Happy Friday friends! How's your week been? Mine has been really good! Tomorrow marks the end of my first full week at my new job and so far, I really like it! It's a lot busier than my other job, but I have a beautiful office and I really like the work I'll be doing... get this, I get to blog! Woohoo! I'm combining this week's Fashion Friday feature with preparations for Week 3 of Get Motivated March! How adorable is this Protein Shake tank? I love it! I also love these Nike shorts and if it ever gets warmer, I plan to get a few pairs!
Alright, so you haven't downloaded the Get Motivated calendar - it's never too late!
And if you haven't done the first couple of challenges, jump right in!
March 16: Log Everyday!
I'm really excited to try to do this the entire week because I recently logged back into MyFitnessPal and I saw that theres been some nice updates! (Here's 10 Tips for Making the Most of MyFitnessPal!)
March 17: Cut Out Processed Foods!
This means fast food and packages lunches! Get creative and pack your lunch! Make a breakfast casserole or try overnight oats - I don't know where these have been all my life! It's been a delicious and filling way to start the day!
March 18: Drink Water First
I'm really trying to get in this habit but it's hard! I always always go for the coffee first, then water, but there are so many benefits to drinking water first thing!
March 19: Plan an Active Date
I'm actually already planning an active date with my girlfriends! We're supposed to be going to DivaFit for a pole dancing class! That should be fun, active and hilarious!
March 20: Make a Healthy Swap
I have a healthy swap posted planned for next week! I've realized there are some many healthy alternatives to the foods I once loved, and once I introduced those healthy swaps in my diet I never looked back! Especially with protein pancakes and spaghetti squash! I don't miss the other stuff!
March 21: Take the Stairs
I'm on the seventh floor in my building and a walk up the stairs would be a great midday workout! Looking forward to this!
March 22: Pass on the Booze!
It's pretty well-known that alcohol can sabotage diet efforts! Try passing on the booze this weekend, at least for one day!
I'm going to try to be better next week checking in with you guys on these challenges (as I do them) via social media! This week has just been crazy with my new job and I haven't had time to get on Instagram! I miss it, though!
Also, who's pumped for 14.3 of the Open? I am! Box jumps and deadlifts! I can do those so I'm stoked! Look for a full recap of the event Monday and to those of you competing - GOOD LUCK!
Thanks for reading guys! Have a great weekend!
