Motivation Monday’s!!!

So I saw this on pintrest and it spoke to me :) It was so weird because I’ve developed my own personal workout rules that I follow and it was pretty much similar to this. I’ve always looked at Monday’s to be a jumpoff day to start my workout, I never went more than 2 days straight without working out (hey, things happen, you get cramps, you come home late, whatever,that’s life)  and I try to workout at lease 4 days a week. Mine’s fit my mindset and what I knew I was capable of. Despite the slight differences it made me realize that setting your own rules is actually a helpful motivational tool. 
   If you’re already into a consistent routine you’ve probably have your workout ritual that’s conducive to your lifestyle. But if you’re a newbee remember it’s no rule too crazy or ridiculously perfect. You may have a different workout day to kick off your week etc. just make sure they’re tailor made for you and most importantly that you follow them. Sometimes, it’s your own little rules you set for yourself that keeps you accountable to no one but yourself. That’s what gets you out of bed and off the couch and making that dream of yours happen. It’s all on you. 
   I follow my rules to the T. Since I’ve swallowed that jagged little pill called “This Is A Lifestyle Change, And Has To Be Incorporated Into Your Everyday Life”, yea after that pill digested I use them to get me threw every week. I don’t miss a Monday and so what if I do, I start on Tuesday ** Kenye shrug**. So what if I only get in 3 days this week. The next week I’ll try to reach my goal. My rules keeps me focused and in line. 
I hope this was the motivation someone needed today :)

Jogging. Burns hella calories, clears your head, and releases endorphins. 

I didn’t just wake up one day and say hey I’m going to go jogging. I woke up saying I didn’t want to be the mom that had her second baby and let herself go. So I started power walking. It was free and convenient. The more I did it, the faster I could walk. Pretty soon the fastest walking pace wasn’t fast enough, so I started trotting (like half power walking half slight jogging). I do so much and go back into power walking. The more I did that combination I noticed I’d trot more than walk. My body slowly, but gradually, adapted to the slight changes. I guess you can say jogging snuck up on me. It became what I do.

I had a conversation yesterday with a women who was telling me about a new gym she’d joined. It had all the bells and whistles for the low, low price of $33 a month. I don’t knock gyms, use to belong to one myself. In my journey I’ve learned that if you really are serious about losing weight it can be done for the low, at home.I invested in a yoga mat, a weight ball, a jump rope, and some hand weights. Weight loss is a mindset, a lifestyle. It doesn’t matter where you are, its what you do where you’re  at.

So far, this is my greatest accomplishment. After packing on a few pounds right BEFORE the summer I went to work. I love jogging but I needed to do more. I created my own HIIT Workout, 10 min. ab routine and found some arm exercises with my 5lbs weights. Next challenge: eating clean!
