Meal prep Monday! I don’t prepare whole meals, but I make sure my breakfasts and my snacks are taken care of – those are important. Our lunches the next day are from the night before’s dinner, and we are the type to pick dinner based on our craving at the time.
But still, getting my preworkouts, my snacks, and my breakfasts ready is a huge step towards staying in line with my goals.
Be willing to take the 30-60 minutes to set yourself up for the week. It is these seemingly small gestures/actions that will have the greatest impact on how your week goes!
And before you protest – tough love time – you DO have the time to do this. When you know you are worth the effort – and you ARE – you MAKE the time!
Tis the season for watermelon! How refreshing does this sound?!
Seems like a drink you’d stick an umbrella in, am I right?
Did you know that, according to the American Diabetes Association, 1.4 million American’s are newly diagnosed with Diabetes every year?
1.4 million NEW cases. Tacked on to a society that is teeming with Diabetics. We are everywhere.
We can’t let this number grow.
We need more research, we need to be more mindful about what we do and do not put in our bodies, we need to make being active a priority, not a once-in-a-while thing, we need to learn how best to manage our stress and emotions, and we need to CARE about our health.
We must be diligent in this management. I know for me, I don’t stay on top of things as well as I should, and I am actively working on changing that because myself and my health are worth that. You and YOUR health are worth that.
You are not alone, and this is not how your chapter ends – if you need an accountabilibuddy, reach out – I’d love to work with you!
Let’s bring that statistic down by a LOT, shall we?
Do what makes you feel good. Achieve your goals, work towards your dreams, live your life… do the things that make you feel alive, inspired, empowered…
Make yourself so proud. Be your biggest fan. Your biggest believer, strongest supporter. Don’t worry about impression anyone else. Make yourself proud of yourself!
Are you proud of yourself?
BOOM. That’s the way to do it!
Do you have a favorite TV series? What is it? What do you love about it?
Looking down won’t help you – look forward, and know that whatever this is, it too shall pass. Actively choose to stay positive, finding the silver lining (it IS there, promise!), and decide that this will neither make you or break you.
Are you looking up?
Two of my favorite flavors meet today!
Note: you can also use hazelnut iced coffee instead of water and/or hazelnut extract!
What do you think about this one?
