What to Do When You Wake Up On The Wrong Side of the Bed

What to Do When You Wake Up On The Wrong Side of the Bed is to get back in the bed as quick as possible.  My tip that works for me everytime is first to focus my mind.  You have to focus on the purpose of your goal if you plan to get back on track.  Working out first thing in the morning is not always easy, but I position myself for success by placing my clothes in the same spot every day.  Nothing new for anyone there but maintaining a positive attitude toward your workout allows me to find my self out of bed in a much better mood.  Have one Hale of day.  See you tomorrow

Maintain Your Motivation: My Best Tip | Gym Talk

Maintain Your Motivation is not always natural but today’s tip is to create a process that forces you to develop the habit of consistency.

What’s your practice that motivates you?

How Do You Cardio? | Gym Talk

This weeks challenge is to share how you cardio. Since it’s winter here in Elgin, IL I cardio 30-45 min on the treadmill twice per week and split my training between Friday elliptical and stationary bike. In the spring and summer when I can get out and run more efficiently I am sure that split will get changed to running and biking. Bring on the spring!

Gym Talk| Happy Rosca De Reyes (Kings Ring)

Happy Rosca de Reyes to my friends and family celebrating the king’s ring. Today’s gym talk I share my first Rosca De Reyes experience. The pastry was sweet but not too cake like. I would taste it again.  I could not exactly figure out what the crust was made of, but hey I can always google that.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the celebration.
