|22 Minute Hard Corps Workouts|
Happy Tuesday!! It’s been a while since I’ve given an update on my 22 Minute Hard Corps journey. I’m still at it and actually, I just started Week 7 yesterday!! Due to some sicknesses I had to have a redo of Week 6. Believe it or not, I am still LOVING the program!! It kinda has the best of both worlds. It’s got a GREAT nutrition plan using the color coded portion control containers, and then it has these awesome short, yet effective, workouts that will leave you feeling good, healthy, and energized to take on the day! Seriously, this program is PERFECT for moms and for those who have a super busy schedule.

So, let me give you a nutrition update. Truth be told, I was struggling a bit. I’ve been working late hours (aka not getting enough sleep), munching a bit more in the evenings, and skipping some snacks here and there. Can you relate? Sometimes we get so busy with our day that we forget to eat, right? Then, when you DO eat you feel like you could eat your entire house LOL. So, with the combination of all of those factors, my energy was lacking a bit and I even gained a couple of pounds. SO, I had to recommit myself to getting on track and focusing on my health. You know what? It happens. We go in and out of those cycles. We really can’t be perfect 100% of the time. Something that I tell my challengers is that what matters is that we recognize our faults/struggles, we pick ourselves back up, and we get ourselves back on track. So, with Week 7 of Hard Corps, I have my meal plan in place, I have food prepped in my fridge, and I am CRUSHING it! I honestly think that a lot has to do with my accountability groups. No, I’m not tooting my own horn LOL. What I am saying is that when I check in with my groups and see their dedication, sweaty selfies, and read about how they passed up a treat at work, it gives ME motivation too!!
I shared this quote the other day and got a GREAT response from it. It may be a bit harsh, but it is the truth. If you haven’t reached whatever goal(s) YOU have, what’s holding you back? Is it an excuse?
So what exactly am I doing to get myself back on track? For starters, I am setting a bed time! I’ve been running on low steam lately due to a variety of reasons and that needs to stop. Getting enough sleep is just as important to staying healthy as exercising and eating healthy. Lack of sleep is even a contributor to weight gain!
I am also focusing more on my nutrition and MAKING THE TIME to prep my foods. Check out some of the meals I’ve been eating below! Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring! In fact, it’s far from that! It’s rejuvenating, fulfilling, and it leaves you feeling much more energized!
Some of my favorite meals I’m been having include Shakeology, salads with veggies, strawberries with balsamic, chicken stir fry, and veggie omelets with whole grain/sprouted toast! Having healthy foods in your fridge and pantry will limit you to ONLY EATING HEALTHY FOODS!!

Here is a glimpse at a couple of meal plans I’ve been following as well! Life always throws obstacles at us so yes, there are times when I have to switch a meal or snack here and there. There are times when we decide last minute to go out to eat, and there are times when I just don’t feel like eating what I have planned. BUT, I HAVE A PLAN and if I find myself hitting those obstacles, I mind my portions and do the best that I can! Simple as that!
