Motivation Monday

It’s been so busy lately that I’ve hardly had a chance to post! I’m sorry. But, of course, I’m back for Motivation Monday because I think it’s one of the most important days. Life is all about motivation—and I don’t just mean the physical fitness side of it. You cannot accomplish anything in life without motivation, from creating a successful friendship or romantic relationship to a profitable and happy career to your health.

Here are a few of the things keeping me going despite the cold, snowy weather.

Workout move of the day:
Alligator Pushup

Song of the day:
Gotta Have It by Jay-Z & Kanye West (*Parental advisory—sorry, it’s just such a good lifting song)

Article of the day:
“Resistance Training Versus Cardio: Which is Best for Reducing Belly Fat”

Quotes of the day:
“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” –John Wooden

“By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart.” –Confucius

“What we are today is a result of our past actions; Whatever we wish to be in our future depends on our present actions; Decide how you have to act now. We are responsible for what we are, whatever we wish ourselves to be. We have the power to make ourselves.”

What’s keeping you going right now? Is there a go-to snack food that helps keep you away from junk food? A go-to, quick dinner that keeps you out of the drive-thru? What about a song you rock on repeat? A mantra you repeat and have written down and stuck on your mirror?
