Take time to stop and smell the roses...

Always remember to enjoy the little things...I try to sneak a few minutes (or a hour if allowed) on a sunny afternoon to enjoy my rose garden. I find something so peaceful there...maybe the sun on my face, the smell of the roses or the fact that I shave succeeded in finding a few moments by myself. :) I was especially pleased this afternoon to find my single blue rose blooming as I get only one every other year. Not sure why this particular rose pleases me so...maybe because it reminds me to take the time to enjoy the beauty in the simple things and time passes so quickly. Remember to enjoy the little things as they happen, don't miss then waiting for the big things to happen.

Take it outside

The sun is out, breeze is warm, take your workout to the grass and
trees. Soak up the sun (with proper sun protection of course!) make
some vitamin D and strengthen your mind and your body while you
breathe the fresh air of summer!
Bodyweight training shines for outdoor new suspension
trainer hanging from a tree branch provides opportunity for a whole
body workout. There is always lunges, squats and sprints on the grass,
push ups, sit ups or a brisk walk around the neighborhood.
I find the more time I spend outside and the more active I am the
fewer cravings I have and enjoy much healthier choices for all meals. Continue to fuel and hydrate well! I carry my Bean Kanteen full of water everywhere and fuel up with healthy snacks every 3-4 hours.
Whatever you do enjoy the day and the moment while you continue to find new ways to enjoy a fit lifestyle.

Great workout this morning....pushed hard on the cardio session with the nudging of Motiontraxx again. Hit the weights for legs and glutes! Can't wait to try the new suspension trainer this afternoon for uppers/back and core! Nothing like mixing up the program for a burst of motivation!
