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 breakfast, I tossed arugula in olive oil and lemon juice, microwaved some fingerling potatoes then smashed and cooked in 4th & Heart Ghee and cooked up some ButcherBox breakfast sausage.

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.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I’m hanging out for this Mexican Pumpkin Soup recipe! I think it’s the cooler weather. Loving arugula at the moment and have been eating it almost daily with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and roasted veggies. Like you, it’s the only salad green I enjoy.

  2. Hate when restaurants mess up a good thing, so annoying! I love that reminder about not being a victim. It’s so much easier to blame external circumstances for not taking care of yourself. I 100% believe that taking care of yourself is a full-time job and you have to constantly advocate for yourself. It’s usually not easy but always worth it!

  3. Thanks for the motivation today. I had been slacking that led to more slacking to the point I’m disgusted with myself and tried of it. So I started with a simple goal, of just hitting my step goal every single day on my fitbit. Starting small, but getting back on track, and I’ll add more and more into that. I also signed up for Joy & Claire’s Mindful Body Challenge and soooo excited. I need to get my mind in a better place!

  4. ugh! i gotta eat better and cleaner! thanks for continuing to post this content because one day hopefully it will motivate me to get my sht together and stop eating cookies and fries and chocolate and cakes and bread! enough of the madness! i work out like mad but it’s obvious that what i’m inhaling matters most …. gotta get on it!!

    maybe today is the day i get my arse in gear and stop with the grilled cheese and fries lunch combo???

    1. hahahaha as AMAZING as grilled cheese and fries taste, it’s definitely not your best option haha! i’ve definitely been there, but it’s amazing how much energy you have and how much better you feel when you’re steering clear of those foods! glad i could help with a little motivation! thank you for supporting the blog!

      1. I channeled my inner-Juli and got grilled chicken and Escarole+white beans for lunch! I know beans are paleo but it was already in it (plus i liked the combo). I still think my portions are WAY off and the sugar I inhale on a daily basis is no good.

        Do you ever get cravings in your mouth … like you need something flavorful but you’re not really hungry? What do you do during those moments?

  5. I’ve heard you mention collagen on your podcast a couple of times and am realllly interested in adding it into my diet. Does it taste like anything in your coffee? I’m a coffee & heavy cream gal myself but if it’s gritty or flavoured it freaks me out. Thanks!

  6. I’m taking orange theory class for first time Wednesday based on your inspiration. Recently on vacation and walked over 8 miles even though I’m not in best shape. 5 miles two days later. Realized I can walk my dogs a mile every day and be happy or strive to be my best and still be happy but be my best. Excited to try the class!

  7. Hi Juli! I’m one of your regular podcast listeners but I’m trying to support you and other bloggers on their blogs more. So here is me fulfilling that goal!

    I loved the podcast episode with Sal Di Stefano! I agree with about 95% of the stuff he says which is nice because I’m used to hearing bs from fitness people, but from what I’ve gathered he also feels that misinformation is rampant in the fitness industry. It exists in the nutrition world too.

    Thanks for putting out the content and keepin’ it fresh with food, fitness, fashion, and Jackson! Okay, Bye!

  8. Another awesome post… Extremely motivating!! Who doesn’t give excuses 😉 And so strong and stable in that overhead squat Juli!!

  9. So excited for this Mexican soup!! I have a random question for you! I’ve just recently moved to an actual crossfit gym from a “crossfit-style” gym that didn’t use barbells in their metcons. Now that I’m using heavier weights with barbells, I am bruising so badly everywhere! My shoulders/collar bones are always bruised from front racking, and we did 1RM cleans yesterday and I have super bad bruises on my legs below the hip crease 🙁 I know I bruise easily, but any tips to maybe minimize this in the future? Thanks!

    1. as far as I know, it just has to do with better form. if i’m bruising on my legs or collarbones, it’s usually due to the fact that i’m not getting my elbows high in the rack position quickly enough and if it’s on the legs, i’m not using my shrug enough and relying too much on my legs for a hip thrust. i don’t know if that’s spot on but that’s what i’ve noticed for myself.

  10. Ugh i totally want to fucking be you!! Honestly you are my inspiration. I have had the worst sinus infection since yesterday so 2 days off from the gym is killing me. So for now, i will drink my coffee and live vicariously through you. Always my motivation!
