Motivational Monday

Happy Monday everybody, it’s a short week, thank goodness it’s Thanksgiving in T minus 4 days! I’ve been looking forward to this week all year, love me some Turkey, stuffing, candied yams, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pecan and pumpkin pie, eggnog, Sparkling Cider, and all the goodies!

That being said, since it is Monday and knowing my track record for skipping out on Mondays and sleeping in…. you can bet I did the same this morning too. I might just stop setting Monday as the beginning of my workout week. This week I am working out Tuesday through Sunday, and will be taking NEXT Monday off as well. Mondays I like to recover from the weekend and start off the week well rested. What’s wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. Fresh outlook….

Anyways, I wanted to update you guys on my decision about getting a David Barton Gym membership. I discussed finances with Derek with Christmas coming up, our desire to go on a vacation next year, and all of the items I need to make this competition happen like ridiculously high heels, sparkly glittery suit, tanning and spray tanning, hair, make up, and registration!

The answer is apparent, I will NOT be getting a David Barton Membership…. YET. I also won’t be joining a team. I’ve decided to do my first competition on my own and see what opportunities lie ahead after the competition is over. Who knows, maybe I’ll earn my training cert and be able to train at David Barton Gym and workout there for free! It’s a beautiful facility and a great goal to work towards. I really love fitness and hope something great can take off. This could open a door to a whole new realm for me; I am just going to be patient, work my ass off, and hopefully talent scouts will see that and offer me something amazing!

I have always been so intrigued with the fitness industry! Anytime I have downtime my face is in a magazine like ‘FitnessRx for Women‘ or ‘Muscle & Fitness Hers’ reading up on the latest fitness and health articles, I’m on YouTube getting workout ideas from Zuzka, I’m writing my workouts, I’m blogging about my meal plans and workout plans to be held accountable, or I’m at the gym getting my sweat on! I even follow a couple hundred Fitness Instagram accounts to get ideas for workouts, recipes, and to get motivated to kill this competition. I follow all the IFBB Bikini Pros looking at their progress over the years in competing and seeing the changes in their bodies and getting inspired to make changes in my own. You could say I’m some what of a freak! I love it!

Ahhhh, I’m feeling so motivated right now! I can’t wait to kick tomorrow’s ass! I posted my workout for tomorrow above. I’m so excited for Wednesday too, it’s all MY day! No work, no obligations….. I’ve got a date with gym, gonna set an intention for my workout and destroy it! Gonna tan and get rid of this pasty complexion, it’s killing me! This week I’m eating clean until Thanksgiving Day! Right after that I’ll be eating clean again until whatever Christmas parties might roll my way this year.

Much needed 5 day weekend ahead, I’ve worked really hard and have taken a lot of stress lately, you can bet this mini vacation will be well spent. Happy Monday everybody, getcha’ sweat on today and plow through that Turkey on Thursday! XOXO
