Striving to be this content in life๐Ÿ’• โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Striving everyday to intentionally live in the moment. I never want to be so fixed on tomorrow that Iโ€™m not โ€œpresentโ€ for what is happening today. This picture reminds me that life is too short to worry about what will happen tomorrow.

No more excuses๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Excuses are the easy way out. Excuses hold you back from reaching your goals. โ€œIf you constantly make and break promises to yourself, youโ€™re not making promises at all. Youโ€™re talking.โ€ Follow through for yourself because you deserve it๐Ÿ’• #selflovefirst #noexcusenovember #rachelhollis #rachelhollisquotes #goalsetting2018 #motivation #inspire #workthatmatters #healthylifestyle #cookiesarelife #personaldevelopment #keepyourpromisestoyourself #readingtime ๐Ÿ“– #morethanjustfitness
Where the rubber meets the road.....I ordered a Hungryroot box with all salad and somehow this brownie and cookie batter got in my box. Talk about hard to resist... I made them for my hubby and the whole house smells like cookies. They are vegan AND gluten free and I could totally eat them BUT I made a promise to myself for #last90days that I wouldn't eat processed sugar or pastry or cookies etc. So, I'm proud to say I stuck to it. None for me. Just enjoying my current intermittent fast window! ๐Ÿคช #keepyourpromisestoyourself #noexcuses
I get asked all the time "okay, Michele how did you do it?" or "what are you doing to get these results?" Or "tell me exactly what you do for nutrition." So folks this is what I did! 1. I made a promise to myself. I committed to my health and have not broken that commitment. 2. I worked out in some cases everyday (depending on the program) whether it was 30 mins or up to 60 mins I got my workouts in. In February 2018 I added the following to my lifestyle. 3. Really focused on following the meal plan associated with the workout program, meal planning and meal prepping because I FINALLY realized how important nutrition is. 4. I decided I was worth the cost of almost $4 a day superfoods smoothie. I decided the daily $5 16 oz mocha was not serving me so I eliminated that instead. . . But what I've noticed is, after I share all this, I find that people decide to try only one or two steps! Maybe the workouts, maybe the nutrition but not all the steps. I get it! I was skeptical as well. I thought that if I just do the workouts and eat somewhat healthy I would get the results I wanted. And I did...for a while but I plateaued. It wasn't until I started a program at the same time as thousands of others and they were having amazing results but my results were probably half of what I was seeing others achieve, that I realized the missing piece was NUTRITION. I made the commitment to workout everyday so steps 1 & 2 done but I was not onboard with steps 3 & 4. I really do believe that if someone gives all four steps a REAL CHANCE then REAL RESULTS are going to happen. . . . So... That's what I did! Are you ready to give the four steps a try for at least one month? If you kind of sort of try then you'll kind of sort of get results. So give this a real chance... And get the results that you know you want!! . . . . . . . . #fitmompnw #noexcusesnovember #realresults #busymomlife #mommaoftwo #sahmlife #wahmlife #momswhosing #Christianmommas #Jesusfollower #workingmomtosahm #keepyourpromisestoyourself #committoyourhealth #giveyourselfachance #transformationtuesday #transformation

Apparently I was inspired by Halloween today! I somehow forced myself to come home and do my workout, despite being rather tired and even upped my weights! (and now my arms are pure jello...) I didn't even realize I put on orange and black clothing too ha Happy Tuesday! Now to go watch the Wicked special I missed last night yay! #Halloween #orangeandblack #upperbody #upperbodyfix #21dayfix #increasedweights #Wicked #last90days #last90dayschallenge #Rachelhollis #keepyourpromisestoyourself #pushyourself
Do it because you said you would. โค๏ธ ..And if youโ€™re a mom like me, because little eyes are ALWAYS watching! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ #betheexample #youaretheirhero #nevergiveup #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Broken promises. You know, when I was a kid there were some of these yeah. So much so that I vowed not to make promises unless I knew I could keep them - as an adult. But you know what? It was okay for me to break them to myself and Iโ€™ve done that over and over again. Iโ€™m sure many of you have too. Rachel in her book, โ€œGirl, Wash Your Faceโ€, talks about these. Promises we make to ourselves are the most important ones. Before reading this book - which I am still in the middle of doing - I had already decided to stop breaking those promises to myself. Today - let each of us vow to keep the promises we make to ourselves. Be careful which ones you make and start small but keep them over and over again and it will get easier. This is why when Greg asked me about my late night workout last night - โ€œhey, canโ€™t you put it off til tomorrowโ€ before he could finish I said โ€˜no,โ€™ and โ€œdouble it up tomorrow?โ€ And again I said โ€˜noโ€™. It was a 27 minute workout!! Who doesnโ€™t have time for that. Thatโ€™s how bad I want what I want and why I wonโ€™t break the promises I have to myself - or at least Iโ€™ll try hard not to. Doesnโ€™t mean I wonโ€™t have a cheat meal or a dessert here and there but it does mean Iโ€™m focused on my goals. I did quit drinking soda and now Iโ€™m helping my team achieve their goals while achieving my own. Broken promises. Leave them in the past. Moving forward keep the ones you make to yourself because that will help move you forward to your goals - whatever they are !! Your Saturday PSA brought to you by a girl who is going to crush her goals one by one and hopes that you will too !! ๐Ÿ’•
I lost track of how many times I wanted to quit today. Didnโ€™t though. . If I quit, I would have let down my challengers, let down my team, and let down my family. But more importantly, I would let down myself. And, I donโ€™t want to do that. . . . #keepyourpromisestoyourself #athomeworkouts #abworkout #6packabs #corework #fitnessceo #fitnessmom #strongereveryday #fit #fitlife

I had so many reasons today why I couldnโ€™t workout: -Iโ€™m sick -I have a sick kid home to look after -I barely slept last night -Iโ€™m exhausted and no energy -my monthly friend showed up this morning. -Iโ€™ll just do it tomorrow. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ โ€ข But then I remembered how great I feel after I workout. How I made a promise to myself to not make excuses and show up everyday. ๐Ÿ’ฅ โ€ข Sometimes you just have to suck up those excuses and push through cause I guarantee youโ€™ll feel better. โ€ข โ€œWhen you really want something, youโ€™ll find a way. When you donโ€™t really want something, youโ€™ll find excusesโ€. Rachel Hollis

Ive been breaking too many lately. Skipping workouts, indulging a little too much, not getting enough sleep... posting as a reminder to myself #keepyourpromisestoyourself #selfcare #getitdone #backontrack #eatclean #trainharder #remembertorest
This is the face of a girl who wasn't super stoked to come home and do a workout. So, I made sure to pump myself up on the way home by listening to this morning's live stream by @msrachelhollis and @mrdavehollis , and boy did it work! Particularly since this week's theme is health! So I came home, immediately jumped on the bike, and 30 minutes and 8.7 miles later I was a sweaty mess who just got to another personal record ๐Ÿ’ช Happy Monday! Btw, I didn't stick to things as well this weekend, but I will get back up and keep going! #afterworkworkout #mondaymotivation #nevermissamonday #last90days #last90dayschallenge #getafterit #selfcare #cycling #keepyourpromisestoyourself #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #personalrecord #sweatymess
Get to it my ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ friends... Everyday you delay is one more day LESS closer to your goals! Stop breaking those promises to yourself! Would you break a promise to your child or husband? I didnโ€™t think so! You are as important as all of those people in your life and they need and want you to take care of yourself, So stick to it and make time for yourself. #healthylifestyle #lularoeleggings #commit #keepyourpromisestoyourself #90daychallenge #lularoefashionretailer #fashionstylist #goals #lifestyleblogger #fashionblogger #happylife #healthylivingjourney

Promises...I think I am pretty good at keeping my promise to friends/family but I am the worst at keeping promises to myself ๐Ÿ˜– If I canโ€™t be true to myself how can I be true to others??? Iโ€™ve let myself down so many times over my life that it really doesnโ€™t even affect me anymore when I donโ€™t stick to the diet, go to the gym, organize that room, stay on budget, take my supplements, etc etc ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ As a mother, Iโ€™ve realized that one of the best skills I can teach my son is to be consistent and stay true to your dreams, goals and to yourself ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ And first I have to show him that I can do it ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป New me โœŒ๐Ÿป You can too!!! #beconstistent #staytruetoyourself #keepyourpromisestoyourself #keepongrowing
You know your workout was a challenge when your eyebrows get messed up and you need a filter to hide your Red Baron face! Ha! Week 2 of LIIFT4 is complete and Iโ€™m already feeling stronger. This program is fun and completely compatible with a busy schedule. I canโ€™t wait to see what Week 4 will bring! @theegrayson @mclouthb3 Thank you for doing this with me! #fitnessfriends #progress #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Its 9pm, I haven't had dinner and I still have on my scrubs....it was a long day and the old me would have drank a half bottle of wine and called it a day.

Feeling exhausted & Lousy about yourself? After I had my first son I struggled with the things thatโ€™s so many new moms do ... my body was no longer my own, I was heavier than I wanted to be, my skin was a mess, I was exhausted and very low on confidence. The idea of consistently working out and โ€œdietingโ€ was daunting to me. โ€œLove and nature a tiny human being AND find time to exercise?โ€ Forget it. My girlfriend had just completed a round of the 30 Days to Healthy Living challenge and had lost tons of weight, her energy levels were up and her confidence was soaring. I inquired more and immediately dismissed it. It was too expensive and felt too radical to me. Cut out foods just because I might not react well to them? Fat chance. So while I wallowed and continued to deal with self doubt and body image, my friend finished her second round and the transformation was incredible. So I decided to commit myself to learning more and giving the program a chance. Fast forward 30 Days. I lost 9 pounds and 4.5โ€ off my waist. My skin was smooth and glowing. My energy levels were higher than I can ever remember them being. I didnโ€™t HAVE to exercise for the change to occur but it sure motivated me to start to incorporate some into my routine. Taking my baby for a walk? No problem! And the biggest change... my confidence was back. I had committed to something, saw it through and was floored with the change that had occurred. I could take on anything! One thing I learned was that nothing will happen and youโ€™ll remain in your cycle if you donโ€™t take massive action. I got out of my comfort zone, said yes to a food overhaul, determined what foods really donโ€™t serve my body and Iโ€™m SO much better for it. You have to let go of the complaints and do the work. If youโ€™re stuck in a cycle and are feeling how I felt just a mere few years ago, letโ€™s touch base and I can show you how this one commitment to yourself and your health will change your life! #transformationthursday #healthylivinginsideandout #fuelyourbodyright #putyourselffirst #investinyourhealth #thelast90days #thebossbabesociety #confidencebuilder #keepyourpromisestoyourself

This page is a checklist that I use to track my progress in the #last90days challenge with @msrachelhollis (author of Girl Wash Your Face) and her husband @mrdavehollis . As you can see there are empty boxes. Those show where I fell short on those days. I could choose to focus on them, and in the past I would have, but I donโ€™t. If I did I would probably quit on myself...again. ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ Last 90 Days is a challenge to use the last 90 days of the year to become the best you that you can be. I never realized that, in the past, October was the time of year when I would give up and just figure I would try again next year. I was giving up on myself with an entire quarter of the year left! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ Now, if I was to focus on those empty squares I would feel pretty badly about myself. And days like today, when getting up and working out was not just difficult but uncomfortable, would be a day to give up. But, I didnโ€™t. I got up and showed up for myself. Something has changed. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ I have learned to focus on what I have done and how far I have come rather than what I havenโ€™t done and how far I still have to go. So I look at this chart and I see that I have gotten up an hour early for 16 days. I have worked out (or walked) 14 days. I have increased my water consumption considerably and cut sugar from my diet for 14 straight days. I have also written down 85 things that I am grateful for. It looks like I have made a lot of progress! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ Shifting your focus is so powerful. If you focus on all your shortcomings, that is all you will see. Focusing on your progress motivates you to keep on going. ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ Which one are you focusing on today? ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿ #takethechallenge #becomeyourbestself #focusontheprogress
When I became pregnant with my first child, there were many promises I made to both myself and to my unborn child. One of them was that I would try my best to be as present as I could not just for the โ€˜importantโ€™ stuff like PTA meetings, school assemblies or game day but also for special classroom days, field trips and practices because honestly, those things are just as important to me. Today I had the opportunity to visit the pumpkin patch with Zacharyโ€™s preschool class and while there with him, I acknowledged that I was making good on a silent promise and that was one of the most fulfilling feelings Iโ€™ve had in a while. ****** It is so easy to break our promises to ourselves because those are the promises that donโ€™t have any real accountability. You said you would try harder or start that thing or stop that thing. You promised yourself you would be different, better... if you would be brave enough to be honest with just YOU, what promises have you broken to yourself... and what are you going to do to change that? #keepyourpromisestoyourself #selfcaretip #fieldtrip #ipromise
So the last two days I've been on the struggle bus. I worked all last week, was on call over the weekend and continue to work this week. I have been on call or out of town every weekend for the past month or more. I didn't get up this morning to workout. I have appointments and a meeting this afternoon so now was my only window. I kept my promise to myself and got it done! And as always I don't regret it at all ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, I did 8 miles pretty easily, without killing myself, which is awesome improvement from where I started! #last90days #last90dayschallenge #rachelhollis #cycling #motivation #strugglebus #adulting #keepyourpromisestoyourself #girlwashyourface #noexcuses #healthydoc #obgyn #obgynlife #oncall #oncalllife #doctorlife #reallifemd #selfcare #obstetrician #gynecologist #ilooklikeadoctor #bosslady

Truth Bomb: I struggle to get motivated in the morning! Yes I am up with the birds but I still look for excuses and this morning was a stitch in my side. But......... All it took was 37 minutes to be drenched in sweat and feeling fantastic! Had 101 excuses but definitely pushed them aside and pressed play.

After this weekend (and some key conversations), I decided to start keeping promises to myself. Well, one for me has been to get up and go to CrossFit since my schedule changed a few months back. So, here I am. At 6am. Doing 175# Rack Pulls.

Well yesterday I listened to my exhausted body and rested. Today I listened again and since I was feeling good, decided to make up for yesterday! So I did 30 minutes on the bike for 8.3 miles followed by another 30 minutes of yoga to cool down, and I feel awesome! I've also got a pork roast in the slow cooker for dinner and now waiting to watch the Jaguars game and complete some charting from Friday. Happy Sunday!

Day 10 #last90days ๐Ÿƒ When I lost my 100 pounds on #weightwatchers 27 years ago, I worked out with my mother-in-law. We had each other for #accountability I don't have her this time. Thankfully I have the #last90dayschallenge community for motivation, accountability and tips. ๐Ÿƒ When you are on a #weightlossjourney or working on #makenewhabitsbreakbadhabits often willpower is not enough. You start out strong and by day 10 those bad food choices or bad habits slowly creep back in. ๐ŸƒI was asked yesterday by a friend, "did you fall off the wagon yet?" I thought, what a strange question! But in all fairness, how many of us have "cheated" by now? ๐Ÿƒ"Ummmm....no! I am all in!" and she says back to me, "you are stronger than I am". And my first thought wasn't of me, but how sad it is that she thinks less of herself. ๐ŸƒMy friend went on to share that staying on track takes too much work. She is tired by the end of her day and can't fathom taking on one more thing. ๐ŸƒMy first question was "Aren't you important enough to make time in your day for yourself?" As moms, wives, employees and all the other hats we wear these days, we give OUR ALL to everyone else and have nothing left for ourselves! ๐ŸƒShe said she is tired of starting "plans" and not sticking to them. She knows herself and by the second week she would be done. ๐ŸƒI get that! We have all been there. But ME - I'm done with that negative self-talk! Girls, guys, if you are breathing, WE are #madeformore ๐ŸƒWe have to start keeping PROMISES to ourselves like we keep promises for others! We need to keep showing up everyday like we do for our work, children, spouses. ๐ŸƒWriting my plan for the day keeps me on track. Reading posts ya' all share motivates me and lets me know I'm not alone! Together we can achieve our goals and keep our promises to ourselves! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ Are you doing this with me?

Last minute rush of errands to get ready for our first end of unit celebration at co-op tomorrow. I am committed to not eating fried foods or soda for the #last90days of the year, so when dinner came from the drive thru I had to keep my promise to myself. Grilled chicken club and a super foods salad plus chugging water for the win! Thanks Chick fil A for helping me make healthy choices in the run.
The law of inertia, simply, states that objects in motion tend to stay in motion and objects at rest tend to stay at rest, unless acted on by an unbalanced force. I am finding that this #last90days challenge has been the unbalanced force that has kicked my butt into motion! 9 days in, even with crazy and late days at work, as well as travelling over the weekend, I haven't missed a workout...and I feel so good! By adding 30 minutes of moving my body every day, I'm finding I complete more tasks daily than when I hadn't obligated that 30 minutes to exercise! Looking forward to continuing this feeling! Also looking forward to a yummy dinner put together this evening after our workout! ๐Ÿ˜ #last90dayschallenge #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself #inertia #keepgoing #energy #efficiency #healthydoc #healthyliving #commitment #afterworkworkout #personalrecord #cycling #fivetothrive #steak #zipperpeas
A busy day finished off by the delivery of a sweet baby ๐Ÿ‘ถ Ready to take on tomorrow! PS I had a late night and busy day, but with my workout and hydration, I had great energy when I got home to get some things done, including unpacking! #last90days #last90dayschallenge #rachelhollis #keepyourpromisestoyourself #girlwashyourface #obgyn #obgynlife #oncalllife #oncall #babycatcher #atyourcervix #ilovemyjob
Back to the grind today! Knocking out a couple of surgeries, caring for a laboring patient and then office this afternoon! I didn't get home until midnight due to flight delays so I chose to sleep this morning, but I am planning to get my workout in this evening and hydrate throughout the day (after caffeine!).

New week. New Moon. Learning something new.... ๐ŸŒ˜ Itโ€™s a good week to pick something from your bucket-list and take a step towards it.

So Sioux City airport, abbreviation SUX ๐Ÿ˜‚, has a total of two gates. I arrived and security was closed! A grand total of one line. I had to wait for it to open. I was watching the Jaguars game, but now it is too painful. Flying back to Jax tonight and back to work tomorrow! I have so enjoyed my time here, such fun new experiences! And oh yeah, I got 30 minutes of yoga in this morning and am 3/4 done with my water today! #travel #siouxcity #suxairport #iowa #last90dayschallenge #last90days #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself #yoga #tinyairport #doctorlife #obgynlife #oncalltomorrow

When you forgot how INTENSE the #tiuhiitybittybikini workout is ๐Ÿ˜ณ!! Got in my workouts for the day, HIIT & #tiu31 daily moves. Better late than never ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜†! Still no bread or fried food eaten! There were a lot of eating habits I picked up while pregnant with Mr Man & then afterwards while breastfeeding him. A lot of the habits I kicked during the last 5 months, but bread and fried foods (hello southern living) are the last ones to kick. #last90days #changemakers #tiuteam #momlife #sticktotheplan #keepyourpromisestoyourself #day6done #firsttimemama #postpartum #helpothers #sahmlife #wahmlife
Twelve weeks... Thatโ€™s how long ago I decided to stop giving up on myself. When I decided that excuses donโ€™t have any place in my life. When I realized I needed to stop putting everyone and everything else ahead of my own health. Itโ€™s bittersweet to only have one week to go in 80DO, because I have loved it in a way that Iโ€™ve never loved a workout program ever. Thank goodness I can circle back around and do it again! So...when are you going to stop breaking promises to yourself and realize that you ABSOLUTELY ARE WORTH IT? Because I am so insanely thankful that Iโ€™m not sitting here 12 weeks after I started, wishing I hadnโ€™t given up... #noteasybutworthit #80dayobsession #noregrets #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Up and at it this morning! Got up an hour earlier than I would have so I could get my workout in before today's activities! With my tablet to stream my workout I just needed some space to do it! My legs are still shaky but I'm glad I got it done ๐Ÿ’ช And I'm well into my water for the day ๐Ÿ˜€ Now time for farm fun! #morningmotivation #morningworkout #21dayfix #lowerbody #legday #travel #last90dayschallenge #last90days #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself #hydrate
This is from last Sunday, September 30, 2018. The last day of the month. ๐Ÿ“… ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด For those of you who follow me may remember that I set a goal for myself for the month of September. โœ” ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด It was to do 100 push ups a day for a total of 3000, 1 mile walk for a total of 30 miles and lose 10 pounds. ๐Ÿš ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด Some of you may also remember I ended up with a severe sinus infection that took me out for a few days. ๐Ÿ‘ƒ ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด Needless to say I got behind on everything. The last Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the month I caught up my push ups on Sunday morning, before work, I did my last 100 and completed all 3000. ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด However on the 30th I was short 5.5 miles of my goal. I decided I was going to have to be short because I went to work at 7am and had to work until midnight. โŒ› ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด I realized by the time I got home it would be October 1st and there would be no way to make up the miles. However, I got done with the first part of my day early and took that time to walk 5.5.miles in the garage. I did not want to break a promise to myself so I crushed the last miles and completed the 30 for the month. ๐Ÿƒ ๐ŸŒด ๐ŸŒด The only thing I missed was that I lost 5 pounds not 10. The good thing about that is, this was a challenge to get me more consistent with exercising. My main focus was not losing the weight right now. I am calling it a win. ๐Ÿ† ๐ŸŒž ๐ŸŒž #igotthis #100to0 #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #legionofboom #wedothework #duespaid #backontrack #settheexample #bethe1 #usmcveteran #gruntlife #neversettle #keepmoving #keepyourpromisestoyourself #challengeyourself #believe #motivatedominate #imoldnowkeepup #oldmanstrength #thisisjustwaytoomuchfun #getafterit #crushingoals #tothetop #punchfailureintheface #standbytogetsome #setgoalsbitches #beastmode #getyourswoleon #ilikeitlikeit

Today was full of travel to Iowa to see my Memaw! So nice to be in cooler weather and see fall colors! But, I made sure to stay committed to the #last90days challenge. I hydrated throughout the day, listened to the @mrdavehollis live stream on my layover, did 2 miles on the elliptical plus walking through airports and such, and did my gratitude list with my #commit30 fitness planner. Not bad for a day that started at 4am! Tomorrow we go visit a farm ๐Ÿ˜€ #last90dayschallenge #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself #commitment #fall #Midwest #hydrate #travel

#last90days #day5 "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy." Name that movie?? Im so happy i am keeping this 90 day promise to myself. Im feeling so great. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช If you're doing the Last 90 Days, too, i highly recommend reading/audiobooking The 5 Second Rule along with it. They go great together! A match made in heaven! #keepyourpromisestoyourself #5secondrule #melrobbins #rachelhollis

There so many reasons I could have avoided my 30 minutes of exercise today. I let myself sleep in this morning (playing catch up from Tuesday night) and planned a workout for this afternoon. On the way to work I listened to the #risetogetherpodcast and was feeling good and motivated! Once I got to work, I leaned into my car to get my work bag and BAM! sudden sharp and searing pain down the left side of neck. It was a struggle to even lift my bag to walk inside. I didn't know how I was going to make it through the day examining patients, let alone exercise, but the universe is a funny thing. Today, I already had a scheduled physical therapy appt. I walked in, told my therapist (shout out to Ehren!) about my problem and he said, well do you mind if I work on that for a bit? Um, please do!!! So he did and I went back to work, with a very slow improvement but still presence through the afternoon. I walked around like a big dork with a heating pad stuck on my neck (thank you #thermacare !). I came home and said you know what? A bike ride will be totally fine for my neck, so I did that. Today, I could have said oh, I don't have to do this, I can restart tomorrow, but instead I chose to say Not Today Satan! And pushed through it! Make plans, not excuses!

Kicking off Day 4 the right way! I woke up before by 6am alarm this morning so I used my hour to enjoy a large cup of coffee and listened to podcasts to start off my day. The first one I listened to was the RISE together podcast, which was @mrdavehollis giving his keynote speech from their rise together conference this year. Hope everyone has an awesome Thursday!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ #Last90Days @msrachelhollis #day4 #keepyourpromisestoyourself #podcasts #growthmindset #coffeelover #christmasmuginoctober
