Summer Prep Challenge: Week Two – Nutrition
Welcome to week TWO of the 6 Week Summer Prep Challenge!
Each week we will build upon and add to the habits we started the prior week.
Last week we started moving our bodies and working our arm muscles 3-4 times per week. Click here for recap of the Week One Challenge.
How have you been doing with those habits?
There was a great discussion about exercise over in my free private #justgetdressed Facebook group. I encourage you to go check out this thread and feel to chime in, get support, find kindred spirits, and share experiences.
This week we're focusing on NUTRITION and fueling our bodies in a way that supports our health and beauty goals.
As I've said before, we are NOT talking about crash diets, or really any diets at all.
Instead, the goal is to implement THREE simple (not easy, but simple) daily habits that are sustainable and reasonable, and that when done consistently, will lead to a healthier (and more beautiful) lifestyle.
Are you in??
You: "Yes Beth, I'm totally in."
- Pay Attention to Portions: Learn portion sizes. It's shocking what is often served vs. what a reasonable portion really is.
- Mindful Eating: Don't do other things while eating, and no willy nilly snacking. (This is a biggee for me, and I'm committed to working on it, every day, all day.)
- Maintain healthy eating habits on the Weekends: Don't go off the rails on weekends or vacations. (Another doozy for me. I'm not saying to not have fun - God knows I would never say that - but weekends and holidays can wreak havoc on our otherwise healthy habits, so plan ahead - and remember, everything in moderation;)
Later this week (hopefully Friday at 1:30pm EST), I'll be going LIVE on Facebook with close friend, new neighbor, and nutrition coach to the stars;) - Robin Curley! Make sure you like the page and get notificatons when I go live. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/bstyledpersonalstyling/

But, in the meantime, let's focus on our THREE habits that we will implement RIGHT NOW.
Not tomorrow, not later today --- but right now. So put down the bag of popcorn (I see you;) and let's do this.
And don't forget to keep up your 30 minutes of movement and arm exercises 3-4 times per week, right?
Yes, you still need to do that. Click here for a refresher on those habits.
Also.... don't forget to #justgetdressed. Why?
Because it's MUCH more likely for us to eat nutritiously and mindfully when we feel good in what we're wearing. It's a proven fact. Trust me. 😉
