A friend of mine shared this image on her Facebook page yesterday and it really made sense to me when I read it.
It got me thinking that:
Lots of people these days are described as unmotivated or lazy, I don’t believe that this is due to lack of direction or lack of want, but more to do with a lack of knowing WHY.
It’s great to set goals, to know your milestone points and end destination, but it’s also just as important to know: WHY you are taking this path, WHY it is so important for you to get there and WHY you are taking the steps that you are taking. Solid answers to these why’s will help to keep you motivated and moving towards your goals.

I love the heat! And a good sweaty workout is always in order 💪🏼yesterday I was pushed for time so I gave myself a half an hour challenge,
Smashed out AMRAP, it’s funny how much you can push when your on a time schedule.
Make no excuses for lack of time
Just use this to set your smashing goal #amrap#lffitness#lindafratelfitness#gettingitdone#fitlife#noexcuses
#flashbackfriday to summer holidays runs ☀️🏃🏻♂️at its best because one does not miss at opportunity to run at Burleigh Heads. As I find the views are stunning overlooking the Gold Coast skyline that I often get lost in the moment. Can’t wait to be back here running again in a few months.

Here is a beautiful collage of my life over the last 3 days/nights.
In the background (not captured on the photo) behind the scenes:
• Ensuring the smooth operations of my business continued
• Ensuring my 13 yo son is well prepped/equipped for exams he started this week
• Ensuring my 10 yo daughter has all her homework sorted, getting all necessary items on the lists for upcoming concerts, & ensured exam revision continued.
• Ensuring remaining motherly duties still ran like clockwork.
Outcome: • Great feedback from the audience of the Fintech sessions saying they valued my insights from my hands-on experience in the mobile & tech work in Africa • Great feedback from the affordable streaming panel with a new client acquisition because the client valued that I always (irrespective of the technology or trends) emphasized focus on the #customerexperience and #userexperience & I always put the customer first rather than theories. • The operations of my business were unaffected • My passion project promo video was launched • Finally caught up physically with my industry peers who are based throughout Africa and the UK. • Kids and family life functioned like a well-oiled machine (well sort of) • I feel happy & fulfilled (but slightly tired)

@goalkeeperwarz came through a brutal session 2day Boom Power Performance Coaching. 'High Tower' was not messing around 2day and pushed himself all the way through 2 the bitter end. Massive progression from the big man and in 10 sessions looking sharper than ever 👏
Our little Marcel has started his therapy with Gina Gould @timandgina and we cannot wait to see his progress 😻
CH is a condition kittens are born with and essentially affects their coordination because the messages between the brain and the nerves are all scrambled ...we are trying to rectify that with all the tools we have at our disposal ! It has been done with puppies and we don’t see what we can’t achieve it with Marcel....
We are getting some great support from Distance Energy Healing for Animals as well to get as much information on his little body as possible and get him more stable in his movements.
I tell you ...getting these little bugs well takes a village and you know we are one determined team !
Go Marcel go ❤️
Early morning shenanigans at the gym today, you can do all of these things at home. Grab a dumbbell or do the lunges with just your body weight but focus on engaging your core throughout the movement. Your movements are stronger and more stable when your core is engaged. . .
Swipe right to see the rest of the movements. I only did squats and lunges today for my workout then finished off with some core work focusing on just stabilizing myself with my core. . .
I hit a postbaby PB today with my squats so I'm pretty happy about that. . .
Who got or is going to get their workout in today?
Well @lyndziemotcheck -my personal trainer- got me all taped up, packed me with water and gel packs (that ain't playing when you need some fuel y'all⛽️🙌🏻) and I went out and got it done, wearing blaze orange of course, because, well, #openingday . 7.75 miles and then dragged and limped the last.25 home. Guess the thing holding my left leg onto my body was done for the day. 😫 Bossy strained groin anyway. 😒 But! I'm still counting it a victory. #marathon2019#eyeofthetiger#mymontagemoment#bucketlist#gettingitdone#halfwayto90#myracemypace
