Energized. That’s how I feel after a morning workout. Regardless of how late I stay up the night before (1 A.M.) to how early I have to get up (6:30 A.M.) (I really need to go to bed early if I have an early alarm clock), I still feel amazing after working out in the morning. Granted it takes a lot more mentally to pull me out of bed but it is ALL worth it.

Food was as planned. And of course very delicious.
A lot of people have been commenting on my posts recently about how impressed they are with my running streak and how they wish they could do it too. Or how they are impressed by my schedule and how I can get everything accomplished because they want to as well. YOU CAN DO IT! I’ll admit, the 2nd time around with this running streak was not as daunting as the first time when I was afraid of 38 consecutive days with no rest day. Now it’s like I’m an old hat. Same thing with scheduling and getting things done. If you have it written down and you can physically see what you need to do then you CAN DO IT! I have faith in you. You just need to be able to translate what you need to do mentally onto paper (or computer) so that you can cross it off as you get things accomplished. By physically being able to see all you’ve gotten done in the day you can feel better about how you’re spending your time. So stop writing “I wish I could do this” and get out there AND DO IT! (No, not pointed at one or two individuals, but to ya’ll at large)
Oh, and the cats thank you for all of your complements. That is about as close as they get, unless they are fighting with each other. But it is big strides from when they were both younger and laid at opposite ends of the bed.
