I need to do myself a hot favor and just suck it up.

My baby sister sent me this picture.
I'm not sure where she found it, but I really like it.
I registered for my first 5k today, a Color Run, specifically. I'm hoping to do at least two this summer. I think the other one I'll run will likely be before my Color Run.

I also lost 3.6 pounds today.

I am getting really close to a milestone.

And yet...here I sit, with no motivation to get my run back on.

It's cold outside. Apparently Michigan hasn't quite received the memo that it's time for warm weather.

I am just full of excuses and whininess and hot mess today.

I had better get over myself quickly. The trainer is out of town presently, but I'm expecting an impending doom email about my workout assignments any minute now. And then when he ascends upon Michigan to kick my ass gets back, I may as well plan to bust my butt. I'm pretty sure the sentence, "You're doing well now, but when I get back, get ready to puke," came out of his mouth SEVERAL times.

So why do I say all of this? Because I want to remember that there were days I didn't want do it when I'm at the end of my goal. I want to remember that even though I was whining and complaining, that going out that day was totally worth it..

I want to remember that there are some days I'm not going to be feeling it, even when I've lost weight and signed up for events to keep myself motivated.

But I just gotta keep going. I just gotta.

Happy Tuesday.
