Motivation Monday

Woke up SO EXHAUSTED this morning. Like, would have given anything for it to still be the weekend. Even more than that, I would have given anything for it to be a day where I could just say, “nope, not doing it today.” Not working, not mothering, not cleaning, not doing laundry, not working out, not doing anything but lying in bed and watching Netflix and getting my nap on. Life has just been such a rat race lately, and I can’t really figure out why. I don’t necessarily feel like we have more on our plates than normal…we’ve always been crazy busy and are pretty much used to that. Even Matt turned towards me this morning when the alarm went off and said he felt completely exhausted as well. So obviously it isn’t just me. I guess that’s just the season of life we are in right now, and hopefully it will pass soon. Or at least we will adjust to this new season.

 I know this post is supposed to serve as my weekly dose of motivation, and the above pity party doesn’t sound like I have much motivation to offer, and I’m definitely going to need some motivation of my own this week, but I guess if I have anything to offer this morning it will come in the form of wise words spoken by a cartoon fish. “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” (Asher Wade is on quite a Finding Nemo and Finding Dory kick lately.) Seriously though, if you feel like you’re in a rut, or running a race where you can’t quite keep up, just keep swimming. Just keep running. Just keep pushing. Just keep doing. You’ll get there.

 Stats from last week:

 Monday 6/6: 15 minutes on the treadmill (6.0 mph) and a 45 minute Sports Drill class (cardio intervals followed by strength training exercises)

Tuesday 6/7: 30 minute step class and 15 minutes of core exercises followed by 15 minutes on the treadmill walking on an incline (4.0 mph at 9-10% incline)

Wednesday 6/8: 10 minutes on the treadmill (6.0 mph), 45 minute power yoga class AND 30 minutes of Tabata with Matt for a full body workout

Thursday 6/9: 1 hour walk outside along the river

Friday 6/10: 15 minutes on the treadmill (5.8 mph) and a 45 minute Sports Drill class (circuit set-up moving between cardio, upper body and lower body exercises). We also walked A LOT at Riverbend Festival that evening….I hit 20,000 steps!

Saturday 6/11: 60 minute Orangetheory Fitness class

Sunday 6/12: 50 minute walk outside, working in some serious hill intervals. My legs were on fire!

Even though it’s been hot as blazes this week, it was still gorgeous out during my walk.
