Good morning and happy Monday!

I just wanted to share this photo with you because it is so true. Most times we build our own walls, and they aren’t meant to be there. Keep working hard- you CAN accomplish you goals with positivity and strength!

Motivational Monday

This quote is one of my favorites- because it couldn’t be more true.

Don’t some of the best parts of life happen when we are uncomfortable? Pushing outside that comfort zone is where we can find some of our true character, find out what we are made of! I feel like we are all usually much stronger than we really think. 

Personally I’ve really gotten into heavier weight lifting and flexible dieting. WOW- it’s a whole new world and it has been fun to see my progress so far. I’m power lifting and seeing some great weight increases. I’m surprised at how strong I actually am! :-) 

Happy Monday! Have a great week! :-)

  • When’s the last time you moved out of your comfort zone?

Good morning everyone! I don’t know about you- but this is how I’m feeling this Monday morning haha! (or to be honest- MOST mornings :-) )

But hey- it’s a brand new week and I’m ready to go. My husband and I have been working out hard as of lately- we seem to be having a little competition going with ourselves on who can be fittest by summer. 😉 just kidding- but we have been eating well, working out hard, and loving to see our progress! 

Our newest workouts have included a lot of olympic lifting and I’ve really been lifting some heavy weights. I’ve never consistently done heavy lifting, I would do it here and there, but now that I”ve been doing it for the past few weeks- I have been happily surprised by myself! It’s been making me feel great and I’m really feeling those muscles bro

This week, we are talking about Spring Time!

Oh spring, I’m ready for you!

This winter seems to be long and brutal and I’m ready for some sunshine and warm weather. Since I’ve moved to the eastern shore, getting to the point where you can walk the boardwalk comfortably or get on the beach is like the best time in the world! And trust me- everyone else feels that way too!

Things I’m Looking Forward to in Spring:

  • Running outside comfortably in a tank top and shorts. My favorite!
  • Boardwalk/beach time, of course. What a pretty sight!

  • Not wearing a coat outside. For some reason walking outside and it just being warm is a happy thought!
  • Ice cream/froyo dates!

Spring means one step closer to SUMMER and being at the beach all day! Basically any activity I can do outside in good weather is fine by me! Kayaking being a favorite of mine!

We have really crazy work schedules, now week is EVER the same- so our times really this, but I gave ranges of what I do each week. I swear one day I’ll have a normal schedule. Maybe. 

7-8ish am-Generally my husband and I workout in the morning before we go to work. It’s basically the only time we have to do so. It’s then or never pretty much!

8:00am- eat breakfast! (YAY!) get ready for work, get to work and do my projects for the day.

1:30pm- finally get to eat lunch! I feel like I wait forever to eat my lunch every day (yes I know I have a problem lol!)

~4:00- teach a fitness class to co workers or leave my first job, relax for an hour or two before I get to my next one (working at a gym). This is a class we did the other day!

5:30 pm cook dinner OR get to 2nd job…work, obviously.

11:00pm is bedtime if I work at night OR i try to get to bed much sooner. I hate working so late because I love to be in bed early to relax or read, but it is what it is right now. 

That’s about it during the work week. We sort of run around all crazy but we get a little relaxation on the weekends. 

  • What does a day in YOUR life look like? What is your favorite time of day? Mine might be lunch time, haha!
