120lb Journey – Monday Motivation

What are your thoughts about Monday?  Do you love the first day of the week?  the day we start sigh about because of the long week ahead?  Or do you loathe the very thought of being at the beginning of the week?

new week

On a personal level I love it!! On a professional basis, not so much.  You see this is the day I’ve noticed a lot of my clients encounter speed bumps in their fitness goals or they go completely off track and begin the mental battle of gearing up for next week as new ‘do-over’.

What ever the reason, it’s always a fun challenge to help my friends over the mental block that this day presents for them.

So lets work on something together…balance.  Balance in our fitness, balance in our nutrition, balance in our rest and recovery and balance in our lives.  You body is an amazing machine that loves being in balance.  Poor food choices, lack of exercise and sleep, stress all cause a loss of balance that opens the door to free radicals, molecular oxidation and immune deficiency.  These are pathways to a myriad of disease being allowed to creep in and take hold of us.

Eat the right foods.  Exercise sensibly and with focus. Sleep, rest and relax.  Set goals and stick to them.  Re-set your goals when you find achieving them has become too easy or mundane.

it takes weeks

I’m not foolish enough to believe that this type of lifestyle will ward off all disease, but it will certainly give you a much better chance of it.

So on this Monday, when you think you might want to shrug off your exercise, or grab that little something that has no nutritional value for a snack or stay up late to watch television….think about everything you have to live for.  Think about your goals and how proud you will be reaching them.  Think about whom you will celebrate your achievements with.
