We’re just over halfway through the month and while there is some really great stuff going on….there’s also some slacking in key areas.

Beach Body May is all about eating as clean as possible AND working out…and it’s hard to stay on top of both. But one without the other means our goals are still out of reach.

Are you exercising, but sabotaging yourself when it comes to food choices?

Are you doing great with your eating habits, but missing out on the added benefits of strength and cardio?

What if you really made a commitment to hunker down and stick to both plans for the next two weeks? Where could you be by the end of the month?

It’s Wednesday, (weigh in day) and we are halfway through May. Plenty of time to recommit to utilizing the most effective anti-depressant (exercise) and avoiding the food pitfalls. Let’s think back on why we committed to eating healthy and exercising and get back on track for May!

Can you recommit and find it within yourself to finish the month strong? Comment below…tell us how you are falling short and what changes you will make to finish the month STRONG! You can weigh in…or you can look in the mirror and be honest with yourself…sometimes the best self check has nothing to do with the scale…

Day 17 exercises:

  • 100 Jumping Jacks
  • 100 Crunches
  • 50 Leg Raises (per leg)
  • :60 Plank

Bonus: Recommit to 21 Day No Junk Food Challenge or to your 30 Day Exercise Challenge!

Extra Credit: Mileage Check – Halfway through the month I like to check in with my mileage to see where I’m at and what I need to do to reach my monthly goals. It can be walking, running, biking, steps…whatever you do to ensure you are being active. We all have our own ways to track our activity levels. How are you doing this month?

Have you checked in with your buddy? The buddy system has been working well. Have you heard from your buddy lately? Maybe they need some motivation….I would love to hear from my May buddies! Elisha, Ellen, Angie…how are you ladies doing? It’s been a little quiet and I would love to see you all recommit! This “check in” is not designed to cause anxiety…just to make sure you know we are thinking of you and want you to be your best! xoxoxo

Back on Track Wednesday….let’s recommit and focus in on reaching our goals!

Before we sign off and get to work today….I wanted to remind you about stretching. We haven’t talked as much about it this month, but it’s still so important to stretch out all your runner sore muscles to keep them healthy and ready to carry you through lots of miles. If you’ve been neglecting this important aspect of training….make a conscious effort to get your stretching in!
