Week Before Vacation Blahs...

Why is the week before a vacation the worst week ever!?  Please tell me I am not the only one who thinks this.  Peace will come at 6am on Friday morning while I am sitting on the plane reading 'The Help' and watching 'How I Met Your Mother' on my iPad.  Can't wait.
So, I know some of you have seen my "Sweat!" tab above.  It has been a good way for me to keep myself accountable for two things.  1 - Running 3 days a week and 2 - Working out 5 days a week.  I know I will never be an every day runner or a 6 or 7 day a week worker outer (I stand by this choice of words), so I am happy to get moving at least 5 days a week.  Granted, I have had a few fails, but I just move on to the next week and do what I can.  Writing everything down does motivate me to get it done. 
What are some ways you motivate yourself to work out?

Last night I committed to the Spin Challenge on the blog Run with Jess.
I want to be a SpinStar, so I will need to attend 6 spin classes in the month of August.  Sounds good to me!
On a totally random note, the college I attended, Florida Southern College in Lakeland, was named the Most Beautiful Campus in this year's Princeton Review.  It is a really gorgeous campus and is the largest single site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in the world.
Aaaahhhhh the memories of the good ol' FSC days!
T-minus two days until vacation... I've got a lot of countdowns going on.


  1. 5 days a week sounds just about perfect to me! Good plan :). I like to run 3-4 days a week, and have one crosstraining day. It does usually end up being spin, as it happens.

    And yes, that is the longest week ever. I always feel like I NEED the vacation after all the work I had to do preparing for the vacation.

  2. Heeeey! I'm from Tampa, I went to USF!

    I use my blog as well to hold myself accountable. I love posting my "Plan for the Week", then checking back and confessing to the world all the things I didn't do. Or, occasionally, being excited about all the things I DID do ;)

  3. Hip-hip hooray for vacation!!

    I'm with you, working out 6 or 7 days a week is just not my cup of tea... yet. I mean I said I'd never run, and now I do, so who knows?!?

    Have a lovely vacay!
