Work For It Wednesday – Progress!

I have to work at it just like anyone else.
I had to progress like anyone else.
I had to show up and do what I could do, till I could do what I wanted to do, like anyone else.

And my fitness journey actually started with the guy who trained me today – Shaun T!

And it never fails, every time I do a workout with Shaun, I go back to the first workout of his I ever did – an ASSKICKING workout from his T-25 Beta (you are supposed to start with Alpha and graduate but, silly me put the wrong workout in) that left me sprawled on the floor for a solid 5 minutes after.

Don’t get me wrong, he still kicks my ass, but I have grown. I have progressed. I have improved. I have gotten stronger. I can do his workouts, and I can work for it just like anyone else!

It didn’t get any EASIER, I just got BETTER, because I trusted the process, believed in myself, and stayed accountable (thanks to my awesome group!)

Thankful Thursday – Yoga with my dog

Me and my yoga buddy got some extra snuggles in between our movement! I just LOVE her.

Usually, I finish before she is up, but she sometimes catches the tail end of my workouts, and she’s all for a good stretch, and I am all for a good snuggle!

Every day I am GRATEFUL to have such a snuggle bug dog that loves and craves human contact – I can NEVER get enough!

Is your dog a snuggler?

Never Miss A Monday!

I try to practice what I preach to the best of my ability… and that’s why I showed up this morning and got it done.

Despite the massive headache.
Despite the fact my dog was sick last night and kinda up my butt this morning.
Despite the fact I actually didn’t wanna.

But you’ve seen me say never miss a Monday, and I knew I’d feel worse if I did skip today (and I didn’t make it to day 69/80 with no skips to skip NOW), so we got it done.

Does it make me a hero? Nope. But it makes me a better ME. And that’s the goal, to better myself every day.
