I started my Monday off with such………

I started my Monday off with such positive energy and it’s been bubbling all day. It is so amazing to me  that if you feed the positive vibration it will attract even more positive energy. I know that there are naysayers who will say that all good things must come to an end. But I refuse to subscribe to that theory. So my question for today would be ” is it  wrong for me to ignore the negative and only allow  positive energy to fill my body”?

I know it’s going to rain all weekend but I am not………….

So I was just checking the weather for this weekend and there is not much hope for any sun. I know that they are calling for rain on Saturday and Sunday, but I am not going to let it affect my mood. I am setting my intentions for all things good and believe that this is the way it will be. I am looking forward to an awesome workout tomorrow and a great yoga practice on Sunday. Here’s to staying positive !

When you’re new in the gym please don’t…………..

When you’re new in the gym please don’t hang your head or feel out of place.  I noticed a new person working out shyly when  I was at the gym on Monday night. I could see that they were intimidated by the gym rats. I wanted to go over and say “don’t give up!”. We were all there at one time, and the truth is, that we are all there to improve our body and mind. As a self professed gym rat I  want  you to know that it is such a great step that you have taken for your health. Despite what a few people say most of us are excited for you and want you to stick with it. So welcome to the club and let’s all improve our health at our own pace.

How can it be that one day……………..

How can it be that my Saturday’s yoga practice took all that I had to complete and Sunday felt like I could go another 2 hours? I have similar experiences in the weight room as well. There are days that I can barely get through my workout and other days that there is not enough weight in the gym . I am constantly challenging myself and on days that I struggle I tell myself, give it 10 minutes. I know that if I can get through the early part I can complete my session. The key for me is to not give it up and enjoy the reward of a successful workout. So my question today is, do you face these same challenges and how do you overcome them?

You don’t judge a person by how they get knocked down you judge them…………

As I hit certain bumps and ( sometimes earthquakes) in my quest to live a healthy life and eat clean I try and remember some advice an old baseball coach  gave to me. You don’t judge a person by how they get knocked down you judge them on how they get back up. We are all going to slip and sometimes completely fall off of our program. The important thing is to get back up and begin again.

Staying Positive: When you look in the mirror today……..

When you look in the mirror today, observe yourself from the inside. There are too many times that we all look at small facial blemishes or wrinkles in our shirt rather than ourselves as a whole. I know it is easy for me to find many of my faults but today I am only going to look for the good within.
