Getting Motivated

11 May

Did anyone watch yesterday’s Oprah?  It was fabulous.  Her audience was made up of 100 people who have lost 100 pounds.  So inspiring.  I came in, plopped down on the couch to watch and within 15 minutes I was out the door to the gym.  Talk about motivational, those people and their wonderful stories are so inspiring!

You know what else is motivating me?  I got new shoes!

Aren’t they pretty?  Run On! didn’t have the gray and purple version I had been lusting after so I went with the pink and yellow (which every time I think about I’m all pink and yellow, pink and yellow, pink and yellow, pink and yellow – thanks Wiz Khalifa). I tested them out on the treadmill tonight and they are wonderful, my feet are in love

I also realized that since I’m off on Friday (which I keep forgetting) my week is halfway over, score!  However, the fact that I will be in a swimsuit on Friday (!!!) is even more motivation for met to get to the gym.  I’ll take any calorie I can burn.

Anything special motivating you this week?  Not just to work out but… to get out of bed?

    Pretty new running shoes! Diggin’ the pink & yellow pink & yellow pink & yellow. The Biggest Loser used to inspire me but I stopped watching it half way through the season & I love all the health & fitness bloggers on Tumblr.

    LOVE the pink and yellow. I actually have the purple/black ones… but now I’m lusting after your pink/yellow ones. 😉
