Hi everyone! Just your friendly neighbourhood blogger here with a fun idea for a month of motivation!
Time for some hard truth. I currently weigh the most I have ever weighed in my entire life. I get gassed just walking up the three flights of stairs to our apartment after walking Dusty. I am so uncomfortable in my own body – it’s ridiculous. And it’s my own fault. I choose to eat the pizza and wings and not workout nearly as much as I should… if at all.
I know it’s my fault, and I also know that I need to stop making excuses.
It’s time for change.
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to making healthier decisions – I need some motivation. I mean, sure – I’ll grudgingly choose a banana over the donut that I really want in the morning…but, come on – that’s not enough. I work better when I’m being held accountable for something, and a little motivation can go a long way!
I’ve teased about this on social media for a little while now, but it’s time to put the plan in action! It’s time for a month Of motivation! I’m going to be forming a little motivational group for the month of February, and who knows, if it goes well and you guys love it – maybe we’ll keep it going beyond that.
First, let me preface this whole thing by saying:
I AM IN NO WAY A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL
What I am though, is an eager and bubbly person who is excited to make some changes and start living a healthier, happier life. Because, in the end – that’s what matters most, right?
So, here’s the deal – every Monday morning for the month of February, I’ll be sending out a newsletter with tips and tricks from myself, and some of my more qualified friends in the health, fitness, and food world.
Whether you workout at home or in the gym – I’ll be sharing some tips from my ridiculously fit and healthy and beautiful friend Mia of Body Morphology.
Need a friendly reminder to drink that water? Need a gentle push to put down the candy bar and pick up that apple? I got you covered.
Stuck in a rut of bad food meal after meal? Crunched for time when making dinner so relying on the drive-thru far too often? Not for long!
Did you know that ginger may help reduce muscle pain and soreness? Did you know that reducing sugar can create a stable mood and energy levels? Get ready for more valuable info like this!
It’s ok to not always be ok, you know. Sometimes we all need a gentle reminder that we’re not alone in this crazy thing called life. I want to help with that.
good morning, this message is for those who feel alone and have that voice inside their head telling them things they don’t need to hear…remember – this too shall pass and know that you are stronger than the boogeyman in your head wants you to believe…ok, love you – bye.
