I don't know about you guys, but I am feeling in need of a reboot!  Although the calendar tells us that summer isn't over yet, we all know that Labor Day marks the end of the summer season and it is back to reality for many people.

I am feeling a little like I need this fresh start.  I envision myself like a boxer when he gets into the ring - you know how they start shaking their arms out and rolling their head back and forth to get things loosened up?  That's what I am doing psychologically.

I spent the last week carb loading and then enjoyed the spread at the end of the race and the scale is reflective us this.  I was tempted to say "the hell with it" yesterday and spend one more day indulging, but I resisted that urge, and behaved very well.  I'm going on vacation soon and that's going to mean challenges, so I want to have some cushion - and I DON'T mean on my ASS!

So we now begin a push that will take us to the end of the year.  Christmas will be here in 16 weeks.  What do you want to accomplish before then?  How many pounds can you lose in the next 16 weeks?  That, my friends, is up to you!

If you start this week, you can complete the Couch to 5K Program and run a 5K race this fall!  If you create your TO DO list and  work on one small thing per week, you can have a bunch of fall projects crossed off by Thanksgiving!  

Imagine how much you can accomplish if you put your mind to it!

Remember - organization is the KEY!  Things are going to get crazy so set yourself up right!  Plan your meals for the week - take out what you are going to have for dinner the night before!  Lay out your clothes for the next day before you go to bed.  Pack your workout bag so that all you have to do is grab it before heading out.  

How badly do you want your life to change?  Today is THE day.  No excuses.  No whining.  DO IT!

  1. Yes its after Labor Day time to put those white shoes away! HAHA
    Anyways my goals are to stay in control and stay calm...come what may.
    I see the neurosurgeon tomarro so we will see what help that will be.
    I stay positive and DO in spite just trying not to OVER do my exercise...so that I can continue.
    Workdays I do not much but the otherdays do about 2 hrs. Today did 4 miles and 2 miles up was 800 ft gain and most of that was in 1 mile. Puppy is going with me so I am going slower which is good for both of us.Now will do 1 1/2 hrs weights.
