Monday Motivation and updates

So after finishing my temper tantrum from the weekend, I decided this morning to pick myself up and start over today.  Despite struggles, single parenting, and normal teenage drama I needed a clean slate. So here….we….go….


This morning I woke up on time, and allowed myself an extra snooze. I smiled as I cuddled my dog, and I took my time getting ready since I only had ONE child to tend to this morning.  And it felt great.  This is a new day.

Work was great, and I had time to organize and file a lot of paperwork that had been collecting dust on my desk. YAY to organizing, right?!

My hubby offered to take our youngest to ballet even though it’s something I normally do, stating, “You need a break.”  He’s right… I do.

So I cooked the family dinner after work, and jumped at the chance to run.  My legs are still very tight from Saturday, so it felt GREAT to stretch ’em out on the ‘mill.  WAIT…did I say that out loud?  A dready run that wasn’t so dreadful.  Winning.

After my run, I ate dinner, showered, and have been sitting quietly at my computer working on the recipe section of my blog for about an hour and a half.  Have you checked it out yet?  It’s just a start, but I’d love for you to try some of my favorite recipes!  You can check it out here! Feedback, comments, and ideas are always welcomed!

It felt great despite laundry duty to give myself a couple hours to do something JUST for me.  Running. Writing. And cataloging recipes.  Does it get better than that?

How do you spend your down time?  Do you allow yourself time to just do YOUR thing at least once a week?  If not, I highly recommend it. I tell ya what…my uninterrupted shower tonight was off. the. chain.  LOL

Thanks, y’all! I look forward to hearing from you!
