Welcome to my awesome 6 Week Fit Mommy Challenge! Select a workout to see your exercises for that day.
Mommy Tip: Think about how much stronger you feel now compared to the beginning of the challenge—use that to push yourself even further for the last week!
Mommy Tip: Come up with a post-challenge game plan. How are you going continue your Mommy Fit lifestyle after the Challenge is over?
Mommy Tip: Don't keep "trigger foods" in the house. As you progress through the program it will be harder to stay on track if you continue to see your favorite cheat foods in the house. Remove the temptation.
Mommy Tip: The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph!" Do one more push-up! That "umph" is what makes the difference!
Mommy Tip: Congratulations—you completed the Mommy Fit Challenge! Don't forget to record your final results. I can't wait to see your after picture!
Mommy Tip: The end is in sight! Push yourself HARD this week and reap the benefits of giving the challenge everything you've got.
Mommy Tip: If you are finding it difficult to find the time for your workouts, do it at the same time everyday so you know you cannot miss it. Maybe before the kids wake up?
Mommy Tip: By now you've probably found a few favorite meals from the meal plan—stay prepared and keep those foods on hand and ready to put together! Preparation is key when it comes to being on point with your nutrition!
Mommy Tip: Remember your "why." Why are you doing this challenge? Use your why to push you through to the end!
Mommy Tip: Have healthy grab and go options for snacks available so you don't ever "forget to eat" and then your glucose levels will stay even and you won't feel the need to binge.
Mommy Tip: When you don't feel motivated, practice discipline. Motivation comes and goes but discipline is 100% controlled by YOU.
Mommy Tip: Save your favorite recipes and meals from the plan to keep in your meal rotation after the challenge is done! Healthy doesn't have to be boring, right?!
Mommy Tip: Remember to drink your BCAA's during and after your workout to help replenish your electolytes and help your body build lean muscle. I love Idealfit BCAA's.
Mommy Tip: Focus on how strong you feel and your cardio endurance improving. Remember, how you look is not the only important factor. You want to FEEL healthy and fit.
Mommy Tip: Do you ever feel hungry? Don't forget you can eat as many green, fibrous veggies as you like--for flavor and fullness!
Mommy Tip: You're halfway! I'm so proud you have made it this far. Don't forget to check in with your fellow challengers and share with each other your challenges and successes. It can help you find some motivation to keep going and finish the program strong!
Mommy Tip: If you love a certain meal plan but are sick of eating it the same way try switching up how you make it! See how many ways you can make each meal a little different and share your food pics in the group!
Mommy Tip: Remember to STRETCH after every workout. It will help break up the lactic acid and help your muscles recover.
Mommy Tip: Find a workout buddy to do the challenge with you or just hold you accountable. Tell them your goals and check in with them as often as possible to help you stay motivated.
Mommy Tip: Protein is essential for a strong, lean mom body ;) That's why I have you drinking an IdealRaw protein shake with every post-workout meal. Keep both flavors on-hand for a quick, sweet, healthy treat!
Mommy Tip: As you move into Phase 2 of the workouts, push yourself just a little bit harder than you did the first two weeks! This will help your body to change more and more.
Mommy Tip: You won't always be motivated. Motivation comes and goes but if you have set a goal and you are determined to hit that goal, then you will succeed and no amount of excuses will get in your way.
Mommy Tip: Be sure not to "forget to eat." In this program your body needs the fuel to have great workouts and to feel strong and healthy! (Especially for you still nursing mamas!)
Mommy Tip: Do you have a favorite pair of jeans or a favorite outfit you feel amazing in? Use those as a motivator and try it on throughout the program to keep your eye on the prize.
Mommy Tip: Make sure you're getting between 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Try setting an alarm to remind you when you need to go to bed.
Mommy Tip: When lifting try to hit failure in every set so you can really change your body. Remember, if you aren't challenging yourself, you aren't going to change.
Mommy Tip: Try not to watch the scale and focus more on how you look and how you feel in your clothes.
Mommy Tip: Make sure to get fiber rich foods that help you feel full longer
Mommy Tip: Don't stress if you find yourself up a couple pounds after a cheat meal. The extra carbs and sodium will make you hold a little extra water and it will flush out a day or two of getting back on your normal meal plan and water intake.
Mommy Tip: Maybe week one didn't go as well as you hoped for. But, NOW is your chance to do better this week! You can do it! Learn from your mistakes and do better this week!
Mommy Tip: Pamper those sore muscles by rolling them out, stretching, and taking an epsom salt bath. This will help you recover quicker and keep you going hard in your workouts.
Mommy Tip: Simple carbs are best to eat right after your workout, so try to eat your fruits after your workout.
Mommy Tip: Make sure you are eating nutrient dense foods that have a lot of volume. For example, you can eat twice as much cauliflower rice as you can regular rice and stay full. This will help you stay full longer.
Mommy Tip: Start slow. You don't have to be perfect your first try. Recognize when you are doing well and stay positive with yourself. Everyone has to start somewhere. Take it a day at a time.
Mommy Tip: Drink plenty of water. If you stay hydrated you will have more energy and be able to tackle those cravings. Shoot for at least 64oz of water a day. Bring a water jug with you to help you track.
Mommy Tip: I find it helpful to stick to just 1 or 2 meal plans for the week BUT again if you like variation go ahead and change it up.
