Motivation Monday – Be Your Own Hero!

Be your own dang hero – don’t show up because you feel you have to… show up because you know you are worth that!

Doing what YOU know is best, what YOU are capable of, what YOU are empowered and inspired enough to do? {{ H E R O I C }}

Go be the hero you are capable of being!

 

Work for it Wednesday – Keep Going

Yes, you see me show up.
You see me work for it.
If you pay attention, you also see me struggle. I’m transparent, I own my struggles, as they are part of my story and what gives me strength.

What you don’t see is the water breaks, the catch-my-breath breaks, the incredulous “you want me to do WHAT, Shaun?!” looks…

Yes, sometimes these add up to minutes… but 15 minutes of movement is better than 0 minutes.

So do what you gotta do. Take your breaks. Catch your breath. It’s all part of it…

But keep going. Pausing is NOT the same as stopping.

Dear Monday, Please be kind…

Dear Monday, please be kind…

That was honestly my first thought when I woke up, and last week I was already thinking about how exhausting this week is gonna be.

It’s just such a busy time of year, being pulled in so many different directions… but we got it done nice and early, because DESPITE being busy, we DO the things we need to do, WITHOUT making excuses!

The wind was not so kind to my hair on my walk in… what do you think, should I stick with it? 😉

 

Motivation Monday – Sore and Back for More!

I messaged Sara yesterday saying she’s gonna LOVE my new shirt today, because I knew she would… and because it’s true as eff!

Last week was challenging – but we are BACK for another round because there’s moves to perfect! 😉

Back to 45 minute workouts at 4am, back to resistance bands and sliders, and back to mostly clean nutrition… and as sore as we may be, we will do it, because the alternative is to just get by and be mediocre… and pardon my language, but fuck that!

Go make your Monday count!

Motivation Monday – Courage

There is COURAGE in the simple truth that you are pushing through.

And you are, right? We all have obstacles. We all have to make tough decisions, tap into our inner strength and determination, and fail our way through challenges, setbacks, obstacles and fears.

But every step you take in the forward direction puts you one step closer.

Every challenge you rise to, every obstacle you scale, every bout of fear you claw through… you are CLOSER.

And so all you need to do is keep doing JUST THAT. Keep going, one step at a time, and you will get there!

Have the courage to KEEP GOING!

Just like the champion Red Sox did! 😉

(Oh, and go Patriots! 💕🏈)

 

 

Mind Over Matter Monday – SLAY

Sometimes I purposely pick out the shirts I wear. Reverse engineering happening and such…

There’s a lot going on in my life both personally and professionally and I definitely feel pulled in way too many directions, dodging too many stressors.

And I know for what I’m trying to achieve, stress isn’t conducive to that, so I’m trying to remind myself that all I can do is my best.

And sometimes, that doesn’t feel like slaying… but considering the pull I’ve been feeling to just curl up and block everything out, that I’m waking up, and showing up, for right now, that’s slaying.

You gotta give yourself credit for even showing up – sometimes that’s a battle in and of itself!

GratiTuesday – Motivation

💕 GratiTuesday! 💕

Today’s Gratitude is for all of YOU!

I get so many messages on my stories, and uplifting comments on my posts, and those words really do mean so much!

There is a bit of a misconception that I am always motivated, and while I’m a self starter who truly loves crushing a good workout and the feelings associated with it, I’m also human and I do find myself in moments where outside motivation makes the difference!

Thank you 💕
