Motivation Monday


elevator-to-success1

There is no Easy Button to achieve success.  You have to climb, and work for it.  And then when you get to the top you can look back on where you came from and feel that surge of accomplishment and pride.

 

How many floors are you climbing today?

This is a hard TBT, but I am sharing this one again as reminder that we all start somewhere!  This was taken about a year ago, I think I was 30 days postpartum.

I am now a year PP and don’t look much different.  I am starting to embrace that “mommy-body” rather than hating it.  And I am working on changing it rather than accepting it.

scale

I saw this on Pinterest yesterday, and it really spoke to me.  I’ve been checking in on the scale and it is sadly going the exact opposite way that I want it to.  So I made a decision…

I am not getting back on it for 60 days.

It makes me sad when I do, and then I just beat myself up.  So the scale and I are going to take some time apart.  I want to re-focus my energy on other things, and I am not going to let it control my feelings anymore.

Happy Monday!

Workout Wednesday – Get ready to sweat!


I am always looking for new ways to sweat.  I’ve been on the bench as far as running goes the last few weeks, but I am ready to get back to it.  So I have been focusing on getting strong and building some muscle to help aid my recovery.

Today, Monday is not going to suck.  I am going to make this Monday my b!tch and get stuff done.  I have a long task list and I am not going to be until it gets done.

I am going to run a 5k today for my virtual Halloween Hobble, knock out that task list, meet with my trainer, and spend the day with my little.  Because seriously…

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at a Corn Maze and Fall Festival.  We had so much fun, and it was awesome being able to spend some family time with #Babylove and Run This Dad.

What are you doing today?
