A Little Late to the Party...

Although mentally I am in Spring mode, there's one area where I just can't seem to beat Mother Nature. Fitness. She is killing me! I kept procrastinating signing up for Tina's Best Body Bootcamp because I thought for sure the weather would warm up and I'd want to run outside. So not the case. Ugh.

Last year at this time, I was starting to seriously train for the half-marathon and J and I were loving running outside in the morning. Nowadays, I check my phone at night to see what the weather will be at 6 am, hoping we'll be able to get out there and run. And this is what I see...

And that's warm compared to most mornings this week...28 degrees has been what I typically see at 6 am. No thanks! And then what do I do? Hit snooze for another hour. 

So something needs to change. Quick too. So I did it. I signed myself up for Tina's Best Body Bootcamp which actually started this past Monday. Thankfully, Tina's allowing people to sign up late for an extra $10. I'll take it! $35 total is still such a deal.

I finally got myself to the gym last night too. Between being out of shape AND a gym that's about 80 degrees some nights, I was dying. Proof.

Woof. Hello sweaty betty. (love my new TNF tank!)

So it's happening. This girl is going to get her act together and toning up. The thought that my Spring and Summer clothes could be a little tight is certainly motivation!

Oh and another way we're getting healthy over Vitamix! Oh my gosh, I am soo on board with every other Vitamix owner now. Totally worth it. Yes my blender and magic bullet were fine for simple smoothies but how about adding raw oats, carrots, almonds, or whole apples? Can't even tell! We are definitely taking in more servings of fruits and veggies daily thanks to the best birthday present ever!

Post-workout smoothie: Almond milk, water, banana, peanut butter, spinach, oatmeal, chia seeds, vanilla protein powder. 

What's your motivation to get in shape? Beyond just staying healthy, I gotta say...knowing my arms and legs will be much more visible once the weather warms up definitely gets me moving!
