Challenge Update

I will say that I have been exercising all 10 - well, we are into 12 now - days of October so far. I will also say that there have been one or two days that I have not done the full 2 hours....BUT I have gotten in a good 1 hour and even 1.5 hours on those few days. I have ended up having my son for more days then I should have this last week (not complaining), but he really is messing up my MOJO of what I had planned to do, wanted to do and allow me to kick start myself. I had a light bulb go off for me this morning - using my "mommy" factor as an excuse over and over again is no reason for me to not to do what I want to accomplish!!!!! I have my schedule all worked out and I should not let this little obstacle get in my way. He will be back in school this next week, so I have to have this schedule down pat - no excuses!!! Carrying too many emotions and I am letting that control my WANT to work out. Last night it was not until a little after 9 pm when I was able to work out. I didn't really want to, but was really surprised when the next thing I knew it was 11 pm and I had done a good workout. Yes, it is really late to be working out, but this is my time to veg and watch the in the process, why not get in a workout!! Guess what - part way into it I wanted to keep going. I could not wait to finish...because I was going to grab that gold ring and have completed another day of this challenge. I was feeling good - recharged - my mind was racing, but in a good way.

I am not going to let the excuses get in the way. I have 20 more days to complete my October challenge and nothing is going to stop me!!! I am strong, powerful and I am will be victorious!!!! Watch me go!!!!!!!!

Staying MOtivated MO
