|Strength 26.2 Brag Bar Charm|
And I am going to have to readjust. I had two weeks of not having to get up as early as I could work a bit longer if I made it to the gym later. Or I could go run solo after work as dear hubby was taking care of darling daughter. Then I had my vacation week where darling daughter could sleep in until 6:00 am and still get to the gym and go through our day as usual...on most days that is. What a wonderful life!
It is a good thing I really do love my away-from-home job and my co-workers or this getting back to reality would really be bringing me down. But I gotta say, the vision of being a stay at home mom pureeing foods, making healthy meals and muffins, running, playing, crocheting, and just being silly sounds quite heavenly. And yes, I realize stay at home moms work their butts off too with doing laundry, shopping, cleaning, cooking, gardening, insulating water heater pipes, etc. I did that too and yep, it was fun! But I guess it was so much fun since I felt I had 8 extra hours each day!
But back to reality and the 4:00 am, or earlier, wake-up calls. How did I do today? Flop. BIG FLOP. I just slept in a bit longer and skipped the pre-work run. It doesn't help that the gym opens later on Mondays so I know I have to be there at 5:00 am, opening time, and just have 30 minutes of running time before work. It tends to make me lazier at the start of a new week. But I would like to start the week strong.
So today when I finished showering and was dressed ready to go to work I took a slight detour. I went back into my room and got my new STRENGTH necklace (from Lift Your Sole), my power word for 2013, and put it on. I am strong. Sleeping in doesn't make me weak. In fact, it is going to take strength to run after picking up darling daughter from school and going to the grocery store. And I have the inner strength to do just that!
Now I just need to tap into my inner strength and NOT hit the snooze button tomorrow.
