Happy Saturday! I hope today is a beautiful adventure that begins with the faith that the 1st step into your next adventure will bring your dreams to life.
This is the time of year where we began to look at the goals we set at the new year and feel like we have hit a plateau, are not were we thought we would be or maybe we haven’t even started.
We push for perfection and in doing that, we procrastinate even starting. We judge the harvest we are reaping as not “good enough” or because it is just “good enough” it is not enough.
So we keep putting off our dreams, set our goals aside for another day.
Today, let’s recognize that the seeds we take the time to plant matter. Good enough and done is better than waiting for perfection.
I have really struggled with my focus lately and have been setting my goals and dreams aside, as I am struggling to get balance in my life.
So, today I will start to plant the seeds again. Meditate on my dreams, show gratitude for all I am blessed with and do the work, even if it is not perfect. Good enough can become excellent. Nothing remains nothing.
Wishing you a beautiful day full of new seeds to plant and a harvest full of creative, positive energy to propel your dreams forward.
I have been a little quiet on the blog this week. Still learning to juggle my fitness schedule, the new kid classes, my volunteer work, house, family, choreography and oh yeah, sleep. The problem is I am so blessed with so many things I want to do, it is hard to focus and narrow down what is important in that moment. So I have slowed down to speed up. A saying my husband and I tell our kids a lot.
I started blogging to be able to write and share and inspire others. I am so grateful for all the positive feed back. Looking over my posts, while I happy with my content, it is lacking in the writing dept. No worries, fun coffee memes, inspiration, move of the day, food will stay but more posts about me and my life will be added as well, starting with today’s Halloween recap. So let’s dig in.
It has been a super fun week of Halloween inspired fitness classes, beginning with my Special Needs Zumba class Monday. They came in costume, we did some fun Halloween favorites in class like I’m Your Boogie Man and Thriller. The Thriller train did not end there. It pulled into Zumba Tues, Zumba Gold Wed, Special Halloween Zumba class Wed night and made its last drop off at Cardio Drumming Thur morning. There have many costumes this week, Black and Orange, I wore my Awesome Grandma shirt. Been Wonder Woman. Wrapped up with TuTus and tiaras at Barre Fit. By Halloween I was costumed out and passed out candy in pajamas. Overall a super fun week full of laughs and lots of smiles.
A Halloween post would not be complete without a picture of my granddaughter on her second Halloween being her adorable self out tricking or treating for the 1st time. Seriously the cutest flamingo I have ever seen.
I hope you had an amazing week and made some memories with family and friends.
Please share how your week went.
Happy Monday! This week out Move Of the Day will focus on different ways to use a plyo box. You can always use a step, bench, whatever you have handy. You can adjust the intensity of this move for your fitness level and goals
Move of the Day is a plank to ankle reach to mountain climber. Need a modification? Use a chair to hold the plank (with hands on chair) reach for your calf, then hold one foot off floor, then the other. Video on Instagram
Happy Tuesday! Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. Time to get back to working on those goals. #moveoftheday is a way to level up your push-ups. Slam ball to split push-up. To modify, squat with ball then step back into a plank.
Today Move Of The Day: Lunge with a Bicep Curl to a Plank Jack. To modify you can start with no weight and then start with a plank, then add taps to the side to build up to the jack. Need to make it harder, up your weight, add extra jacks in the plank.
Today’s #motivationmonday quote maybe alittle late but I think we all can relate to this in some small (or large) way. Maybe you are going after a new goal or have hit a plateau in a current goal. Maybe there is a goal you have been meaning to start working towards. What if we let go of self-doubt and self-judgement? What if we could express gratitude for the desire to get started and keep going? How much more can we enjoy the journey and see the lessons we are learning along the way if we set down the shadow of self-doubt?
Getting back into my work routine, loved all my classes this week. Had a relaxing 4th with family and friends. Now, #moveoftheday is back! Today, Tricep Dip to Crab Touch. Make sure fingers are pointing towards you, bend at the elbows and straighten arms to really target your triceps, then reach opposite hand to heel. Modification, just lift one leg at a time and leave both hand on the floor.
