So today marks the first day of the last two weeks of the Gingersneezes Eats Clean Challenge. I hope you have all really been loving it, although I am sure there were parts you struggled with, like meal prep or resisting the urge to have a beer on a sun filled patio but all of the choices we have been making to this point are secretly helping each of us to form new habits. This habits will hopefully stick with each of us even once the challenge is over and hopefully you will have a whole arsenal full of new clean recipes that you love and wouldn’t want to give up just because some challenge is over.
At this point in the challenge I would encourage each of you to document (in a dairy, with an inspiration board, a point form list, etc) all of the parts of this challenge you have really enjoyed and to list all of the things you want to keep at and incorporate into your day to day lives once the challenge is over. Planning ahead of time like that can help you to stay focused on continuing with the healthy choices you have been making and it can also help to motivate you to kick it up a notch once you don’t have a challenge to be accountable to. So keep up all of your amazing work, you are in the home stretch!
I also have a fun new workout for everyone. After testing it out on my running partner during my rest week I have made some modifications and I feel that it is now a really great bodyweight workout with a touch of cardio. So like with most of the workouts I post do 2-3 rounds (ideally 3 rounds) and only take a minute break in between each round. Try and push through and go from one movement to the next without stopping other than to set yourself up for the next posture, this will help you to get the most out of it.
If you don’t have a skip rope no problem, just simulate jumping rope. So keep your arms moving and hop as though there is a rope in your hands and passing under your feet, you will get the same effects. Let me know what you think of this workout.
I hope you are all having a great week so far. Happy Wednesday!
