Friday Motivation

Last nights workout:

Ran 2 miles in 21:22 (10:41 pace)

Biked 10 miles in 40:40

I wanted to keep last nights workout pretty light since I am racing tomorrow. Have I mentioned that already? Only a thousand times? Let’s make it one thousand and one. I AM RACING TOMORROW!!!! WOOOOOOOOO! It has been WAY too long!

Rebecca, TriGirl, and Ann Marie will be there tomorrow as well! To top it all off, this will be Rebecca‘s very first race! Go send her some good luck lovin!


I thought I would start this weekend off right with some Friday motivation.



Very great perspective!!



Yep. That is always the hardest part!



Don’t mind if I do!



There is no way those costumes didn’t chafe the hell out of those guys! Now I kind of want to be a red solo cup for Halloween.

Here is to good runs and good drinks this weekend. Cheers everyone! Happy Friday!

I’m kicking my ass, do you mind?!

Liar liar kicking my ass

Last nights workout:
5 miles in 55:36 (11:07 pace)
2×25 girl pushups
Plank A Day

Wooo! Finally a kick ass run! Felt SOOO good!

Ok guys, I am so determined right now. I am giving myself 1 month to kick ass and tone this bod up. Hubs parents are flying up over Labor Day weekend and my parents are flying up the weekend after that. I am giving myself until labor day weekend to seriously drop this extra baggage. I know I have said this before, but I was only half way determined before. I am totally serious now. I MIGHT even consider posting before and after pictures on here. We will see how brave I am.

I have started getting my plan together and it is going to be awesome. I am not going to focus just on running. I am going to incorporate a lot of strength training and cross training as well. Push ups will be happening because my arms are losing definition at a rapid pace. Ab work will be a MUST. There is nothing that makes you feel more huge than serious muffin top.

So true.

I am going to write up a training plan for the month and I am going to stick to it. Let’s call it “Kick Ass In August”! Who is with me?!

I have some other plans for August too. Has anyone noticed my lack of book reviews? I haven’t posted one because I haven’t read any books since The Hunger Games series. I have been on page 1 of The Help for a couple months now. So, in August I am going to read TWO books. That is my goal. It’s all about time management, people!

Thirdly, I want to FINALLY finish getting our house decorated. We are so close I can taste it. I think we just have our bedroom and guest room to decorate. Potential home tour post when I’m done? I think we can make that happen.

There you you have it folks!

What are your goals for August? Wanna join my K.A.I.A. Challenge?! 🙂
