Hey guys! Can you believe it? We’re 8 days from the end of the month. It doesn’t feel like it at all, yet here we are. I hope the new year has started off well for you. As for me? Well, I haven’t quite gotten on track with my fitness goals. I was supposed to start up at the gym, but life has continued to get in the way. Funny thing though, a co-worker of mine mentioned going to the gym before work and I thought to myself “well, I used to do that before. Go to sleep insanely early, wake up at 2am, get my gym on to start the day, and go to work and have nothing to worry about going to back to the gym for post work. Can’t hurt. You, by your own design, have no post work social life, so what are you missing out on? Do it again!”
Well, this was Monday and since Tuesdays are grandparents day and a late arrival back to the house, I decided to start this morning. I’m really glad that I did. After cleaning the kitchen up a bit last night, I got into bed around 7:15, set my alarm for 3:20am, and got in my full 8 hours. For as much as I did not want to get out of my bed this morning, I forced myself up, drove the 3 minutes to the gym, and got in my workout. I would have had plenty of time to spare this morning to make breakfast, clean the kitchen up, shower, and get ready for work, but my hood cat decided to pay me a visit again when I got back from the gym after about a week away. I won’t lie. I missed her a lot, but damn did she throw a wrench into my new morning routine. See, the thing is that she really wanted my love and attention and after she was almost over it, she decided to reacquaint herself with my flat. She was even getting brave and jumping on my damn kitchen counters. I almost resorted to drastic measures and pulled out a lime as cats hate citrus, but decided that she just wanted my attention since she hadn’t seen me in a week and let it go. She eventually got the hint that I did not appreciate her on my counters and laid on my living room carpet instead. I made my breakfast but was running about 30-45 minutes later than I could have been if she wasn’t there. UGH! Can’t blame her though. She’s just too cool for me to be upset. Haha!
Anyway, here I am now. Playing tricks BACK on my brain. It didn’t want to go to the gym after work? Fine with me! We’ll go before work. Two can play that game, brain and I think I’m going to win! That bet I made with my friend about owing her $113 if I don’t get to my goal by October may not be lost after all!
Wish me luck!
