Mid-Week Motivation

Pin It
Hey y'all. Just a quick check in today with some Mid-Week Motivation. :) I don't know about you, but there's usually something going on in my life that wouldn't be hurt by adding a little motivation and would probably be better off for it's addition.

I've been feeling a little bummed lately that I can't seem to pick up my pace during my 2 daily 5K's. Yep, I said 2. Now, I bet most people would say, "Wow! 2 5K's a day!?!" In fact when I told my best friend Jason I was running  jogging 2hrs a day he said, "You're running a half-marathon a day!!!?!!!" Sadly, no. Still, on some level I guess I should be happy with the fact that I'm running 2hrs a day instead of sitting on my rather curvy posterior. But, I'm a little OCD and a little on the "Everything I do has to be Perfect" side, so even though I feel this is an accomplishment since I only started running a month ago, it's still been bothering me. Then I found this message on Pinterest last week and it made me feel a little bit better. I tried to upload the pic, but Pinterest is blocked at my worksite so no-go. I'll load it later from home and update this post, but here's what it says.

"Whether it's a 14 minute mile or a 7 minute mile, IT IS STILL A MILE."

You know what? It's a true statement. I may not be going as fast as I want, but hopefully it will come in time. If not, I'll just be cruising along at the end of the pack, still running my race.

I hope this is helpful to someone out there in blogland. :)

Oh, by the way, I met someone today who I'm hoping will be a new blogger-pal. Ruthanne over at Eclectic Whatnot . She is also blogging about her weight-loss journey. In fact, She's the inspiration behind me putting my weight up each week. Talk about accountability! She had taken a short hiatus from blogging and as I was catching up on my feeds this morning I was so happy to see she's back in Bloglandia! If you get a chance, go check her out. She's fabulous!!!

Well, that's all I have for you today. I'll be back tomorrow with a new recipe for you. It's sooo tasty!

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by. You are so appreciated! Till next time-

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.

Be Safe,

  1. You're running two hours a day? Every day? Whoa, momma!!

    Make sure you're eating enough protein.

    The main goal is to enjoy it. If you don't enjoy it, you won't stick with it. When I start to feel frustrated with my running, I step back (mentally) and reassess where I want to be.

    You're doing great! :)
