Goooooood morning!! So here’s the thing…I’m not feeling incredibly motivated this Monday. I had an insanely stressful Sunday which meant I didn’t get any work done in the afternoon which means I’m totally behind today. I have blog posts to finish, photos to edit, recipes to write up, grocery shopping to do, cooking to start, cleaning the house to get done…then I have cooking videos tomorrow. I absolutely love doing these cooking videos but MAN, are they a lot of work. I hope you guys love them so they are worth it!
But with all that being said…I’m still going to get a workout in. That’s one hour of my day that I won’t be looking at my phone, I won’t be thinking about business and I’ll simply have a clear mind while I work for an hour at changes and improving my body and mind. It’s easy on days like this to come up with excuses and to say I can’t fit it in, but for me, I will stay up one extra hour if that means I can have inner peace for one hour in my day.
Workouts don’t always fit into my schedule, but I almost always find time to fit them in. Because I know I will be a happier person after that 1 hour. So it’s time to get after. Time to work my butt off so I can have that one hour just for me! And you should do the same for yourself!

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 cooked up a Teton Waters jalapeño brat, 1 sweet plantains, and arugula I tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, and S&P.
For lunch, I had a meal at Just Be Kitchen. I ordered the burger (which comes with a paleo bun) and an arugula salad on the side. And I also had a caramel sea salt butter coffee (so insanely good!) with my meal.
Later in the afternoon, I had some Siete Foods tortilla chips while I made dinner. For dinner, I made taco meat with ground beef, then made tacos with Sir Kensington’s chipotle mayo, and Siete Foods tortilla. I made 1 taco then had a taco salad afterwards.
