Some motivation required

Now that is motivation! Last night I wasn't able to make it to the gym, by the time I had a free minute to go it was 9PM, and well I like to relax a little when I am done working out before going to bed. Instead I completed week 4 day 1 of the push up challenge....yea it was tough and then tossed in some ab work and called it a night.

This morning the snooze button and I were at war. I finally got out of bed with 30 minutes to do some yoga, 15 minutes into it I wished I crawled out of bed earlier so that I could have completed and hour of it. It felt so good! I think I am going to officially make Wednesday yoga morning - of course we have to wait until next week to see if it will really happen.  

Last night I also made a trip to Target, probably the reason I never made it to the gym. I think I need to be supervised when sent into a store like Target. I came out with a new top which I love and wore this morning for yoga, but I can't seem to find it on their website to share with you. The most surprising purchase was a pair of running shorts! My garage is to hot in the summer and running in capri's is killing me and I only have one running skirt, so I picked up a pair of clearance running shorts. These will only be worn in the privacy of my home or over capris - but first I need to test them and make sure my thighs don't get hungry and eat them up while I run.

What is your preferred running pants....skirt, shorts, carpi's? Are there any stores you should being unsupervised in?


  1. I love running skirts, but only if the shorts underneath don't ride up. Lululemon ones are the best. I should be left unsupervised in one of their stores. Sadly there are none around here :(

  2. I just ordered a pair of shorts, because my capris are feeling way too hot as it gets warmer outside. I don't relish the thought of wearing them outside, though, on my runs. I think I'll just have to get over that, but capris are definitely my favorite!

  3. I prefer the bike short length shorts, that come in just above the knee, to prevent chaffing, so I never have to be perfectly shaved for a run. hahahahah.
