How’s has this Monday been treating you? So far-so good on my end. After last Monday’s catastrophe, I wanted this week to start with a complete makeover. If you remember, last Monday was just “one of THOSE days”.
My alarm went off at 4:45 AM. I set it early so I would be able to hit snooze a few times (I’m sure Rob loved that). 😉 I was out of bed by 5:15 AM and out the door before 5:30 AM. I had a workout I wanted to rock before the work day started and rock it I did!
I think I mentioned last week that I started a new routine. I was bummed that I couldn’t put my all into it last week, the way I would have liked. Today I was able to hit it full force. I knocked out 30 minutes on the elliptical and then hit shoulders and abs. I know they say to lift first and then do cardio, but I get my cardio out of the way first so there are no excuses for not doing cardio later on. I LOVE to lift so that is never a problem for me. It took me a little over an hour to finish everything. Not bad!
Once done, I bounded out to my car, full of energy. Unlike last Monday, the remote started first try. Success #1! I made it home about 5 minutes later and got ready for work.
When it was time to make lunch, I was careful not to cut my hand on the can of beans, the way I did last week. Success #2!
After my goodbyes to Rob, I was out of the house right on time and happily started the car with no struggles, unlike last Monday. Success #3! My usual morning ride ensued, listening to Z100 for half the ride and then speaking to my mom for the second half. I made it to work 10 minutes early and have been playing catch up ever since.
I’m not 100% over my bug, but I’m much, much, MUCH better than last week. I had just started coming down with the bug last Monday morning and by afternoon it was hard to swallow and my voice became raspy. Now, I sound a little congested, but I’ll take that over what I was going through at this point last Monday. Success #4!
Now, I’m hoping the remainder of the afternoon will move along smoothly. I have a few projects to work on to keep me busy and then I’ll be on my way home to have dinner with my man. 🙂
I hope the beginning of this work week is treating you well so far. My Monday has had a complete Makeover, which I’m VERY thankful for!
