Today was Super Saturday! Super Saturday is a quarterly Beachbody event for coaches (guests can come too though!) where it's part business (learning about what is coming down the pike for the company, personal development) and part fitness (because you can't put a bunch of Beachbody coaches together and NOT workout). I actually never really went before this year to one but now that I have, I will NEVER miss one unless I really have to miss one. It's a great opportunity to meet other local coaches and just to be surrounded by ridiculous positivity. Before I go into what I really got out of it...a few pics!
Today was also good for me to put a fire under my ass again. In the door prize contest for most weight loss in the room....well I was #2. Only one person beat me and he lost an amazing 125 lbs. Well done sir! Now even if I reach my goal by June 28th (next Super Saturday) I still wouldn't beat that guy because my goal is less than 125. BUT it reminded me how far I have come. How much work I have done so far and how I should really stop being so blah about that part of this journey. I'm always looking forward and looking at what's left. But what is important and what has made me who I am today is what I have already accomplished. If there is nothing else I took from today...it's that I need to keep in mind my success so far and never forget that.
It was also good because...well I have been slacking with workouts. Partially diet related but fully not excusable. I was tired from my eating and I let that dictate my mornings. So I didn't exercise like I should and I was too busy around lunch at work to squeeze in a workout so I let that be an excuse. Too many excuses = too many missed workouts. Then today we did 21 Day Fix Plyo Fix.
All those missed workouts and poor diet choices were like HI KIM I'M HERE!!!!! I have only done that workout once before and I knew it was hard but whoa it was way harder today. Okay. I'm listening. I already was but I'm REALLY listening now.
Even before today I had decided that today was going to be the first day of being back on a plant based diet. I went to the grocery store last night and stocked up on some delicious produce. I went to Super Saturday with strawberry Shakeology blended up with cherries and a banana (the best thing ever) and a big container of fruit - strawberries, apple, banana. I had a big salad and a pear for lunch and broccoli and chickpeas for dinner. All very very clean and delicious and PERFECT. I haven't felt this great in a while between all the plants and the exercise. And after Super Saturday...well I am beyond motivated to keep going. I'm going spend the next 2ish weeks eating pretty clean and working out regularly on schedule. Then I'm going to reset and really kick myself in to high gear. Post-reset - I'm probably going to do insanity or insanity/p90x hybrid until I head off to Vegas for Beachbody Summit. Big plans but I am ready to bring my best self to Vegas and the next BB event. I want to submit that best self for the BB challenge in June and I want to be able to stand longer at June Super Saturday as they count down the weight loss.
Focus. Drive....let's DO THIS!
