Hey 2015, it’s me, Theresa! (nickname, spirit animal, real name, blog name)

This year I would like to conquer some fears, complete the Blue Ridge Mountain Marathon, and run a 50k trail race.
It would also be super duper awesome if I also advanced my yoga practice this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because I deserve it.

The thing I am looking forward to most this year is running Blue Ridge with my Partner in Crime.

I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is a banana protein shake and PlowOn Gum to help me get up, get my butt moving and get after my #NoExcuses 2015.
Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is "I'm too weak" and I have used it to get out of doing pull-ups and upper body work on more than a million (number) occasions.

I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to do all the upper body exercises I hate and possibly burpees (dont' hold me to that last part.) Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog cat in the middle of the night, I'll still get my assets moving. I will stop blaming the gremlins for eating the rest of the plantain chips when everyone knows it was really me.

My work schedule [job, hair, car, husband, kids] are not the reason I make excuses. I will show my work schedule [same as before] who's boss this year and get my run [type of sweaty activity] on.

I know that running and weight lifting [type of workout] is better than ice cream. [noun] I will reward myself by getting pedicures (my apologies to the poor woman that has to do them.

No Excuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a 1208 Ladies Jazzy Open Back Tank (article of clothing) from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and funk free (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking Utthita Trikonasana[yoga pose / workout move] in new capri-me 3/4 leggings [article of clothing from Actio926] from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my core [noun] with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my next Half Marathon [distance] race with Sasquatch Racing.

Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my favorite hooded pull-over [article of clothing] will smell in my / during my vinyasa yoga class [favorite type of workout] after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!

Now Tag, Tweet, shout-out, call, text, fax or email 3 friends to take this survey and share how they will have a #NoExcuses 2015. Remind your friends to simply fill in the underlined parts! 

Love, Theresa

  1. My school schedule is definitely what stops me up from working out the most. :[ But hooray for no longer making excuses! :] Best of luck to you on your races and in conquering your fears! <3

    1. Thank you, Farrah. We're going to make 2015 epic.

  2. I hate burpees too! This was fun to do wasn't it? I'm working on mine. #NOExcuses

    1. Absolutely, Deborah. Anyone that says they like burpees is full of it.
