Shout Out to Your Squad!

Happy Monday Goody Gals! As I was getting ready for work and going through my routine this morning I realized one thing…well, I realized many things but the one that applies here is that a support group is crucial to success toward your goals. Can you achieve greatness without one? Well, yeah…but the journey is so much better with one. You know the ones I’m talking about. Your girls, your squad, your fitches, fellow Goody Gals that believe in you and your goals and only want to see you succeed.

They push you toward greatness when you start to lose sight. They indulge with you when you have an indulgent day but then kick your ass right back into gear the following day. There are no regrets with this group, they are your Fit Fam and life wouldn’t be the same without them.

Recipe: Easy Avocado Chocolate Mousse

I love a good mousse, especially when its a chocolate one, but the thought of making it puts me off massively. If you’ve ever read a recipe for mousse its so ‘faffy’ (totally a word) as you need to use eggs and whip and blah blah..nobody got time for that. So when I came across […]

5 Tips to Motivate You on a Monday

Happy Monday Gals…or in some cases ugh, it’s Monday already?! Getting motivated at the start of the week can be hard. Here are 5 tips to help get you in the mood to embrace Monday.

  1. Start From the Right Perspective – So it’s Monday…that doesn’t have to mean doom and gloom for having to return to the grind of the workweek. Think of Monday as a fresh start. A new opportunity to achieve your goals and do great things!A photo by Aki Tolentino. unsplash.com/photos/Wd5sfFBe4Ng
  2. Work the Body – There’s no better way to kick off a new week than to wake up the senses and put your body to work. Take the time to get a morning workout in to get the blood pumping and start the flow of adrenaline to catapult you into the day.m3.jpeg
  3. Work the Mind – Working the body is all fine and good but don’t forget about your fabulous mind. Not sure about you, but after a weekend of Netflix and drinks the mind can get a little rusty. Sharpen yours with a good read to start off the week.m7
  4. Feel the Music – Ok, let’s be real…MUSIC IS LIFE. Music sets the tone of how your day will flow. If you want a relaxing stress free flow for your day put on some Adele or Sade. If you’re out to kick Monday in the ass go for some Beyonce or Rihanna and show Monday who’s boss!alice-moore-192521
  5. Spread the Love – Sometimes motivating others will naturally motivate you. Making others feel good is powerful…you should try it.m

How do you motivate yourself on Monday?
