Today is the Day that I start blogging on a regular basis. The day that I decide to put some effort into this hobby that I really enjoy. I’m going to start putting it out there, so that other people can read, judge, critique or maybe even benefit from the things that are going on in my life.
Last Monday April 27th, I decided to start #Move100days. That is that I am going to purposefully move every single day for 100 days in a row. Then on May 1st, I decided to also start #Move100inMay. It seemed to just go hand in hand with the other promise I had just made to myself. It is May 4th, and I have moved each of the last 8 days and so far in may I have moved 12.58 Miles. I love working out, feeling good about myself, but more than that I love challenges. I simply love just being able to say that I have accomplished specific goals.
I wake up at 5am most workday mornings, so that I can go to the gym for 30 mins before my husband needs to leave for work and I’m home to get the kids ready for the day. Sometimes it is hard to get out of bed that early, but usually within the first 5 minutes I’m so happy that I did. I look at going to the gym as a reward. A reward to myself, 30 minutes of uninterrupted me time. I listen to music on my phone and read books on my Ipad while moving on the Arc Trainer. Some of my friends say, “how do you do all of those things at the same time?”, my only response is that I have to. It is my ME time, time to read books that I want to read (not childrens books), listen to music that I want to listen to (may contain explicit lyrics) and just get into a zone to do good for my body. When I start a day like this, there is no stopping me.
Working out in the morning gets my whole day off to a great start. I want to eat better, drink a lot of water, I’m in a much better mood and I just feel fantastic! All I’m looking for is to get the best performance out of myself. I want to be the best me that I can for my family. They are the best part of me and they deserve to have a happy, healthy wife and mama!!
Happy Monday! I will see you soon.
