Monday motivation

Happy Monday! Most people dread Monday, but I like to look at it as the perfect day to start fresh. Whether you've neglected your fitness routine, fallen into bad eating habits, or both - today is the day to get back on track. I get it... juggling work, family time, chores, school and social life can be tough. With events, weddings, appointments and long work hours, it can be easy for some people to put off their time to sweat. But don't let a busy schedule get in the way of regular exercise and nutritious eating. Making your body a priority is possible. Here are some tips to help you stay motivated:

  • Schedule your workout times in advance as you would any other appointment. Write it down in a calendar, journal or on your phone.
  • Keep a bag packed with a change of clothes, shoes and all other necessities so you can head straight to your workout without having to stop at home.
  • Find some fitspiration on Instagram or in magazines. Whether its pictures of healthy ideas for dinner or a fit body - visuals help!
  • Keep in touch with your fitfam! Text your trainer, friend, co-worker, or family member at some point during the day to cheer them on or to share what you've accomplished. Having support from those around you gives you a big push towards reaching your goals.

About the author

My definition of training is: “making your MIND comfortable with the fact that your BODY is going to be a little uncomfortable”. People who don’t like to exercise usually just don’t like to be uncomfortable, but getting out of our comfort zones – mentally or physically – is where positive change happens. Nobody improves while sitting under a warm fuzzy blanket. My specialty is helping people to get out of their comfort zones whether it’s for a minute or an hour. I can’t make someone want to get stronger.

Under Sandra's expert guidance, I began to understand how my body composition, hormones, emotions, stress levels, sleep, nutrition and training were interlinked, and that finding the optimum balance between these elements was the key to weight loss.
