what a difference a week makes

I'm feeling about a bazillion times better than I was at this time last week. I made it 5 days to the gym at 6am and am shooting for 6 days this week. It's amazing how fast clean(er) eating and exercise can turn my whole attitude around.

I've been struggling with my left hip since I tripped over a stick in the park and caught myself from falling and I couldn't get through the run on Friday so I finished it walking and took Saturday and Sunday off. When I started this morning I still didn't feel I could run so I walked really fast for 50 minutes hoping that going a bit longer would help burn as many calories as running does.

I feel like getting up is already easier. It feels amazing to be on my way to my part time job knowing it's done and my muscles still zinging. I just wish I could bottle it up and save it for when the times when it seems totally pointless. Jack said wrote something about that last week and it's really stuck with me so I've been focusing on keeping that feeling fresh in my memory every day. It's as close as we can get to bottling it for the foreseeable future.

Hope the week ahead is a great one for all!

  2. That's great! 6 days a week is awesome!

    I have to start getting up early too, otherwise I don't have time to workout. I'm glad you said that you're getting used to getting up early. I'm hoping that happens to me too!

  3. Awesome!!! I wish that I had that get up and go in the a.m. I milk those extra snooze minutes for every second that they offer! I agree that if I could...it would be awesome...I could get to work that zing still in my legs, too. Maybe I will try it this week...will shoot for one day...and build on that! Thanks again for the motivation!!!
