Monday Motivation

Happy daylight! Driving home in the light was such a treat tonight. I could actually see the potholes before I ran them over. In other news, I thought I was going to have to take a nap on my desk at work. But spring is in the air, I can smell it! Makes me want to run around. I’m not sure if any of those sentences made any sense, I have no concept of time and I think I may have lost some brain cells with this time change… who knows. Maybe I’ll have better luck tomorrow.

Here’s motivation. I need it. daily-motivation-25-photos-214 da-mo-105

“Spring Ahead” calls for extra funnies this week. One thing that is not funny? Losing an hour of sleep.

Oh happy week!

Happy Monday! I’m really hoping this “never miss a Monday” gets me on the same track for blogging as it does running. So far I’m two for two! And as excited as I am to go to sleep and try out this new sleeping app… you know, one of those ones that is suppose to wake you up when you are in your lightest sleep… I had to get in my Monday motivation to keep me going the rest of this week!

So here we goooooo!





And humor. Because the snow here in New Hampshire is a joke.


Beware: this is about to get nerdy…

Happy Monday! Not sure what it is all of a sudden, but I’m finally feeling super motivated. When I got home from work I had a great 30 minute cycle workout before dinner which is just what I needed. My day started off in a pretty foul mood since it was snowing and I had to brave the roads to go to work. Like… when is it not snowing? It can calm down.

So if you started off your day like mine, here’s a little pick-me-up:






And lucky for you, my mood this morning left me feeling super sassy:









I hope you all have a great week!

Happy Monday! Yesterday’s Super Bowl outcome has New Hampshire in a very happy state right now despite all the snow coming down. Yes, it’s snowing, what else is new?

I tried to beat the snow to work this morning and arrived at 6:45. The snow won. It started at 2 am. Worried about later weather conditions for commuting home, I bailed early and can now work from the safely and comfort of my…. bed. Let’s hope I can be productive.

Here’s some motivation for your Monday:




And some jokes (just like this snow we’re having:






Have a great day!!!! 🙂

Happy Monday! More importantly: Happy Christmas Weeeeekkkkk! I only have to work two days this week and I’m almost through the first one! Tonight I need to finish my Christmas shopping and I can’t wait to give everyone the perfect gifts this year. I think I went a little overboard. I know I did. But it’s the season for giving and I would rather give someone something thoughtful than something they will never use or already have. What boggles my mind is that I’m still getting emails telling me I can get things ordered and shipped by Christmas. In my mind I’m like uhhhhhhh are you hand delivering it to my house on Christmas day? The poor postal service. They deserve some cookies. Adding that to my list of things to do this week.

With a few days off comes plenty of time for running! It’s going to be rainy on Christmas Eve and day but I can’t let that stop me! Here’s a little motivation for your Monday:

What’s Getting Me Through

Happy Wednesday! This week is flying by, but I finally set aside some time to do laundry that I have been putting off for weeks (yes I can go that long without doing it which is embarrassing). In the winter, I feel like I can at least wear running pants twice before washing since I don’t sweat as much. I also have a fear of stretching them out from over washing. Not that I even have to worry about this since the only time I really get out is on the weekends for now. Good news though, it’s only days before the days start getting longer again… yippee!

Here’s what is getting me through this week…


Being Basic

I stepped out to go Christmas shopping earlier this week in full on trendy attire. I did my hair and makeup, wore a plaid flannel button down, and embraced some more plaid with the lining of my jacket. I also rocked skinny jeans with leather boots. I felt like I stepped right out of a fashion blog. If only everyday I could put that much effort into getting dressed.



I won a Halo Headband!! I was randomly selected on Instagram to chose my favorite color and headband and it is now on the way! I felt like I had won the lottery. I mean, how cool is it that they found my Instagram account and chose me to win one out of all the 5000 million billion running related accounts out there. Thanks Halo Headbands!!


Almost the (Running) Weekend

I look forward to the weekends so much. It’s not for a chance to sleep in, go shopping, or stay out late. It’s that I finally can run in daylight. After the past weekend of running Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I was feeling pretty good! I hope I can have another streak like that this coming weekend as well!


This Quote.

I love motivational quotes. I mentioned it in my last post but here it is again. And I still love it and it’s totally true. Training not only taught me how to run 26.2 miles, it taught me discipline, sacrifice, and determination. I feel confident I can do almost anything just from running that distance.


Christmas Decor. 

It’s everywhere. And I love it. My boss got sent this awesome plant(?) this week that is fully equipped with Christmas lights that you plug in. Christmas is only eight days away and I still don’t feel fully decorated. There is so much to do still!!!

Have a great rest of your week! Don’t get too angry at people at the mall 🙂

Monday Motivation

Happy Monday! I hope you all are getting in the holiday spirit out there and have a few vacation days ahead!

I can across a quote this week by Susan Sidoriak that said, “I date you to train for a marathon, and not have it change your life.” I mean that is right on… I have never been more motivation or inspired to do anything since my marathon. It’s kind of like anything is now possible. The only problem is training for a marathon seems easier than trying to be a CPA at this point… but I just need to keep trucking on and reminding myself that all the “training” towards taking the exams will be worth it in the end! Trying to pass these exams is definitely like training for a big race. You have to pace yourself, not let yourself get too overwhelmed, and have a game plan.

Here’s a few things to get you motivated this week:




And some things to make you smile:
