You Know you Need A Motivation Monday When…

Yesterday morning as I was sitting at my desk, sulking in my Monday blues, I decided it was a good time to do some organizing which happened to include a very large stack of papers that needed stapled back together and filed.

In the midst of my stapling frenzy, I realized that my shoulder was getting tired… From picking up a stapler and putting it back on my desk over and over. While I was feeling a little embarrassed for myself, I realized that it was a clear sign that I needed some motivation. And also that I need to re-evaluate my summer routine.

In an effort to save some money and embrace the summer weather, I quit my gym membership and came up with a handful of circuit workouts that I was going to combine with running. Well let me just be the first to admit that I have officially fallen off the wagon.

Here are some other signs that you might also need a good, old fashioned, Motivation Monday:

1. Your arms are aching while blow drying your hair (check)

2. You are embarrassingly out of breath at the top of the stairs (yep)

3. Doing one push-up feels like the equivalent of running a marathon (ugh)

4. You post a Motivation Monday post on a Tuesday (whoops)…

On the plus side, I spent all last night grocery shopping and meal planning so at least I have a plan!  Here’s what’s on the agenda today:

Breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter

Snack: Fruit!

Lunch: One of these awesome salads with baby spinach, arugula, sprouts, cucumber, tomato, bell peppers, edamame, and cottage cheese.

Snack: yogurt and green tea

Dinner: Some sort of eggplant/zucchini parmesan

How do you know when it’s time to re-evaluate your workout regimen?
