Motivational Tools....

I can't believe i've been doing this running thing for 8+ weeks now!! I never in my wildest dreams thought I would actually stick to it. The furthest i'd ever run in my life was 2 miles with no walking and that was back in '04 when I went to the gym EVERYDAY for 2 hours a day. Side note, I didn't lose an ounce and I wasn't eating like garbage either, but I really didn't eat much!

Anyways, along this road, I've had so many motivational moments that i'd like to share with you. Bullet points are ideal for this!

  • Motivation #1: Telling myself that I could stick to a 5k training program, knowing it would be hard but totally worth it! I believed in myself from day 1! I never gave up! I pushed and I admired myself more everytime I did!
  • Motivation #2: Once my 5k training was over, Loves and I bought me some new kicks. Asics, which are ACTUAL running shoes. My first pair of shoes that I dedicated strictly to running!
  • Motivation #3: I was going through a rut last week, and I decided to keep motivated, I wanted another little gadget. So, Loves and I bought me a super cool Nike+. I love that thing. It feels so good to know when I reach .5 mile, 1 mile, 1.5 miles, and so on! It's been huge in getting remotivated!
The above are only exercise motivators. I'll save the body and food motivators for another post! Right now, i'm off to work. My Reader is full so tonight I will be playing catch up and posting comments! I see I have a few new followers "HI!!! and THANKS for STOPPING by!!!!!" You guys rock!

Have a fantastic day, y'all!
