Seriously, sweat is going everywhere. Every few minutes I am needing to swipe sweat from my eyes so that I can see. It is crazy. I even had to use the bottom of my shirt just to wipe my face off...a fee different times :-)
.
It is crazy how much you can sweat when you are putting your all into the workout. .
Talk about a great way to start my Sunday off and my day off is only 2 days away.

Wow...Just Wow! The past few weeks that I have been here, I have been in countless Workweek Hustles and most of those weeks I miss 1st place by a little or a lot. It just depends. But I noticed that what helped me was that I stayed somewhat active on my day off. In the end...it is the little things that make the difference. Every time I have a task to complete, I will choose to walk unless it is just not possible. My daily workouts get me more steps. I will choose the bathroom that is just a little farther to get a few more steps. Yes, if it was a heavy step day, my feet will hurt, which then tells me that I did a lot of steps.
.
I am always up for more challenges and I always accept an invite. Moreover, I am also looking for more fitbit friends. Who doesn't like some healthy competition and it is a great way helping eachother move a little more. .
Go get a few more steps...you are worth it :-)

It doesnt matter where you so it, it doesnt matter who is around, not even what time of day it is. All that matters isnthat you push play. Nine times out of ten, pushing play is the hardest thing to do.
.
I didn't let anything stop me. Not my sore body or even my sore heart. I know that my aunt would want me to keep going. She was always a fighter a d so am I. .
It is day 1 of week 4. Wow where did the time go? But then where did the weight go too...lol I am seeing progress everyday. I cant wait to see what my progress is at the end of this. Its going to be amazing, I can just feel it πŸ˜πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

I just spent the last 45 minutes talking to my mom on the phone and boy I needed that. It started out with tears but by the end we were both laughing and it felt great. .
I even got to hear my dog in the background being his normal self, honking and all.
.
Deployments are hard but it gets better when you have a great support system.

Today went from a good day to not so great. During my lunch, while looking through FB catching up with my friends and family, I found a post that punched me square in the stomach and hit my heart pretty good. I found out that my aunt passed away yesterday. Thankfully my boss let me go home for the rest of the day as I just cant stop crying. .
She had been bravely been fighting cancer for a while. She was an amazing woman, mother, wife, aunt, friend and just simply amazing all around. She will be missed tremendously. We unfortunately did not keep in touch as much as I would have liked but distance can sometimes make it difficult to keep in touch. .
My thoughts and love go out to my uncle and cousins. I love you guys.

Time for a break. Well lunch time. Enjoying some pretty good pizza, spaghetti, meatballs and some fresh bell peppers. Gets me refueled for the rest of the day and takes me away from the evil sun for a short time.
Its important to take breaks and stay fueled and hydrated.
What are your choices for refueling your body during a long day at work?

My legs are shaking.
My arms are shaking.
My abs are sore.
.
Today was Dynamic Strength. It consistented a lot of pushups, and I mean a lot and in different forms.
.
It also included lots of isolation balancing movements. .
Which used the core a lot to help with the balancing. .
Case in point why I am shaking. .
But what matters is I didnt hit the snooze button and I pushed play. .
Would you have done the same thing?

Pre-workout down. I tried something new by mixing it in the bottle the night before and setting it by my bedside. .
1, it was right there when I woke up and I could down the drink before I even was awake enough to make it.
2. It wasnt as gritty. There wasnt any powder sitting at the bottom of the bottle. It had disolved over night.
.
I think I may have found my new way of drinking my pre-workout.
.
Anyone else ever done this? Anyone else ever heard of doing this but didnt do it?
.
Well I would recommend it alright :-)

.

.
Well its payday!! Its Beachbody payday. They may be small checks, but they are helpful is the day to day. .
Also, they are evidence that I am slowly building my future. .
Want in on a weekly paycheck? Want to know how? I would love to tell you more about it! :-)

And the grandparents did amazingly!
.
Getting care packages are so wonderful. They bring a little bit of home to you when you are away from home. .
It was great seeing their address and my grandmother's handwriting when I saw the box. I will say she knows me well with all that she got me. .
I love the shirt. If I wasnt so responsible, I would be true to the shirt. So allergic to mornings lol
.
Thank you so much Poppi and Susan! Love you both so much!! ❀❀❀😚😚

Oh its been a crazy one so far. I walked into work a little early and then its go, go, go for the next few hours. Water is your friends. .
Talk about a great way to start my week out. No complaints :-)

Ever struggle to get your daily vitamins and minerals? Dont like taking multiple pills to get your daily dose? .
I sure struggled taking my vitamins daily. I would spend the money to get the multi-pack but then I just couldnt get myself to take them on a daily basis. .
I struggled with that for years. I even got the gummies thinking that would do the trick. Nope. Didnt work.
.
Then over 2 years ago I was introduced to Shakeology. It has changed everything. It is a shake that is a protein shake but also has 70 vitamins and minerals in 1 serving. .
I am so much healthier because of it. It helps me recover from my workouts, it helps curb the sugar cravings, it helps keep me regular, it helps with my hair and nail growth, it helps keep my skin clear and it helps with my energy. Honestly it does so much more, I just cant list them all. .
Simply put...it is the game changer that I needed in my life. .
The best part, it comes in so many great flavors. Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla and Cafe Latte. .
Again I ask, would you want to get your daily vitamins and minerals in the form of a shake? I sure know that I do :-)

Pushed play - accomplished
Killed my workout - accomplished .
My alarm almost prevented me from working out as it messed up. But I stull got to the gym, modified my workout to fit my available time. That didnt mean I did less work or didnt put all my effore but I adjusted. .
As with anything in life, having the ability to adjust is everything. .
I could have simply slept in, got another hour of sleep and got ready for work, but I knew that wasnt going to work. I feel even more alive when i take the time to get my workouts. It is even more important when I have a really long day ahead of me. .
What will you do to adjust to do what works for you? Need help getting there? I am here to help.

Day off was a success. Slept in, relaxed and took care of some business. Spent some time helping a few ladies get started on their health and fitness journey. Its a great feeling. .
Now its back to my workout. Time to kick butt.
.
Pre-workout to the rescue. :-)
