Happy New Year!
What? Why, yes, I was up at 6:30am today! And not because I was hungover oh NO. I headed my a** to Life Time Fitness and GOT ALL OVER IT.
I am not playing. And well, when I share a picture of my new BFF that I train with at the gym, you'll see what I mean when I say I DO WHAT HE SAYS. There is something to be said about working out WITH SOMEONE -- whether it's a trainer or at least a friend that knows good form and how to spot. Remember I got really frustrated at first trying to do my legs workout alone-- learning how to front squat and trying to go heavy but worrying about bad form and injury.....that sucks. But now, I've got that all handled.
And today by the time 9am rolled around I was spent. My entire body has some form of DOMS at this point-- some left over from late last week and some are just starting to creep in now from this morning.
And I love it.
I have made serious progress on so many things this past week or so. I dove in and started cleaning out my office. It's time to get ORGANIZED and then some. Because I'm all about efficiency in 2013 and not getting burned out-- making time for me and then when I am in the office, being productive.
It's that TREADMILL analogy I shared before. I won't do what I've done for over a year--- the same concept of just STAYING ON THE TREADMILL because I'm scared to get off. When I do that, I might still be moving but I'm moving SLOWER and losing momentum. When I get on and sprint/interval train I kick butt, then I leave and REST.
This is my approach for fitness and for business.
Work will be there. I will handle it. I can LEAVE MY OFFICE and take care of myself!
That means my SLEEP will be a priority. Y'all know I don't do well with no sleep. The new Technogel mattress has made sleeping um so much more heavenly. I can't describe it but I have been MORE than wowed by the difference and the mattress is more FIRM than my last one, which I didn't think I'd like. But I just never want to leave.
I'm also going to bed EARLIER so I can get up earlier. And not WORKING BEFORE BED so I can shut this brain down.
Now. My new office is equipped with some new badass goodness.
My new desktop:
It's not even here yet and I want to marry it. And I just upgraded my iPhone finally. Very upset that Mophie apparently doesn't make a charger for iPhone 5.
I also have a Hujazz bulletin board to take up a wall in my office for my larger than life Vision Board.
I also spent a little bit of cashola on some chic office organizational stuff for my office. Pictures later. I bought myself 2 new saucepans since I'm COOKING MORE in advance.....
Fishy Fishy Fishy.
Roasted Veggies. MMMM.
Based on the input of my BFFs I'm ordering some Nutritional Yeast to put on the veggies-- have any of you tried that?
Making lots of Turkey Meatloaf, still loving my coffee with coconut oil/cinnamon and one TBS heavy cream. MMMMMM.
There is absolutely no purpose in this photo other than to share that I LOVE the neon orange in these Reebok Real Flex shoes. #thatisall Also I should make sure not to use this Instagram filter as it looks like someone poured a ton of dirt on me, my shoes and my carpet. I am not that character from Charlie Brown with dirt all around him.
OH SNAP! DID I ALSO ORDER THIS LES MILLS BODY COMBAT FOR MY CARDIO? Yes. I did. I'm standing by the door waiting for this to show up.
Um. For some reason, today's post is NOT taking the embed code from YouTube correctly. So CLICK HERE to watch the dang preview.
Now.....here is my ramble-on-a-thon from last week. I have one more and then we are CAUGHT UP. ;-)
So. How is YOUR first day of the year?? Are you kicking butt already?? Day isn't over yet. ;-)
