So this morning I did something I don't recall ever doing before (maybe once). I got up before my family, got dressed, drove to the park, and did a Couch to 5K training session. I was back home before anyone else was awake.
I've always felt that if I could just get up much earlier than my family, I would feel less stressed and in general be a happier person. As it is right now, when I wake up it's instant rushing and whining and yelling. Not a great way to start a day. Today I feel calm and centered and when Danger was reluctant to get dressed (as usual) I handled it much better than I normally would. Maybe this 5k training program will be the beginning of a new calmer me!
I did weights Monday night, Zumba last night (dragging Zapamundo with me) and ran this morning. I'll also be doing weights tonight. So yes, I'm feeling very accomplished...now if the scale would just follow suit...I'm sure it will soon. Stay tuned!
