Well I’m all kinds of excited today because I’m off to San Jose to stop by the Mind Pump studio to record a podcast with Sal, Adam and Justin! If you haven’t listened to the Mind Pump Podcast yet, you absolutely should! If you’re reading this post, you’re obviously into fitness in some way and Mind Pump is ALL about that fitness life. And fitness of all kinds. From food to different workouts to supplements and then everything in between. I’ve been listening to them for months now and I seriously learn something new every podcast! Pretty rad!
Since the holiday season is creeping up fast, I’ve been absolutely swamped with getting work done. I swear that time just continues to go by faster and faster with each day. And because of that, it’s pretty freaking hard to get a workout in. Especially when travel is involved. And because of this, I’ve had to turn to early mornings to get my workout done. And I am NOT an early morning worker-outer. Not one bit. I wake up every day before 6am and I’m hyper the moment I put my feet on the floor, but that does not mean that I’m fully prepared to raise my heart rate above 60 beats per minute. BUT, if getting my workout in that day means putting on deodorant before the sun has even come up, I’m gonna do it. I’m not going to like it and I’m going to pout to myself the entire hour of class, but I’m still going to do it. Because I want results. I want to feel my best, look my best, be my best. And to be all those things, I have to stick to my physical activity and some sort of routine.
Life throws you curve balls, it gets complicated and busy, but if you are willing to find ways around it, you can conquer it! I hate working out in the morning because it sucks ass, but I’m crawling my way to the car right now so I can get a workout in before I travel for the day. It won’t be my best workout and I’ll hate every minute of it, but I’m still doing it. And that’s all that matters in the end.
Go get your workouts in this week. No excuses. You got this!
Oh yeah!! Don’t forget – you have only TWO MORE DAYS to order your own pair of PaleOMG x Four Athletics, Floral Print, High Waist, 7/8 leggings! Then after Tuesday night, they are gone!! So excited for you guys to finally get your hands on them!
