Happy 4th of July!
No matter how you celebrate today, take some time to relax, enjoy time with family and friends, and be sure to check out all of the new 4th of July recipe and cookout tips here, to help you keep it healthier, while still having fun!
Now on to your Weekly Burn…
Get in 20-30 minutes of cardio and the Stronger Core Challenge. If you are in a real hurry, then get in this quick 4th of July HIIT routine!
Challenge: Have fun today, but still try to keep it clean and enjoy healthy foods. Use inspiration from your nutrition plan (for example, we made the black bean burgers and cupcakes and brought them to the cookouts this weekend), and from the 4th inspired recipes here.
Challenge: Set a new goal for yourself. If it has been a while since you last revisited your goals, then take a few minutes to re-write or add new goals. And maybe even cross off some goals that you have accomplished! This may seem tedious, but putting something down on paper and being able to visualize it, can make it that much more real and help you to be successful.
Challenge: Take a sweaty post-workout selfie and tag us at @fairburnitoff and use #fairburninfriday! Just like writing your goals down, taking photos may seem silly or pointless, but it helps you to stay motivated and accountable, and you just never know who else may be looking to you for inspiration on their own health journey. It always amazes us when we receive a message from someone saying how a particular photo that we thought was silly (for example – us just eating out) helped to motivate them and realize that they could still live their life without feeling deprived, but feeling great!
Challenge: Relax and enjoy a drink from your nutrition plan or go out on a date.
Active rest and Stronger Core Challenge. Be sure to set aside some time today to meal prep for the week ahead. Remember, you can always refer back to your nutrition plan for meal prep guidance, grocery lists, and lists of items of what and how to prepare in advance.
Have a burnin’ week!
