Last week I joined the #SweatPink #noexcuses challenge. It's been cool and motivating to see everyone sharing their workouts, recipes and other great ideas!
I saw this madlib and thought oh how fun, I haven't done one of these since I was a kid! But when it really came time to try to write mine, I was surprised at how difficult it seemed to identify - what are my excuses? what is holding me back? So here is what I discovered. Join the #SweatPink #noexcuses community and create your own madlib!
Hey 2015, it’s me, Emily
This year I would like to de-stress, _get my weight under control_, and start trail running.
It would also be super duper awesome if I also did _lost those pesky 15 pounds__ this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because I’m not getting any younger!.
The thing I am looking forward to most this year is my sister coming to spend the holidays with us
I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is_my internal alarm clock__to help me get up, get de-stressed, (verb) and get after my #NoExcuses 2015.Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is I deserve to indulge and I have used it to get out of doing eating healthy on more than a gazillion (number) occasions. I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to find other ways to reward myself.
Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog in the middle of the night, I’ll still wake up early.
I will stop blaming my son [ex: kids, dog, husband] for eating the rest of the chips when everyone knows it was really me.
My fear of being cold [job, hair, car, husband, kids] are not the reason I make excuses. I will show my self [same as before] who’s boss this year and get my run [type of sweaty activity] on
I know that any kind of workout [type of workout] is better than sitting on my booty eating chips. [noun]
I will reward myself by splurging on a manicure or facial.
#NoExcuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a Zeal Hoodie (article of clothing) from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and glowing (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking burpees [yoga pose / workout move] in new Rock the Course Leggings [article of clothing from Actio926] from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my abs [noun] with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my next half marathon [distance] race with Sasquatch Racing.
Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my hoodie [article of clothing] will smell in my / during my run [favorite type of workout] after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!
I just had a fantastic race yesterday at Rock n Roll Arizona, so I'd say I'm well on my way to achieving my goals for 2015!
