What’s Your Hurdle Moment?

Quote of the Day: “Challenge is inevitable. Growth is optional.” I’ve spent a lot of time walking and driving around my neighborhood during this pandemic. Listening to music is great, but can sometimes get really repetitive… plus I can’t sing on my walks (well, I guess I could, but I would be that person singing out loud). I’ve found that listening to a podcast is a way better use of my time. Podcasts can be inspiring, motivating, and educational… if you choose the right ones.

Interviewing into the Real World: Drew

Quote of the day: “Self-care is not an expense, it’s an investment.” I’m back with another interview! Today I am interviewing a very special person, Drew.

Awhile ago I asked him how he stays motivated to workout everyday. He said: “I feel better when I get exercise and to prove to myself I have the…

How I Stay Motivated to Workout

In my last post I mentioned how I workout around 5x a week. I don’t think 5 days is too intense. In fact, I think it is the perfect amount. I think if I went every single day, I’d get burnt out very easily. Working out has really just become a part of my daily routine. Obviously I wasn’t always like this. I’d say middle of senior year of high school is when I really started working out because my mom started to as well. Ever since then I’ve been able to motivate myself and make working out a really big part of my life…it’s…
