So Ronnie left a comment on my post yesterday that she, Andrea, Beth and maybe Fluffy will be doing the Color Run in Dallas! I think Dawnya said she may be doing one also. How fun! Maybe I should find an event that some AZ Bandsters could do with me. Hmmm...might have to ponder that one. I do have a group doing this one with me. My sister is attempting to run it with me (hope she's not disappointed if I end up walking most of it. Eek!). Hubby and 3 other friends are walking it with us. We had others who wanted to join us but the Color Run actually sold out here in Phoenix! That's a lot of people...hopefully it's not like overly crowded to where it's annoying.
So I'm starting the 30 Day Shred February 1st but I'm also trying to figure out ways to get more exercise in day to day. I used to really enjoy hiking and with the Climb to Cure Cancer at the end of February, I'd like to incorporate some more of that into my weekly routine. I'd also like Hubby to come along with me. The Challenge? My girls. They're still pretty small. My oldest is 6 and she enjoys hiking so that's not really the concern. It's the little one. I think she's going to get bored with it fairly quickly. Those of you with smaller kids, how did you handle incorporating your kids into your active lifestyle? I mean...they're past the point where I can put them on the back of my own bicycle or in a baby bjourne and just go. I may just make them suck it up and go. LOL.
I feel a mental shift starting. For the last few weeks, I've been perfectly content sitting around, doing virtually nothing in regards to getting fit. But I'm starting to get a little restless...wanting to do more...wanting to feel the way I was feeling this time last year. Could this be motivation rearing its head? Could this be my head finally getting screwed on tight again? Could this be the start of getting my stuff together finally? At the very least, I know I'm getting 3 miles in this week, come hell or high water. So that feels good. I know a car wash is definitely in my future tonight. Perhaps a family walk is too? We shall see.
