The Swing of Things

I'm trying to hard to get back into the swing of things.  My eating has been on point.  My exercising?  Eh, not o much.  I did some stuff on my own, sans videos on Monday.  And that was it.  I haven't like actually worked out in about a week.  And I feel sluggish.  I know I need to workout, I just am severly lacking the motivation to do so.  Not sure how to fix that.  I was in such an awesome workout groove and now.....nothing.  Le sigh.

Happy first day of summer!  This Jersey girl NEEDS to hit the shore, like ASAP.  Too bad I already spent all my money on 311 tickets.  Priorities people!  Next week is only supposed to be in the upper 70's, but today and tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 90's, so this really would have been the time to go.  Oh well, summer is just starting, we have time.  But still, I'm not used to waiting so long to hit Seaside.  I freaking hate being broke, for reals.

I'm actually thinking I may go for a run this morning.  I'll get the kids' bikes, head over to the park, and let them ride while I try not to die, lol.  If I'm going to do that though, I have to go soon before it' sweltering.  I've always wanted to take up running, but it's never been my thing.  I'm looking to make it my thing.  First I need to head over to Target and get my daughter tights that she needs for her recital this weekend and I want to buy one of those armbands I can put my iPod in.

And lastly, happy 2nd birthday to my lil pup Angel.  You are the biggest pain in my ass, but I love you so so so much!


  1. Liz, I feel like that A LOT. There is no proper motivation. You just have to start. Like if you want to go running, just go out and do it. You will feel so much better after those first few steps.

    1. Thanks Kel. I did end up going for a run today, and I am so NOT a runner! I did really well, I ran 1.8 miles in .6 mile incriments. After completing the .6 running I would walk for 2 or 3 minutes, then run .6 miles again. It felt so awesome even though my legs were about to fall off! And I had SO much energy the whole rest of the day, it was crazy! Looking forward to going again....
