Work For It Wednesday – Pushups with Knee Tuck

Today is supposed to be a day off from my program, so I was gonna run, but this weather is not run-friendly so I instead opted to do Friday’s workout today, and hopefully Mother Nature calms her shit so I can run Friday… (hint, hint, girl…)

Well, Joel had some surprises for me today, starting with a full body HIIT workout including a move I have never done… obviously there is MUCH room for improvement here, but I’m willing to work for it, I’m willing to improve.

If you aren’t willing to work for it, to work towards improvement, nothing I say or do can help you.

YOU have to be willing to put in the work – you ready?!

Thursday Thoughts – Celebrate The Journey, Not Just The Destination!

We are our own harshest critics, right?

There are a lot of miles tacked up on this paper, but I was so focused on the END RESULT that I was forgetting to celebrate the JOURNEY of getting there, forgetting to celebrate the fact that my legs have run 49.99 miles in 42 days!

For reference (and if I’m being honest, FUN!), I tallied up all my runs from 21August2017 through 17June2018, for a total of 15 runs and 32.3 miles total, in TEN MONTHS.

From the start of this challenge (18June2018) through 31July2018, I have 17 runs totaling 49.99 miles in SIX WEEKS.

That’s a HUGE difference and I needed the reminder that I’m CRUSHING IT, instead of being ‘woe is me, I’m so behind the pace I set for this.’

Eff no, I’m gonna celebrate faster times, longer runs, frequency, and the fact my legs are gettin’ toned. as. eff!

Don’t be so damn focused on the DESTINATION that you neglect to •appreciate and celebrate• the JOURNEY that gets you there! 😊

 

Motivation Monday – Be So Busy Improving…

I don’t have much else to say on this fine Monday other than this. There is being constructive, and being cruel/critical. If you aren’t gonna frame your message in a way that will encourage, empower, and lift someone up, there is no sense in the message.

We get nowhere by criticizing and cutting people down.

When you are about to speak words, think about how the same words spoken to you would make YOU feel, and then speak accordingly.

Remember, words have wings so speak good things!
