Find Something You're Passionate About

Today's Motivation:

That Julia was a wise woman, and I'm not just referring to her crackerjack cooking skills.  She had a way with words.  Just Google "Julia Child's quotes" and you'll easily find about a hundred different examples of her quirky personality and witty philosophy on food and drink.  In fact, she is responsible for one of my favorite quotes of all time:  "People who love to eat are always the best people."  Truer words have never been spoken.

As for this quote, I find it applicable to every aspect of my life.  It's hard not to burn out on something that you do every day.  Whether it's working, volunteering, painting, working out, blogging, running, music, fashion, or cooking, you have to consistently endeavor to find new elements that pique your interest in order to fuel your passion.  With cooking, I do this by constantly challenging myself to create new recipes.  With working out, Scott and I change up my workouts every few weeks and incorporate new moves as frequently as possible (see ring dip hold below - ouch).  What works for you?

Today's Workout:

Leg Raise with Hip Lift
Side Bend

Overhead Press
Band Assisted Pull-Ups

FYI:  Ring Dip Hold = Hard as Hell.   It was my first attempt today and let's just say I am going to have to work on those.  I might have made it 20 seconds, but I think that's a stretch.

Step Up
Ring Dip Hold
Back Raise
TRX Face Pull
