I really liked the message I received in my inbox from Tone It Up today. I signed up for the Tone It Up plan quite some time ago, and always enjoy seeing what inspirational messages Katrina and Karena have to share with their followers!
Today for Motivation Monday set your goals, intentions & motivations for the week. Promise yourself a fantastic five days of movement & improvement!
Write down your scheduled workouts & ‘me time’
Make a check-list of your to-dos
Write 5 intentions for this week. How will you react to certain situations and how will you feel everyday (grateful, happy, energetic, motivated).
I love the idea of setting clear intentions of what I want to achieve and what kind of attitude I’m going to maintain while reaching my goals this week! And I promise to have an awesome week!
My scheduled workouts and “me time:”
Monday – 5:30am, 20 minutes of cardio, chest and triceps
Tuesday – 5:30am, legs and core
Wednesday – 5:30am, 30 minutes of cardio, supplemental shoulder workout
Thursday – 12:oopm, 30 minutes of cardio, back and biceps

Saturday – posing practice in the AM, mid-day (sleep in! me time!) workout, shoulders and core
Sunday – REST! MEEEEE time!!
My to do’s:
Order my suit for the competition!
Confirm posing practice for this weekend.
My 5 intentions for the week:
I will stay motivated and energized this week!
I will not let my work life get me too stressed out.
I will start each day prepared.
I will put my all into my workouts.
I will make each day count.
Another trick I use to help me set my intentions is visualization. I try to spend a few minutes visualizing the next day right before I fall asleep at night. I imagine myself jumping out of bed when my alarm clock goes off, having tons of energy at the gym, and having a smooth and stress-free morning. I think through my plans for the day and how I will be prepared to handle negative or challenging situations that come my way. I truly believe that positive thinking can move mountains, so having these thoughts in my mind as I fall asleep is so powerful! Try it! 🙂
What are your intentions for this week? How will you achieve a week of “movement and improvement?”
