"If you are going to be a cheetah don't CHEAT" and
"If you are going to be a lion don't LIE"
I honestly couldn't contain my laughter, but luckily I was in the back row so I don't think he heard me. He even admitted that it was super cheesy but it actually kind of makes sense. He was basically saying that no matter what you do don't cheat yourself or lie to yourself. No one is going to really know how hard you are working out and only YOU can go as fast as a cheetah or as strong as a lion. I think this makes sense for any fitness related goals you may have and probably tons of other life goals, but I'm not getting THAT deep. It's up to you to run a little harder, a little farther, lift a little more weight, hold that plank a few seconds etc etc etc.
Are you all inspired to workout as hard as a cheetah or lion today? :)
And now for the boring what I did last week stuff that is really just so I have a place to look back at all my workouts since I can't seem to keep any sort of workout journal for longer than one week! Like I said last week I didn't have a real plan for working out, just sort of went with how I was feeling and I still did pretty well.
February 20-26, 2012
Monday: Chest & Tricep weights + bike for cardio
Tuesday: Back & Biceps + elliptical cardio
Wednesday: 4.9 mile run with Carol outdoors
Thursday: REST day - I even had my gym clothes on and everything but couldn't get myself out the door
Friday: Shoulders and 3.0 mile treadmill run
Saturday: Spin class plus BodyFlow class - great combo!
Sunday: 6.0 mile run with the pup outside followed by many glasses of champagne and appetizers while Oscar watching
I hit all my goals for the week minus lifting weights for my leg region of my body but my legs were pretty sore from the 15K plus hike the previous weekend so I called that my strength for my legs.

This week I plan on doing more of the same just going with the flow but I'm going to attempt to follow another one of Jamie Eason's strength routines just to change it up and try to run 3 times. I need to start channeling my inner Lion for runs for a while since the Mercer Island Half Marathon isn't exactly flat and I haven't been doing too many hills lately...
Question: Are you a lion or a cheetah? Have you heard any insanely cheesy motivational lines lately that you actually secretly love?
