Motivation Monday

Another crazy week in the books! This was Asher Wade’s first, full week of preschool and it has taken the full week to finally get in a groove.  For whatever reason, I also felt really unmotivated this week, so I mixed in more Orangetheory than usual.  That always gets me out of my rut since the workout is always different and I have a coach (screaming in my ear) motivating me;)

 Monday 8/8: Randomly went to an early morning Orangetheory Fitness class.  I am NOT an early morning workout person, so this was nothing short of miracle.  Honestly though, once I got there and got moving, it wasn’t half bad.

Tuesday 8/9: 15 minutes on the treadmill (6.0 mph) and a 45 minute “Tight N’ Tone” class (LOTS of push-ups, squats and dead lifts, plus some upper body exercises using free weights and core work)

Wednesday 8/10: REALLY didn’t want to do anything today, but I headed outside and walked for 30 minutes and then followed up with 30 minutes of yoga

Thursday 8/11: Hair appointment at lunch today, so I went down after work and ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes

Friday 8/12: Random again, but did another Orangetheory Fitness session at lunch

Saturday 8/13: 1 hour walk around the neighborhood, with some hill intervals thrown in

Sunday 8/14: Yet another 60 minute Orangetheory Fitness session. Who am I this week?!  I’ll tell you…the girl walking around like a duck because my legs are so flippin’ sore from the amount of squats I’ve done this week.

 Also wanted to share some of my favorite health/nutrition fitness social media accounts. I love following people that are positive and inspirational, but also offer up some good tips, whether they be focused on nutrition, exercise, recipes, body image, or a combination of all of those.  I’ve included their Instagram handlers, although most of them also have blogs, and you can easily find the links by clicking on their Instagram profile.
