Adventures in Pregnancy – SLEEP

When your shirt basically calls out the reason you didn’t get up and get an official workout in…

Part of pregnancy, for me, is striking the balance between the movement I need and love, but also being gentle and getting sleep while it’s a little easier.

And today was one of those days with no work and nowhere to be very early, I could sleep in a bit. And then I did do a few reps of some movement, and since we’re also gonna be gettin’ our groove on at the Oblivious Fools show today, I’ll call it a good balance.

Because sleep is freakin’ awesome, mannnn 💕

Tip Tuesday – Fitness Journey

Just starting out?

Then my number one fitness tip is for YOU!

You don’t have to push play and go full speed right away! If you haven’t been active in a while, your focus should just be on doing what you can and building a fitness foundation. If you feel you can go balls to the wall, great, but often people try to do too much, too soon and it makes them feel defeated, which DEFINITELY does not motivate you to keep going!

It’s perfectly fine to start with a few minutes of exercise and work your way up to a full workout. Five or ten minutes of exercise a day is better than zero minutes! Try to add one minute each day until you can do a full workout.

Just show up – you are worth it and you CAN DO hard things! 💕

 

Make It Work Monday – Phish Saves The Day!

Monday didn’t start out so great – one of the moves in my workout triggered a bout of dizziness, so the rest of my workout was spent trying not to trigger that again, and it’s just not the way I wanted to start the week, you know?

But life happens.

So I did what I could in my workout, and realized it’s no reason to let the rest of the day suck – the day was literally only 4 hours old at that point, which meant I had 20 hours to turn this ship around!

A delicious coffee and an awesome commute almost completely covered by one of my fave Phish jams – Sand @ Big Cypress 12.31.99, and my mood was instantly boosted!

What will you do to make Monday awesome?

 

Attitude of Gratitude – Happy Veterans Day

I don’t like to think I can’t do something.

But I think most people know why I could never be a member of the military – for my safety and the safety of others, I think it’s painfully obvious that I couldn’t, with how poorly my ears function.

So as someone who has immense love and pride for her country and those who fight for it, I’m GRATEFUL to be able to show my love and support for the military on an every day basis, by showing up and bringing my absolute best efforts to my JOB!

Having been a Navy contractor in Newport for 11.5+ years now, I’ve worked with SO MANY amazing veterans and active duty military, and I consider it such an honor to put my pride and my talents to use for their use!

It’s all about perspective; maybe I can’t be in the military, but I can show my gratitude in other ways, so that’s what I do! 🇺🇸💕

Motivation Monday – Time

First Monday of a new month! Time for some motivation! Will you make the shortest month the best one? February is our shortest month, but that doesn’t mean you cant change the world, and change your life during this short but sweet month!

The old adage is true, and I fully embrace it – it doesn’t matter how much time you do (or don’t!) have – what DOES matter is what you DO with the time you have.

What will you do today to better your life, to brighten your future?

Motivation Monday – M.O.N.D.A.Y.

This girl loves her an acronym! 🙂

MONDAY Acronym

Plus, the message is spot on! I love mornings because it brings a new day, and how the morning goes can set the tone for the rest of the day (sometimes!). A new day is a gift, and so it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, last week, or last month. What matters is what you do today!

Monday’s aren’t so bad, if you make them count 🙂
