Half Marathon Update

OK, let me take a second to be completely and totally honest with you. I haven't gone for a run in 2 weeks. I should be running 5 miles as we speak, but I'm watching Sex and the City reruns and typing this post.

I just haven't been into it. At all. I've had zero motivation. I know it has to stop. Soon. Like now soon.

I recently read that Kate from The Small Things Blog committed to getting up at 5am and going to the gym with her husband. Now, I gut hate getting up before 7am, but I can always find an excuse not to go to the gym after work. I'm damned if I don't and damned if I do. After reading how much Kate found she enjoyed starting her morning with a healthy choice, I thought I could try it, too.

So, Kris and I have committed to getting up and heading to the gym at 5am for the next week. I'll keep you guys posted. I need something to get me back on track. This nonchalant attitude towards my health is the pits.

What do you guys do to get back on track after a timeout from exercise?



  1. i look at how fit i used to be or how fit other people are. this inspires me to get going again :)

    i also saw something on pinterest that said "i may not be there yet, but i'm one day closer than i was yesterday"

    i love that :)

    ps following you! <3

  2. That is awesome. Let me know how it goes! My husband and I need some serious motivation. It seems like one of us is either too busy, sick, tired, or something and we don't ever want to go alone, haha!

    Excited to be your newest follower!


  3. Girl, I'm right there with you on the "hate getting up before 7am"! Oh, the thought alone kills me. My hubby heads to the gym each morning by 5:30 while I snooze away...12 hours later it's my turn, I'm the evening workout-er.
    Good Luck to ya! And which ever plan works for you, stick with it! Whenever I get off track...I just get dressed in my gym clothes - it gets me in the mindset that I will be going to the gym and getting back on track!
