Work For It Wednesdaaaaaay

When your reward to yourself for successfully finishing phase 1 is not brownies, cupcakes, or ice cream, but rather, new leggings, a new sports bra, a 15lb Kettlebell, and heavier weights so you can kick even MORE ass, you might be OBSESSED 😉

I’m not knocking those who choose/chose an edible reward, this is just how I personally prefer to reward my hard work and dedication to myself!

Wanna join me on my 80 Day Obsession journey? Let’s do it! Start here!

Tip Tuesday – Memorize

Y’all, we gotta keep our brains sharp and on point! The best way to do that is to W O R K them!

One good way is to memorize something new every day – it can be something as simple as a quote you love, a popular phrase, song lyrics, a poem, a random fact… it doesn’t matter what it is, what matters is every day you give your brain fuel!

I {bend} so I don’t {break}

Let’s be slightly melodramatic for a second, yeah? 😉

This shirt is one of the truthiest ones I own, because while this one might seem a little more geared towards yoga, fitness/wellness in general are what have kept me from breaking/breaking down, especially as I battled some rough seas the last few months – having a goal, an accountability group, the capability to get up and go to it, for my body… for my soul… for my mind… that saved me.

That saved me from spiraling too deep into what I was working through.

I can’t control a lot of things (if only I WAS the master puppeteer!)…

But I can control showing up every day.
I can control pressing play.
I can control increasing my weights.
I can control LETTING myself feel the movement, allowing it to stretch and strengthen me, and I can control allowing myself to feel like a badass after (because that’s what a powerful workout does for you!)

I know not everyone sees it this way, but for me, fitness heals. It gives me a safe, productive outlet with which to do what I gotta do to get through what I gotta get through.

I bend, I lift, I move and I stretch {{so I don’t break}}

Could YOU use some support and accountability? I got you! Let’s do it – I LIVE to help others!

Fuck Yeah Friday

BOOM.

I am not trying to shame anybody here… but it boils down to if you constantly eat crap, you will constantly feel like crap. You need to actually fuel your body like you give a shit!

I think I have established that I am a HUGE believer in balance, not deprivation or labeling food “bad” – a treat here and there is actually helpful because a lack/deprivation mindset usually leads to a foodie free for all (and those are actually frowned upon) – the key there is ‘a’ treat such as a cupcake, a brownie… not a dozen or a whole pan.

Portion control and balance are key!

 

Thursday Thoughts – Strength

I feel completely comfortable calling this the true measure of strength.

And I mean, physical challenges are definitely just that, physically challenging… but I think the realest, hardest, grittiest and character building moments come in overcoming our mental, spiritual and emotional adversaries. From rising above what we thought we couldn’t – from rising above our lack mindset and creating an abundant one.

Just my .02 – what say you?
