Clean, Set, Log – Week 3

It’s time to get serious. We are two weeks into our Beach Body challenge and so far our focus has been on purifying our bodies. Besides frequent trips to the bathroom, are you feeling better, more energetic? Begining this week we tighten the strings. It’s time to really focus on our true motives and goals.

Clean

* Clean out the pantry. We all have families but our goal to a healthier body will be healthier for the whole family. Get rid of ALL processed foods, all sugary treats or anything that has been pre-sweeten, cookies, crackers, ice cream, etc. It’s time to focus on eating foods as they come into the world, meaning fresh fruits, vegies and natural meats. Remove what tempts you and reach towards fresh, natural and preferably organic foods. Think about it being temporary but work to make this a life long focus.

Set

* Set your goals and put them in writing. What is it that you hope to accomplish over these 8 weeks? What does “beach body” mean to you? How do you hope to feel at the end of this challenge? Your goals and motivation will help you “set” your workout schedule. If you are trying to maintain what you have, then working out twice per week will keep you there. If you’d like to make changes to your body, then think about adding additional workouts. If your goals are lofty then you’re workout schedule needs to be lofty. We suggest 6 workouts per week, 2-3 toning workouts, at least 2 cardio workouts and 1 day per week that is “fun fitness”. Think about getting a game of volleyball in, hiking one of the “sisters” or playing a game of frisbee.

Log

* It’s time to record EVERYTHING. Get yourself a simple notebook or a great smart phone app and record every sip of water, every bite of food and schedule your workouts in. Record your sleep as well, as rest is an important part of your health and fitness. Stop by the front desk before or after your next class to get your original numbers too as you should know what those are and use them to motivate you forward.

This week is harder but not impossible. Focus on the end results and know that this is short term at the least with the hope that the results will motivate a permanent change.
