What has you moving this week?

I'm doing a link-up with Katie
button
The goal here is to post about fitness and to help motivate each other to keep on moving!

This week I have been motivated to move because I signed myself up for a 10k. It's this Saturday and I'm exciting and nervous. It'll be fun though because I'll be running it with my friend, Sophie!

This was me after my run. I was sweaty, beet red and exhausted. I ran like my life depended on it. Well to be quite honest, it does. 
I'm motivated to stay healthy and active. 


Okay, I know you're probably thinking this is vain of me to post a photo of my backside. 
Yes, it kind of is. 
But hear me out!
After having my kids, my sister jokingly made a comment to me that I had an Anna Nicole Smith bootie. You know, before she got skinny again. I was so offended and kept thinking to myself that I didn't want that. Ever since high school, that was my most favorite asset! lol And I was determined to get it back.
Thanks to squats, lunges and running I am on the road to non-Anna-Nicole-Smith-bootie syndrome!!
I hope you find ways to keep moving even if it is just a walk around the block. 
What keeps you moving this week?

  1. Hello! I am coming from the linkup and am a new follower!

    It looks like you are on your way to not having the bootie you used to have! That's great!

    Have a great Tuesday!

  2. Stopping by from Katie J's Spring Training Hop. Good luck on your 10K! I ran my first one last weekend. Well, ran/walked. Still finished and that's what matters. I'd love to know more about the run and hope you'll post about it next week. My running group is looking for one in the fall.
    Keep up the good work!

  4. Wow awesome that you signed up for a 10K to keep you motivated. I'm doing a C25K and have never actually run a 5K so hopefully I will get to that point and be able to sign up for a run to make it all seem "real" :) also great work on your non-Anna Nicole Smith booty hahah it's always nice to see some progress isn't it?

    1. The C25K is awesome, that's how I started getting in to this running thing! My first 5k was just a few months ago. I highly suggest looking for a color run near your home town. That run is the most fun 5k ever! And yes, I'm glad my anna-nicole days are in the past! lol Aren't brutally honest siblings a must? Thank goodness for her! Keep up the good work. I didn't realize how much of an accomplishment a 5k really is until I ran in an organized 5k. It's amazing, be sure to keep me posted on your progress and success! :)

  6. I love sweaty, beet red and exhausted after running photos. Makes me feel better that I'm not the only one that looks that way afterwards! And good luck on your 10K!
