Check Point… Working on MoTiVaTiOn!

6 Mar

Good morning all!

This is the weekly check in that is hosted by my friend and runner Mari over at Bookworm With A View.  Weekly we are asked to do a little check in on how the physical get up and MOVE It MOVE it is going…

a week ago I did not participate as I had nothing to report… a week from he**, I worked all day and had commitments every evening and then was out-of-town for the weekend.  Honestly I was exhausted.  And crabby. Yes.  CRABBY.

But earlier this last week I dusted myself off and got back on the treadmill.  I wrote a post confessing how I have not been as committed as I had hoped; to this blog… and to myself.  And I am hoping that is about to change.

For starters, I treated myself to new shoes this week.  Thank you all who gave me advice on this… I don’t know if I did well, but they are working nicely for the gym and indoor activities:

And in the past week I have made it to my goal of Group Power three times in a week… (weight lifting to music).  I also attended a Zumba Class, elliptical time and floor hockey.  It was a good workout week!

My goals now are to hold momentum and keep on going.  I will be at the gym tonight for Group Power and elliptical.  I plan to continue each day then until Sunday.  I want to be active at least five times a week with at least an hour workout.

I have started keep track of miles on my sidebar… I seem to be having an odd formatting opportunity where it is not lining up right but I will keep track of bike miles once I have some. 😀

Anyhoo… thats me.  How you all doing?  Is Spring in the air?  Is motivation?  Let Mari know at Check Point!

    Yay! It’s so heartening to see that you pulled yourself back to a place where it’s all beginning to come together for you.

    Great job last week! I have just a few more weeks before I can jog short distances. I can add spinning into the rotation but need to get to the gym for that (hanging head in shame) 🙂

    Love the new shoes!

    Go you! 🙂 I’m excited this week because there are SEVERAL ladies where I work that want to do the Couch25k program that I finished so I am “training” them. 🙂 It feels so good!
