How To Get Started Right With Transform:20! Shaun T 20 Minute Workout!
There are some definite tools that help with success when you set out to complete a program. Here are some things I’ve learned that help set our group up to finish strong. We always start with a strong WHY. A reason that pulls us toward our goals. Then we take before stats simply meaning pictures, measurements and weight. The Transform:20 journal has a commitment that you sign for your goals. It also has an amazing daily tracker that lets you track all the healthy habits like water, sleep, container count, foods and joy or mood. There is also a place to journal about how you’ve overcome challenges and setbacks for that particular day.
I have found that it helps to decide when you will be done eating for the day. “Dinner and done” is a rule I learned from doing the 2B Mindset. 2B Mindset is a program designed to teach you about nutrition, reading labels, and overcoming emotional eating. I highly recommend it if you’re like me and love all the food. For a treat that won’t bust my waistline, these bars are my go to. Low in sugar and high in protein but without any of the artificial crap they put in other brands. Both flavors are yummy but these are my favorite: BEACH BARS

It is extremely helpful to learn which healthy foods I like and stick to having them weekly. It does take some trial and error to find foods the entire family enjoys. I make them eat broccoli but other than that we’ve found a good rhythm with the nutrient dense foods. Basically tacos once or twice a week and I will make their favorite vegetables with whatever meat we are having. We all drink Shakeology daily, too!
Another trick I realized I had done today was that I filled in my food on the tracker in the morning. I organized it all and knew what I was making at dinner. Mason jar salads are a fantastic way to prep four tasty lunches in advance. You may even get them to last five days but I always prep for just four days. These Tazo dessert teas are such a craving saver for me. Since I’ve decided to give up wine for this challenge, I like something fun to drink. The Glazed Lemon Loaf is my top favorite found here: https://amzn.to/2DabDPH I also like to sip this Natural Vitality Natural Calm Diet Supplement before bed as a calming and stress combating drink: https://amzn.to/2TQ0xEV
Writing out your perfect daily schedule and trying to stick to it as closely as possible is another sure way to make sure you can align your activities with your goals. When you plan well, things flow much easier and allow for that buffer we need if our day doesn’t go as planned. That’s why I am choosing to wake-up early to get my fitness in.
When we, as women, complete the program and do the things we promised ourselves we would do it builds us up. We fight off the self-sabotage and build esteem, confidence and success. It’s always easier to do the things that are convenient but showing up when it’s not is powerful for our results. As I mention in the video, the weight and inches seem to fall off the last 7-10 days of the program but a lot of women give up before that happens. Our mantra at Team Beachbody is decide, commit and succeed and that’s what I’ve seen in my life and hundreds of my friends lives. Now is your time!!!

Alcohol: I have no problem with alcohol, I love wine, but it can really hinder weight loss and our overall transformations. In this blog, Tips to Stop Drinking Alcohol, I give some points on what to do to give the alcohol a break.
