Right now... somewhere... someone is doing what it takes to get what they want... and what YOU want.
Are YOU willing to do what it takes to get what YOU want?!?!

OK let's try this one more time...
I tried giving myself a break from pt and it did help to have one less thing to think about.
But... I now have a new goal that I need to really focus on... I will be doing a Spartan Race next year.
My sister posted this thing on facebook and was asking who wanted to join her next year and I checked it out and said what the heck I will!
Well, it's a super hard obstacle race and it will require massive amount of strength that I do not have so it will mean I need to train hard to get ready. And once I thought about doing it I became almost obsessed with the thought and it's really got me revved up!
I have already signed up with a personal trainer at the gym (yes I finally have a gym membership!) and we start tonight.
I guess the thing that's got me so excited is that it's a new challenge for me - it's like NOTHING I've ever done before. So yeah I could have set a goal to run a PR in the half marathon or something like that, but the thought of that just wasn't enough to really keep me motivated. So the thought of actually being in bad-ass enough shape to do this race IS doing the trick :-)
