Beach-Ready Plan May 2009 Shape Magazine D4, W3

Today is a cardio day.  I've already been to the gym and done my 30 minutes of rowing and 30 minutes of the spin cycle.  Fun times.  I actually finished my audio book - a Sookie Stackhouse book.  It was ok.  I will likely buy another one.  

I didn't make the gym last night to do my spin cycle.  I had burned my shoulders yesterday on my walk with the pup and I was so hot all evening.  I'm not too worried about missing it since I did weights, and a 5k walk, and I do have the half marathon on the weekend.  

Please take a moment to click on the link below - what an interesting post!  It's about having motivation, finding motivation, needing motivation.  It is very insightful, and spot on, I think!

What else.... not much.  Even though I de-dandelion'd the front and back yard yesterday, today when I came home from the Club there were 12 more!  Where did they come from?  Those suckers are gone now though.... or ARE THEY??

Not much else on the agenda for the day.  Walk with the pup, of course, and belly dance tonight.  

I have a story to tell you.  I ran into a lady I curl with up at the fitness center.  She commented on this other lady that was up there working out.  You know, your worst nightmare - tall, slim, boob job and pretty to boot.  She is beautiful and actually works quite hard for her figure.  Anyhow, Barb, the curling lady, said how she would like to have this other woman's legs.  Now, what makes this a story is:  when I started working out with my trainer a year & a half ago, I had actually said to my trainer, while pointing to Barb (who I didn't know at the time) "can you get me her legs?".  I didn't tell her this story this morning, but I think I might next time I see her.  It's funny how we all see each other.  

Have a healthy day bloggers!

  4. I really enjoyed that post about motivation too. It's so completely honest and true and it's something I think a lot of us needed to hear.

  5. You should tell her your story. It's always nice to hear that you were someones "goal" for something. I'm headed over to check out that link now. Good luck in your half marathon!
