Ughh Monday

Yesterday, we spent the day at the Seattle Boat Show.  We didn't come home with a boat, but we are still considering it and working out details. I wish I would have wore my Garmin to the boat show as it was a lot of walking, even more was the climbing in and out of the boats.

After the boat show I decided the only way I was going to kick this workout funk I was in was to fake it until I make it.  I hoped on the treadmill and struggled through 3.3 miles, but at the end I wished it wasn't 9PM and I had more time.  This inspired me to push through and get myself motivated for my next half. I have a little over a month to feel prepared for it. Is it strange now that I have completed the distance twice I am less worried about finishing and more worried about how I feel the next day. 
Do you believe the motto fake it until you make it?

This morning I was supposed to get up for Spin, but my back wasn't feeling it. I think yesterday's adventures put a little to much stress on it.  I am hoping by tonight it will feel better as I wanted to try my Zumba Wii game as well as hop on the bike for an hour.We shall see when I get home today how I feel and go from there.   This morning I did start my day with some semi fresh juice. The process of juice is a little time consuming I am not going to lie. It takes about  10-15 minutes prepping and juicing and 5 minutes to clean up. I am don't know about you but I don't have that kind of time in the morning. Last night before bed I made juice for this morning  - I don't remember now what I put in it but if I had to guess by the taste it was orange, apple, spinach, carrot and strawberry. Overall very good!  I also had some idea's last night for making a protein shake with fresh juice versus water or milk and now I can't wait to try them. I will make sure to share them if they are any good.

Rumor has it that Google is making changes to their accounts and that we are going to lose our ability to use Follow  with Google Friends soon. I already have my blog publish to my Facebook through Network Blogs so I added a follow me through Network blogs if you are interested.  Check out the right hand column. I also publish directly to my twitter so if you already follow me there we good to go. Either way I want to thank everyone who follows me and leaves me amazing comments. You all rock!


  1. Good Lord have mercy. Now I have to find another way to follow people? Sigh.

    1. I am not sure how it will all turn out I hope I don't lose all my blogs I follow when this change happens.

  2. My whole personal philosophy in almost every aspect of my life is fake it until I make it!!!!

  3. Maybe I should test out the "fake it til you make it" theory because I am in one heck of a funk!

  4. I have definitely used the fake it til you make it to get me started on some runs, and it almost always works! I'm jealous of all your fresh juice, yum!

  5. I use Google reader for updates, I don't even have google friends myself.

    My hub had a speed boat when I met him but sold it. We've talked about buying a boat over the years but I don't want to feel obligated to go out with the boat every time the weather is good.

  6. I don't worry about Goggle connections either....people will find you no matter what...where there is a will there is a way!
