Focus and Determination - No Excuses!!

See the man in the picture above?? Look at this man's face!!! Look in his eyes?? What do you see? When I first saw this picture, I thought, "holy crap, he means business, no excuses!" I want to ALWAYS have that kind of focus and determination while doing my workouts. His eyes are on the prize!! Making it count!!

This man is my trainer Rob, y'all!!! He is hardcore and he certainly practices what he preaches. Apart from the obvious good looks (yes ladies, eye candy at it's best - he's gonna make me pay for writing that), he is obviously and honestly passionate about what he does and he does it very well.

I feel like I am at a very pivotal point in my journey. It is essential that I maintain the type of focus and determination displayed above by Rob, not only during my workouts but throughout all aspects of this journey. This is my new challenge: staying focused, motivated and determined for the duration of this journey.

Keeping my focus is crucial to my success on this journey. I have to stay on top of this..we all do in order to meet our set goals. We can't expect a plant to grow if we don't nourish, water and take care of it. Same thing here. I've got to make sure I stick with my workouts, stay on top of eating healthy foods and remember to take care of ME as well.

Taking care of me, means doing all I can to reduce and/or eliminate any and all stresses or situations which cause stress! Making and taking the time for myself, even if it's just an hour, just to sit and reflect and/or relax. I haven't been going to my Sunday yoga sessions in quite a while and I think it's time to start that up again.

Anyway, here we are, about to start yet another week (time is just flying by) and I want to do all I can to make each week a great one! So that's it for now, enjoy your Sunday and all the best with the journey this week!

Until next time...

Joania, he does look like he means business. Determination at its best. That is a word that we should all use to describe ourselves - determined.

Make it a great day!

That is my kind of "candy." LOL!

You can certainly sense his focus and determination.

Keep your eyes on the prize Joania!

GOOD LORD, THAT MAN IS BEAUTIFUL and obviously he knows his stuff - look how well you're doing with his training!!!

Okay, that out of the way, I agree that it's very important to stay focused. I have to constantly remind myself of the "whys" and other reasons for getting healthy..that helps me to stay focused...
Did I mention that Rob is hot!!! Okay just in case I didn't.

Now this is the tpye of "CANDY" that we can have and not worry about the calories!! LOL!!! His determination and focus is obvious, if he could pass on an nonce of that to you (which I think he already has), you'll be fine!! Keep up the great work!

I think he might scare me! Boy I bet he doesn't let you get away with anything does he?

Joania said...

@Diane, Fit to the Finish - he's really sweet and supportive, not scary at all, but YOU'RE RIGHT, he doesn't let me get away with much!!:)

Hello eye candy!! Good thing it's 0kcal :>

I took my first "Body Healing" class this past weekend and am falling in love with it. I thinks classes as such are great for unwinding the mind and body on weekends. Relaxation is so important!!
