I am very proud to say, I did go to Spin Class this morning:
As I made my way through the chilly early morning, and across the darkened parking lot I reminded myself that I was taking back part of my day. There is something liberating that going to the gym before work does to my frame of mind. I feel very strong and full of energy. Walking down the long corridor is like a victory walk – I did it!
My presentation was a success. We had a rich dialogue and I am grateful to have such dedicated thoughtful colleagues to work alongside. By 2:30 PM I was feeling depleted and all of that positive energy and momentum I felt earlier had vanished. I was longing for a strong cup of coffee but there was none. So, I sipped on my water and tried not to yawn too much… It was already getting dark when I left school for home:
I did everything I needed to – I prepped and tracked my breakfast/lunch (with an extra snack because I’m working late tomorrow). I went out and did my civic duty and voted! I hope you did as well. I cooked dinner and now I am looking forward to a serving of Slow Churn Rocky Road ice cream (5sp) for dessert.
I am feeling tired and a little achy. But I know those feelings will pass. I am getting stronger, working harder, and focused on taking care of myself. I found this quote and it really spoke to me:
We are all worth it. More tomorrow…
