Weeks Eight Thru Ten

So I've been thinking...this Saturday is exactly one week until my 7K.  ONE!  I feel pretty ready, but not like amazing, I'm going to rock your socks off with my speed ready.

I'm excited to get to it, do the best I can and reward myself with beer and a parade afterwards.  After all this is on St. Patty's, so what better way to stay focused than to know you get to toss back a few afterwards.  Yes, I use beer and wine as motivation in my every day life.  Don't judge.

I've told myself that after I reached and accomplished my goal of my first run of the year I was going to change up a few things about my workout routine.

My focus has never been on weight, it's been more just feeling better and stronger, HOW.EV.ER, I've been gaining weight.  Nothing major, but the past two weeks I have gone the opposite direction on the scale and it's kinda pissing me off.  So I guess I do care more than I think.We're talking 2 whole pounds, but still, not the direction I was hoping for.

Memorial Day will be my first visit to a swimsuit since last summer, assuming it's warm enough, so that is motivation there.

One of my favorite bloggy buddies, Kristen, shared a great idea on her blog today.  And I'm going to do it!  I'm going to buy a swimming suit as my motivation to kick my ass just a little bit harder.  I'll hang it on my closet door and I will see it every day.  Motivation = wine and swimsuits.  Yes.

I'm about to round out Week 11 of Operation Badass.  And after next week it will officially have been three (3!!!!) months!

Suggestions for classes you enjoy, especially if you work out at Gold's Gym, would be appreciated.  I will stick with Body Pump for sure and Yoga on occasion, but I'm thinking I'll get back into spinning.  That's a kick ass calorie burner.

At the end of the day, I feel better and I'm definitely stronger (and my butt appears a bit firmer and smaller, so that's a bonus), but I could use a little belly reduction...and a spray tan!

Have a great weekend!

Dude... wine and other types of booze is ALWAYS a motivation for me. LOL. And what better way to get motivated than by looking at a swimsuit. Like, HELLO?!!! It's the perfect motivator.

Dude, I ALWAYS use wine and other alcoholic beverages as a motivator. It works wonders! And including a swimsuit as motivation just takes it up a notch. LOL. You can't go wrong now.

BTW... I TOTALLY posted a comment before, walked away from my cpu, and here I am... posting another one. Something happened to the original comment. LOL. Okay... *end rambling*
