I spent the morning motivating myself to get MORE FIT!! Honestly I am VERY fit compared to 95% of the population BUT, I know I am about 50-70% as fit as I can get. I am in a “comfort zone” and plan to break through and GET MORE FIT!!
Some of the sites I visited today were very motivational…I read blogs by Tri-athletes, Olympians, Coaches, etc….I visited the OLYMPIC website. I checked out some cool “sports” including the Triathlon, Judo, Luge, and Modern Pentathlon~ Oh and did you know Women’s Boxing will be in the 2012 Summer Olympics for the first time?
I also visited some competition sites for events coming up near the Las Vegas Area…I figured that’s a fun place for friends (team buffmother) to possibly gather for a fitness event…Hmmmm….Just thinking 🙂 And I did some research on PH balance, water/sodium intake, Olympic lifting programs, training programs for triathletes and bodybuilders…It’s all very MOTIVATING stuff and makes me even more aware of the fact I KNOW I can get MORE FIT!!
Will you JOIN ME in that resolve?
