Monday Motivation: I’ve always liked this quote. However, especially today it speaks to me. Today is my birthday. A day to look back and be proud of accomplishments, learn from failures, regroup, celebrate, and begin anew, hopefully armed with more wisdom. But really, if you think about it, EVERY day is an opportunity for a new start. Anyone can start from now and orchestrate a different ending. Every day we all have the opportunity of a new starting point. Every damn day! Wherever you are in your journey IS a starting point. And if every place is a starting point, then in a way every day is our birthday. How will you celebrate life today?

Birthday Festivities!

“Keep calm and be crazy. Laugh love and live it up because this is the oldest you’ve been and the youngest you’ll ever be again!” Feeling blessed. Pre-birthday celebration spa afternoon w the hubby. Not fitness related but definitely good for the soul! And anyway…it’s my bday (almost) so I’ll post what I want!

MORNING MOTIVATION: Good morning, all! Today (and every day) let's be encouragers. This also goes for how we interact and talk to ourselves.

MONDAY MOTIVATION: One of my favorite philosophers.  Dr. Seuss has plenty to teach us about the importance of believing in yourself and doing the work.  His stories are a love song to the adventure that is life.

MORNING MOTIVATION: This woman wants to be strong and healthy. I do it for myself and my family. My goal is to be around a long time for my kids and husband and to be able to enjoy those years with them in a healthy body. I also want to feel good on the inside as well as the outside. When I am fit and strong, I feel good on the inside and feel beautiful on the outside. I think if you FEEL beautiful, you look beautiful. Share why you do it!

Are you REALLY awesome at eating cookies but not so awesome at eating oatmeal? Try these high fiber banana oatmeal drops - 3 ingredients!  Simple, healthy and tasty!  I can’t remember where I saw this, but I wanted to try it with my own tweaks. Mix 2 bananas with 1 cup regular oats (chop them up a little), and add some dark chocolate chips. I also decided to add cinnamon and nutmeg (because I add cinnamon to practically everything - yum!). Bake for 15 mins at 350 F.  Perfect for when you are feeling snacky or want a bit of a treat.  Notice that I did not call them cookies.  That sets up an expectation that, in my opinion, will not be met.  They are a tasty healthy treat though…my kids even liked them.  They are great the next day (toast them) and just perfect if you need to take your breakfast to-go.  And yes, there is a big bite out of the one in front! I was eager to try them.

Did you know that red bell peppers make you burn more calories?! *According to recent research, sweet red peppers can activate thermogenesis and increase metabolic rate. Someone get me a red pepper STAT!More reasons we should eat red bell peppers:1) They have twice the vitamin C and 9 times the vitamin A of their green cousins.2) They are an excellent source of vitamin B6 and magnesium.  This B6-Magnesium combo has been shown to decrease anxiety.  Also, B6 is a natural diuretic, so eat ‘em up to reduce bloating and prevent hypertension!3) They are packed with Lycopene!  In fact, red peppers come in just under tomatoes as one of the veggies highest in lycopene, which has been shown to aid in the prevention of cancer.Although the health benefits of red peppers are strongest when raw, try stuffing them!  Dress up this lady in red with ground turkey mixed with spinach, zucchini, quinoa, and a little tomato sauce. Yum!
