It has been so encouraging, but the last couple of days I have been in a rut. Probable causes of the rut:
1. It has been raining sooooo much here in Atlanta and when it rains I feel like I HAVE to be lazy!!!
2. FB and Blogs... enough said!!
3. I haven't been able to fall asleep and I stay up till 2 AM. I just wasn't able to shut my mind off! I think about this new fabulous blog (LOL!) and my new FB page and all the LIKES I so desperately want! I am also a teacher and this is the time of the summer when I start thinking about my classroom and everything I need to do to at school! **side note- I am changing classrooms this year and I am super stressed! I walked into my new classroom and saw all the stuff piled up and I still have stuff piled up in my old room. I almost cried, but I did get a lot of my furniture moved into place, but I still have SO MUCH TO DO!! So do you understand why I haven't been able to sleep???
Well, last night I went to bed at a more reasonable hour. It was more like 11:00, which is better than 2 AM! I told myself that the blogging world and the FB world would still be there when I woke up! ARE YOU STILL HERE? ANYONE??? FEEL FREE TO COMMENT AND LET ME KNOW YOU ARE HERE!!! I set my alarm for 6:30 and after a couple of times of hitting snooze (and not turning the damn thing off!) I was up and dressed by 7AM. I kept thinking of all of my 'new best friends!' in this blogging world and you encouraged me to get my butt out of bed! I have read all about the awesome things y'all have been doing and eating, and I said if my BFFs can do it so can I! So I walked out of the door and turned on my Ease Into 5k program on my iPhone. (This program is pretty much a Couch to 5K training program. I did pay for the app, but I love it.) Here are my stats from today:
|I have actually noticed my run pace get better!|
|This angle makes me look like|
I am as tall as my ceilings!
I can at least say that I am proud of myself for getting out of bed this morning! Now if I can continue to do that every morning. (I will have to come up with a strong plan once school starts back though.)
So enjoy your hug and keep up the good work while encouraging me at the same time!
