I don’t have much time tonight as I want to relax with the husband a bit but I wanted to post real quick about momentum. I started this week with a Super Sensational Sunday and it has really set the tone for me. Tomorrow is thursday and I feel like I’ve made it through the week already.
That sounds bad doesn’t it? But you know what I mean. When you are trying to keep a happy family, eat healthy meals at home, send your kid to school with good lunches, have fresh fruit on hand and cleaned for snacks, get some "me" workout time in all while working full time, it’s tough. "Getting through" is about the only way to describe it.
That being said, "Getting through" my week has been much easier with a little bit of planning. It has really made all the difference. Plus I refuse to lose my momentum. Monday was a tough day at work but I still came home and made tacos. Tuesday I woke up in my running clothes and that made it so much easier to get my butt out the door for a run. Which I needed, I wanted, before starting my long day at work (been working on a bug I couldn’t figure out.) Tuesday night I had meat defrosted for dinner and the family got some activity in with an old fashion game of tag at the park. This morning I grabbed lunch along with my gym bag so I could get to Yoga after work.
Not bad. huh? :)
It didn’t all just fall into place.. we hit some snags. I forgot my lunch on tuesday. Dishes were piled in the sink overnight. I was 15 minutes late for yoga. Our apartment could be cleaner. But hey… we deal.. right? We do the work for the things that are important to us.
So I’m off. I need some down time tonight. My workout clothes are on and I’m prepared for another training run tomorrow. Oh! AND lunches are made AND I have chicken defrosting for a crock pot idea I’m going to try tomorrow.
Momentum people… momentum. ;~)
