Dear God, how is it Monday already? Not cool. Oh well. Back to the same old same old. But...I'll try my best to keep myself motivated this week. I definitely have some work deadlines looming, so this will be on busy week. But I'm going to lean towards fitness for motivation this week. I say this as I sit here on the couch stuffed beyond from a nice dinner with friends - I kind of went off the diet this weekend...wine, garlic bread, baked spaghetti, and apple pie. Bad, Nain, bad. Oh but it tasted so right. But it is funny how I can't eat as much as I used to be able to. I never got this ridiculously stuffed before. But I feel like someone inflated a giant balloon inside me.
I did kind of deserve to go off the diet today (Sunday) because on Saturday I did run a 5k training run in preparation for the Mini-Marathon in May. I am actually pretty proud of myself. I ran it in 35:40, which is a 11:30 mile! The biggest accomplishment of this is I ran the entire first mile. It might not be a big deal to some but to me? I was pumped. So happy dance for Nain! Our next training run is early March, and it is a 10k. So I need to keep going. Let's see how much I can run then.
It's so easy for me during the week to hit the snooze a few times and then be all "oh, it's too late to work out" so no. I can't do that this week. Must...get...up...So that's my motivation this week. To keep going, keep training. I can do this! We did get a training schedule from a program we did through a running store in the area a few years ago, and from what I see on there, I'm not too far off. So that's promising!
So that's my motivation to keep myself going. What's yours? Write up a little post about it and link it up! Let's stay motivated together!!!
