Happy Friday, beauties!
We are officially 3 days out from the start of #mindbodymat! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.
We’ll be kicking things off here on the blog first thing Monday morning.
CLICK HERE to sign up if you haven’t already done so.
If you’re new here and want to know more about the free challenge CLICK HERE.
The Pilates Summer Series had over 4,000 women signed up so I have no doubt that this challenge will be full of dedicated Balanced Life beauties ready to cheer each other on. I encourage you all to dive in, participate and have fun with it!
Think of this as your mid-year “reset.”
It’s an opportunity to hit the pause button, refocus and refresh your body & mind before the busy Fall season begins.
We’re going to do a little bit each day to care for our well-being both on and off the mat.
Imagine yourself entering this next season of life feeling calm, confident and in control. That’s what #mindbodymat is all about…
Before we get started, here’s what you need to know:
Is it really free?
YES! Totally free.
While there is an opportunity to upgrade and maximize your results, it’s definitely not required.
The upgrade option is for those of you who love Pilates and want longer (20 minute), full-body workouts that you can do over the weekend or after the program concludes (fully downloadable and yours to keep forever).
The upgrade also includes goal setting worksheets, a Fall vision guide, and a guide to personal balance & values so if you really want to see changes this month, be sure to check it out. (it’s only $27 and 10% of all proceeds go to support Women For Women International).
Regardless of which option you choose I want you to commit.
I’m a big fan of PAID programs because when you have a little skin in the game you’re more likely to stick with it and see results.
So your “skin in the game” will be checking in with me each day. I encourage you to show me proof of your daily workout and/or self-care challenge on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter so that I know you’re out there and keeping up with the program.
Deal? Deal. 🙂
With every workout I’ll share a daily self-care challenge for you to complete. For your daily check-in use the hashtag #mindbodymat so we can cheer each other on and finish what we start.
(Bonus: starting today, every post that mentions me and uses the #mindbodymat hashtag counts as an entry for the amazing line-up of giveaways we have in store…hint hint: ATHLETA. So post away!)
Where will the workouts be posted?
Right here on The Balanced Life. Check back every morning to access your new workout and see your daily self-care challenge.
Do I need any extra equipment?
Nope! Just you, access to the internet, and your mat.
Although one day I may have you use water/wine bottles for weights. 🙂
Is there a workout schedule?
Yes. I’ll be sending it out on Friday morning so make sure you’re on this list to get the scoop.
What should I eat?
There’s no denying that what you put in your body affects the way you look and feel. While this challenge doesn’t have a specific meal plan component I’ll still be sharing TONS of recipes here on the blog and on the official #mindbodymat Pinterest board. You’ll have plenty of inspiration to nourish your body from the inside out.
Okay, that should be enough to get us started. I hope you’re excited!
Did I miss anything? If so, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. 🙂
I’ll see you back here on Monday morning for your first workout!
PS – it would mean the WORLD to me if you shared this with your friends! xo
