I Love Mondays!!!

Leave a comment

Monday is my favorite day of the week!  A chance to start new, a fresh beginning, and a new week of great possibilities.

I love Monday so much people know if they want something from me and they ask me on a Monday, there is 99.9% chance I might do it (of course, within legal ramifications).

This Monday I am back on track with the goal of  completing my training for the Disney Princess Half.  I am eating well (today).  I ran/walked 5 miles (today).  And I am possibly going to take a spin class because I am in a great mood.

In short, don’t phuck up my Mondays.  It will not be good for the rest of the days of the week as I feel Monday sets the tone on how the week will go.  Screw up my Fridays and that’s okay because we are only two days away from Monday.

Set a goal, complete the goal!

Leave a comment

When I set a goal I aim and try to reach it but sometimes I get hit with curve balls that make me lose complete sight of my vision.

I set a goal to PR on my next half marathon race which is the Disney Princess Half on February 2015. I want to beat my previous time of 2 hours and 3 minutes and come in at a time of 1 hour, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. That time is my true goal (but if I come in at 2:02:59, I am fine with that!). But of course I have been procrastinating and just being ugh about getting into shape.

So I am putting it out there – starting Monday, November 10 we are going to be on a serious mission to drop 3/4 of stone (everything sounds better in a British accent)!

I will have three cheat days between now and the end of the year – the day of Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, and the day after the day after Thanksgiving. Christmas dinner – is just Thanksgiving the remix so I don’t need that as a cheat day. And I don’t drink (but I do get seriously drunk on Sparkling Apple Cider) so New Year’s Eve not a big drinking holiday for me.

Then I seriously start training on December 1 for this half. I just need to set a goal and complete a goal so I can feel like I achieved something in 2014.

Starting your own business is a total mind phuck.

More on that in the next post.

Enter the Bikini Series! The Bikini Series is an annual challenge put on by the ladies who run Tone It Up.  It is being promoted for you to have the chance to get into the best shape of your life. HA! I am already ahead of the curve as I started my challenge 4 weeks ago. This seems like a great motivating tool and I am sure I can benefit from tips and tricks, new recipes, workouts, and encouragement from others to keep going. Click here to see what I am talking about!

A quick recap of what’s going on in my three P’s (personal, physical, professional) since the last post:

Personal –

I am looking for a place of worship that’s non-judgmental and non-denominational. I put in my GPS, searched for it on Google map, and even mapquested (is mapquested even a word?) and I coming up empty. No worries I will find one. I have faith. I have all of the faiths.

Physical –

Duh! You know this one. Here is another tidbit – I am in my third week on Insanity. YAY! And I am getting that itch to run a half or a full marathon. I think there is still time to sign up for the Goofy Challenge 2015 – 39.3 miles in one weekend.  I have done it in the past and would like to beat my previous record.  No matter what I am definitely signing up for the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon Weekend 2015.  Registration opens in July and I am ready!

In the meantime click here to read our blog but definitely click here to order our wonderful natural, handmade, paraben-free, sulfate-free, chemical-free bath and body products. You will love it!

Everything Sounds Better With A British Accent

One of my physical goals (part of my 3P plan) is to get in the best shape for 2015 half-marathons and marathons. In order to accomplish the goal, I have a few pounds to lose.

We say pounds, the Brits say stones. One stone is equivalent to 14 pounds. It sounds so depressing when I need to lose 7 pounds but it has a nice ring to it when I only need to lose half a stone.

Insanity week 5 day 2 – DONE!

I’m getting there.
