I'm MAD fired up for #NOEXCUSES 2015


Hey 2015, it’s me, Wendy from Taking the Long Way Home!  (nickname, spirit animal, real name, blog name) Marcia from Marcia's Healthy Slice tagged me to play along...

This year I would like to stay injury freebe more positive_, and slow down the aging process.
It would also be super duper awesome if I also did spend more time with my boys this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because time marches on.
The thing I am looking forward to most this year is running a sub 4 marathon and a sub 2 half marathon.
I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is_coffee_to help me get up, get dressed, (verb) and get after my #NoExcuses 2015. Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is work and I have used it to get out of doing everything and anything on more than a million occasions.I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to get up earlier.
Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog in the middle of the night, I’ll still get up. 
I will stop blaming the husband for eating the rest of the Ben and Jerry's Karamel Sutra when everyone knows it was really me.
My job  are not the reason I make excuses. I will show my job [same as before] who’s boss this year and get my run [type of sweaty activity] on
I know that run [type of workout] is better than no run. [noun]
I will reward myself by drinking wine. 

#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 awesome (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking dealifts [yoga pose / workout move] in new Own the Course top [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 mycore strength [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 race [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!

  1. I hope I can stay injury free as well this yr. Coffee always helps me in the morning too. Without it I have trouble functioning. And there's nothing like a good glass of wine after a great run!-L

I am waiting to see if my marathon training is going to be able to continue, next week (bone scan test) I will be very sad if I truly have a fracture and have to take time to heal.

    1. I hope you don't have a stress fracture! Been there, done that, and it's tough to be in the boot while everyone else is running.
