Saturday, I purged my closet. Since I tend to wear the same 20 items over and over again, I had several things with holes and stains. (My fashion inspiration: 10-year-old boys.) Also, since I tend to wear the same 20 items over and over again, I had several things I haven’t touched in a year.
So, I pulled the holey/stained garments out of my closet and threw them away. Easy-peasy.
Then I pulled the untouched garments out of my closet, plopped them on the bed, and proceeded to try every one of them on. Ugh. I hate this. In order to earn a spot back in my closet, the garment had to pass the “Do-I-Feel-Like-A-Million-Bucks-In-This?” test.
I got rid of six shopping bags full of clothes.
I learned two things Saturday:
1. I need to go shopping. Mostly, I need clothes without holes and stains.
2. I can’t button my favorite summer pants, and I don’t want to get rid of them, because I JUST BOUGHT THEM LAST SUMMER!
This is where you come in. We have a little over two months before June 1st, right? I’m kicking it into high gear to get fit by then, BECAUSE I WANT TO WEAR MY PANTS, and I want you to join me.
Do you need accountability?
Do you lack the time to do a lengthy workout?
Do you like free stuff?
Do you want to fit into your pants by June 1st?
Then, this, my friends, is your day.
Here’s what I want you to do:
FIRST: Commit to exercise and healthy eating. There are all kinds of things you can do, but I encourage you to do something YOU WILL ENJOY. Otherwise, you won’t stick with it.
I just ordered Tony Horton’s new workout 22 MINUTE HARD CORPS. It is an 8-week DVD-driven, home workout, from the creator of P90X. It is a boot-camp-style routine, it’s only 22 minutes a day (thus, the name) and it comes with a nutrition guide. Here is a video, so you can check it out.
If you are short on time, like simple, uncomplicated moves, and need daily structure, this is for you. You can order it here, from me, if you’d like. Just go to my Beachbody page and hit “Shop Team Beachbody” on the left.
The basic DVD package is only $39.90. (affiliate link–I receive a small commission if you order it from me.) If you order it soon, you get free shipping and you’ll have it in 3-6 business days.
If boot camp is not your thing, there are many Beachbody workouts to choose from. Poke around the site a little and see if something catches your eye. I can help you choose the best one, if you want my help.
But don’t feel like you have to buy something! Just exercise most days for the next two months. Walk, run, blow the dust off your elliptical, jump on a trampoline, go to the gym, go to the zumba class. I don’t care what you do. I just want you to commit to something.
SECOND: Join me in my private Facebook Accountability Group called Fit By Summer. We will begin on Friday, April 1st and go until Friday, May 27th. There, I will offer you FREE accountability, FREE fitness tips and motivation, and I may even throw in a healthy recipe or two. Just let me know in the comments, via email, or on Facebook (if we are already friends there) that you’d like to join, and I’ll add you!
THIRD: Be on the lookout for my free E-book! I’ve been working on a free resource for you called, “25 Little Things You Can Do To Reach Your Fitness Goals.” It should be ready in a few days. You can download this whether you join the Facebook group or not. It’s my gift to you, because I want you, also, to be able to wear your favorite pants this summer.
