Not so motivated today? I see you.

Where my people at who aren’t so motivated today? 🙋‍♀️ I see you & I feel you. When you aren’t feeling it, it’s so dang hard to get going. Most of you know that I have a promise to myself to move for at least 30 minutes every single day. Yesterday I did 74 min & was super proud. Today, I didn’t even want to open the front door.

But I did.

Habits: Are You REALLY In Control Of Your Day?

Are your habits controlling you or are you in control?Most of us have grand dreams, but it seems like there’s not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Am I right? Life is a balancing act.
