Work it Out Wednesday: New Kicks & My Motivation
After a week-long trip of non-stop eating, two weeks off the gym due to a horrible cold and traveling and shorts becoming my staple piece of clothing, it is time to get my butt into gear. No excuses.
I don't know about you guys by my main excuse is always that I am too busy. There is always work left to do, happy hours to attend or naps to take. I always wonder how I can ever get a work out in during a crazy day, but then I think that there are so many people so much busier than I am (kids, daily commutes, long work hours, etc) who still find time to work out. That in itself usually motivates me to get off by butt.
Another thing that motivates me - cute shoes! I know I got new running shoes a few weeks ago, but when I saw these Asics at DSW a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to have them.
I mean, I have a thing for neon peach and put that together with turquoise, black and white and I am sold. Also, Asics are my all time favorite shoes for running (amazing cushion and foot support) so there was no time to waste. One quick order via Zappos and they were on my doorstep when I got home from NY.
I am already putting them to good use...see!
So by posting all of this on the blog, I am holding myself accountable to get back to a good work out schedule. Unless I catch that horrible cold again or injure myself somehow, I WILL be in that gym* at least 4 days per week. *or at least working out (pilates and barre classes count)
You can hold me to it! :)
Please share your workout motivations/motivators below! The cute shoes help but there will be days where neon peach won't totally do it for me and I'll need all the help I can get!
