Rise and Grind!


Thank God Its Monday and its the perfect time to shake off the weekend and get back to the grind of meetings and workouts.  I know I was happy during my drive to work today. I visualized everything running smoothly and on schedule (and so far so good) and was already excited about jammin' out and sweating during this evening's workout because my body craves sweat! Over the weekend, I did a brisk Sunday morning run and a quick HIIT Friday nite, but I'm ready to go all in this week and earn some serious soreness.

Exercise helps clear my mind and keeps me grounded and if I didn't workout, I'd probably stress out. I love the grind. Last week I walked into the gym and Kevin at the counter said, "Wow, you're motivated. You're in here everyday". I thought, "Heck yeah, I'm here because I love it. What the heck else would I be doin?".

And I thought about it again,

"How do I make it to the gym day in and day out?"

There are two parts to this answer.

1. I made a promise to myself to get into the best shape of my life and make fitness a priority

2. I plan my workouts, visualize myself doing them, and bring my gear with me.

That's it. Now all I have to do is actually show up, warm up, and grind through the rest. The best part, I treat myself to a huge meal afterwards and a shower never felt so good than after a long day and a hard workout. :)

So from here on its all 1 hour workouts, Monday through Friday. Woo hoo! So lets start off this week strong, with our goals in sight, a solid plan, and some hustle!! Lets get to work!
