Hi Ladies!!

It’s DAY 22!  We’re almost a 1/3 of the way….  how has it been for you?  I’m sure it’s been challenging – and if so, you are not alone.  I want to clarify something right here and now…

This challenge is supposed to be HARD and uncomfortable – and this goes for anyone trying to make a change for a healthier life.  It’s days, weeks and months of working your discipline and flexing that muscle we know as will-power.  That can get tiring.  However, you must keep reminding yourself that it’s ONLY for 12 weeks…and that the reward awaiting you at the finish line is SO worth it.  REMEMBER that if this were easy, the end result would NOT be as satisfying.  It gets easier after 12 weeks.

This challenge has one main goal from our end…of course, we want you to look good, feel great and be proud of what you can accomplish, but the #1 reason for promoting this contest is to try to get you into the habit of eating well and exercising regularly so that this way of life becomes second-nature to you.

After a short adjustment period, you will discover that it gets easier until eventually, your new behaviors become deeply entrenched into your daily routine like grooves in a record.  Your new habits will become as much a part of your daily routine as taking a shower, brushing your teeth or going to work.  Your positive new habits will become a part of your lifestyle.  Just ask Coach Lorraine!  =)

BUT KNOW THAT THE ONLY WAY you’ll ever lose fat and keep it off permanently is to adopt new habits and maintain them for life!  Now that being said, life does it get easier once you get to that finish line.

MAINTAINING YOUR PHYSIQUE IS EASIER THAN CHANGING YOUR PHYSIQUE!   Your can be more flexible with your food choices, so don’t despair.  And speaking of food choices, you don’t have to eat turkey burgers every night.  You can replace your meals with foods that are equivalent in nutritional value.  For example, a 4 oz steak is your main source of protein during that meal.  It counts for about 25-30g of protein.  If you want to switch it up, try 4 oz of chicken breast, 4 oz of salmon, 5 oz of a white fish.  Maintain the same caloric value and you can switch up the foods.  Check the food list you were supplied with for more substitutions.
