Does Santa Deliver Motivation to You Too?

I have to admit that up until yesterday my running/workout motivation has been extremely lacking. Actually, when I think back on it my motivation seemed to disappear right around July. Why?  Because that’s when I began doing both the BEFORE and AFTER school drop-off/pick-ups of the girls.  Unfortunately hubby started a new job where he could no longer do the morning drop-off for me, leaving me to do BOTH.

Ahhhhh  stress!!!!

Because of things like uncooperative kids, traffic, striking employees, and LOTS of construction, I had to spend quite a few of my lunch hours making up time instead of working out.  Boo.

Thank fully Santa delivered me a WHOLE PILE of running motivation to go with the new shoes that was delivered by FILA on Friday:

An iTunes Gift Card: (What songs should I download?)

A new running jacket from Lu Lu Lemon (and a Lu Lu Lemon Gift Card):

I’m thinking of picking myself up one of their warm headbands and a pair of their running gloves (you know the ones where you can still use your iPhone/Smartphone).

My running jacket sure kept me toasty warm on my run today even though it was crazy cold out:

And apparently tomorrow I’ll be running through snow:

And also singing and dancing with my homegirl Sierra on the new karaoke machine Santa brought for the girls:

I’m so glad that Santa knows me as well as he/she does – I was really lacking motivation, but with my new gear my mojo is BACK!!

Brag time: Tell me – what did Santa bring YOU for Christmas? How will it motivate you?

    He didn’t bring me anything fitness related. Although I did get a generic gift card that I plan on using to get a new HRM since I lost the wrist band to mine almost a year ago!
