When you have established a time that works for you every day (or as many days as possible), write your workouts in your diary as you would a meeting or appointment and stick to them like glue!
2. Meal Prep
Remember…you cannot out train a bad diet. Give your body the best possible chance by fueling yourself with nourishing, healthy foods over the weekend to give yourself the energy boost we all know we will need when that alarm clock goes off on Monday morning! Where possible think about what you will eat during the week and take some time on Sunday to prepare. Good Housekeeping https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/food-recipes/a28377603/how-to-meal-prep/ have got some brilliant ideas on how to simplify your cooking and take some time for you, saving yourself a lot of time and money all while eating healthy and working towards your goals.
Fuel Your Body
One mistake people so often make when taking on a new challenge is to go all guns blazing on a strict, and let’s face it, normally impossible diet. Making sure you have enough fuel to perform optimally will be the key to your success. Plan your meals around your workouts. If you like to eat before your morning workout give yourself enough time to eat your breakfast and digest. If you cannot stomach the thought of breakfast, grab yourself a banana or a healthy alternative to give keep you feeling energized throughout your workout. Be sure to refuel as soon as possible with a protein based meal to allow growth and repair of the muscles. Through this 4 week challenge really focus on avoiding refined sugar and lots of alcohol. While boredom may cause us to reach for the wine bottle, you’ll be amazed at just how great you feel when you shift your focus to nourishing your body with goodness.
Don’t Do It Alone
We all need an accountability buddy. Or better yet A LOT of accountability buddies. Be sure to join our niix FB community group for daily support, advice and motivation. But also share this with your family and friends and take on this challenge together! Don’t be shy, we love to see our wonderful niixers posting their workouts and selfies on social media, use the hashtag #niixLOCKDOWN to be featured on our page!
Trust The Process
Like all challenges, this series has been designed to push you out of your comfort zone. It will feel difficult at first, but dig in and know that you are doing this to be the very best version of you. You will be amazed when you stick to it just how much easier and stronger you will become. When it gets tough and you want to throw in the towel, take a break but NEVER quit. Go at your own pace, dig in and just keep showing up, I promise you it will be worth it!
Now you are ready to get started – so get excited! I cannot wait to grab the next 4 weeks by the horns and feel fitter, stronger, healthier and more confident TOGETHER!
