What if I told you the best results you’d see in yourself could happen in just four days a week?! Yes FOUR days a week.
That means three rest days.
Let me be honest with you I’ve had a hard time sticking to workout programs. I’d miss a day or two and feel like I’d disappointed myself, my potential, my results, and my team.
I started 80 day obsession a few months ago and stopped at day 65. I was so close to finishing but the hour workouts just weren’t working with my crazy, constant 16 hour shifts at work. I was drained and not enjoying my workouts.
My stomach is my worst area (in my opinion) and this is the only program that’s made me sore there and I am already seeing change!! Not this time!!! This program is by far the best one I’ve ever done. You workout four days a week with your rest days being Wednesday, Saturday AND Sunday!!🤩 only 30-40 minutes a day! I’ve never felt this sore, accomplished or better than I do now.
Oh yeah and while I’m confessing I ate two cookies today 🤷🏻♀️ why? I don’t even know. But I still worked out and am about to have a healthy dinner because those cookies didn’t ruin the rest of my day ✌🏼 I just finished up week 2 day 3 and I look forward to my workouts everyday! Without the pressure of having to workout 6-7 days a week. It’s recommended to do a light walk/run and/or stretch on your rest days.
With all these rest days I’m looking forward to them and I’m getting in more steps because I’m walking a lot on my rest days. Overall this program has made me better already in just two weeks! Can’t wait to see all my girl’s results by the end of our fall back into fitness challenge and with the months to come 🙌🏼 Link in bio babe if you want MORE✨
Roasted Beet Hummus
Add some color to your life with this roasted beet hummus - a healthy, creamy, and bright pink dip that's a real crowd-pleaser. Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Author; Salt & Lavender
1 small beet
2 cloves garlic
1 (19 fluid ounce) can chickpeas drained
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons tahini
1/3 cup olive oil
Pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 450F.
Line a baking dish with tin foil. Wash beet and trim the leaves/stem back (leaving an inch or two) if your beet has any. Don't trim the tail as you'll lose juice (and thus flavor) while roasting.
Add beet to the foil-lined baking dish and then cover with tin foil. Roast for at least 45 minutes. Check if beet is done by inserting a skewer. If it slides in easily (through the beet's centre), it's done.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
When the beet is cooling, you can get the hummus going. Add the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, salt, and pepper. Blend on high and slowly drizzle in olive oil. Blend until smooth (this may take a few minutes).
Once beet has cooled for a few minutes, peel it (I used a knife). Cut beet into a few chunks and place into food processor. Blend on high until it's smooth and mixed together.
Serve chilled with an extra drizzle of olive oil if desired.
You could probably blend everything together (except the oil) at once, but I made it the way I describe above because I wanted to ensure the hummus tasted good on its own prior to adding the beets.
I really struggled defining the size of the beet for this recipe. Mine was somewhere between small and medium-sized. You want one that will easily fit in the palm of your hand, basically. I suggest roasting more than one beet at a time if you don't want to turn the oven on for just one beet. Remaining beets can be used as a side dish or in a salad. #thesquatchallenge#squatchallenge

For most people it’s pretty easy to stick with healthy eating and a structured workout routine during the workweek, but for whatever reason the weekends throw us for a loop. Myself included cause ya girl likes to eat and partake in some alcoholic beverages 🤷🏻♀️ If you add up all the weekend days in a month (counting Friday, Saturday & Sunday) it’s about 12 days, which is almost HALF OF THE MONTH. So taking off on the weekends means you’re literally taking off 50% of the time, which isn’t ideal if you have a goal set to lose weight or get in shape.
I’m not saying that there isn’t room for some splurges and treats, but it’s important to keep your health goals in mind when making choices over the weekend. Since it is Friday and this is weighing (pun intended) heavy on my mind I thought I would share a few tips for how to stay on track over the weekend… while still enjoying yourself.
Think of it like a weekday. Do your workout. Eat like you would during the week. Good food choices will make you have more energy for all the fun you will have. During the week you have a plan right? Do the same thing on the weekend. Make your plan and stick to it.
Last but not least, don’t let one setback keep you from working toward your health goals. If you slip-up over the weekend, don’t let it get you down or bring on the mindset of saying I’ve already screwed up, might as well toss in the towel for this weekend start again on Monday. Nope! Just make sure your next meal is a healthy one and keep on going.
