This time of the year, it is easy to fall off track. There are holiday parties, holiday baking, pumpkin spice everything. Don’t let one day make you throw in the towel and wait for the “new year” to take care of your health. Work harder, eat cleaner, and enjoy the small indulgences of the season.
Inspired by a member of my 6:15am Monday tribe who gave me a compliment that made my day ” Your energy is infectious and so positive, so needed for a 6am workout.”
Your energy and attitude not only affects those around you, but the results you will get. Do you face your workout, eating plan, daily errands with dread or do you go in excited ready to see change, reach your goals and find a sense of achievement? You get to choose. Smile during your workout, compliment someone’s form or cute workout shoes, be excited to try a new recipe, expect success in your daily tasks.
Take the 30 seconds to brighten someone’s day, so they are built with positive energy to pass on to another.
We remember all those who sacrificed their lives, their loved ones, their friends, their co-workers. We pray for all those that showed compassion, risked their lives or just reached out a hand in comfort. So much was lost, so much sadness, fear and uncertainty. Yet we did come together as a nation and that opportunity is available to us everyday, in every situation. Together we are stronger. Thank you to all our military service members, fire fighters, police officers, rescue workers, EMTs, all those that choose to serve no matter the cost. We promised the families that suffered such a devastating loss that we would never forget. We Remember.
Attorney Generals from the following states signed and sent a letter threatening to sue if the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) was not dismantled by the Federal Government: Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Idaho (Idaho’s Governor also signed it.) That could have resulted in an immediate end to the program making people currently working and going to school under work permits they paid for and renew every 2 years, invalid.

I am loving teaching at 6:15am on Mondays! It makes me feel like I am starting the week strong and focused! I love the dedication of the ladies that get up early, before their kids, spouses, jobs, life to make their health and fitness a priority. Taking the time to get stronger mentally and physically to give their best to the things they love.
Find your tribe, build each other up, find your success.
