🎀 Good evening everybody! 🎀
🎀Today ALMOST became a disaster since I didn’t follow the plan. No waking up at 6 AM happened. Noooope. I slept until 7:20 like a baby.
(There could be worst disasters, I know)
🎀 HOWEVER, instead of sulking in the deception of my failed morning 👉 I owned it!
🎀TIP: Own your failures AS WELL as you successes.
(Of course some failures are harder to swallow than a failed wake up call, but you know what I mean! )
👉 I walked my daughter to school and I was extremely #grateful for the NON – 30°© weather.
👉 Mental health wise: Actively trying to be grateful instead of negative.
So this is how it goes: when you’re thinking that the person driving ahead of you is a f** mor**, SWITCH IT UP.
👉Instead, practice the art of smiling (lightly, perhaps the way you would imagine a serial killers passive aggressive smirk – YES that’s the one! You got me!), and repeat: “No I don’t want to murder him”
(HERE: try unclenching your teeth, ever so slightly, so you could hear more than a mumble coming out of your mouth..)
“MAYBE HE IS HAVING A BAD DAY.”
(There you go!)
BAM! You did it!!
That’s all there is to it. This practice makes you FEEL 100 X better. I SWEAR! I do it myself ALMOST all the time. (The other times I’m thinking about what the fastest and easiest ways are to dispose of…).
🎀 OK. So I got carried away there. *Earth back to Emily* (yes. That is my name. You think my parents called me Miss Bow? Now YOU’RE the weirdo!)
Sorry sorry. NO JUDGEMENTS HERE. I promise.
🎀 Let’s get down to the real purpose of this blog post.
🎀M1: three Berry sweet mini muffins from the tone it up nutrition plan:
🎀M2: Berry Sweet Smoothie Bowl topped with blueberries, strawberries, Chia seeds and coconut flakes.
🎀M3: Overnight oats that were meal prepped for this week. With flax seeds…I can’t remember what it’s called. But it’s also in the nutrition plan! It was DELISH.
🎀M4: I had some kielbasa (key-a-ew-bassa – polish sausage) AND cucumbers with hummus.
🎀M5: quinoa, chicken and salad (basic, yummy goodness)
🎀 Today I joined a new challenge and then challenged other girls to do it with me: the tone it up push up challenge. It’s basically 7 minutes of different types of pushups to do once or twice a week. VERY worth it. I hope to see an improvement on that front soon!
🎀 Daily moves: they were different from the moves in the studio tone it up app today, so very worth doing! I did do them.
🎀 Studio tone it up app: there were two videos for today. The first was a yoga flow routine with Karena Dawn, and then a meditation with her as well. I love her Monday morning meditations! They are becoming a habit for my Mondays that I crave!
That’s all for today’s recap!
Hope you enjoyed it!
