4-week-shape-up

Hey y’all!  I hope your week is off to an awesome start!  SO…last month my  friend Megan, Founder of The Lyons’ Share Wellness, and I hosted a new service at my fitness studio called the September Shape Up!  Essentially, I was noticing that lots of the girls at my studio were super consistent with their workouts, however they weren’t getting the results they wanted…

Brit’s 2 Reasons For Lack of Results: 

  1. Lack of proper meal planning / meal prep
  2. Doing the wrong mix of workouts

SO, I designed a 4 week program to help them create weekly workout plans and weekly meals plans based on their specific goals and preferences.  Megan and I also provided recipes and workouts to put in their plans and track over the 4 week period.

We started the program with a kick off workshop and over 80 ladies signed up and showed up – WOW!

I led a seminar teaching them how to create an effective workout plan and Megan taught them how to meal plan and meal prep.  We also walked through an inspirational goal setting exercise and assigned weekly accountability metrics to track their progress.

4-week challenge: Sasha O or Prego?

Lakshmi’s Week 2 Update

Sasha Obama wore this adorable dress to her father’s speech at the DNC. I promptly purchased and wore it Wednesday for a work event. Not going to lie, I felt good in it. It accentuated my waist and was flattering (so I thought). I went to the work event, where the first person I spoke with had met with me a year ago. She said to me, “It’s great to see you again. And I see you have a baby bump.” Pow. All my confidence (I had even posted on Facebook about how great I felt in the dress) just disappeared like that. Unfortunately, there’s something about my body type that causes me to get mistaken for being pregnant all too often (I know, weird). I played the bigger person and instead of socking her in the face I said, “You’d be surprised how often I am mistaken for being pregnant. I must have a pregnant glow. When it does actually happen to me, I’ll be radioactive!” But I can joke all I want. It still really hurts. And when it hurts, I need some carbs. So Brit, I did eat carbs after 4 pm on Wednesday. But can you blame me? I was eating for two (PLEASE NOTE: THAT STATEMENT IS A JOKE).

Really tough to get the workouts in this week. I was in Boston Wed – Thursday AM. And am in Richmond Thursday AM to Friday night. Working a ton – so my options to workout were between the hours of midnight and 4 am. Sooo…I didn’t workout Thursday and Friday. I’ll get back into the groove on Saturday, I promise!

Here’s the dress I wore Wednesday. Isn’t it adorable? (the black and white one). No one mistook Sasha Obama for being prego.

Brit’s Advice for Lakshmi

  • Accentuate the positive – when you reflect on your week, ALWAYS think about everything you did WELL first.  If you start with your “slip ups,” it’s too easy to get discouraged and eventually quit your shape up efforts.
  • Don’t think in absolutes – you will never have a perfect day, so don’t beat yourself up if you sneak a cookie or miss a workout.  Just think about living a “balanced” life and schedule some extra workout time or a super lean meal to compensate for your “slip up”
