Surviving Summer in a Swimsuit

in , , , , by Holly Thompson, July 28, 2019

Swimsuits don't lie! They show every ripple, curve, bubble... all of it. And while we love this season of freedom from our work at school, for a lot of us it's not really a "break." Our own kids are home, too. In my case, the husband (also a teacher) is off and everyday for 2.5 months feels like the weekend.  I like to lounge at home with lazy mornings of cartoons (while I write and serve my bootcamp challengers) and coffee, and he likes to take adventures to the rec center pool every day. It's exhausting and I find myself craving the routine that "Monday morning" brings. But we are also finding a balance that feels a bit easier as our kids get older. This is the first summer without diapers so praise hands!

How to Crush Consistency and See Results Faster

by Holly Thompson, July 18, 2019
"You never rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems" - James Clear, Atomic Habits.

So let's either work on the systems BEFORE we find a program or choose a program we think we can create systems around.

When I break it down, the most universal principle that I conquered in achieving my weight loss results was consistency. This is also the thing that people tell me they struggle the most with - so I thought we would break this one down.
YAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I love love love this program soooo much! Join me as it launches this month!

I can't say enough good things about this! But here's a little video with the details that explains WAY better than I can!   Morning Meltdown 100 What is it?

What is Morning Meltdown 100™?

Morning Meltdown 100 is a high-energy, fast-paced, and fierce fitness program designed to be completed first thing in the morning. Commit to 100 workouts, and Beachbody® Super Trainer Jericho McMatthews will get you fired up to build strength and melt away fat. These are high-intensity cardio and resistance-training workouts that will blast your total body, while a live DJ keeps the energy high so you’re motivated to burn off the pounds. The goal: complete 100 workouts and unlock the best version of you.

What makes it unique?

This is the first Beachbody program designed to be done in the morning. When you wake up and commit to giving Jericho everything you’ve got, you’ll go into the rest of your day energized, refreshed, and ready to take on the world. This is an intermediate-to-advanced program that features 100 workouts broken into 5 phases of 20 workouts each. In each phase, you’ll do a 10-workout cycle of 20- to 30-minute workouts, and then heat up the intensity and repeat those 10 with added 100-second challenges—all designed to give you a solid rotation of cardio, resistance, and mind/body training. However you want to complete your 100 workouts is really up to you. Jericho has included recovery days along the way to give your body some TLC, so if you miss a day or want to plan for a day off you can stack that day’s workout with the next. The program outlines exactly how to do that. The most important takeaway is that you make a commitment to every single morning workout. Morning Meltdown 100 also features music mixed live by DJ Jesse Blake, who ramps the beats to speed up moves, adding intensity and excitement. It’ll make your workout feel like a party and give you the motivation you need to keep going. At the core of the program is the Be 100 Book, a beautifully designed, interactive, daily motivational tool and tracker that will help you unlock your potential and guide your commitment as you melt off the fat. START EVERY DAY STRONG.

Drop the mic and order this book right now!!!!!!

If you are struggling with being consistent with ANYTHING AT ALL! (Losing weight, saving money, cleaning, exercising, being more productive) YOU NEED THIS!!!!

James Clear just explains habits in the most practical and simple way possible - but with so much information that's soooooo interesting! A lot of it has sffirmed my own healthy habits and given me a bteer language to help others with them in my coaching and teaching.

I loved the Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, but this one builds on it, add the focus on TINY habits over time, and also addressed the emotional part of changing!

This will be a go to and first recommendation for ALL of my challengers and coaches on my team. Simple, Powerful, and Easy to listen to/read!

And the teacher in me LOVES the bulleted summaries at the end of each chapter! YES!

This is my favorite planner/journal for my Rise and Recharge Ritual.

It's different than a "calendar" per se that we think of when remembering doctors appointments or play dates - for that, I use google calendar and share it with my husband so we know our commitments.

It's also different than a plain journal that I would always start and never finish more than a page or 2. I don't really like writing like that - but I love just the little bit of reflection this prompts!!

This is for day to day wrapping your head around your tasks for the day.  Sort of like a calendar, planner, journal, to-do list, and gratitude journal all in one.  There is space to set goals and plan ahead, look simply at where you are spending time, and writing down important reminders.

The process that they teach is really easy and the books are inexpensive, portable, and sturdy. I use this method and book daily and I encourage you to try it too!

I believe in it so much, that I applied to be an ambassador for them! So here's a special code to get a discount on your first book!
