All or Nothing!

I had to laugh when I text L today 
and said "I just registered for a 5mile run!" 
& her reply was "goodness, you are so all or nothing!"
lol. It's true. I am. 
I can go from sitting on the couch for a week 
to spending 2 hours a night at the gym for a week. 
I am happy to say tonight was a gym night! 
and I ran two miles!
My family is running the Turkey Trot 
on Thanksgiving morning and has inspired me to join!
So this morning I signed Scott and I up :)
I am really excited!..Scott...well, he's kind of excited lol! 
Have you ever seen that commercial for nutri grain waffles?
where the mom is all hyped up jogging around the house 
and the kids are hiding saying "oh no Mom's on a health kick again!"
that mom is totally me!
So in my all or nothingness I have 8 days to get myself 
and my husband ready for the trot! 
ha. 8 days! I can do it! lol..I might pass out at the finish line
but it will be well worth it! 
Thanks Lenna for all your inspiration! 
I can't wait to be a real runner like you one day!!! 
That's all for now my little turkeys I have a 
date with Mr. Wandy to show my goodies in the morning 
I must get to bed! 

ah I found the commercial! freaking hilarious


  1. Lol! I never saw that commercial before - so funny!! That's so awesome, Alexis - you will do great! I am so all or nothing too! Lots of luck and love! Xoxox

  2. That sounds like so much fun, especially since you're doing it with your family. Can't wait to hear how it was. I hope I can run a 5k some day. We'll see. I like working out but I'm not fond of running.

  3. My mom informed me yesterday that we are having our Thanksgiving at dinner so she can participate in the Turkey Trot. Next year that is my goal!

  4. Good luck on the 5 miler, you can do it! Wootwoot!

  5. Awesome! I did a turkey trot one year and felt so much better pigging out that afternoon. Good during your eight days of training!

  6. Awesome, you're going to do great and you are a "real" runner already because you've started! Here are some of my favorite motivational quotes, this first one is one that I read to myself almost every time before I take off on a run and the second one was sent to me in 2009 from a friend when I first started running and I reread it often:

    "I run because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can't run, what they'd give to have this simple gift I take for granted, and I run harder for them. I know they would do the same for me."

    "Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells 'CAN'T", but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper 'CAN'. And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are."
