I am on day 12 of move-my-butt motivation, a/k/a The Gauntlet.
If you don’t know about The Gauntlet, neener-neener.
If you decided to join The Gauntlet too late, neener-neener.
If you joined The Gauntlet and are going strong, you get a pass on the neener-neener and go straight to “you are totally and irrevocably awesome” awesomeness.
The weather has not cooperated this week, so I wasn’t able to walk outside. *grumble*
(The picture is from last week, when that yellow, round, bright, glowing object was hanging in the blue sky.)
Instead, I headed to the gym for mileage on the treadmill and this:
I lifted things up and put them down. (No, that’s not me. You do not want to see 55-year old not-so-tight midriff.)
When I was not grunting on the gym floor and walking to the beat of AC/DC, I headed to the pool to swim laps.
Since I do not take my phone to the pool with me, you’ll have to accept the drippy after-the-fact evidence of my excursions.
I could also take a picture of the large container of Gold Bond lotion that I have acquired since swimming. A salt water pool is not always skin friendly.
Every day since April 1st has had its challenge – crappy weather, adult responsibilities, laziness, tiredness – that makes it difficult to be and stay motivated.
So far, I have been up to the challenge and I intend to see this through to completion.
Perhaps by May 1st, it will stop snowing here and I’ll be able to get out my mountain bike and start a new challenge. Or plant flowers.
Happy Motivational Friday!
