WELCOME NEWBIE...so it’s January 2 already and you’re probably totes disappointed that the 28 program doesn’t start for another week. That Sam is a crazy kid, sometimes he gives us not-so-newbies a bonus week just because he loves us and thinks it will helps us to stay on track or to not keep drinking copious amounts of alcohol or to stop us from scoffing all the Christmas chocolate beyond the silly season or whatever. I don’t really know, I wasn’t paying attention as I opened another bottle of Christmas cheer last week. Anyway…you’re here now and you’re wondering what to do with yourself.
Here’s some links and tips from me (and probably most of your new 28 family, but I won’t speak for them, cos they’ll chip in on Facebook when you need them…they super cool like that).
You’re signed up! You’ve got your welcome email and your welcome bottle of champagne with matching chocolates*. Now what? You could gorge yourself on all the peanut butter and Tim Tams in your pantry OR you could start dipping your toes in the 28 wading pool. I totally recommend you spend this week splashing around with us because a) we’re fun and b) you’ll give yourself a head start when the boss gets back to town and starts cracking the whip on January 9th.
Here’s a little something I prepared earlier…
TIPS, TRICKS & TRUTH BOMBS This is where I get real and tell you that WINE IS OK…if you want it to be (and I sure as shit do)…but choose your poison and choose it knowing how it will impact your results. Sam would be the first person to explain this to you…probably over a beer. (NB: Some of these links require access to www.28bysamwood.com …so cool your jets if you haven’t got the magic key yet…it’ll happen).
Here’s some things that Sam and his ever fabulous Crew prepared earlier…
FOOD Get cooking. There’s a whole week’s worth of 28 recipes right here…TRUE…check it out and prepare to get excited! Just ignore the whole post-baby-body stuff if …ummm, you know…you don’t actually have one! The meals are the same. Just try Snez’s Kickstarter Smoothie or the Buckwheat Noodle Bowl or The Cauli Mac & Cheese…then tell me if you feel like you’re on a diet!
EXERCISE Get moving. Start RIGHT NOW and factor in 28 minutes into every day where you move. Get up off the couch. Walk past your front door and around your block a few times if that’s all you can manage. Just MOVE. And here’s some of Sam’s actual exercises if you want to give them a crack too…they’re not hard.
And finally your go to for all questions and concerns are the Crew. They’re at the end of this email email@example.com
(* and you could totally ask them where your welcome bottle of champagne and chocolates are too…but they may not respond in a timely manner on that one)
PS...The program’s usually unlock on the Thursday before the Monday kick off day. So if I were you, I’d pencil in some 1:1 time with yourself and your device of choice** on Thursday 5th. Get your shit together and then log in to www.28bysamwood.com on Monday when the workouts download a whole world of pain on your sorry ass…errr….I mean, open up a whole new world of wonderment, core strength and flexibility that you never knew you had.
