Motivation for the New Year!

Hey everyone, long time no see.  I was off shopping in Oregon and loving the “no tax” there:)  Plus I hit 3 Nike outlets and multiple other outlet stores and got some great deals.  I am slowly chipping away at my Christmas list, and just have a few more things to buy.  Slowly but surely I will be ready for Christmas.

I was a good girl and I used the hotel gym while I was gone.  Although it was a bit small and didn’t have a whole lot of options.  I am pretty good about making it work with little to no equipment but sometimes it’s fun to have options.

So, I hit the treadmill for 2 miles and did some push-ups, squats, and bicycle crunches, then headed out to shop.  I should have worn my Nike Fuel Band while I was away since I know I walked many miles doing all that shopping.

Does anyone else get exhausted while shopping?  I can run a half marathon and be less tired than doing just one hour of shopping at the mall.

Anyways, the main reason for this post is to tell you how I am going to stay motivated in the New Year.  I have decided to host another Dietbet challenge!  I am so excited about this.  I hosted one of these challenges in the past and it really motivated me to eat right and stay on track with my workouts.

dietbetOn top of that my 18 participants lost 111.5 lbs.!  So awesome!

This Dietbet will be even better with prizes and bi-weekly workouts included.  I hope you will join me in this challenge that will run from January 1st to the 29th.  Click here to read more and sign up!

Will you join me in starting off your New Year with a healthy bang?!

Have a great day and happy running!





  1. Just joined 🙂

  2. Love your motivation plan!!!
    Glad you had some success shopping – the places you hit up would have been hard for me to shop for anyone other than myself!

  3. I’m amazed at how I could shop for hours and hours when I was in my teens/20s. Now I’m exhausted after 3 hours.

  4. Great idea to get in a workout before shopping. Shopping is exhausting and afterwards, I want to nap!

  5. I need to join, need the extra motivation.

  6. when i saw that pic that you posted of the hotel gym, all i could think was “my Lord i hope she doesn’t trip on that treadmill because it was SO CLOSE to the wall!!” random, sorry 🙂
