"Every positive thought propels you in the right direction"
I know what you are thinking I have heard that a hundred times! BLAH BLAH BLAH
Why do you think you keep hearing it over and over again? Because it is true, no matter how lame it sounds. It is all up to you, you get to choose what direction you want your day to go in :)
I love this quote because it can be applied to all your choices throughout the week as well. Every positive choice you make takes you closer to your goal. If by chance you make a bad choice don't beat yourself up about it. Focus on all the positive choices you made, write them down if needed. Move on and to do better the next day. Motivation doesn't just fall into your lap by the way, you have to search for it in every square inch of your day. Once you find it grab on with both hands and DON'T let go!
I mentioned before that I am part of a fit group. This is a HUGE part of staying motivated. What is stopping you from creating your own group of like minded people to achieve your goals? Believe me it is much harder to blow off your workout when you are part of a group where ladies are busting their butts right along side you.
The workout posted here is a sample of some of the workouts we do in our group! Maureen works hard to keep things interesting and plans out tough workouts that we have all built up to. When I first started out I couldn't even come close to doing everything that was posted. Sometimes I modified the exercises to get them all in. Keep going believe me EVERY day you are getting stronger and before you know it you will be proving that little voice inside your head saying "THIS IS TOO HARD" wrong.
When I have extra time I do add extras in such as the abs and legs posted below in the photo labeled "extras"
I had planned on lentil burgers this evening, but decided on a haystack. What is a haystack you might ask?
A haystack is what Seventh Day Adventists call a taco salad! I could seriously eat this meal every single day if I had to. I change the ingredients up often, but this is what I used tonight.
- baby spinach
- red onion
- smashed avocado with salt and pepper
- sunflower seeds
- sriracha + veganaise = delicious taco sauce. Salt & pepper to taste.
Having the lentils and quinoa prepared ahead of time means it took more time to post this blog than make supper! :)
