The Final Countdown
We have just days left in our smoothie challenge **single tear**. Who’s meeting me for coffee next week **shrieks of joy**!? I had a blast with this challenge and I hope you did too. I’d love to hear a recap from any involved parties.
Who’s with me on the coffee next week?
The next challenge is also two-fold
Having a slight touch of OCD, I’ve already been brainstorming what to do next. As you may know, I write meal plans for StrongCalmSexy members each month. I try to keep it new and fresh and I test all of the recipes (obviously). My recipes are either mine or modified from an inspired recipe to make it fit within the parameters of what I think is best. So, what I’ve decided to do should be a productive challenge. Join me if you’d like.
Over the years I’ve accumulated a tower of cookbooks that basically act as cabinet anchors. I’ve used very few of them very few times with the exception of a few of them (whew…that’s a lot of fews).
I intend to help these cookbooks fulfill there destiny. I’m going to tackle them one at a time, making 5 recipes from each cookbook before deciding whether I want to keep it or pass it on for someone else to enjoy.
(This is my most used cookbook. I lived by it for about a year)
I’m hoping this will encourage me to try some new recipes and become a better chef. I’m also doing this to encourage my kids to be a little more open minded about nutrition.
(Aaaaand, this comes from our Harry Potter cookbook. That should be an interesting week)
So, if you want to join me for this half of the challenge, then dust off your old cookbooks and try some new recipes with me. I’ll be posting about my favorites and how to clean them up (if necessary). If you’re following the Strong Calm Sexy meal plan, use this challenge as a way to share your cooking and prepping experiences (of the plan) with the rest of us. If you have a favorite recipe from the plan, feel free to share that on our social media pages too!
Part 2 (this is where we move)
The next thing I want to challenge you with, is a fitness challenge. In September we really loaded up on nutrients. For the month of October, let’s mooooooove! I’m challenging all who will accept to do an 8 Minute Meltdown a day (5 days per week). You can add the 8 Minute Meltdown to what you already do so that it’s “extra” activity. You can decide the time of day that works best for you and you can pick the 2 rest days per week. The goal is to find a way to make time for 8 minutes of fitness where you thought you had none.
You can find the workouts on the home page of StrongCalmSexy.com under the 8 Minute Meltdown tab. I will also be adding new ones and sharing the one’s we already have, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding them!
If you’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr you can share the 8 Minute Meltdown that you completed and your feedback as to how you feel. You can also participate privately. There is no pressure to post, it’s just makes it more fun for me ;)!
