It’s been over a week...sheesh. I had to crawl into a hole and straighten my life out haha. I was feeling really ungrateful for things and kind of being a big baby. This past Sunday I checked myself and got back on track real quick.
I organized my apartment (feeling grateful for the roof over my head and having stuff to organize), went grocery shopping for the first time since I moved in, did loads of laundry, and caught up on some work while spending time with my family.
It’s never easy to go through it. But with Monday’s come the start of a fresh week and fresh goals🤓 Pushing through it day by day.
Sorry my camera angle, lighting, etc., is terrible. Gym was full and I wanted to watch MNF while working out😜
Thank you all for still being here, and engaging in my content💕
Monday Motivation: mindset. I’ve been working towards my fit body for awhile and sometimes it shows. I believe this outer strength is actually a reflection of my inner strength. For many years I thought I was inferior. Others were smarter, better, prettier than me. I changed that mindset in the last couple years and wouldn’t you know it, my body changed too. How crazy is that?! The moment the negativity left I was able to make changes. The mind is a very powerful tool. Is your mindset holding you back? Take charge today! 💪🏼 #mindset#positivevibes#abs PC: @thesarahlydia

Anyone else guilty of pressing the snooze button… over… and over...again?? .
Guess what - today was the first day in a VERY long time that I got up when my alarm went off!
I recently read the following in the book the 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins and it totally changed the way I look at the snooze button. .
“We sleep in cycles that take about 90-110 minutes to complete. About 2 hours before you wake up, these sleep cycles end and your body starts to slowly prepare to wake up. If you hit the snooze button and drift back to sleep, you force your brain to start a new sleep cycle that is 90-110 minutes long. .
When the snooze alarm goes off 15 minutes later, the cortical region of your brain, which is part of the brain responsible for decision-making, attention, alertment, and self-control, is still in the sleep cycle. It won’t be able to snap awake - it needs 75 more minutes to finish what the snooze button started. .
It can take up to 4 hours for this sleep inertia condition to wear off and for you cognitive functions to return to their full capacity That why you feel so darn groggy when you get up after hitting the snooze. It’s not beach you didn't get enough sleep. It’s because you hit the snooze button, you started a new sleep cycle and then interrupted it. On days when you hit the snooze button, there’s no way you’re at your best. .
So i’m dead serious about this. The alarm goes off. No snooze button. Get up. Non negotiable!”
