Motivation Monday!

Motivation Monday

I'm back from Sin City!  And yeah...being in the city with endless buffets and drinks galore, I need some motivation and I need it in a bad way.  I sad to say that my working out last week...yeah, that didn't happen.  I do have to say I have good reason, though.  The gym at my hotel?  Not free.  Yeah, you pay $20 a day for that.  And it was crappy, too, so I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much to walk on a treadmill.  And the hotel floor?  You couldn't pay me to lay on that floor to do crunches.  I did find a walking path, though, and I skipped a session on Thursday and managed to work out.  And then negate my entire workout with dessert at the Bellagio buffet. was worth it.  The end result?  I'm sure I gained like 10 lbs the entire week.  And I feel completely like crap after all of it. 

So it's good to be home.  Home-cooked meals, my bed, my routine.  So this week I have to kick my own ass and get it into gear. 

My plan this week?  Try  my best to eat as well as possible and work out daily.  I did get to walk about four miles on Sunday and eat a nice dinner cooked by T.  And we have our personal trainer on Wednesday and Thursday.  And man, it's going to suck, but I need to get my butt kicked.  I can feel it. 

So that's my motivation this week:  to undo the damage done from last week.   What about you?  You know the drill...just write a post about what's motivating you this week, leave a comment with a link to your post, and I'll link you up!

Happy Monday, everyone!

  1. 20 bucks a day?? Seriously for that kind of money they better have one heck of a set up along with an immaculately clean floor..

  2. Sometimes you need that little digression to really appreciate the butt-kicking. Have a great week! I'm linking up!

  3. I'm officially training for a big run in February so the goal is to run 4-5 days this week. We'll see.. :-)

  4. I wouldn't have paid that much for a crappy gym at a hotel either.. that's just crazy... Sometimes you need a little indulgence, so it's good that you enjoyed it!

    Here is mine...

  5. Wow, what a pricey gym! Totally not worth it. I hardly ever work out on vacations, so I think it's completely understandable :) It's good to indulge sometimes ;-)

    I'll link up later this week!

  6. I know it's late, but here's my post!
