They had so many requests, they decided to bring back the classic sunflower design for this months #TBT.  Strong, bold and beautiful, these pieces are not for the timid! Known for being the “happy” flower, sunflowers actually resemble the sun with the petals reaching out like beams of light. It is said this radiant flower symbolizes adoration, loyalty and longevity. TODAY, throwback Thursday is the ONLY day for pre-order! Friday they start production!

Recipe Of The Moment:

I am all over this chili with sweet potatoes, which can be made in the slow-cooker.  Have to make this kind of winter dish while it’s still cooler out!

Dietbet?

focused-e1416663415971-730x388.jpg

Hubby and I are doing a Dietbet to help us focus on our nutrition. We both grew up with reallllly bad eating habits and we tend to get on track and then slowly slide back into emotional comfort zones with eating during stressful or busy times when we aren’t focused on meal planning. This is our first time doing one. We thought about it before but missed the start because we were busy with holiday stuff. Not losing or wasting money is another big focal point for us now so we figured it would be a great motivator!

Aren’t these capris just amazing 💜 The website doesn’t do justice to the colors!! I’m really happy we moved closer to a nice area to go where we can walk/run at. It’s a big plus they have workout stations space so many feet apart along the route. Fabulous for cross training and muscle confusion.

 

Never Quit

12-ideas-on-the-amazing-power-of-failure-50-638Today I did one of the workouts on Core De Force, it kicked my booty! So I know this program will be big in my rotation.

It feels fabulous when you get over a hump or plateau in your training and I did that this week with run training. Cross training and yoga are helping to strengthen my legs!

I know the struggle will be back. But that’s the point, keep challenging yourself. With running, fitness or nutrition changes, just when you think it’s horrible and the worst feeling in the world, you go over that bump in the road and start coasting along. So never give up. That really is the point when you are just about to turn a corner and achieve a goal!

Are you facing a plateau in your training, workouts, or nutrition? These tips may help you overcome some obstacles and get past some roadblocks. These are strategies that are helping me in big ways. Let me know if these help you, or if you have any ideas to add!

  1. Keep A Log – Make A Plan – Be Accountable – First things first, you have to get organized and make a plan of action. Write it down, keep it visible. And talk about it. Find a person, group, etc… where you feel comfortable to make yourself uncomfortable. You have to put yourself out there with everything you’re trying to achieve when you are struggling, unsure what to do, or afraid to take that step forward. Being open about whatever it is, weight, nutritional pitfalls, consistency, or just simply needing motivation from a place of non-judgement.
  2. Purge And Shop – Get rid of the junk food, cookies, candy and soda if you are trying to lose weight or eat healthier. When you just start out the gate with a new plan you cannot count on yourself to have willpower. You make it harder on yourself to put temptation or unhealthy foods right in your face.
  3. When You Are Stuck, Work On Form – Ok, so you can’t run, yet. Your legs aren’t conditioned well enough, yet. But you’re feeling defeated and uninspired? Stop trying to run and just walk. Bring your focus point in to a more narrow view. Work on perfecting your walking, going farther, or faster. With food give up one thing at a time. For instance one thing a week. This week I will give up soda (pop, cola), next week I will give up my morning donut. So in two weeks you’ve given up a whole lot of empty calories that have zero nutrition!
  4. Change It Up – Try new recipes! Your taste buds need to be as inspired as you are. Don’t let yourself fall into a running/fitness rut. If you find yourself hating what your doing there is no rule that says you can’t take some time off and do something different. Go on a hike, switch workout programs, change the location of your runs. Shake up your routine!
  5. Add Weight Training – And don’t settle for the same weight every time. Challenge yourself and ladies, don’t be afraid to lift heavier weights. You won’t look like a bodybuilder until you train to be a bodybuilder.
  6. Give Yourself Recovery Time – Allow your body to rest and recover. Incorporate some yoga into your routine. Your body will yell at you if you don’t give it recovery and down time. And when it starts yelling you will be more prone to quit if you don’t give it a rest and stretch! Foam rollers are amazing for helping achy muscles to release and heal 💙

Change your course, adjust your sails, but never, ever give up!
