Routine Building & Keeping Motivated

Thursday, January 23, 2014

I picked up my first pair of reading glasses today...

Darn, the pictures are coming in sideways!
I ordered HEALTHY with my Lovely Lunch Ladies group today...collard greens, black beans and water, then tea! Later, I changed for an outdoor winter walk with a friend.

I dusted off my dumbbells and started my arm reps. I'm keeping them on the kitchen counter everyday with a daily checklist. I'm not good with my arm weights. This should do it!

My dinner was super TASTY tonight. I cooked quinoa, sundried tomatoes, spinach and garlic in a pan with a little salt and pepper....soooo good.

I also prepared chicken by using a simple spice rub over boneless skinless chicken breast and popped them in the oven. My husband is working from home tonight and I brought his healthy meal up to the den. Then I cut up a 1/2 breast into my quinoa-veggies dish for me with my tall glass of water. I've been trying to eat slowly and be more mindful as I eat. I take time to drink water in between bites and I like to eat when it is quiet. My very pleasant dish...

I packed up the rest of the seasoned chicken breast into a glass container for lunches. Always good to have extra baked chicken breasts around!

I'm already looking forward to tomorrow's zumba class!

I feel good when I do cardio and sweat because I feel like I'm melting off the fat.

I'm impressed with anyone working out in the cold this winter. We've been lucky in California so far... this winter it's been more like spring weather...warm with blue skies. This image is for all of you working out in the cold!

    Great pick on the glasses - you look great !

Love the motivation booster - "Summer bodies are earned in the winter"! It is -40C here and keeping the motivation is hard. I get up with the desire to go through the day and keeping up with my training plan - without my printed training plan on a calendar and a define goal (I signed up for a couple of races) I think it would be more difficult. So true - at the end (of the day) I am always happy I did it!

Way to go on your goals... and the quinoa dinner! - I love that too... (That looks like the dinner I will have tonight! emoticon )

    I love your last picture! It's been SOOOO cold here in Philly and I just feel like curling up under my blanket, but I know I'll feel better in the spring knowing that I've been at it all winter!
