Zero Motivation…but got it done.

Hi, all!

I worked Saturday night, slept about 4 hours on Sunday before getting up and getting things done, and then went to bed early after the Superbowl. Needless to say, I was EXHAUSTED when my alarm went off this morning, and I definitely hit snooze more than I’d like to admit…

So I didn’t get my workout in this morning.  Spent the whole day feeling sluggish and tired, despite my morning shakeology.  Did I let that stop me?  Almost…I had NO motivation and thought about skipping my workout.  But you know what made me come home and hit play?  My CHALLENGE group.

Yes.  It’s true.  Challenge groups give you motivation and accountability that you would never have on your own.  I knew my challengers were expecting a post from me, especially since one of my biggest rules is to NEVER miss a Monday workout!  So, I came home, and hit play.

I’m SO glad I did!  Another Hammer & Chisel workout done, and I have felt strong, energized, and accomplished since then.

I host challenge groups monthly – so if you want to make healthy lifestyle changes, improve your fitness and nutrition, please contact me!  My challenge groups provide motivation, inspiration, accountability and guidance in a JUDGEMENT-FREE zone.
