POWERUP ON THE GO
Sometimes it's hard when I’m traveling, especially at the airport because of all the booze and the fried food. The last time I was at the airport I ate protein bars because there weren’t any healthy options. Even when I’m at the airport for a few hours, I've learned to avoid a lot of the bad stuff and stick to either bringing my own food or looking for healthy options instead.
I was in Nashville this weekend with a few friends and we went to this amazing brunch spot. I had used my recharge meal from the night before so I got a light dish. There’s always the initial “you’re the loser who orders something boring at brunch” thing, but I didn’t feel bad about it. It's not impossible to like the healthy options on the menu and I’m doing this plan because I actually enjoy being healthy.
POWERUP IS GUILT-FREE
I like how there’s no guilt. You just have to be mindful of what you eat and how you spend your time. Honestly, you start to feel less excited about the recharge meals because you’ve been eating so well for the first few weeks of the program and want to keep that up consistently for the full 16 weeks.
ESTABLISHING LIFE-LONG HABITS

PowerUP is pushing me harder. It’s taking me from 80 to 100 percent. 16 weeks is a long time to establish habits with yourself and form a good schedule and a good regime. I don’t want to go backwards and by the end of 16 weeks, I don’t anticipate that happening.
I’m probably going to keep this up for the long run, even after I’m done with the program. Even when I mess up, I’ve learned not to feel guilty or compare myself to others. I’m trying not to be tied up in the Instagram world where everyone is doing everything perfectly all of the time. Instead, I’m trying to live in the moment. I feel that PowerUP is different in that aspect and I’ve genuinely felt better about myself since starting the program.
