Sunday Coffee Talk 1.8 

Quotes, Tips, Motivation, Workouts, and More

This past week has been filled with some great workouts and a solid eating plan. Now that I feel my body is back from a short time off, this upcoming week is going to be another challenge. I have set the goal of working out in the morning everyday this week. I typically find myself working out in the afternoon the majority of the time, however after getting in a few morning workouts last week, I am starting to like them more and more.

I will keep you updated next week about how they go. Alright, on to what I have for you this week:

Quotes for the Week: 

  • “There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path. Don’t allow yourself to become one of them.” – Ralph Marston

Far too many times we come up with excuses about why we cannot achieve something. We blame family, friends, work, business, etc. But have you ever thought that YOU may be the one that is holding you back? Take this quote to heart and really take a look if you have become an obstacle in your own life. If you have, figure out how you can change that.

  • “How am I to know what I can achieve if I quit?” -Jason Bishop

I am always reminding myself that anything is possible when I put my mind to it. That said, if I quit something how would I ever know if I could have done that certain thing? Don’t allow yourself to quit anything if it is something you truly want. If you want to be healthy and stay healthy for life, don’t allow the word quit to even enter your vocabulary.

  • “I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.” – Donald Trump

We all have goals and dreams that we are going after and my question to you this week is ‘Why not make those goals and dreams BIG?’ As Mr. Trump states in this quote, if you are going to think of something why not think big? Don’t settle for average, push to be the best you can be!

Workout for the Week:

Here is a quick look at a circuit I will be partaking in this week:

Workout:

For the workout below you will perform Exercise 1 for 30 seconds followed by a 30 seconds rest. Then perform 30 seconds of Exercise 1 followed immediately with 30 seconds of Exercise 2 followed by a 30 second rest. You will then complete in this fashion until all exercises have been completed. (Your third round would be 30 seconds of exercises 1,2, and 3 back-to-back-to-back followed by a 30 second rest.)

Exercise 1: Bodyweight Squats
Exercise 2: Push-Ups
Exercise 3: Kettlebell Swings
Exercise 4: Lunges
Exercise 5: Burpees
Exercise 6: Pull-Ups
Exercise 7: Dips
Exercise 8: Box Leap Ups

Motivation for the Week: 

  • “Be patient and tough; some day this pain will be useful to you” – Ovid

This is such a perfect quote for this week ahead. Far too many times we expect immediate results when what we really need to do is be patient, tough, and push through. Especially early on in your journey, you will experience set backs and pain. Just know that in time, these periods will only benefit and strengthen you. Stay strong this week!

Stay Tuned…

I have some great articles coming your way this week including my opinion on morning workouts and why I have decided to start doing more of them. Also, I have got a few exciting programs on the horizon that I cannot wait to share with you! I know, I know, contain your excitement… They will be in your hands soon!
