I know I've said it before: I am going to do better with exercise, and I will eat better. However, this time I am serious.
I woke up at 4:47 a.m. to go to the bathroom, and realized that my alarm would ring at 4:50 a.m. so it made sense to turn off the alarm, go to the bathroom with my workout clothes already picked out and waiting. I got dressed. Went downstairs and popped in the DVD, and proceeded to do No More Trouble Zones with 3 lb weights. That was 55 minutes of pure *heck*. But I did it. I finished it, and I am on my way to exercising everyday.
My original goal in this journey to good health was to be active everyday. Somewhere along the journey, I took a detour and had to find my way back. I know that I am strong and fit. I can do this. I also have to keep fit for the Races that I plan to do this year. I hadn't been training on or off of the treadmill, as I should. I am hoping that when the weather is warmer and we've thawed that I can go outside to run in the early mornings. I am looking into getting a GPS watch so I can track my training.
I also packed my snacks and lunch for today. I have my energy bars stashed at work for when I can't get to my meals in time, like today when I will have back to back meetings and court. Crazy day.
Tonight, I will rejoice in the fact that I can just go to bed after the kids do, and do this all over again in the morning. Yay, me!
