Got Motivation?

You'd think with my day off yesterday, and with all the extra sleep I got, that I'd be revived and ready to go today, but in fact, the opposite was true. This morning, it was like starting the week all over again (and if there's anything worse than a Monday, it's feeling like there are TWO Mondays in the week!); so when I got home this afternoon, what I wanted to do most in the world was lay on the couch and watch HGTV's "20 Ways to Add Value to Your Home" (I get suckered into countdowns like Brittney gets suckered into rehab -- there's some powerful need to see what will be number 1).

So, I had to dig deep into the motivational reservoir in order to haul my ass off the couch, put on my running clothes and lace up. It's hard to know why some days I can't wait to get out there and run and on other days -- despite the fact that I know it will feel good once I'm out there -- I have to force myself to run.

Anyway, I turned off the TV at "Number 6: Add a second story" (because, shit, I live in a condo, dudes: if we want a second story, we're gonna have to evict our upstairs neighbor) and I went for my 4 miler. And just as I knew would happen, once I was out there, I felt good, and I finished the miles in 37:54, and I was happy that I got the run in. Now, I have some pulled pork in the crockpot and I'm just waiting for Jerry to get home so we can dig in.

On the plus side of this Tuesday-holiday-business is that despite the fact that today felt like a Monday, it's really a Wednesday!

Two Mondays in a week, LOL! Glad you got up on #6 and went for that run. Get motivated girl you gotta a PR to catch this weekend :-)
I think I have seen that show..I believe number uno was bathrooms & kitchens.

Ted said...

Not a bad idea to evict your neighbor upstair if you really want to add value to your condo. Terrific idea!

Marcy said...

You and ME TOO chica, you and me too! It's been hard for me to get er going as well *sigh*

Mrs. K said...

Cassandra said...

Yay! Great run! You should evict your top neighbor, shave off their condo and have a giganto sky light.

Crystal said...

I had no energy today, either. Brian had to force me out for a walk with Wilson. At least tomorrow is Thursday already.

teacherwoman said...

So if it felt like a Monday and Friday feels like a Wednesday....Saturday is going to be a nice surprise!

MCM Mama said...

Glad you got out there! We had crockpot pork this week as well. Gotta love letting the crockpot do all the work.

Marlene said...

Good for you getting out the door when you really weren't in the mood... I don't know why it sometimes seems to take so much extra effort!


Mmmmm, dinner sounds yummy! I love crockpot meals - makes the whole house smell like DINNER!

Mendy said...

Those are the best kind of runs too, the ones we don't want.

Love HGTV...

Laurel said...

Evict the top neighbor. Times are tough.

This Tuesday holiday is a strange thing!

You need TiFaux! It'll change your life, I promise. I have about a dozen partial shows on my queue because I too NEED to know what's #1 on shows like that.

Jamoosh said...

My wife loves her some pulled pork. Do you deliver? No need to answer that.

TNTcoach Ken said...

I'd take a Wednesday off any week! Glad to hear your run went good, so log that in your memory next time you don't want to go out.

Wes said...

Ah, yes... There's a bright side to everything :-)

Heather said...

I felt like it was Monday all day too . . . still feel a little off. Maybe Veterans Day should just fall on mon or fri?

P.O.M. said...

I totally get suckered into shows like Housewives of Atlanta and Rock of Love Charm School. So pathetic.

Running Jen said...

Glad you enjoyed your day off. Good for you getting the run in. I was planning to run this morning after I dropped the little one at school, but it was already 78 degrees at 9am, so I ditched the idea!
