Monday Motivation: Getting Out of Your Own Way

You know what? Sometimes we can be our greatest obstacle. No one can stand in the way of your greatness, but you. Don’t get me wrong, there are many valid excuses,  genuine road blocks and heavy situations that might encourage you to give up on yourself but none of them should be stronger than your will to be great!

If you find yourself having one of those days where negative thoughts or excuses are starting to cloud your way of thinking, try practicing these 3 steps to reaching your full potential. After all, you are a Goody Gal!

3 Tips

Tip #1: Remember, You’re a Badass!

When you start to feel down or stuck in a rut just take a moment to think on all of the reasons why you’re great. What have you accomplished in your life thus far? Take those positive thoughts and let them propel you into action to add to the list of badassery (yes, that’s a word)!

Tip #2: Set Small Goals

Rome wasn’t built in a day, or at least that’s what I’m told. It’s great to have large goals that make a significant impact on your life but you’ll need to take small steps to get there. Break things down into digestible pieces and start tackling one task at a time. Before you know it the accomplishments will start adding up.

Tip #3: Reward Yourself

Because, I mean, who doesn’t love a gift? If you have something that you’ve been wanting but it’s a little too grand to just pick up on your way home from work, use that as motivation. Reward yourself for hitting milestones and accomplishing your goals. You earned it!

Do you have a way to motivate yourself that works every time? Tell us about it below!

Get Out of the Gym!

Good morning lovelies and welcome to this beautiful spring Tuesday! We know that working out is a must for a Goody Gal but who says it has to be done in a gym? Get outside, breathe the fresh air, let the sunshine energize you as you get your workout in today. You can go running, for a brisk walk or do a full routine in the park.

Some cities have outdoor gyms so search your city to see if there is one near you. If not you can always create a routine using regular, every day park equipment.

Check out this park bench workout by Shape.com for some inspiration before heading out to get your sweat on.

Dance It Out Gals

It’s Friday and us Gals are fully ready to head into a fantastic weekend. We want to close the week out strong with a little bit of cardio dance.  If you’re saying,  “cardio Dance… will I even sweat?”, let me be the first to tell you,  Yes girl, these routines will kick your ass!

Two of my favorite dancers that you can find on YouTube are Mike Peel and the Fitness Marshall. They both have their own unique style, which I love.

The Fitness Marshall is a hoot! He’s easy to follow and he’s really fun in the way that he delivers the videos. He’s loud, sassy and full of energy.

Mike Peele on the other hand is more of a hard hitting dancer.  He’s fun as well but he breaks things down in a different way and really allows you to feel like you’re a professional dancer. Mike Peele is a little bit faster in his flow and he really challenges you to bring your dancing skills up to the next level.

Will you be getting your dance on today?

3 Tips to Feeling More Confident

Happy Tuesday Goody Gals,

It’s a beautiful day and I just wanted to come and share some happiness with you. On days when it’s nice outside and you wake up feeling like the happiest girl in the world, confidence is not usually an issue. It’s the gray days that you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, mad at the world that confidence can elude you. Here are a few tips to help you carry that “sunny day confidence” forward, even on the grayest of days.

Tip 1: Wake Up Again

pexels-photo-262145

There’s nothing wrong with a re-do. Yes, even as adults we need these sometimes. It only takes 5 minutes to lay back down, rest a moment then get up slowly and do some in-bed yoga stretches to put you in a better mood to take on the day.

Tip 2: Get Ugly

You know when you work out so hard and happen to catch yourself in the mirror making that ugly face? That’s a good thing. Put in work ladies! When you’re getting your sweat on don’t be concerned with how you look, who cares? The goal is to work your ass off so that you feel accomplished which in turn leads to confidence.

Tip 3: Slay Girl, Slay!

beautiful-2150881_1920

Clothes don’t make the woman but they sure do help the woman to feel more confident. The right outfit can set the tone for how you see yourself. You should be feelin’ yourself every day because honestly, you are awesome. Don’t shy away from that.

How do you boost your confidence on those days when it’s a bit lacking?
