Motivation Monday (Sans the Monday)

Posted: November 6, 2012 in Music, Quotes, S&S Workouts

Since it’s college football season, I thought this was appropriate…. But it’s so true! You should never be ready to give up.

It’s been a hectic 7 days. A family emergency has meant anxiety, stress, not eating well, and not exercising as much. It sucks. You feel so out of it. Not to mention the worry and fear involved in that kind of situation.

Week 1 game plan has been such: drink tea instead of coffee, pack fruit and nuts for on-the-go, do a quick 20-30-minute workout right when I wake up, and try to go to sleep early.

Week 2 game plan: cut back on dairy, bread, and meat, add more veggies to my meals, cut back on candy and only snack on dark chocolate, go to sleep still a little early, add longer workouts back in.

What do you do when you have a family emergency?

What are some things that are keeping me focused on myself? (I know that sounds selfish, but there comes a point when worrying is no longer necessary and you need to focus on keeping yourself healthy or else you won’t be able to help anyone!)

*1/2 Burpee: In plank position, jump the feet together toward the chest, then back to their starting position, then jumping jack them out wide, then in together, then complete one pushup. Continue for 30-60 seconds.

*Squat Side-Shuffle: Stand with feet underneath hips. Shuffle feet and body to left so feet are just wider than shoulder-width and squat twice. Shuffle feet and body all the way to the right, past your starting point, and squat for two. Continue for 30-60 seconds.
