifestyle is all about what works best for you and your schedule. Set that alarm 30 minutes earlier for your BootyCall and go to sleep a bit earlier too. Or if you’re schedule is tight, find some time to get that cardio in later on. Pack an extra set of workout clothes to keep in your car. Get those veggies chopped and ready to take with you the next day. Grab your calendar and schedule in those workouts! Use your Weekly Schedule for guidance.
If you’re on the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, you know exactly how to plan your meals throughout the day to help you achieve your heath & fitness goals! We recommend you take time once or twice a week to plan those healthy meals and prepare satisfying snacks! Sunday nights are our favorite time to plan for the week ahead. Remember, we also post the best combination of workouts for you to follow each week on Sundays! Just head back here to ToneItUp.com.
