Weekly Recap #11 & #12

We are almost halfway through winter and sometimes the cold or sickness (especially that my 3 bring home) can be tough but being motivated helps!  Also, rolling around in fake grass is nice 😉  FullSizeRender-1.jpg

I often get messages about how I stay motivated so I came up with my top 6 reasons that keep me motivated:

  1. An upcoming race- especially a big one that you are traveling for!
  2. To feel my best- days when I run/ workout I am happier and a lot more patient with everyone. 🙂
  3. To be stronger and better- I always want to keep improving to be the best version of myself.
  4. To eat healthier- I always make better food choices when I workout!  I think my body craves healthy foods and vitamins!  Sometimes I workout so hard that I don’t want anything bad going into my body.
  5. My daily “me time”- It is my only time that I really have alone and I don’t feel guilty about it!  I may not have time to go shopping or even doing my hair but at the end of the day those things don’t make me happy like working out!
  6. Having a group that is doing similar workouts and similar goals- I check in each day with my group and we share motivation and inspiration!  FullSizeRender.jpg
