Maxine's Challenge Week 6
Maxine’s Challenge week 6 has been all about motivation. If only I could feel as motivated before working out as I do afterwards! I’d even settle for feeling half as motivated. The weather has been absolutely perfect in Melbourne this weekend. I was meant to go for a run yesterday but I got too distracted by housework, what an existence! I did 4 loads of washing, 6 in total over the 2 day weekend, shopping for cards & presents for all the events coming up, a spot of gardening & then out for my best friend’s engagement party.

After eyeing off some cake at the engagement party, I came across the host’s sister, who is currently training for a fitness/bikini competition. Seeing her self-control helped me keep mine in check. So I opted for a taste of my husband’s first slice, yes he had more than one!

Today has been another pretty lazy day with more washing & household chores. I managed to go for the run that I skipped yesterday & feel great after it now. I’m thinking I might have to repeat a few weeks, if not repeat every week in the Couch to 5K program. My lungs & body just don’t seem to be coping with the increase each week. But I do think I’m on track to knock off two of my new year’s resolutions. They were also on last year’s list.

I’m thinking of making up my own little circuit training course to do as often as possible. I see a lot of short workouts posted on Pinterest that are along the lines of ‘do this before every shower & you will look fantastic’. All I need now is some motivation to come up with something. Then even more motivation to start doing it regularly!
