I never sleep well on Sunday nights…I have no clue why…I suppose I just can’t turn my mind off and get rest.
So last night was a sleepless night, but I tried to catch a few ZZZ’s in each hour between waking up with stomach issues. I could’ve let this ruin my day…COULD HAVE. But I was pleasantly surprised to get not only morning cuddles from my husband (normally tough with a 60 lb. dog in the bed), but to also have my youngest crawl in bed for 5 minutes of snuggles before we had to get up. I knew it would be a great day.
And then I stepped on the scale for my Monday morning weigh in, and heard a terrible crack. DID I BREAK THE SCALE??? I registered at 100 lbs. which is ridiculous, but I figured I broke the scale. (Come to find out it was one of my daughter’s beads that broke underneath the scale, LOL).
I have struggled with negativity ruining my mood lately, so I went into work with a new found positive attitude. And guess what, it worked! Will it work every day, maybe not. But Monday is complete and I am happy.
I was SOOOO tired today after a terrible night’s sleep. But I made myself drive straight home from work and change into my workout gear for the gym. I was pleasantly surprised to get a good workout in.
I ran 2.12 miles in 20 minutes and added in some weights to help strengthen my legs.
3 sets/15-30 lbs abdominals
3 sets/15-55 lbs leg extensions
3 sets/10-45 lbs leg curls
Not a huge workout, but a great start.
I also (drum roll please) signed up for my first ½ marathon this spring.
A lot of my running friends are signing up, so it should be a blast.
Lastly, I am happy to report I’ve lost nearly all the weight I gained during marathon training! Thank goodness, my knees were very unhappy with me. Hard work truly pays off! ❤
