{Day 3} Protect this House: I Will.

by Katelyn Block on July 3, 2012 · 10 comments

Hey there Day Three! Guess who’s sippin on some homemade goodness this morning?

This girl. Last night, my aunt gave me an early birthday gift and was spot on. She knows me so well.

I woke up super hungry, so a workout was out of the question. I’ve noticed that now that I’ve been doing the high-intensity interval workouts, every-other-day is usually the best way for me to exercise. On the in-between days, I do something recreational like biking, a jog, or paddleboarding (!!). Because I’ll be doing some activity in the sun later, a hefty breakfast was in order.

If this doesn’t hold me over, I don’t know what will. Celebrating a day early! Oat bran, Vega vanilla protein, sunbutter, almond milk, blueberries, raspberries. So. full.

Looking for some motivation today?

Goosebumps, right? I stumbled upon this video via my headquarters at FitFluential. I love the mantra: Protect this House. I will. The House could be your team, your family, your body, your health. Whatever it is, protect it. It takes hard work, but you and I, all of us, can do it.

Signing off! Homegirl is ready to hit the road and get some sweaty sunshine.

What motivates you?
How will you be celebrating the 4th of July?

loveee that you are enjoying your vacation, but still getting work out in, by finding fun recreational activities to do – i feel like we often overlook or forget about those choices/options!

It’s true! I have so much available that I don’t just sit on the beach all day anymore.

I’m Canadian, so we had our big celebration on the first of July for Canada Day!

I am motivated by progress and endorphins.

I’ve been motivated by all the Olympic and Paralympic ads on TV recently. When I girl with no legs can play volleyball I have no excuses. And I’m hooked on exercise endorphins.

Right now I only have one plan for tomorrow: Fro yo, I’m excited.
