Motivate Me: Mondays

I {heart} Mondays. I know, I'm one of the weird ones. There's something about a Monday that feels like a fresh start. It's the day I re-commit to all of my goals -- the ones I stopped working toward last Tuesday. On Monday it all feels possible again.

I'm most hopeful on Mondays. The weight of the week doesn't drag me down. It is a day for setting my sights high.

I've been severely lacking in motivation lately. The summer drained me of all my energy. Moving drained me of all my inspiration. I wanted a rest. I needed to re-group.

But today (Monday) I feel better. So here are my goals for this week:

1. Write (or re-vise) every weekday.
2. Workouts: Monday (run - 3 miles & swim - 1 mile)
Tuesday (bike - 45 min)
Wednesday (strength) oh, how I adore cardio
Thursday (run - 45 min)
Friday (short run, or bike w/ daughter)
Saturday (long run - 50 min+)

I'm thinking I should post my goals every week and then check-in at the end of the week and see how I've done. Feel free to join me, just leave your goals in the comments.

I'm focusing on these two things this week. I usually have a tendency to overestimate how much I can actually do. But it is Monday and today, I feel invincible.

I'm not shooting too high here but I want to update my blog...maybe by the end of the week!

I love Mondays too! Most definitely my favorite day of the week--no wonder we're friends.
As for the goals---I might have to get back to you on those. Right now I'm just trying to stay positive. Does that count?
