Monday Mantra 5

WELCOME BACK! To both you and me. It’s been a while since March.. how have you been?! I’d hate to use the word “busy” so I’ll have to say as much as I wanted to write, share recipes, talk about fitness and grow my blog – I had to step back and focus my efforts in other areas of life. And sometimes that happens! Within that time I’ve gotten a promotion at work, completed my certification as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and even traveled to Hawaii with my love. I haven’t stopped reading other blogs and I feel so inspired to write and satisfy my passions for health and fitness right here with ya!

Starting each week with a positive quote or thought is a game changer for me. I’m going to continue that every Monday, so you can join in too.



Powerful quote above, huh? I think this one’s a biggie no matter where you’re at in life. In different situations, offices, social gatherings, family events, sports teams, etc… You may catch yourself giving power over to someone or something else. When you take a step back and think about it, there’s just no use in worrying about someone else’s behavior or the outcome of a particular situation. We have zero control over that! All we can do is focus on our own thoughts, actions, and feelings. No one else can rain on your parade unless you give them the power to do so.

So, let’s head into Monday strong and ready to take it all on!

CHEERS to taking our power back!

  • Do you like starting the week off with a positive thought? I’ve started to see quotes all over Instagram every Monday morning and I love it!

Monday Mantra 4

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. This whole time change thing really effects us, doesn’t it? I didn’t want any veggies at lunch yesterday because my body still thought it was in the morning hours. I read somewhere that it takes a week to adjust to the 1 hour change – do you agree? Who knew 1 hour made such a difference! Anyway, here we are. This week’s quote is a bit of a zinger, but I really love it. We all have our moments, perhaps judging someone else’s choices, actions, or doings. Maybe we’ve even talked about it with a friend. I’m all for venting. I’m just not for judging – there’s a big difference! I think most people are extra sensitive on Mondays, so this quote is a great eye-opener for the week.



CHEERS to a mindful Monday!

  • Do you have any Monday rituals? How do you cope with the Monday blues? I always set my coffee pot so a nice warm mug awaits 🙂

Monday Mantra 3

Monday has struck again! I hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend. Yesterday I went to an arm balance and inversion yoga class. I was in awe of the instructor, her back muscles, and the way she balanced with such grace. Yoga sure does take a lot of practice. I love headstands, but arm balances are a whole new world to me. I didn’t know what to expect when I walked into the class, but I left with sore arms and new challenges to tackle. I usually practice yoga at home, so I was really out of my comfort zone. Speaking of which..


This quote is so true. Think about the last time you were really proud of yourself or felt really accomplished.. Now before that sense of pride, you maybe were a nervous reck, anxious, uncomfortable? SEE! It’s amazing what can happen when we give ourselves opportunities to be courageous, daring, and adventurous.

CHEERS to trying new things!

  • When is the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone? .. meeting a new friend for coffee, trying a  fitness class, interviewing for a job, going somewhere new by yourself..

Monday Mantra 2

Welcome to Monday! Did you enjoy your mantra last week? Daily affirmations can be hard, especially if you don’t believe in them quite yet. If you go at it with a distracted mind, you may not swallow it as much as you would if you were relaxed. This article from Mind Body Green gives 4 tips and 6 steps to get the most out of it! I also enjoy quotes of the day, that always helps me focus on positivity first thing in the morning. I share those all the times on instagram and I also have a pinterest board devoted to inspiring quotes! With that said, here’s my inspiration for today:




CHEERS to a fabulous week!
