Motivational Monday

MM-I-can-do-this

Welcome to another edition of Motivational Monday. The day that gets our week primed and ready to go! And yes, I really feel that way!

This morning I got in a 3 mile run. The weather was 50 degrees, no wind, no rain. Just perfect. I almost wish I was one of those people who could remember feelings because this morning was a great way to feel. Afterwards I got in a 30 minute workout and a big glass of water. Personally I think it’s a great start to the week.

dream it wish it do it

By the way people, plan your days. I didn’t plan as much as I should and there were a few key things I should have done. PLAN, PLAN, PLAN!!!  It’s a key to success.

Lastly……………….

1. Drink water

2. Move (walk, run, trampoline, do something)

3. Eat something good for you. Your eating plan doesn’t have to be perfect. But something is always better than nothing!!

Here’s a couple more Motivational Monday’s going on……….

Motivational Monday

no more excuses

It’s MONDAY!!! For some I realize it’s Monday but it’s Motivational Monday!! One of my favorite days.  Mondays are a great way to hit the restart button and start new. Out the old in with the new.

I started my Monday off with 4 miles, 16 oz. of water (great way to get the digestion system moving) and a little quiet time to give thanks. I’ll probably sneak a little more quiet time tonight but something is always better than nothing!  Meanwhile, I’ve got less than 8 weeks to get myself into fighting shape for the local half marathon (that I haven’t fully committed to yet) and less days than I care to imagine to get this winter booty ready for Memorial Day!  The day that all winter booties go into hibernation and summer booties come out to play (not literally unless your a little less modest than me, which I think most people are).

Speaking of 4 miles. This morning on I was on the treadmill (because I’ve been a complete baby about this winter weather this year) enjoy  watching curling (greatest Olympic sport ever!) when I started feeling a slow pull in my neck.  I wasn’t doing anything abnormal except running when what felt like slow motion was a very slow annoying pull begin to take place.  Just like that. I couldn’t stop it. So now, I’m walking around with a funny neck position nursing an uncomfortable crick. What gives?!!? I was able to continue on but how annoying!

Anyways, so time to get busy with the week.  I hope you have a great one and remember, drink water and think positive. It’s

going to be a great week! Cheers!

run. run. run.

suck it up now

keep your head up

Motivation Monday

Happy Monday!!! Did you have rough weekend? Maybe ate a little too much? How about sat a little too much? That’s okay. Don’t worry!  We’re going to hit the restart button and start new. So get moving, eat cleaner and healthier than you did yesterday and remember to have a some quiet time to reboot at the end of the day.  Cheers!

I know it seems at this point that all I’ve become is a glorified Tumblr account just posting pictures on motivation. I don’t mean to be. To make matters worse,  last week I let a pile of excuses get in the way of posting  more other than Motivation Monday. Sadly, I was sort of locked away inside thanks to a ice storm (I guess that’s the right title for it) and my excuse for not posting, “I’m cold and don’t want to do anything.” How’s that for motivation!?!? I did clean the house and had some valuable down time.  However, I’m back this week with a schedule for posting and working out!  Even though I post so much about motivation, without it, a lot of task would never get completed. So Monday Motivation is more than a post I do to generate traffic, it’s a tool I use to get us all moving in a positive direction.

Stop back by tomorrow when I talk about the importance of habits.

Move, Nourish, Believe

Have you missed me?!?! Where have I been you ask?! Well, I gave myself a social media rest. A social media vacation. I was to a point at the end of November where I just felt like I was in a huge crowd and in order for somebody to notice me I had to jump up and down screaming “Look at me!!” I was over it. Done. I was honestly on the verge of shutting Pounds To Miles down. I was exhausted. So, I allowed myself a break. I have to admit, it was nice. No pressure. Just living and doing. However, I’ve missed my little space in the internet world.

What have you missed over the last couple of weeks?

1. My vacation in Gatlinburg, TN during Thanksgiving.

2. Dallas Marathon was cancelled due to an nasty ice storm

3. Family time during Christmas

4. New Years Eve with friends

After the Dallas Marathon was cancelled I kind of fell off track and had no schedule. NOT GOOD!! I need structure in my life. Until I get tired of structure then I need free will. Until I get tired of that! It’s a nasty vicious cycle!! Anyways, so where am I currently? I’ve adopted a new mantra…………..

motto

No, I’m not in business with Lorna Jane nor am I affiliated with them in any way. I saw this on Fitsugar  (such a fun website) and I instantly knew that that was it! I actually came into the new year with no goals, resolutions or anything. I feel like this encompasses all that I am right now. It’s simple, catchy and easy to remember, yet brilliant!! Check out the website Move, Nourish, Believe  (it’s one of those, why didn’t I think that type things!!)  The move and the nourish part to me are self explanatory but the believe could mean anything. For me, it’s a growth in my faith. It’s the part where I want to have a closer more meaningful relationship with God.

I’m excited!  It’s something to keep me focused. I think we all need a little reminders whether it be a motto, a picture or something. 2014 is going to be a great year!
