I did not rest on the seventh day…

A rest day was set up from the very beginning. Since I “rested” for the first six days, I figured it was fine to actually put in some work on this seventh day of June.

Yesterday was today and now tomorrow is today…and I had three things to do!

1. Go to the gym and work on my cardio.

2. Register for my first 10k

3. Get a jump start on my day…NO Snooze button…multiple times…ok, like 10. None of that!

I’m SOOOO happy to say that I can check off all three things! I almost snoozed…and missed the gym…but I’m proud to say that the pressure of meeting my friend Dawn at the gym was really all I needed. It’s harder for me to let others down and extremely easy to let myself down when it comes to fitness and eating healthy.

#1 ~ The first 1.5 miles was hellacious (not sure that’s a word…and neither does spellcheck…but you get my meaning). Did a warm up and then figured I should start out doing a 5k and see where my time falls. *sigh* I’ve got my work cut out for me the next 3 weeks to get ready for the Kenwood Footrace on July 4th. Today my 5k time was 38:22…let’s hope I can improve a bit.

#2 ~ I registered myself and my nephew for the Kenwood Footrace and my very first 10k. I’m hoping for some encouragement and inspiration from my nephew to help me make it through the hilly course. Maybe it was the endorphins that were released this morning…but I also signed up for the Warrior Dash NorCal in October….plenty of time to build some upper body strength to climb over those dang walls.

#3 ~ I only snoozed ONCE! The text from my friend Dawn certainly helped too! My usual mornings are rushed with random household duties and errands…and inevitably me leaving without my lunch. Today I made it to the gym, got ready for work, switched laundry over, brought my lunch, made coffee at home, did an errand for the hubby, and actually dried my hair at home (instead of in the car from the A/C vents…yes! I really do that).

Tomorrow is a new day to look forward to!

Tomorrow I will do three things:

1. Go to the gym and work on my cardio.

2. Drink water. I’ll start off with getting in 24 oz.

3. Get a jump start on my day and my weekend!

What are your goals for tomorrow and this weekend??
