Alone With Myself
Wednesday, August 17, 2011
The kids are still sleeping, but I'm up...the baby walked into my bedroom at 5am and completely threw off my sleep. After putting her back to bed, I tried to fall back asleep. It didn't happen. My mind was filled with all the planning I have to do for the class I am tutoring. After lying in bed for what seemed like an eternity times infinity, I finally got up and enjoyed a quiet breakfast at 7:30am since I couldn't fall back asleep. That homemade bran muffin was GOOD and now I'm feeling full. My husband just left for work. "Smooches baby! Have a great day!" Now, my running shoes are calling my name but I want to go back to sleep. What do I do? I lie down, write this blog and mentally prepare to sweat-out like a mad woman with Coach Nicole for at least 30 minutes. I'm gonna pull my butt off this warm, cozy mattress and get it in high gear. This workout is for me and I am worth it.
I am naturally an extrovert. People energize me, but I am learning throughout this weight loss journey that I need my alone time. I need to be away from my kids, away from my husband, away from my respnsibilities and just BE. Now more than ever I am eager to sit quietly without any interruptions, mainly because my day is filled with so many of them. So, I'm alone with myself right now reveling in the beauty of a new day where the sun is shining, great things await, I'm alive and life is good.
