Recently a friend of mine expressed that she is feeling unmotivated to workout and eat healthy. We've all been there! I decided to help her out because I'm OH SO GREAT at working out all the time. NOT! Mainly, because I'm at a stage where I could use the motivation myself and we can help hold each other accountable. It is a win-wine situation. haha, did I really just type that?! freudian slip. I wish it was a "win wine" situation, I'd workout everyday of my life!
Anyway, you know what I mean. It is a lot harder to hit snooze and say, "meh, I'll start working out tomorrow," when you have a friend patiently waiting for you at the park. So, a couple times a week we will try to walk or run or go to the gym together. Remember me griping about paying $22 per gym visit, well no longer my friends. I've now knocked it down to 20 bucks an hour. Unfortunately though, my friend texted me this morning saying she had a massive headache. Fine, I'll let it slide this time ;) I debated rolling back over and sleeping for another 45 minutes, but since I was already awake I went for it.
Strap on those Nikes!
And I'm so glad that I did. I need to run at 6:45 in the morning more often. Okay, maybe not too often, because I'm an infant and need 9+ hours of sleep in a day. But, it was so nice outside. This was before it started feeling like a sauna and Country Man was texting me about his butt-sweat.
I actually got to see what a sunrise looks like, its been a long time.
My conclusion: it looks like a sunset. Yet beautiful nonetheless.
The little lake around my house is a 2.2 mile loop,
and I was having one of those days where I felt like I could run forever. And by forever I mean twice. 4.4 miles to be exact
Do you ever feel like that? It doesn't happen too often, so when it does I usually try to embrace it, but time didn't allow for it today.

What motivates you to get up early and workout? Or just to workout in general, at any time?
a certain song or playlist?
the view during a nice run?
the hottie at the gym?
I'd like to know. And I need more songs to add to my "Run Faster!" playlist. It actually used to say, "Time to Workout you Fat Lard" but I decided self-deprecation wasn't the best form of motivation. Now I promote playlists that say,
"Ryan Gosling thinks you're sexy and Justin Timberlake likes your moves!"
Have a splendid Wednesday evening!
Earl the Weenie is. He says what's up.
