Motivation Monday

Posted: November 14, 2011 in Articles, Music

HA! It's so true. I barely even help with the cooking, yet I still find myself in the kitchen helping during the holidays.

It’s the week before Thanksgiving (which I’ll be talking about pre-holiday and holiday tips and tricks tomorrow) and it’s time to really kick up the intensity pre-holiday season.

What do you need to motivate you? Music? Check. Inspirational quotes? Check. Real people accomplishes real physical tasks? CHECK!

Today’s Quote Theme:
What do YOU want to be around for and prepared for in the future that’s worth changing your life and taking care of yourself for now?

“A hungry stomach seldom scorns plain food.” -Horace

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” -Neale Donald Walsch

“It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.” -Jackie Joyner-Kersee

Belt It Out—On the Treadmill… Get It!?
“We Found Love” by Rihanna (Warning, really long intro and heavy PDA)

“Breathing” by Jason Derulo (Oh, and he’s shirtless for part of the song 🙂 )

Okay, I know I shared this “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida song a few weeks ago, but have you actually watched the video? I didn’t because I was at work when I YouTubed it, but I just did and whoa. All I want to do is work out after watching it. Flo Rida runs and boxes, and dang, I’m impressed. And seriously, all I want to do is run or jump in the ring right now. The man proves with his music that exercise really does give you a good feeling.

She Did It; YOU Can Do It, Too!
Think that you could never work up to running? Or working out for more than 15 minutes a day? Or going vegetarian? Or vegan? This normal, everyday woman (who’s a teacher, so she works like everyone else), proves that you can and the benefits are amazing.

100 Super Foods
Eating better doesn’t have to mean going on a strict “diet” of boring, bland food. (Though, like in the quote above, your goal is to fuel your body so you don’t have to overload your taste buds with crazy foods; your body likes simple, plain foods, too.) Thanks to SparkPeople, you can browse this list of 100 good-for-you foods. Start planning on how to incorporate them into your holiday cooking now!
