This week has been mentally taxing so I need to develop a gameplan. I realized that I have not been eating enough calories. I would love to meet my daily requirements, but I’m 500-700 off every single day. Last night Amanda @beeacutie2 and I talked it out and she tried to help me come up with suggestions on how I can hit my goal. Eating peanut butter sandwiches with milk, a bowl of cereal or two, haha…sometimes life is simple right?
Joshua Medcalf is an amazing AMAZING mental training rethinking trainer…not his real title, just the way I think about him. While at Fitcation he came and spoke to us and he was so spot on. I realized I didn’t have that far to go. He led with a question about how so many of us don’t have our minds in the current situation. We were most likely thinking about what was going on back at home. I felt horrible because I WASN’T thinking about my kids back home. I barely even remembered to call my husband to tell him goodnight most of the nights I was there and I didn’t even talk to my kids. He assured me that it was a good thing. That I had my head in the game.
He also spoke to us about our relationships with those we interact with. If we go into a situation with a preconceived idea that it is going to be a certain way then we aren’t opening ourselves up to the greatness that it could be. He couldn’t be more right! The situation is always what we make of it. I’ve been trying to do that my whole adult life. We can choose to change our situation or we can wallow in it. I prefer to love what I am involved in even if the moment sucks. When I was being prepped for my back fusion I was making jokes with the staff about jumping out of planes and stuff afterwards. I had no intentions of that ever happening again, but my surgeon didn’t tell me no…That leaves the door wide open right?!
I am heading out again this week for another Blog event Brandcation. I’m excited to go and meet new women and see Lori @gutimom again! We have a ton of stuff to see and do and I am excited because these events are so out of my comfort zone. I am even renting a car for the first time ever and driving the hour to get there, which is totally freaking me out on the inside, even though I know I can do it. It looks like Tawnya @MommyGoggles and I will be on the same plane for a little bit and she may ride with me from the airport which would be awesome.
This last few weeks I decided to seize the day and I started my first Beachbody Challenge group. I stepped out of my comfort zone as a coach that was just using the discount to pay it forward. I also joined a group to learn how to step out even further and share the company that I am loving! They both start today. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time, but I know that all the women in my group are going to do awesome and so will I. I’m still kicking Insanity butt and I am really enjoying the way I feel afterwards and using Shakeology. The soreness and crampy pain are almost completely gone and I am loving that.
This week I will be speaking to 2-4 people a day about Beachbody. If you would like to be one of those people I would be so excited to share with you. I’ll be making sure that the women in my challenge group are sticking with their goals and have their heads in the game. I will be adding more calories into my day to help me let go of those stubborn pounds that think they are starving. I’ll finish packing to enjoy my trip to Tennessee for Blog Cabin Brandcation.
What are your top three goals for the week?
Have a great week!
