Motivation Monday

Ok, I know you think I have lost....it's Tuesday! But I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to update you on my progress. First let me say that the past two weeks were not the best in terms of physical fitness. With Eli being sick, my dad being in town and the surgery, well something had to give and that something was my workout.

Good news though! I have a healthy little boy who is finally adjusted to sleeping through the night and thus my routine resumes to normal. On the agenda this week.

Monday: 3min run//2 min walk (4X) & Abs
Tuesday: Weights & Abs
Wednesday: 4min run 2 min walk (3x) & Abs
Thursday: Weights & Abs
Friday: 3 min walk//2 min run (3X)

I have been feeling extra motivated this week because I realized something. Although my near depression episodes lately have been induced by sleep deprivation, many could have been prevented had I been physically prepared...ie exercise. That and, I quite frankly HATE the way I look. Not in a junior high, eating disorder way, but in a lack of discipline way.

There are so few things we can control in life. However, we have 100% control of how we fuel our body through food. Unless someone has a gun to your head telling you to eat burgers, you don't have to. Ha! So, I am going to exercise that control through discipline. I'll leave you with this quote:

"Discipline is exchanging what you don't want for what you CAN have."
