Here we are! Day one of November! Can you believe it? The past two days we’ve been talking about how we are going to rock these next two month and keep you looking and feeling awesome! If you haven’t had a chance to go back and read those , you should !
Busy schedules make it really easy to get lost in the holiday madness. You can easily lose track of those hard earned results you’ve been working for. To make things easy, I put together this handy Action Grid for you. It’s really simple to use, when you complete a task (i.e. drink water) cross it out on the corresponding day. At the end of the week add up all the items you crossed out and give yourself a score. For each task you should shoot for at least an 85%.
Easy peasy, right?! Look, eating healthy is hard enough with a busy schedule. With this easy little chart, all you have to do is cross off your goal for the day and move on. No journaling. No entering calories into an app. Just one simple little mark on a piece of paper. The best part, I know you are well on your way to master a new healthy habit when you can score at least a 85% on a goal for three weeks in a row.
A couple things to remember is that it’s our goal to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Exercising can be anything that get’s you moving and active. So if you don’t have time to get to the gym, but you have time to go for a 30 minute walk, go for it! The one thing I do want to see is at least three times a week you do strength training. This can be a workout at the gym, a group exercise class, a workout DVD at home, or 3o minutes of bodyweight exercises in the office.
