Motivation Monday

Welcome to 2016 Friends!

photo (1)I am excited to kick off the new year with a new vision for Livingleen; which starts with 16 weeks of diet & exercise regimes every Monday. Both Phil and I are committed to sticking with the posted weekly routine as best as possible…making adjustments, of course, when life calls for it.photo (2)This week we’re hitting the ground running with 2 days of lifting, 3 days of cardio, and yoga (at least a few minutes) every day. We’re partnering our workouts with a lower sugar, high protein diet to fuel our fire and have us feeling fierce in no time. We’ve definitely been indulging in holiday decadence and feeling the extra pounds, so this shift is much needed.photo (3)In an effort to stay motivated and keep things interesting, we’re taking this a step further and turning the next 16 weeks into a bit of a competition…best results gets a prize! We’re going to choose a certain amount of money and the winner gets to decide what we do with it…it should be fun! Below is the diet and exercise we’re sticking to this week…let’s get to it!
