A few months back, I tried to add some structure to my blog by divvying the days up into special categories. Monday was going to be all sorts of motivational things, Tuesday was for random tidbits of interest that I found floating in cyberspace. Somewhere along the way, this idea got thrown by the wayside and I continued on into random blogging oblivion. Now I, being super Type-A, need structure in my life. I find that I struggle to put whatever happens to be on my brain in words, unless it’s revolving around an overarching theme.
That said, I am going to attempt to bring back some thematic days so I have a focal point for all my thoughts and my readers have some idea of what to expect when they read this blog.
While the jury is still out as to how I want the week to be structured, I am definitely on board with Mondays centering around inspiration and motivation. Because I usually choose the weekends as my time for rest, I have a tendency to feel very ‘blah’ by the time Monday rolls around. Couple that with the start of another work week and I find myself really dreading Mondays. I’m hoping that by focusing on pictures, stories, and videos that are positive and uplifting, I can pull myself out of the funk that is the “Mondays”. After all, who wants to start the beginning of the week in a bad mood, when it can instead be viewed as a fresh start?
So, without further ado, I introduce to you the inaugural Motivational Monday post. Again.
Sometimes you just need a pep talk:
Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or have been exercising for years, love your body every step of the way.
Inspiration from around the world:
- 15 stories of people in India who are changing lives
- A British teenager’s bucket list in the face of cancer
- The amazing attitude from the first surviving quadruple amputee in the Iraq War
Make a conscious decision to be who you want to be.

Food For Thought: What do you think of my idea of having some themed days? Is there a particular theme you would like for me to dedicate a day to? Let me know!
