What do YOU VALUE?

I love Eric Thomas! He is such a great speaker and inspirational. I had to share with you the quote that was sent to bless my email this morning. It woke something up on the inside of me, and I hope it does the same for you! 

Your Values

There are those of you who say,

I want to be a millionaire!
I want to be the best at this company!

But your value system says,
You believe in sleep,
More than you believe in grinding.

Your value system says, 
You are a consumer,
And not a producer.

You’re spending more money than you’re making.
Why?
Because you’re a consumer,

You’re reading all the books,
You’re saying everything the books are saying,
But those books are not in alignment with your values.

If you’re going to go to the next level,
Your values are going to have to change.
Eric Thomas ~

A Few Ticks & Tricks

If you are anything like me, I used to hate working out! However, after several months, working out has become a part of my daily routine. I not only workout, but I do my best to eat right. Now, I do fall short some days, but that is okay. I do better the next day. I am going to outline my workout routine below and offer some suggestions on how to maximize your workout.

*Please note, I am not a personal trainer and what works for me, may not work for you.

My Workout Schedule:

  • Monday: 45minutes-1 hour cardio
  • Tuesday: 45 minutes of cardio, abs, and arms
  • Wednesday: 15 minutes of cardio, legs, and abs
  • Thursday: Rest day
  • Friday: All body workout
  • Saturday: Rest Day (depending on how my body feels)
  • Sunday: Rest Day

Tip 1: While at the gym, I do an incline of 5-9 (depending on the machine) to burn more calories. 

I have posted a few pictures below to show you a demonstration of what kind of ab and leg workouts I do.

Tip 2: Make sure you breathe when you are doing these exercises.

I’ll have more pictures and videos of my workout routines, and what I eat on the daily.

Tip 3: You can add weights to your ankles to challenge yourself as well.

Motivational Monday

It’s Monday again!

Which is a great way to start your week of the right way. Whatever happened last week…FORGET ABOUT IT!

Do not let what happened last week or even yesterday interfere with today. Let today be the day you start fresh. Let today be the day you rock out your goals. Let today be the day you say YOU CAN AND YOU WILL!

Remember, it is not about what you did not do. It is about what you did do when things did not go as you planned. It’s about picking yourself up and dusting off your shoulders; get back to it.

Giving up or quitting should never be an option! I challenge you this week to do something you did not do last week to achieve your goal(s). If you failed to get up early…get up early tomorrow. Set your alarm clock so you do. If you failed to reach your sale goals last week…put in double the effort so you do this week. If you did not go to the gym…start working out at home this week. If you did not take time out to work on that story….carve out time in your planner to do so.

This week is all about recognizing where you could’ve done more, and maximizing your time this week. It’s about moving forward. So, I challenge you to move forward and rock out your goals!

Happy Monday!!!

Fall Forward 

I wanted to do things differently today for Motivational Monday. Instead of me posting during the day, I wanted to post tonight. I figured it would be a great way for you to end your day!

I love Denzel Washington! He is very inspirational and his words of encouragement always find a way to get me together! 

I decided to share some inspiration from him with you today! Check it out below and let me know what you think. 

Fall forward.

Here’s what I mean: 

Reggie Jackson struck out 2,600 times in his career.

The most in the history of baseball. 

But you don’t hear about the strikeouts. 
People remember the home runs.

Fall forward.
Thomas Edison conducted 1,000 failed experiments. 
Did you know that? 

I didn’t know that,

Because #1,001 was the light bulb.

Fall forward.
Every failed experiment,
Is one step closer to success. 

You’ve got to take risks.
~ Denzel Washington ~

Happy Monday!!!
