Are you a morning person? I mean who is? 🤔 However it's that type of thinking that's wrong, it's actually kinda negative. How many times have you gone to bed frustrated that you didn't get time to do that something in the day you told yourself you would? I've been stuck in a rut recently. My pattern goes like this; staying up late every evening for "me" time but snoozing my phone alarm every morning repeatedly. Familiar? Nope? Well here's some cake for being so awesome at winning at life. 🍰👌 Me on the other hand, the thought occurs to me on a morning basis to hurl my phone right out of the window. Just "five more minutes" I tell myself, I'll feel better and I'll be ready to start my day. 🤷🏼♀️ Yet five minutes turns to ten and before you know it I'm rushing to work again. Finally after what appears like a life sentence of a life rolling out of my warm and comfy bed I've realised I could just get out of bed early. Like two hours early every morning, sure I'll have to go to bed earlier but as they say "win the morning, win the day." Who knows after a week of doing it, I might even like it.
Raise your hand (or ponytail) if you’re a morning person 🙋🏼♀️ I am!
And I find it’s when I’m at my best - nothing starts my day off better than a killer sweat session! However if you’re more of a night hawk and like to get your sweat on in the evening, that’s cool too! Point of the matter is find when you’re at your BEST - when a workout makes the most sense for you and your busy lifestyle! •
Now often times, even as a trainer I don’t want to think about what that next work out is going to be. Sometimes I like to be lazy and have someone tell ME what to do. So for those days, I use the 7 minute app - 13 exercise for 30 seconds each with a 10 second break in between. For newbies or people looking to get back on the Fitness train, this is a great way to start! When you get a bit more conditioned to the workout, do a few rounds!! •
What other apps do you use to keep you motivated and on top of your goals?
I always said I don’t have the time to workout. Going to the gym was not an option because of mine and my husbands schedule. There just wasn’t time. But I knew I needed to start some sort of fitness routine if I wanted to be healthy. I realized that if I want to get healthy only I can change that so I need to make the time for it.
Then while scrolling through Facebook, I came across a post like this one. At home workouts, meal plans, etc. I was a little skeptical but figured what did I have to lose, especially since there was a money back guarantee.
The program I’m doing right now is 30-40min a day only 4x a week and you can move the days to fit your schedule. You get to be part of my accountability group which offers meal plans, recipes and most importantly, support from amazing woman that you can relate to. Message me to become a part of it.
Feeling pretty accomplished so far today. Woke up early for some yoga, got an hour of steady state cardio, managed to get to the cafe where I am going to try to update and clean up my super old galaxy note tab so it will write a paper for me and then class...today has been productive and it's only 9:40.
Good morning and happy Tuesday!! Mornings are the best for me for taking care of stuff since I'm a total morning person. I got the workout in, painting my toes and now grilling Harry some burgers for later and some zucchini that someone from work gave me. So good.
Have a great day!! #mornings#morningperson#bbq#hamburgers#zucchini#barbeque
Anyone else do dumb things when they travel that they wouldn’t do at home? I can’t be the only one, right?
Driving a motorbike is SE Asia is one of those things that almost everyone does. But I know very few people who actually had motorbike experience before hopping on one and whizzing away on the shitty streets of Thailand, Bali, or wherever else. I was one of those people in Myanmar. I resisted everywhere else on my 2015 Asia trip but when the choice was push bike or group tour and there were more than 2000 temples to explore... I went with the motorbike. Or rather, ebike. Not going to lie- I was slightly terrified driving down dirt roads in the pitch black with no helmet at 5am for my first run. But I survived and kinda loved it. So much so that in 2016 when in Indonesia I rented a motorbike for a day to explore and island.
Smashed up my leg.
And still have lovely scars and an actual hole in my knee thanks to that experience. Which is actually pretty lucky when I think of it.
That being said, I think it will be awhile before I try again 🤣. Who else has crashed their motorbike? Share your stories and injuries. .
Sometimes I feel really overwhelmed because I have so much I WANT to do and lets be honest patience is not one of my strongest character traits!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But 1) I’m seeing a correlation of me always feeling overwhelmed right about when its my time of the month and 2) Everything does not have to be done today, just because I WANT to get it all done today!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I make a list of Needs to be done vs Wants and prioritize each. Then when I’m checking things off that I’ve accomplished I feel better about the progress I’ve made, plus I LOVE lists!!! But one of the things I always do when I’m feeling overwhelmed is workout because its my BEST stress reliever!!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s your favorite stress reliever? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
