Let's learn from the arrow and the science from the arrow. When things do not go our way, find a way to find the positive.
What motivates you? What drives you to MOVE? Whatever is getting you to jump out of bed every morning to complete that workout, that is your motivation. It is obviously different for everyone. So what is it for you? I refer to this as your "Why".
How many of think you are the next Beyoncé, Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias or Julianne Hough? No? Well, maybe that doesn't stop you from belting out "Single Ladies" in the shower or doing the Salsa in your bedroom on Latin night on DWTS. It's the sheer enjoyment of a pastime that you love. I remember my sister singing when I was younger. She has a beautiful voice. Many people told her as such. Did she boast of her talent? Not at all, but I am certain that she was confident in her skill. If memory serves, she was in competition choir for a few years. Her confidence was silent... Until it came time to sing.
Stress... It is EVERYWHERE! It is in our jobs, our schools and definitely on our roadways... Can I get an AMEN? My poor baby boy was in tears last night as we were going through his homework because he could not remember what needed to be turned in and what was work that needed to be done at school. That's when I knew it had been way too long since our last meditation session. Yes... My ten-year old meditates. He has actually been doing it for over a year.
If you are not an early riser, we will be patient as we get into this new routine together. With all healthy habits, consistency is key. We can do this together! Let's rise and grind! Yes or yes?
Ghouls, goblins, Slender Man.... October is when are the scary stuff comes out; so it is the perfect time to pull out the BURPEES! What better time to face your fears? The burpee, like the push up, is a full body workout. However, after a few sets, your legs should feel a little bit like lead! With each rep, you will work your arms, chest, quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings and abs. Would you rather face a clown in a dark alley or 25 sets of burpees?
