#tbt: In one of the challenges in the Tone It Up Bikini Series of 2014, we were encouraged to find and post a quote, phrase, or mantra that resonated with us. One of my choices for said prompt was “no bad days”, which is pretty self-explanatory {…albeit unrealistic}. The concept of “no zero days”, which I discovered via Tumblr earlier this week, is actually even better.  The idea? Do something–anything!–that gets you closer to your goals, dreams, or ideals every. single. day. Big, small, whatever–just do something that ultimately brings you closer to the person you want to be or the life you want to live.

Here’s an excerpt from the original post:

‘What’s a zero day? A zero day is when you don’t do a single fucking thing towards whatever dream or goal or want or whatever that you got going on. No more zeros. I’m not saying you gotta bust an essay out everyday, that’s not the point. The point I’m trying to make is that you have to make yourself, promise yourself, that the new SYSTEM you live in is a NON-ZERO system. Didn’t do anything all fucking day and it’s 11:58 PM? Write one sentence. One pushup. Read one page of that chapter. One. Because one is non zero.’

…Genius, right? I love it. ‘Skinny’ tips and life tips, all rolled into one.

Here’s to no zeros. ♡
