Healthy Holiday Monday Motivation!

Good morning and Happy Monday! We are having some STRONG thunderstorms right now. Woke me up much earlier than I needed. And looks like this is just the start. I had plans to run errands after work today, but if we are having thunderstorms, think I will come home instead.

Yesterday afternoon was the 31 Spring Product Premiere! Two theaters filled with excited 31 consultants. Check out the cover of the new spring catalog:

Here are some of the new products and patterns:

31 New Products and Patterns

Very excited to see all of the new items. I already have my eye on quiet a few. Consultants have an opportunity to order an “add-on” kit later this month to show off the new products and I will be ordering it! It contains 7 products in all, 6 are new styles and 3 contain new patterns.

Check out the beautiful poinsettia ornament I received in our 31 ornament swap:

Yesterday’s #HolidayA Instagram Challenge was LADIES DANCING and sadly I never saw any or came up with a photo. I will do better today – the topic is SPARKLE!

Today’s #Elf4Health challenge is drink your body weight in water. Being that I might float away if I did that, I think I will aim for HALF my body weight.

Let’s Get Motivated

I have said this before and I will say it again – I MISS WALKING. Seriously. I understand why the doctor wants me to wait, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Plus, my thighs are touching again. I need to get walking and take care of that. SOON! Here are 20 benefits of walking and I will add a 21st – Helps shrink thighs!

Here are some small changes that can help you lose weight. These are simple exchanges you can make and during the course of a year lose a little weight. Remember that if you lost 1/2 pound a week for a year, you would lose 26 pounds. That would work for me.

I loved this graphic. Very bold and true. You need all three to see results.

Need some musical motivation during the holidays? Check out this playlist from Meghann at Meals and Miles. I love holiday music!

Finally, I love Sparkpeople and found this pledge for the holidays. So many people get stressed during this time of the year trying to find the perfect presents, host the perfect party, and more. Just relax and breathe. Slow down and just enjoy.

How’s the weather in your area? What is motivating you this week? Do you make holiday playlists?

Enjoy your day!

  3. Weather here today is a bit gloomy. It rained yesterday but looks OK today. I imagine it’s just going to get colder and colder. Boo!

    I have a holiday playlist but not for fitness, just to listen to here at home and in the car.

    That ornament is sooo pretty! Have a great week.
