Okay, so let’s talk about MOTIVATION and RESULTS. First thing, nothing AND no one BUT you is going to get YOU the results you want fitness wise. I got to where I am at today through hours of hard work and sacrifice. I have had people help me here and there along the way, but I had gotten results and kept weight off by fighting for what I wanted. Second thing, motivation is kinda bs. Yeah, it’s nice and makes you feel good, but it’s not what is going to get you working out and eating healthy consistently. Fitness isn’t a magical pill, solution, or formula. You have to put your nose down and do the work. Motivation comes and goes, but will never be daily. End of the story. If you don’t want to do the work, nothing will work. Muscles aren’t bought, they are built. Fitness is up to YOU, no one else.
Sitting here sipping my coffee and watching the snow fall ❄️ REALLY, REALLY hoping to be able to workout tomorrow! I want to get back on track SO BAD. 2018 has been kicking my butt. I have had a crazy, busy schedule, had a super bad cold, and then the flu. I am feeling mostly better, so I’m hoping I feel good enough to get a sweat in. I am feeling good enough to eat things besides crackers/bread/junk food, so that’s a start. Remember, things happen! Never be too hard on yourself
Hands down, best concert I’ve ever been to (and LP is the 91st artist I’ve seen, so I’ve been to quite a few and yes I keep track...I have a list ✨). LP, you are freaking amazing. P.S. video was taken by my boyfriend cuz this is my fav LP song and I was too busy singing (pretty sure you can hear me on the video 🙈) and dancing to video tape it!
Okay so I might not have gotten home until 8pm and it might be midnight now and I might have the flu still and I might need to study a bunch for an exam I have tomorrow BUT I decided to spend the last 2ish hours making handmade valentine’s day cards and talking to my boyfriend. One of my major life rules is: human interaction and acts of kindness > sleep. I have missed countless hours of sleep because of long conversations, making projects, writing notes of encouragement, and so on. I have felt like absolute crap because of lack of sleep but it has always been worth it. I love giving gifts. I love making people feel important. And I love love love seeing people smile. My most prominent personality trait is that I care A LOT about people. I always have and always will (not always the best trait to have btw...caring a lot means feeling both the happiness and heartbreak of others). So my advice to you, lose a few hours of sleep here and there. Have the conversation. Hug your friend. Write a love note. Make your significant other’s lunch. Send your mom flowers. You won’t have any regrets. I promise 💗
Would love to be somewhere outside enjoying nature instead of 😷 so throwback to paddling around on Lake Union this last summer 🤙 The main thing I miss about living in the Seattle area is all the water everywhere. It surely is beautiful when there is blue skies 🦋🌊 (which really isn’t that often ☔️ haha)
Turns out I have the flu 🤮🤧🤒😷 I took my exam today and then went straight to the doctor. Praying for a speedy recovery cuz I really don’t have time to be sick in the program I’m in. Also, hoping to stop puking soon...😥
Workout done ✔️ Remember, consistency always trumps intensity. Do your best to get a workout in at least 5 days a week. That’s how you get results 💪 (well, that and eating good, real foods in the proper portions 🥦🥒🥑)
And here’s my plan so that I can kick butt ! Fail to plan and plan to fail... I even planned out my cheat days LOL Gotta do what you gotta do for those results ! Who’s with me ?! 🙋🏼♀️ I have an accountability group starting up soon, so if you’re interested hit me up or click the link in my bio. I would love for you to join my fitness family and get rad results with me 💕
