Well, I am back from Vegas! In fact, I have been back nearly a week! I told myself that when I got back I was going to focus entirely on my new-found healthy lifestyle. I have been doing really well in the exercise area considering I am just coming off an excellent vacation. I have logged 200 minutes of fitness this week. That includes a 50 minute Jillian Michaels fat burning cardio interval exercise tape. I have never really been one to do an exercise tape. They feel so impersonal or something. This one was recommended to me, so I had to try it. If you are looking for a good workout dvd I am suggesting this to you!! I have to say, I really like it overall! There are some challenging moves, and I can work some strength training in if I use some weights!! I like it! So, maybe I will commit to doing that at least once a week. I know if I do it to much i will become bored with it. Overall, I am feeling good about where I am with my fitness. I have a 4 mile race coming up at the end of the month, and I am pretty sure I am going to be ready for it. That feels good.
So, now to the point of this blog (now that I am finishing stroking my own ego). I am feeling inspired because I read something on Spark today that really made me think. It said "someone busier than you is running right now". Now, I like to think of myself as a pretty busy person. I am pretty sure I only like to think that because I love to have an excuse! I am not abnormally busy. I have time to watch my favorite tv shows in the evening! This morning I set my alarm to go to the gym early, most mornings I am pretty good about getting up. This morning I convinced myself that I need the extra hour of sleep because I had a busy day ahead of me. I totally could have went and worked out!! I am sure someone far busier than me was at the gym this morning. Hopefully next time I try to convince myself that I don't need to get up or that I don't have time to stop into the gym for a little while I remember that.
Hope everyone is having a great week!! Yayy for a holiday weekend!
