Wednesday Workout: Getting back on track (still trying) with Mr. Shut Up and Train

**update: here is the link to sign up for the challenge: http://totalfitgroup.com/challenge/

I feel like every Wednesday I say "I'm really seriously trying to get back on track!" and then have ten million reasons that I can't eat clean and can't find time to exercise. I signed up for the Mr. Shut Up and Train 21 Day Fall Challenge weeks ago and when it started on Sunday I was like "oh I just got back from my bachelorette party I can't exercise" and then have had some excuse every day since, so imagine my shock when I opened up my email this morning to this little ditty from Mr. Shut Up himself:

Excuse me, sir, have you tapped my phone? Are you reading my mind?

So despite the fact that I have a friend's birthday happy hour to attend, I'm making it work today. The rules are simple:

Simple to understand. Not so simple to follow. No booze for 21 days?!?!?

So, food rules above + doing the damn thing (aka the videos he emails every morning) = results. I've done his challenges before and been really pleased with the results, in fact the first time I did a challenge with him my only goal was to "try" this whole clean eating thing (he's who got me hooked!) and to be able to do 10 pushups without having to go on my knees. By the end I could do 30 traveling pushups. So, yeah.

This is going to be the kick in the butt that I need. Let's. Go!

  2. I really would love to do this with you but it is football season and I want to have a drink or two here and there! j/k - actually I'm still limited with the neck situation so what have the workouts been like?

  12. That is a kick butt challenge! I think I could do it all, besides the no booze thing. My two year old and I are working on potty training. Worst idea ever. Though in reality I don't need a glass of wine at night, it sure is nice!! That being said, I'm seriously considering this since that's the only one (oh and the copious amounts of water!) that I don't do pretty regularly. Thanks for the inspiration! #wowlinkup

  14. Oh oh I can't wait to see your progress from this!! Mr. Shut Up and Train sounds like a lot of something!! You can do it though. And you will have fun while you're at it. But no alcohol for 21 days? Oh the pressure. Jes kidding. You will do just fine! #wowlinkup

  15. There you go! We are human we all take steps backwards every once in a while. The good thing is that you're getting back up and "doing the damn thing" <---love that. Isn't is strange that sometimes we hear or get the message right when we need it?? Good job girl!

    (PS I totally understand missing booze. I'm going on week....4?)
