Monday’s aren’t so bad right?
That is the mantra I am telling myself this morning :). Monday is the start of a new week, and a new opportunity to make it a GREAT week, so that is what I am going to try and do today and this week. Who’s with me?
I went to bed pretty optimistic last night — thanks to a great weekend. So I started this week off with a nice, refreshing workout to go along with it
Workout of the Day: Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown and 30 minutes stationary bike (10 miles)
Jillian is a little to loud for my taste sometimes — but her yoga is a nice mix of relaxing and heart pumping. A nice Monday morning routine.
Plus 30 minutes on the bike in the gym after.
Unfortunately I was so in the moment and zen that I didn’t realize I was running about 10-15 minutes behind this morning — so I quickly jumped into gear and got moving.
You all know I carry around my beautiful little purple journal in case inspiration strikes at any moment.
This week — I’m giving myself a little assignment of actually opening up the journal and writing a couple time a day. Specific things I hope to include:
- an inspirational quote to focus on through out the day
- work outs of the day
- eating and eating trends through out the day
- anything out of the ordinary
This is really just inspired by my own desire to take ownership of where I’m at, where I’m going, and how I’m going to get there. I’ll keep you all up to date on how it’s going and reactions I’m experiencing.
My quote for the day
“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.” – Farrah Gray
I am loving this quote today because I am currently really trying to find and take advantage of opportunities out there. Be introspective, recognize what makes me happy, and push to find that happiness.
I will be back later this afternoon with my work out plan for the week — I think I’ve left you all with enough to chew on this morning 🙂
Question of the day: What is your favorite motivational or inspirational quote?
