Hey y’all what up?!?!?!
I have had a great week so far and I must say it has been a pretty busy one. Sometimes staying motivated with whatever you are trying to be disciplined with can be tough. In my case, I wanted to keep my motivation high with my workouts and nutrition but all while allowing myself to enjoy hanging out with friends. I decided to grab a buddy all week! A few of the days I worked out with my hubby who is doing the Bodybuilding.com 12 week Transformation Challenge, I invited my girl Danny J to try Core Fusion Barre and a cycle class at Flywheel Sports, and I brought my girl Layne to a social run. Inviting friends not only helps me stay motivated but it makes me have fun with fitness. It’s not like another day at the gym where you are dreading to go. Instead, I was stoked. It’s also a great way to hang out with friends without neglecting workouts. I must say that after hanging out with Danny I have learned something important that she has mentioned…. to have fun with fitness. I truly feel that’s what I have been doing lately.
I keep an Awesome journal where I write something that was awesome in my day on a daily basis. Because I can be forgetful, I have set a reminder on my phone every night at 9pm to ask me what was awesome about my day. It allows me to think about it if I don’t get a chance to write it in my journal. With that being said, I wanted to share with you some of the Awesome things that I experienced last week.
* I stayed committed to being healthy- Yoga, Flywheel Sports Cycle, Social Run, and eating clean.
* I spent time with new friends and old friends.
* I bought a new yoga mat- I always used the ones that the studio provided and since I have been practicing more I wanted to invest in a nice yoga mat.
* I had a full day date with my husband.
*I was able to do a free giveaway from Bodybuilding.com through my Youtube channel. I am excited that Bodybuilding.com allows me to do things like this because I know it helps with others that can’t afford these things but would like to try the products.
* I walked my puppies in the nice sunny weather. I love sunny days!
* I joined a kickball league.
Okay so enough about me… what about you? Anything awesome happen to you? It can be having green lights all day or being able to sleep in. Writing these little notes has allowed me to look at any day in the best way possible. So if your going through tough times right now I challenge you to keep an Awesome Journal…. I really think it can help!
My goals for this week are to be more present and aware of my surroundings. By this I mean putting down the phone when I am in the car with my husband,enjoy the scenery, and appreciating our quality time together. We live in a world where we are disconnected and I really want to connect better with my inner self and surroundings.
Have a great Monday!
Good luck on your week of awesomeness! Sounds like you’re ready to #rockit!
