Ever have a bad day?

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

My husband jokes that I get up "in the middle of the night" to get ready for work. It's not actually the middle of the night, but it is very early in the morning (3:45 a.m.). I have a long commute to work and even though I have been working in the same office complex for 25 years & getting up very early in the morning, I am STILL not a morning person. It's really hard to be this chipper this early in the morning when I'd love to sleep for another couple of hours.

After a long day at work, the LAST thing I want to do is go to the gym, but I really can't get up any earlier, so we work with what we have, right? But, I go to the gym most every evening on my way home from work. It's not only good for my health, but it keeps me from taking out my frustrations of the day on DH when I get home.

The biggest plus is that I feel AMAZINGLY wonderful by the time I get home. I hold onto that feeling every day so that I make sure I go to the gym before I come home.

So today, gym bag packed -- check; ice water -- check; gym shoes -- check. I'm ready for Zumba class this evening!!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!! Blessings to you!! emoticon

    Augh! 0530 is early for me, but you're right letting Zumba destress you. Great planning on your part.
    Have a great day (I'm getting started now--you've been up for hours!) emoticon

    I would say that you're really motivated to be able to get up that early and then on your way home you still stop at the gym and exercise. Good for you! emoticon

    Wow, 3.45 am! You must love your job so much so much if you stayed for so long.
    I do agree about effect of exercising. I call it my happy pill. It does make me feel amazing!

    Have a wonderful day!
