Hey lovelies! Steve, Tyson and I are getting ready to head up to the cottage this morning for a few days of hiking, relaxing and being around family. There are around 16 of us going, most of them being cousins of Steve which I think is so cool. We have such a great time when we get together and Tyson will have a friend to play with while he’s there. Lucy is a 95lb 8 month old Daniff (great dane x mastiff) and I think they’ll get along swimmingly.
The lovely Meg who blogs over at A Dash of Meg
and simply oozes positivity
hosts something every Friday called ‘High Five Friday’
It’s a chance for everyone to celebrate their accomplishments, big or small. Since I’m trying to be more positive
and surround myself with positive things I thought I would take time out to recognize some accomplishments some people at my gym have made and that I’ve made.
Last week I came up with a workout challenge for the bootcampers called The Powerhouse 99 Challenge.
It is brutal. It is pretty much all bodyweight exercises with some static holds thrown in. It took us the full class to complete and left us dripping in sweat. (I will be posting this challenge early next week for all you guys to try)
I want to give a big high five to everyone that pushed themselves through it. It was tough but sooooo
worth it for how awesome we felt once we finished it.
I also want to give a special high five to Rachael. She completed my 21 burpee/squat challenge which is 220 burpees and 220 squats. She powered through it in under 20 minutes!
I’m also going to give myself a high five for sticking to my nutrition plan. I made it through 4 weeks with no deviations and am really proud of myself. I can definitely see changes in myself and am excited to start up my new phase after I get back from the cottage.
Everyone has something to be proud. Whether it be personally, professionally or spiritually. It doesn’t have to be something big, but take time out to recognize the things you have accomplished this week.
So tell me, what are you giving yourself a high five for this week?
