Motivational Monday!

12 Nov

It’s a new week! Can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here? I swear this year has been flying…

Since it’s the end of the semester, stress is starting to set in. So this quote really stuck with me:

How you handle everything is your choice. Always. You can stress out, freak out, be miserable…or be motivated and take everything in stride. I have a lot of assignments and projects coming up, and when I start to think about them, it stresses me out a bit. But my choice will be to make a timeline tomorrow, map everything out, and be motivated to finish out the semester strong. I can do this!

Same with my running and working out. I haven’t strength trained in two weeks. UGH. I’ve just been busy and with the hurricane, my gym didn’t even open until a few days ago. Today, I will go back. I will be motivated and do the best that I can. Same with my eating. I made Blonde Ponytail’s no-bake peanut butter protein bars yesterday as a snack for this week. I brought healthy snacks and salad ingredients. I can complain about how I haven’t been losing body fat, or I can do something about it…which is what I am choosing!

What will your choice be this week?
