I love Mondays… seriously.
I really took the weekend off. I think I hit the wall. I don’t think I have been that unproductive in months. Felt great. I just kept sleeping, napping, relaxing, sitting…
I mean, there were a few little shining moments. I re0rganized 3 or 4 drawers in my scrapbook room. But now the whole thing is just a big disaster. Way worse than when I started. Sigh.
Anyway… Capri is 6 weeks today. (I can’t believe it)
And once 6 weeks comes…excuses go! Time to exercise again. I am not one of those people who despise exercise. I love it. I consider it an opportunity- and a gift to myself.
So I went running this morning after the kids left for school. Quincy started all-day-k today! She is so excited! (I am so excited). I am not really fitting into my running clothes which is- I guess just more motivation. The temp was perfect…it’s cooling off. It was probably mid-80’s. I ran my “old” short day. (seemed really far this morning!). I decided that I could walk the uphill and run the down, since really I need to re-condition my joints, and my lungs. Despite the fact I was totally ‘draggin’cheek’ this morning…I couldn’t believe how great it felt. How it allows my mind to jump around and think, and conjure. I have missed that so much. when I run I can totally check out of my body and just think.
I have a goal. I am totally a goal kind of girl. I like to visualize myself doing what it is I want to do. that helps me accomplish stuff. So, since about JUNE, when eric completed his first marathon…I decided that next year, I want to be doing that. Today was my first training day. and I am officially training for the SLC marathon June 2nd. I am from SLC, and the marathon is a Saturday. Katie, Heather… you guys still in? STACY?? How about you!? wink wink… maybe this will help me with that choc. Chip cookie problem! You will be proud of me, I really wanted cookies yesterday, and I took a nap instead of making them! I figure if I do good this week, I can make cookies next Sunday. I am going to search for a good online training program this week…
This is why I love Mondays… love a new start. (And loving getting my house cleaned!)
