Hey, guess what day it is?! It’s Tuesday and it’s time to get back to doing the #unsexy.
I’m just getting back into the daily grind and have a Nashville hangover….and, I don’t mean from partying lol. Ok, I maybe partied a little….one night….but I digress. #justkeepinitreal #workhardplayhard
But, seriously…..you know what I’m talkin’ about….that hangover effect after an amazing experience or trip and you’re like….Ok, so now what?? Do I really have to go back to the normal grind??? Back to life….back to reality (ok, who’s singing the song….I know you were an 80s/90s soul child like me if you are and just so you know we can totally be friends!!) And, how do I DOOOOOOOO and BEEEEEEE all the things I wanna DO and BE like RIGHT NOW.
I spent most of Sunday traveling and sleeping (seriously, they say you can’t catch up on sleep. that’s legit.) and reflecting on the plane. I’m a TOTAL note taker and filled the better part of a notebook with tons of nuggets and ideas and I feel ready to FLY even higher. BUT, it’s also overwhelming. Like where do I start when there’s SO much I wanna do for my team and to help people and to work on my own health & fitness WHILE focusing first and foremost on God and my family?!?
How can I possibly do it all?
By staying true to myself ~ keep finding and staying in my truth ~ staying in my lane (i’m gonna talk more about this one ‘cuz this post would get too long if i did right now!) ~ by doing the UNSEXY ~ and focusing on the next 24 hours….that’s how. #TodayMatters
There were so many things I took away from Summit and I’m going to be sharing as much as I can with ya’ll ‘cuz I’ve said it before but what we take in at the event is always more about people and helping and supporting others than it is about selling a product or making money. It’s about how to become better leaders. It’s about how to inspire and how to stay inspired ourselves….’cuz straight up motivation doesn’t last. It’s about how to just be you. It’s about adding value to someone else’s day. It’s about giving. It’s about doing the things we don’t want to do so we can later live our lives by our own design. It’s about doing the unsexy, mundane, seemingly unimportant things every day, day after day, like getting up early instead of sleeping in….like eating egg whites and veggies for breakfast instead of the donuts tempting us in the break room….like spending a half hour working instead instead of watching TV…..like reading a personal improvement book instead of a romance novel so we can finally overcome our self-limiting beliefs
It’s about being a part of something bigger.
But, being able to do all that comes with sacrifice and discipline and as mentioned above, doing the unsexy things.
So, I’m slowly getting my BUTTOOSKY (here I go makin’ up words again) back in gear! I LOVED Nashville. I loved the foods (ha, when we had time to eat ~ i had a spicy tuna sushi burrito from a food bus called Funk Seoul Brother that was crazy good! and, a few Nashville locals waiting in line said it’s THE best food bus in town! if you’re ever there, highly recommend!). I loved the drinks (there were these classic margaritas at this taco joint…I believe it was called Tacos Sexto and if you’re ever in Nashville, it’s by Music City Center and the Omni Hotel….that were seriously legit! i think quite possibly the best margaritas i’ve ever had 🙂 ) And, I absolutely LOVED my Country Heat Live certification class and the other live workout I did but my knee and foot are telling me to take a few more days to rest. #imclearlynot20anymore #anyhoo So, in case you’re wondering, I’m jumping back into PiYo hopefully in the morning to finish my 2nd month, I’m dialing my nutrition back in and then I can’t WAIT to start Country Heat and follow the program to a tee! AND, I’m looking for 10 women to join me in a test group where we are gonna commit to LEGIT following it with #noexcuses! AND, I’ve extended an offer for a chance at a free kit (i got a FREE kit for getting certified and i wanna pay it forward!) to anyone who joins a private coaching group with me this month! I haven’t had so much FUN working out since Zumba and the results from the official corporate test group are pretty dang exciting!! I’d love to learn more about your goals and see if this would be a good fit! You can fill out this application with absolutely no obligation ~ it’s just a way for me to learn more about what you’re looking for, what your health & fitness goals maybe are and then help YOU decide if this is maybe something that sounds like something you should try!
I found this quote a while ago and it’s so inspiring to me. “If you want to fly, give you everything that weighs you down.” And, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I don’t mean weight when I say that. If you do struggle with weight, it’s just a result of what’s really weighing you down. When you find it and give it up, THEN you can really learn how to fly….and, I would love to help you try to find it! I plug myself into things and learn and grow every day to learn how and it would be selfish of me to keep it all to myself! 😉 So, I seriously have to ask….what are YOU waiting for? Don’t wait as long as I did. And, if one of the things holding you back is the investment in yourself, think about this ~ what’s REALLY expensive is that thing that doesn’t work.
Peace out for a Tuesday!
What’s your UNSEXY for the day?
What mundane, unexciting, seemingly unimportant thing or things did YOU do today to get you closer to your goals?!?
And, your bonus today!
You may have been following me on IG or FB while I was in Nashville and know I used something called Lyft instead of cabs or the shuttle to get around. I’m seriously in love with this concept. It’s a bunch of people who are independent ambassadors/consultants who drive their own vehicles and act as taxi cab drivers. All you gotta have is a smart phone and download their app! It’s way less expensive. Every driver I had was super nice, friendly and helpful. Every driver comes with a driver rating that you can see before you choose them. You get text updates and the app itself tells you where they are and how soon they will be able to pick you up. You schedule your pickup on the app, they pick you up, and then at the end you pay via PayPal (at least I did ‘cuz that’s the easiest for me). AND, the best part is you can decide on a whim that you need a LYFT and I always had a driver within like 5 minutes. Now, that’s legit. It’s super similar to Uber ~ In fact I learned a few things and take these with a grain of salt ‘cuz I didn’t research myself to find out but one of my drivers was a founding ambassador for both Lyft and Uber and I don’t think he’d have a reason to lie since he still contracts with both and as far as I can tell doesn’t make more at Lyft than he does Uber. But, he said that there are a few differences between the two. Lyft does a more extensive background check of their drivers and their vehicles are inspected and put at a higher standard of year, make and model. If anyone knows otherwise, I’d love to know so I can post a retraction on that 🙂 Anyhoo, of course I’m not responsible if you try it and don’t have a good experience but I’m willing to take a risk to recommend it anyway for the next time you’re in a bigger city lol! OH, and on a side note ~ DUIs are down like CRAZY! AND, totally a side note….did you know between 80 to 100 people move to Nashville EVERY DAY?!? That’s crazy. I really wish I could sing.
