Happy Monday!! It’s time to get motivated and stay motivated all week long! This season change has left me feeling a tad less excited about working out and super sluggish in the dark mornings. But I’m choosing to recognize these feelings and behaviors so I can take the steps to push through them.
It is so incredibly easy to come up with excuses to not stay active. Maybe you had a bad day, maybe you didn’t sleep well, maybe work is stressful or you haven’t been following a healthy diet. And if you’re not recognizing those stressors, they can take over your body and mind and the excuses can become the norm in your life.
It’s easy to become the victim. It’s easy to come up with excuses to make yourself feel better for why you missed another workout. But being the victim won’t help you move forward. It won’t help you improve. And it won’t change your life for the better. You can choose to not be the victim and do whatever you can to improve. Whether that’s walking more at the office or getting in a 15 minute workout on your lunch break. Life is all about choices and it’s about recognizing your own behaviors that hold you back from your true potential.
Don’t be the victim. Be the person you are proud to look at in the mirror.

What I Ate in a Day:
After waking up, I started my day off how I always do – with coffee. I made a hot cup of coffee with a tablespoon or so of heavy cream, some liquid stevia and collagen.
For a snack around 11am, I had a Mammoth bar.
Around 1:30pm I had a handful of these butter toffee fuel snacks.
At 2pm, I had a bowl of leftover Mexican Pumpkin Soup (recipe coming this week) with a spoonful of leftover gluten free rice pasta.
Around 3pm, I had a piece of chocolate bark (recipe coming around the holidays)
For dinner, my husband and I went to dinner to use one of our gift cards (I won’t say where because our meals kind of sucked) – I had a burger with bacon jam, arugula, 2 different kinds of cheese and wrapped in lettuce (how could that suck, right? it actually did! so weird) and a side of roasted asparagus instead of fries like I wanted!
Around 9pm, I had 2 pieces of Hu Hazelnut Butter Chocolate.
