So, tomorrow (Wednesday) I wanted to do a post about getting ready to start the super shape-up. However, as I just realized I'm volunteering for my daughter's field trip all day tomorrow, I thought I'd better do that post tonight! I want you to have enough time to prepare...because we start this baby on Thursday, May 26th!!! I'm so excited cuz I know we're gonna enjoy some *fantastic* results!
So, let's talk food!
What are you going to eat this week? I would like to encourage you to plan out your meals and make a grocery list so that you're totally ready to go when Thursday morning comes.
As an example, I'll share my week's menu (these are all the dishes I can make this week with the groceries I have on hand). . .
Green Smoothie Bliss

huge salads with one of the miso dressings from Radiance 4 Life

Gearing up for Exercise on the 2-Week Super Shape-Up!
What do you want your exercise program to look like this week? And yes, let's think in one-week increments for now. I encourage you to get really detailed and write out exactly what you want to do.
Here's mine (I might do more, but I want to keep my basic foundation doable - I want a gold star!):
Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday: 60 minutes of cardio + 10 "mini-exercises"
Friday, Monday, and Wednesday: Strength training + 30 minutes of cardio + 10 "mini-exercises"
Sunday: Rest! :-)
I'd also like to suggest that you take a little time and visualize the following today:
1. See yourself exercising as you'd ideally like to during these 2 weeks.
2. See yourself eating and preparing food in an ideal way, as your highest self would.
3. See yourself at the end of the 2 weeks enjoying optimal results!
So, I hope you all have fun preparing and I will check in on Thursday to compare notes and see how everyone is doing. Can't wait!! xoxo
