Motivation Monday

Rise and shine!photo

There’s just something about Monday mornings. I know, I know, most people hate them. The weekend’s over, back to work, blah blah blah. I’ll admit, I have weeks like that here and there. But for the most part, Monday mornings get me really pumped up! As I sit and drink my AM coffee (with my fave non dairy creamer, So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer – uh, YUM!), I mentally go through my week play by play. What do I want to accomplish by Friday? What little morsels of joy will I soak up each day? And, of course, what does my exercise schedule look like this week? I literally write down each day’s activity as if it were as finite as a dentist appointment. Here’s this week’s plan:

Monday: 45min [interval] run + a fun ab workout

Tuesday: 1hr Nicole Sturtze Fitness bootcamp!

Wednesday: 60min strength/cardio circuit

Thursday: 1hr Nicole Sturtze Fitness bootcamp!

Friday: Rest day – we’ve got a fun party we’re planning for friends so I’ll take it easy and enjoy!

And for extra motivation, here’s one of my very favorite playlist items right now:

“My Body” by Young the Giant

The lyric that keeps me going: “My body tells me no, but I won’t quit, cause I want more.” I belt it out during those last few reps or that last mile to give everything I’ve got!
