Turning 30 and a Motivation Checkup

Motivation Checkup before Working Out

As I am sitting down on this beautiful Monday morning to write about motivation, I am finding that I have none. Yesterday was my 30th birthday. I had a fantastic day! But health-wise it was not so great…

Cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Good thing they were made from scratch, with no yucky stuff in them. Chinese buffet with a tall Coke for lunch. It was SO good. And yet, kinda gross at the same time. After a while, even the cheat meals that I look forward to aren’t as good as they once were. For dinner I made a homemade Italian Wedding Soup. It was so good!

My drink of choice back then was a double short caramel vanilla latte. Let me break that down for those of you who don’t know the lingo.
