The Way I Live… [6-18-12]

The way I live my life continues to move forward.  I have visions of the changes I want to make in my life.  I am taking my medicine.  I am working out and doing it as a morning person.  That right there… BIG CHANGE.  I will not drink coffee though.  Just not going to be a coffee drinker – ever.

Did a 5am run today.  Didn’t feel great.  That I can tell you.  But, I am pleased to report I made it through and my next run is a milestone, but you will have to wait until Wednesday for that.  Today during the run, I had a million thoughts going through my head and no place to write them down so I pulled out my phone and decided to do a video memo to myself.  While I was doing it, too ladies went RUNNING by.  Wanna see?  Maybe someday I will show you when I figure out how to make the video not include the part of me having a video chat with myself and it is turned to the side 90 degrees so that is distracting from the footage as well. 

Made a goal or two the other day during a conference call with one of my fitness groups.  My cousin, Toni, has started a small group and we are on a 12 week Journey to Fit together.  Jodi has talked about it over at www.touchingyourheart.net as well.  I am too tired to link and figure out all that stuff right now so just making mention.  Anyway, after the call, Amanda decided we should make some goals for us to reach or work on prior to our next phone call.  It must be the Pink Papaya leadership training she is doing that brought her to this idea.  If you have not “Liked” her Pink Papaya Facebook page… then you should.  I want everyone to just go there and push like.  I totally don’t care if you ever in a million years intend to see what Pink Papaya is, just “Like” the page.  If you end up liking the products by accident someday, great.

Anyway… my disjointed writing strikes again!  The goals we looked at for ourselves included a) getting enough sleep, b) taking our vitamins/meds regularly and c) eat 2 nutritious snacks each day.  Well, I have been taking my meds and am adding in vitamin B in tomorrow. 

Problem… my sleep has been HORRIBLE.  For the last two nights, up until 3:00.  A complete struggle.  So, tonight I hope that changes.  Also, forgot to snack at all this afternoon so, there went that.

I started the post talking about the changes and visions I have and haven’t come completely clean with everyone yet.  This is the part where I can’t decide how honest and open and raw I am willing to go in this section of my blog.  I know people still want to see and enjoy pictures which I will be sure to get back to posting now that I have an easy way to post… but this journey and The Way I Live is important to me.  And I want to be accountable and make the changes that I need to make.  I just need to decide I am willing to share it all and put it all on the line. 

For now, I am ooober tired.  I have to get up at 4:40 so I can go take care of me for a bit.  Looking forward to Wednesday’s run and scared of it all at the same time.  For now, just going to try and take care of my sleep.

Onward!
