Well my friends, I'm even more motivated today than yesterday, if that's possible.

This week has been incredible so far.  I know it's only Wednesday, but I have high hopes and great outlooks for the rest of the week AND the rest of this month actually.  I busted my butt at the gym this morning and intend to go for a quick little jog/run this afternoon along the beach too- the weather is just too nice to avoid the outdoors any longer.  I've been reading everyone else's blogs and it seems I'm not the only one caught with a rampage bug.  I love it- you guys seriously inspire me to keep going and I'm thankful that you're on this journey too, and blogging about it too, so I can keep going.

This morning I read a quote that inspired me as well; it said, "The only real control we have in this life is self control."  It hit me like a ton of bricks, and I've been thinking about it all day.  I was thinking about it this morning while busting it out at the gym too- I decided, you can do an extra five minutes D because you're worth it, this rampage is worth it, and right now you have self control.  And I did an extra five minutes of cardio on the stairmaster.

I took my vitamins for the first time today- with caution of course.  I think I will only take them every 2 days or so.  My body is healthy and strong and doesn't need to be weighed down with a bunch of vitamins and supplements.  I eat healthy and I know my body can take what it needs from the healthy foods i'm putting into my body.  I'm drinking my water and staying away from soda.  Ahhhhh....if only I could contain this motivation and inspiration forever.  If I could just sell it in a bottle...

Well my friends, as much as I'd love to sit and chat, I have to go.  Everyday I make a list of things I want to get done that day and that list is calling to me right now.  I have a lot of things to get done.  If you haven't worked out already- get out there and do it!  You'll feel so much better that you did.
