Suck it up Cupcake, 1st edition
Monday is my favorite day of the week. I’m pretty sure a lot of you might disagree. It’s cool, we can still be friends.
For me, Monday mean’s I get a fresh start to a new week. When I’m training for a half marathon, it’s the day I usually choose to do my long run on.
I start the week by surfing the net or reading a few of my favorite blogs for recipe inspiration. Then I’ll hit up the grocery store and come home to do a little prep work in the kitchen.
Lately I’ve been choosing a new to me grain to add to stir fry’s & salads. I just add 1 cup grain & 2 cups water to my rice cooker.
I crave simplicity. And motivation. So I wanted to start a series on here that helps motivate all of us to sweat once a day and/or make 1 small, healthier change a weekly goal. Making simple swaps and changes like choosing brown rice over white add up.
I’m a big advocate of making health & fitness a lifestyle. If your not happy with yourself or don’t like something, then change it. I also believe in setting attainable goals. I fall into the all or nothing mentality far too often, maybe you might too? This will help keep my goals in prospective.
I don’t have the patience for crybabies who choose to do nothing, and expect everything to magically change.
Hence, the series name. 🙂
While I tend to come up with great ideas and set huge goals, I find I lack the consistency to give it my all. I think others might too. This is just as important as finding our focus and motivation to a well balanced lifestyle.
So here’s to a fresh start!! Whether your running for the first time, swapping original for low fat or just going for an evening walk.
My goals for this week are to run 3 times and drink more water.
