Monday Motivation

Motivation to get out of bed at 5am this morning came in the form of a huge spider on my bedroom ceiling. It wasn’t thaaat big, but it was literally right above my head when I opened my eyes & I was freaking out that it was going to descend down onto my face. Not gonna lie, I probably would have reset my alarm if I hadn’t seen it. Although I did wake up at 5, I didn’t do the BBG Week 1-Legs workout like I planned to but I’m still happy that I got out of bed then. I will do it tonight once it cools down outside, I promise!

I used the extra time this morning to fill in all my planners for the week. Yes, I use 3 planners to keep track of my life! IMG_7776The big floral one (Erin Condren -> OBSESSED!) is an every day planner & also includes my scheduled runs. I also use a running journal, which isn’t pictured, to keep track of how much I actually do run. The teal one (Kate Spade) is a food journal -> this one is really important as I continue to transition to a plant-based diet because I need to be sure I’m getting enough protein, etc. so I make it a point to track it daily. I find using a food app is too cumbersome which is why I don’t go that route. The small floral one (Lilly Pulitzer) is my blog post planner! Man, my life would be a mess without them!

I’m a visual person -> I enjoy looking at pictures with pretty fonts & motivating quotes (as you can probably already tell). This morning I took the extra time I had from waking up early to also look up some motivating quotes for to get myself pumped up to have a good Monday & even better week. Here are a few of my favorites today. Enjoy 🙂

    Well at least with the spider there you got to actively accomplish one of your motivational memes. I think you have met the goal of jumping out of bed in the morning lol.

  8. OMG I HATE SPIDERS. I live in an old farm house and we have an in-ground pool that sits in front of our barn. I accidentally left one of those noodle things in the pool out of laziness and swam the next day…only to find TWO HUGE WOLF SPIDERS LOUNGING INSIDE OF THE NOODLE. I’m not even going to get into how I got rid of them (it involved drowning them with the skimmer). I have never seen something that gross close up.

  10. I love quotes like that too! There’s something about them, on those pretty floral backgrounds, they just make me happy! I’ve head of a lot of people who love the Erin Condren planner, I might have to get one. I’ve been trying to go electronic with my calendar because I’ve recently switched to a smaller purse and a planner doesn’t really fit (I know, #firstworldproblems) but I feel like I’m missing out on all the beautiful planers and the fulfillment I get from actually writing something down on paper!

    1. You should totalllly invest in Erin Condren if you are going to get a new planner. They take about 4-6 weeks to come in though which is a bummer. So funny about why you are switching to electronic, I make sure that my purses are big enough to hold my planners… serious #firstworldproblems hahaha!
