As Promised.....Kinda

Ok so it's not sunshine and puppy dogs but it IS about inspiration today....

I've been kinda bored with my workouts lately (aka running endless miles on the treadmill) so I've been trying to switch it up.

I've gone to hot yoga

I went to a cold, rainy, cold, dark, cold bootcamp session

And I had plans to run trails with friends....which got rained out but will get rescheduled!

My beautiful friends in Atlanta are SUPERFIT people and I love it

They inspire me.....and remind me that....

It's not about being skinny

It's about liking loving your body

It's about being healthy

It's about being inspired!

I think that you need to be my personal workout coach and tell me what I need to do each day. I think you should be my motivation. ;) (p.s. I'm only partly joking)

Rorie said...

I just made myself do a motivational post to work out more on Monday because I am feeling the same way!!

Your blog is so awesome!! I'm seriously loving it and look forward to all your posts! I got in really good shape before my wedding (last May) and then totally slacked after the honeymoon and put on a bunch of weight.

I'm back on track now, down 8 pounds with roughly 12-15 more to go and your blog ROCKS with keeping me motivated :)

Amy G. said...

Love this! I posted something like it earlier in the week. It's amazing have good friends that encourage you to be a better person! Wish I was in Atlanta to go on trail runs with you!!!

Samantha said...

Thanks for the inspiration...I am slowly getting better at being consistent with working out :)

Sarah said...

love love love! I've been wanting to try hot yoga but haven't found anyone who wants to go with me. Plus I wanna shed a few pounds before I go since I've heard you practically wear nothing. gross.

Rissy said...

i'm not sure why i keep going back, but i do hot yoga a few times a week but its pure torture. i need to get into hot wedding hot bod shape though...

Shannon said...

love it. I just got back into my daily fitness classes. On top of my boot camp class, I'm taking zumba twice a week too. It's so much fun and a great cardio workout.

Let's see the baby fat go away now!!! Summer is approaching!

Ashley said...

thanks for the inspiration, ash!!
seeing pics like that def makes me think twice about getting junk food and not going to the gym. yesterday, i almost talked myself out of going to workout, but i went anyway!

i miss running. i need a runner partner up here in pa :(

you should do a post on how you stay so fit. like share EVERY detail! haha ;0

Maura said...

Love this! Thanks for the motivation!

twiggy@thedirtlife said...

i love the one that says "you make your body" (something to that effect anyways). i agree with this whole-heartedly and have spent some years working out-and working out hard.

and...i love it.

once you get started, well, you just can't stop!

Ashley Slater said...

yes! love you. husband and I are starting to train for a triathalon! WOOP! (and....YIKES!)

xoxoxo

um, and I miss you a lot. I have almost called you a few times but then I am like "too much?"....haha

erin rae mac said...

yes, ma'am! at times i find myself wishing i could do this and that like her or her but i just remind myself what iiii can do and that's what should count!! :o)

Jenna said...

Love this - who couldn't use a healthy dose of workout inspiration!? I'm also trying to switch up my workout routine this year by doing more classes at the gym instead of just running on the treadmill :)

Michaela said...

Love this! I'm trying to do more work out related stuff...I've found that hot yoga is my favorite, so I do it once a week now :) hooray!

Meg {henninglove} said...

i am in the i need a bit of running break mode right now too. planning on doing bikram yoga tonight, the glorious feeling i get after doing that. trying a different exercise can definitely help get over a running funk

Britt said...

I want to look as hot as all these women in your post. I guess it means I will be heading to the gym tonight...

How was hot yoga? I have been meaning to try it.

Shayla Y.F.F. said...

thanks for sharing...going to the gym now!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

It IS about loving your body and being healthy! I love that!

meghan said...

This is a great post! I love motivational posts and am very inspired by this one. Since cross training a lot more lately I really have become more concerned with being more in shape and loving my body rather than just losing weight. I'm now caring more about toning and feeling healthy than what the scale says.

Alyssa said...

I love this post!! I have a whole board on Pinterest that I named "Motivation" and it's all pictures similar to the ones in this post!

Sara Louise said...

It's not about being skinny... I love that!
