Pep (?) Talk

First, congratulations, Katy, for winning 1st place in her age group in the 10K she ran this Saturday!

We're entering Month 2 of our 90-Day WellQuest Challenge, and I see it as kind of a Hump Day. We're smack dab in the middle; the "newness" of Month 1 has worn off, and we don't have the "FInish Line" of Month 3 looming in the horizon. Therefore, we need to work extra hard at encouraging each other to stick to our commitment.

As we've all witnessed changes in our bodies (looking & feeling better), it's easy to think we can slack off a bit. The little devil on our kettlebell-bruised shoulder might be whispering, "It's OK to skip one workout, look how much you've already accomplished." Or, "It's your Dad's birthday, you deserve that piece of cake."

Our families may be a bit tired of our disruptive training schedule or accommodating our new diets. I know that reading ingredients (yawn) and measuring food portions has become really tedious. And I'm not as excited about Fridays knowing the day isn't over until after Boot Camp.

But, do we really want to look Laurel and Mike in the eye when we're applauding the contest winners instead of standing on that stage?

Gee, for a pep talk, I'm certainly lacking in the exclamation points. (Sorry, I never made the cheerleading squad). So, here we go:
  • Give me a "G," give me a "T," give me an "O," give me a "K," give me an "O"! Go GTO KOs!!!!
  • Sundresses, Bathing Suits, and tank tops, oh my!!
  • and Ricky Bobby's motto: "If you're not first, you're last."

Go Team!!

  1. I so understand where you are coming from! I keep thinking, "Hmm, can't I just have ONE extra large plate of Mexican food? I DESERVE it". I am so over measuring and reading! It makes sense and I do feel better, but I also want to waive my fists and complain. :-)
