Motivation Monday | A Tune to Get You Moving

motivation monday - tunes to get you going - actively gemma

This week I wanted to do something a little different.  Usually I post a quote that I feel relates to my life in some way (and that motivates, of course), buuut I wasn't in the mood to scour the web for the "perfect" quote.  Instead, I'm just going to share a song that has been motivating me to get up and actually get things done this weekend.  I'm not sure if it's because I love the dancing in the music video so much, or because afrobeats music just has the ability to make anyone get up and move, but I've really been digging Reekado Banks' song, Chop Am.  

One thing I know for sure, is that it's a great reminder to me that I'll be in the DRC (The Democratic Republic of Congo) in a few short-ish weeks for the All-Africa Games. I've been feeling kinda jealous down watching all the snapchats of athletes heading to their respective training camps for Worlds, but knowing I have my own competition to focus on makes me remember that my time will come - with hard work and patience.

So, my Monday is starting with this song on repeat as I get pumped up for my workout.  

Enjoy the tunes and have a great Monday!


P.S.  I'm always looking for new music to add to my workout playlist.  I'd love to know what songs get you going!
