Keeping fit in a college lifestyle

Staying Motivated

Staying motivated and focused on eating right and staying active can be difficult. I have heard so many people say they can’t find ways to stay on track, so I thought I would share a few ways I am staying motivated right now.

To stay focused this Fall semester I have decided to sign up for 2 5K runs…..but not just any run. I signed up for the craziest run on Earth!

I checked online about..well everyday…for when registrations opened.

The Color Run visits all different cities in America and you have to sign up quick before it gets booked up.

I jumped up and down and did a little happy dance when I found out I got in and get to be part of the run!

-The first Color Run is in October, I am doing that run with my friends here at the University! We are in the process of coming up with a team name.

-The 2nd Color Run is in November which I will be doing with my dad in Charlotte. How great is my dad for doing this with me!

Try and find something that will keep you excited and focused so you can reach your goal!

After walking past the rock wall in my gym so many times I have decided I have to attempt to climb it before I graduate.

This wall is HUGE…and right smack dab in the middle of the gym (Aka. where everyone in the entire gym can stare at you attempting to get up this thing)

Obviously I am scared to try this…ahhh.

Climbing this wall would be a whole different way to challenge my body and muscles.

I am focused to stay on track so that I can reach my goal and climb this INTIMIDATING rock wall!

What ways do you stay motivated and focused to keep eating right and exercising?

    Ahh I’m so jealous you’re doing the color run! I wish it was a different weekend or I’d love to join! Races are my favorite way to stay motivated, I always feel like I need something to work towards or I’ll get burnt out very easily. Can’t wait to see you when I cross the finish line on Monday my dear:) hint hint….

    By the way, your blog is too precious and so are you:)

  2. I wish you could do it with us! I of course am going to cheer you on on Monday!
