Going Through the Motions

Today I decided it was time for another push-up move for the 43.  I alternated moving one hand in front to do a push-up.


Because I wasn’t thinking clearly (or something!) I decided to count a right hand in front and left hand in front


as 1 rep.  Crikey!!!  Instead of 43 push-ups, I ended up doing 86!!!

Hunter is turning into a push-up machine!!  He did the number of push-ups to correspond with the day of the month every day for the month of March (31 last night!!).

Today I decided to get in a good run!  I ran on my treadmill (1.5% incline) – 8 miles 52:39 + 1.75 miles easier for a total of 77:15 minutes.  Hopefully later this week I will be outside running in shorts!!!

Do you ever feel like you are just going through the motions?  It could be with anything – working out, shopping, spending time with your family – whatever.  Just that feeling inside that says you should be doing more!!

who looked similar to the picture above.  She would get on her hamster wheel and just go and go (speedy little thing!) – but she wasn’t really making any progress.

Sometimes I feel like Emma the hamster – I just go and go, but what am I accomplishing? If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you know that I just recently passed my ACE Personal Training test.  But I haven’t done anything with it and I’m not sure if I’m going to.  I’m still trying to decide what I want to do with my life.

I love the time I get to spend with Chris and my boys and try to treasure every second of it.  But I feel like I should be doing more with my life!  The problem is, I don’t know what it is that I should be doing!!

I’m pretty sure that my newest addiction (thanks Keri and Vickie!!)Screen shot 2013-04-01 at 10.46.51 AMisn’t enough to satisfy my need to feel like I’m accomplishing something every day!  It is a fun thing to do on a short car trip, though!

I guess I will just keep trying to figure it out!!

On a completely different note – did anyone see the Louisville vs. Duke basketball game yesterday evening?  When Kevin Ware snapped his leg, my first thought was for his parents – I can’t even begin to imagine watching that happen to my child!!!  I just read an article saying he had emergency surgery and a rod was inserted into his leg.  I hope he is able to make a full recovery and return to the court next season!!!

Anyone else ever feel like you are just going through the motions until you figure out what your true purpose is?  Maybe you could just tell me you are so I won’t feel like the only grown-up who is still unsure what to be!!

Happy Monday – April Fool’s Day!!
