Fit Tip Tuesday - Small Steps

This is a lodge up in the mountains of Idaho that I went to a lot while I was growing up.  The slide is AMAZING - especially for a kid!  But the stairs?  Not so much. :) haha
They used to be just cinder blocks wedged into the mountain when I was little, but since then they have been redone.
When you get to the bottom of the slide, and see how far you have to climb - it's really intimidating!  The very best thing to do is just keep your focus on the step in front of you & keep climbing.  Pretty soon you are at the top & it didn't seem that bad at all.  (Well, until you want to go down the slide again.)
That's how weight loss is.  If you look at how much you have to lose, it might seem overwhelming & you want to give up after the first couple days or even weeks.  But if you focus on taking small steps - one day at a time, one week at a time - pretty soon a couple months have gone by (along with a few pounds) and you look up and see a whole new you!
Have you ever heard this saying?:
If we have something in front of us that seems so big and we think there is no way we can accomplish it, just breaking it down into smaller pieces makes it much more achievable.

Every little thing we do each day has an impact on our lives and our bodies.  So when we are tired and would rather sleep in, think about how it will affect our bodies and our mental state.  It's really hard sometimes!  Yeah, 1 day is no big deal, you are right.  But if we do that 2 days a week for 12 weeks, that is 24 days we missed a workout - which is almost an entire month we are set back!  Plus, who knows how many cheat meals that is too!  So the small choices you make do add up over time!

Fuel Your Body Friday - Dijon Vinaigrette

This is a really light, yummy dressing that takes about 2 seconds to mix up.  Oh and it's pretty healthy, too. 

1 TBS Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 tsp Olive Oil
1 TBS Dijon Mustard
1 TBS fat-free mayo
2 TBS water

Mix all together until smooth.  Drizzle over salad.  Enjoy!

Focus T25 Review

My T25 just came! I am so excited to start this program on Monday!

I haven't watched any of the dvds yet, just looked at the schedule and the eating guide.

There is a 5 day fast track plan which looks pretty do-able. Some of the recipes look really good, but you can always swap things out or do your own food. I like to stick as close as I can to the calories and macro ratios of each meal.

You do one workout a day Monday - Thursday and then Friday is Double Day Friday, where you do 2 workouts! The thing I thought was the funniest was that there are 2 little boxes on the workout calendar that you check off, one says "nailed it" and the other says "barely made it". Haha - should I be worried?? emoticon

Then you have what Shaun T. calls STATurday - where you take your measurements and weigh yourself every week, so you can see your hard work pay off.

You also do a variation of the same 5 workouts for 5 weeks called the Alpha Cycle, and then you start 5 new workouts for the Beta Cycle which is the next 5 weeks. You can add on to this by purchasing the Gamma Cycle which is sold separately.

I know that Tania is the modifier in all the dvds, so this workout is great for ALL fitness levels, unlike Insanity which was - well - INSANE! haha emoticon

Well, I hope that helps some of you to decide if you want to order this or not. I love that there is not much, if any equipment needed (The program comes with tubing.) and you can do it in a relatively small space, like Insanity. Not to mention the fact that it's ONLY 25 MINUTES A DAY!! What's not to love? emoticon
