There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Hi Ladies, Have you ever felt like you do not want to get up on Mondays? How about feeling tired and unmotivated to go to work, eat healthy or workout? Or are Mondays a new start for you? Do you find that Monday is the day that you start a new goal, you eat right, workout and get everything done?

I know that motivation can come from all sorts of places. You can look at images of people who inspire you, listen to songs, videos, podcasts…etc. One thing that works for me is reading motivational quotes. I don’t know what it is but when I read a good quote, it fires up something inside of me. I need a little boost on Mondayss to get me moving, get me up and ready for the week. I need to remind myself of my goals, dreams and desires. SO Motivation Monday seems to be the best thing to call it!

Mondays are often looked at as a new beginner. There are proven statistics that people will set a new goal on a Monday than any other day of the week. Why? Because in our society, Monday is the first day of the week. The typical American starts work on a Monday and has the weekend off to relax. Monday is start to a school week. Monday is the most hated day because it means the start of something that people dread.

After a restful day on Sunday,  I will start (enter new goal)…

What is Monday to you? How do you get out of that Monday slump? How do you get motivated to start your week? Do you find that you set new goals on  Mondays? What helps you achieve them during the week?

    Hi Flavia! I was wondering if you show adaptations for people who don’t have access to gym equipment. I’m thinking of your Curvalicious DVDs.

      Hi Alysann,
      Yes, she does! Flavia shows complete home workout options in both of her programs. 🙂
      All the best!

    I am finding it harder to find motivation all the time! I definitely need some motivation! I think part of it is just this deep freeze Winter that we are having! My life is also very busy!! I am a small business owner, with 2 mattress stores. My husband is legally blind, totally blind in one eye, and his vision is getting worse!! So I have to do more, like cook, dishes, laundry, etc… I do not have time!! I drive about 100 miles a day 6 days a week! Sunday is my only day off, and sometimes it really isn’t either! I did clean my house yesterday! I did actually get in a short workout this morning!! I am not a morning person either!! I used to always do my exercise in the evenings after work(that was perfect for me!), but that is impossible with my schedule now! I know I really need to exercise more!! At least more days a week! At least I am starting the week off with exercise! I definitely feel much better when I exercise! I do like seeing results of exercising and eating right! That usually motivates me to keep going!

      Hi Aleta.
      My goodness you have a lot on your plate! I would suggest if you ever have just 10 or 15 minutes of free time use that time to do several rounds of supersets such as a set of jump squats followed immediately by push ups or lunges with chair dips. That is an easy way to get some kind of exercise in. The key is to really put serious intensity in to it–I’m talking huffing and puffing for that small amount of time. Sometimes I’ll do HIIT where I will do burpees or fast jump jacks for 30 seconds and pace between intervals. There you have it! I hope this helps 🙂 Good luck to you!
