My 31 day challenge

My certification workshop begins on the 11th of April. I will not show up to this thing looking like I've not worked out in ages.(Read: fluffy) Ok, so I've not worked out in ages. I could give you a list of reasons why I haven't but I won't (because if you know me at all you'll already know why, and it will be a rehashing of old news).
On the 11th of March I made a conscious decision (as opposed to those pesky unconscious ones) and I decreed that I will do something active each day leading up to this workshop. I will eat nothing but healthy foods. I will be mindful of portions.
Thus far, I have.
Yesterday I ran 2 miles with Harley.
The day before that I ran, lifted weights and took a yoga class.
And the day before that I ran, lifted, taught a water aerobics class, and jumped on an elliptical machine before training a couple of clients.
I think I'll take the dog out again today between church and work.
Check up on me, okay?

So are you going to get rid of the random thought of the day about ice cream?!?! What if it's sugar free all natural (read: no preservatives or additives) ice cream with real fruit pieces? That's okay right?

You're one hawt mama already...can't wait to see how you look after working it for a month! Can we celebrate your successes with a bbq...sometime...please?

I like to join you as soon as my hip is better. I have done something and put myself in horrible pain.

I do like bbq too, just saying. ; )

Keep chugging there, girl. As soon as I get done with my blog checking, I am going out to the garage and getting on the treadmill.

Ugh. I too need to get my hiney in gear, but I'm finding it extremely difficult to stay motivated. Sometimes I'm good at this and sometimes I'm not. I wish I could figure out exactly what makes me successful sometimes and not successful other times.

Will definitely check up on you. Am thinking you'll be ready. =)

Bbq sounds good.
