All or Nothing

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

So last night I went to the gym...two days in a row!! I used to work at the gym that I go to so when i first got there it was time to socialize for a minute but then I got right to the precor machine and kicked ass for an hour! I honestly can not believe how much I miss working out! I love the gym!! It makes me mad that I have taken so much time off even if it wasn't my choice( I gave birth in August and my dr. would not allow me to work out due to critically low potassium). I am the type of person who easily becomes obsessed with working out. I am already planning to run a half marathon in May even though I can not start my training runs yet as I broke my ankle in August(yep when I was 8 months preggers!) Hoping to hit the gym 3-4 times a week minimum(it's hard with 3 kids and a hubby!) but if I can't I WILL workout at home!

While I was at the gym a friend of mine who still works there convinced me that i should join the Gold's Gym Challenge...12 weeks to a new body...the person who transforms their body the most will win a free membership to the gym and some cash and also be entered into a national Gold's sweep for $75,000. Ok so Im hooked..My friend totally convinced me that i could do this and be the winner especially since I am so determined to lose this weight asap! So let the challenge begin! Time to be even more strict than i am(I have been snacking here and there but that time has come to an end) and win this challenge! I may need a little encouragement along the way but I know I have my fellow Sparkers to help me along!

After my workout I was in the sauna and one of my all time favorite songs came on and I thought I would share the lyrics with you...if you have never heard go and download it...it is certainly a motivator! I had it on my half marathon playlist when I ran in 2010.

"All Or Nothing" by Athena Cage(Save the Last Dance soundtrack)

It's the chance of life, get ready, set, fly high.
Above the fear of your mind, go for it.
It's hit or miss, too late for you to quit.
You gotta show 'em how bad you really want this, so...

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem.
You gotta work to get the green, on your hopes you must lean
From your fears, you have to wean yourself.
It's all or nothing, give your everything...

Are what you believe, you got to bring the dreams.
Set the pace, competitions take the lead.
This is it, all eyes on you.
So stay on point and prove,
that you deserve whats long overdue.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem.
You gotta work to get the green, on your hopes you must lean
From your fears, you have to wean yourself.
It's all or nothing, give your everything...

My heart is still recovering,
From the heartbreak of another kind,
I'm still drying my tears.
Getting over my own fears in my life.
So I wanna make sure this time that I'm strong enough,
To give it my all...

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem.
You gotta work to get the green, on your hopes you must lean
From your fears, you have to wean yourself.
It's all or nothing, give your everything...

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem.
You gotta work to get the green, on your hopes you must lean
From your fears, you have to wean yourself.
It's all or nothing, give your everything...

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem.
You gotta work to get the green, on your hopes you must lean
From your fears, you have to wean yourself.
It's all or nothing, give your everything...

So you gotta live your dreams,
So don't you be afraid.
Just set the pace, and take the lead,
It's your time to shine.
Please believe .

remember we can do anything that we set our minds to..we just have to believe in ourselves!
