Down & Dirty 30 – Day 8…

PhotoGrid_1426011091658All I can hear in my head right now are sports analogies…..

“Get your head in the game, Son!”

“Do work!”

” You’re never a loser till you quit trying”

“It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up”

I have a whole playlist on YouTube that different people put together to help motivate and inspire. I have some friends that think it is hogwash and I have some friends are equally as motivated and inspired by these quotes and videos. It is something that I know works for me. I found myself going through some of these quotes in my head throughout the day yesterday. I had a busy day. I did a lot of walking, climbed a lot of hills and when I sank into bed last night to sync my Fitbit and saw that I came in 80 steps shy of 10K….you can imagine the words that left my mouth. I was tempted to get dressed again and go for a walk! On the plus side I climbed so many hills that I nailed my “stair” goal! I didn’t get in the gym time I was hoping for but I defiantly got the cardio in with the hill walking!

Eating wise….I was out and about with friends yesterday and I didn’t anticipate being out that long and I ran out of snacks and found myself to scared to risk eating anything I couldn’t easily calculate the points for. So I finished in way UNDER my points value for the day. Not a habit I care to continue as I found last night when I was eating dinner that I could keep on eating! The whole purpose of this journey is to develop healthy habits.

I am back at work, back in my routine for work and I was so excited to pack my gym bag this morning! When I am not exercising I miss it. I miss the feeling of accomplishment and I am excited to get back it today! YAY!!!!

Here is a link to one of my favorite videos to watch on YouTube….in case you need a little pick me up 🙂
