Quotes, Tips, Motivation, Workouts, and More

After telling you last week that my workouts and eating had been a little bit off, I had lots of improvement this week by getting in some good workouts and eating pretty healthy. There is still room for improvement and that is why this week I am back full force. Being on vacation and not highly motivated, it was easy to just eat whatever was available (many times junk).

This week however, I am staying strong to my plan. I will be eating all clean healthy meals until Saturday where I will then enjoy a cheat day. Inspired by the picture below, I am going to be planning a big cheat day next Saturday so that is going to force me to stay strong to my meals this week. No slip ups and no excuses.

The Inspirational Cheat Day!

If you want to join me for this challenge, it starts today right when you read this article. Prepare your food ahead of time, and stay to eating all real food throughout the week.

Quotes for the Week: 

  • “The consequences of today are determined by the actions of the past. To change your future, alter your decisions today.” – Anonymous

We can all sit and dwell on the past, but what good would that do? Start making the choice TODAY to get better and live a better life. The decisions you make right now will have a direct impact on your future. If you need to lose 25 pounds, that starts right now as you read this. No more waiting around or pondering what you could have done in the past. Live in the moment so you can have a better future.

  • “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” – Gary Player

So many times after people accomplish something great in their life, others around them start saying “how luck they are.” This quote right here sums it all up: if you go out and lose 25 pounds, did you get “lucky?” Did your metabolism just magically speed up for you to lose that weight? Of course not, you worked hard each and everyday to make that happen.

Start creating luck in your own life. The more lucky you get, the harder that means you are working!

  • “Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein

I love this quote simply because it shows the power of your mind. You have got to be able to see your vision before it can actually take place. See where you want to be in 3, 6, and 12 months then work hard each day to make those visions come true.

Motivation for the Week: 

  • “I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.” – Tony Robbins

Each day is meant for you to make it a masterpiece. There comes a point in life when you have to stop the bad habits and make positive changes in your life. Why not make today that day?
