I'm not a trainer, not a nutritionist but a girl scared healthy, by an unexpected heart procedure…Fitness & eating healthy saved my life, I'm ready to see the world one city at a time! This is my personal journey.
Like most people I find myself sitting for the majority of my day-during my long commute and being at work. Being seated all day can tense up muscles. This can lead to headaches, pain, and stiffness in our bodies. It is essential to stretch!
Stretching helps prevent a multitude of injuries, stress, and strain that is caused by sitting. It’s a simple solution and can help improve your overall well being and aide in relieving soreness from working out! Make stretching a part of your daily routine
I found this on the Greatist! Six essential stretches all day desk workers should do today!
Lately, I don’t know if it’s just the weather, but I’ve been feeling a little burnt out. My workout schedule is intense, and I think my body is finally feeling its effects this week. I’ve needed an extra dose of motivation daily, and again I turned to my best friendPINTREST:)!
Here are some of my favorite images…
To sum it all up, everything good takes work, a lot of work. Find what motivates you. Find a bigger reason to DO something than NOT. Motivation is turning negatives into fuel that fires a passion deep inside of you. Motivation is something that will be the driving force behind any goals you may set for yourself. The only thing limiting you is your mindset, not your body. You’re body can be pushed beyond anything you can imagine, as long as you try. There will be days when you feel more exhausted than others, rest; then refocus on what motivated you to start. It’s something greater than anything that can stop you.
I’ve had to remind myself this week that it’s OK to feel exhausted, and to give myself a mental break from counting calories. I’m looking forward to the weekend when I can catch up on sleep,and enjoy a free meal with my sister. I can’t wait to celebrate her birthday! I also had to refocus my purpose on why I place so much importance on health and fitness. It’s beyond weightloss, but getting stronger and looking forward to a long life with my amazing husband. Look beyond the numbers, and keep motivated towards your ultimate goal.
I’m looking for great results in April! I’ll be posting my results from March soon. I have great news to share :)!
