    Health Hack: What To Do When You Only Have A Few Minutes To Get Fit.

    I have to start by saying that I’ve been there. Overworked. Tired. Maybe my period was coming. Whatever it was, I just didn’t have the time nor the energy to fit in an hour or more at the gym, but I knew I had to do something (anything) to make sure I kept moving toward my fitness goals. Here is what you need to do when you only have a few minutes a day, and still want to get in a full-body workout.

    Why settle?

      Why do we feel as adults (supposedly older and wiser) that we need to settle? As kids and teens we certainly never did. But somehow now as adults, it’s expected.

Since I’m constantly reevaluating and updating my own personal short-term and long-term goals, it’s also a question I ask myself constantly.

    What messages are you telling yourself?

    Happy Motivation Monday! Do you ever get frustrated with not seeing results fast enough? Or wonder why things always seem to fall apart, even before it got off the ground? Not too many of us can escape something bad messing up our day every now and then, but it’s how we react to it that determines the ultimate outcome. Sometimes the timing isn’t right, but more often that not, life is the story you’re telling yourself it is.  This week ask yourself, are your goals productive or destructive?
