back at it

Thank you all for your sweet comments from yesterdays post. I cannot even put into words just how motivating that is for me!

I did it! I got up at 5:45 and was at the gym by 6:15. It took me a little while to wake up and get my contacts in but by the time I was fine. I did 2 miles on the treadmill in 45 minutes and made sure to bump up the incline on the really good songs :)

I got home, took a shower, had my Trader Joe's O's with strawberries and just about to have my coffee and it's only 7:30! It seems I can manage at least a little Today Show time for myself AND work out! More importantly, I know this is going to give me the energy I need to keep up with 2 jobs, 2 dogs and and a ridiculously clean house.

I would love it if I could do lunch time workouts but there seems to be too may variables in my schedule by that point in the day. Too much room for excuses so for now I'm going to get up in the mornings and do this. I don't have a plan other than walking the rest of this week and starting back at week 1 of couch to 5k next week. I think I enjoyed it so much last time because there were weekly, attainable goals.

Thank you again to everyone for helping pick me back up. I plan on doing some blog reading later this afternoon and catch up with you all!


  1. Good job, Tina!!! And may I just say that I giggled at "Trader Joe O's" - very clever!

  2. Your motivation motivates me! I just said "yes" to a 1/2 marathon in October - trainer says we can start with one mile.........if you get a chance, please visit my brand new blog at I could sure use some some new blogging buddies!

  3. Good for you Tina!! Glad to hear your getting back in your groove! :-)

  4. GO YOU!!!!

    refinding the groove is the worst and the number one motivator for me not to let my groove run away.

    have a great weekend.


  5. Glad you're back in the groove. Takes a while to get back into a routine, but you're well on your way. Good luck to you!! You can do it.
