Motivation Monday

There's nothing wrong with a little fear to get you moving!

Tomorrow starts a new wellness challenge at my workplace. It’s called “Maintain, Don’t Gain” and the premise is to maintain your weight for 8 weeks over the holiday season. If you lose weight, good for you! but it’s not necessary. It’s all about promoting healthy food and exercise choices and keeping people on track despite the hectic, food-filled holidays. I am not participating because I will be one of the numbers-keepers, but I will definitely be playing outside of work and really encouraging all those participating. Which is where this blog comes in. I want to give you good insight into which DVDs are worth your time, some recipes that won’t break your time or cash bank, and other tips and tricks to keep you motivated and on the right track to success.

 

Good Vibrations (I’m obsessed with these songs. They give me a good feeling. HA! Get it!?)
Good Feeling by Flo Rida
Hanuman by Rodrigo y Gabriela

 

Read, Internalize, Repeat
“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” –Mohandas Gandhi

‎”The gap between where you are and where you want to be is called frustration. Frustration is eliminated by education and action.” –Anonymous

“You brush your teeth and take a shower every day! Why not make fitness a non-negotiable part of your daily routine??”  –Chalene Johnson

 

The Perfect Lunch-Time Workout
Not only is this workout seriously awesome, but the man doing it is very nice to look at. Ladies, enjoy. Men, take notes 🙂 Seriously… those abs and thighs… they’re like a soccer player’s! Oh man…

 

Picture This
A lower weight doesn’t always mean healthy—remember that muscles are beautiful, ladies!

 

Factastic Truths
*A recent study shows that the post-exercise effect on your mood (namely, the HAPPY-WOO!-AWESOME feeling you get when you workout) may last for longer than originally thought. It’s been found that aerobic training of moderate intensity improves your mood for up to 12 hours post-exercise. Feeling bummed, frustrated, or out of it? Exercise! You’ll feel better.

*Even small amounts of physical activity will help reduce your heart disease risk… and the benefits increase along with the amount of activity. Strengthen your heart by taking it for a walk and lifting some weights.

 

The Youngest Fitness Instructor
C.J. Senter is 10 years old. Ten. And he’s motivating kids in his hometown Atlanta, Georgia, to get active because it’s fun. He even has his own workout DVD. He’s 10. Ten! So cool.
