This means many things but in the fitness community it means, never miss a Monday workout. I’ve been thinking about this allot lately and to me this has another connotation. Never miss a Monday meaning….never miss being fully present in the day.
How many of us complain about Mondays? I hear allot of “yuck it’s Monday again”, “ oh joy back to work”. “Lord I hate Mondays”.
Today I pledge to never miss a Monday. To always be present in the day and be thankful that I woke up alive and able to move all my limbs. To be thankful that I have a job to go to and had a bed to sleep in on Sunday night and a roof over my head.
I was tired. Monday kicked my ass. I didn’t really wanna go to the gym, but I got there, put the headphones in, & went to work. Did the warm up of 20 push ups/20 tricep rope extensions 3 times ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND DIDNT TAKE A BREAK AT ALL. didn’t even drop to my knees for the push-ups! That was an instant confidence boost. I went heavy today & just gave it my all. I channeled my inner @baelsberry
For my Monday workout.
Completed day 51. I’m finally on that last week or crush60. I’m giving it my all. It’s thanksgiving & I know that going home is going to make it tough to workout but I have some Dumbbells at my parents and a treadmill so I’m going to see what I can do.
#CRUSHFITMONDAY brought to you by Mass Effect. I started my journey with one simple goal: get fit for my children. I never intended my journey to take the turn that it did.
I joined Tumblr with the idea of following people in the fitness Industry and those everyday people who just grind hard to provide me with motivation.
What I found was @crushfit. I bought Crush60 and I decided to document my journey. Through that process I started to interact with total strangers. Which if you knew me is very new to me. I’m the type of person who doesn’t share personal information with others. This has brought me out of my shell and I’m forever grateful.
As I started to interact with everyone, I noticed that there were people who actually care enough to follow my journey through the highs and the lows. This validated my progress so far.
I started the NEVER MISS A MONDAY tradition because for me, getting the first workout in for the week, sets the tone for the rest of my week. I knew that if I wanted to stay consistent I could never miss my Monday workouts.
So I challenge you to take the moment and think about why you are doing this. Then I want you to use that as motivation to get you in the gym and start your week on fire!
We are capable of great things. Decide what it is that you most want and do whatever it takes to achieve it. If it means 5am workouts then make the needed sacrifices. You will feel better in the long run when you look back and see just how far you’ve come. We may bitch and moan about the struggles we face, but it’s because of the dark times in our lives that we ultimately reach our successes.
So guys, GO FOR BROKE, LEAVE NO STONE UNTURNED! REACH FOR THE STARS. YOU ARE WORTH IT!
