This may be my favorite Motivation Monday of the whole year. Not only do we pause to remember those who gave their all so the rest of us could enjoy our freedom, we also get to celebrate the unofficial start of summer.
I hope the long weekend leading up to this important holiday has already been filled with sun, fun, good barbecue and even better times with family and friends. Since I want you to get back into the fun as quickly as possible, I offer this short “wish list” for you on Memorial Day 2017:
1) Take a moment to stop and remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that the rest of us could live in this wonderful land we call home.
2) Fit some fitness into your holiday fun. Maybe there’s a group exercise class you can take before heading to today’s BBQ, or take a long walk when you get home from the fun. If you’re heading to the beach, there’s no reason you can’t take a long walk and bang out some planks and push-ups right on your beach blanket.
3) If you’re enjoying time outside, don’t forget to apply and re-apply the sunscreen!
4) Whether you’re celebrating the holiday indoors or out, stay hydrated. If you plan to drink alcohol, make sure to designate a driver to ensure everyone gets home safely.
I close by wishing all my readers a very safe and Happy Memorial Day. Here’s to the summer ahead and all the chances we’ll have to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
