The way I live my life is changing. Yep, I said it. The last couple of days have felt pretty good. Now, I just need to stick with the momentum and let the ACTIONS keep me moving forward. The problem I have run into in the past is that I go and go and then peter out.
Today is likely going to be a double blog post day. We shall see. I am going to quickly tell about my morning and then going to go back to bed for a bit. I should just shower, but really I want to rest a few minutes more.
Anyway, today marked the middle of my journey to a 5K run. I started working through a program called Couch to 5K and downloaded the app on my phone. The workout for today was 8 minutes jog, 5 minutes walk, and finally 8 minutes jog. When I saw this would be my workout for today I was a bit nervous about it. So far, 5 minutes was my max ‘run’ interval. So… I got up at 4:45 – got dressed and off I went. And… here I am DONE!
Took my vitamins and meds, worked out, and now it is time for a sliver of a rest. Off to “work” today. I love my job so much that when I am there I don’t know that it should be called work. Thanks Tivey Family for letting me be a part of your incredible journey at Bowman Glass.
Off to rest for now…
And I did rest for a bit this morning and finally pulled myself out of bed and went to work. I will tell you, I really enjoy my new job. More than I can really put into words. I have done very rewarding work for many years as a speech-language pathologist but doing what I am doing to help out at Bowman Glass is really quite fun. Do I miss the kids at school, yes. Do I miss my friends I worked with, yes. But I didn’t miss my baby Sophia’s first year. And, I have had a chance to spend extra time with Olivia that I needed as well. Did I fall into my depression deeper because of the events of this last year… I think so. That is a story for another day.

I am quite tired and will be happy to get up and do the crazy again tomorrow.
Just for Today…
1. I am grateful for great childcare.
2. I enjoy crossing things off lists and throwing away the paper that had the list on it.
3. Water was a bit of a struggle but enjoying some protein smoothies as a snack/breakfast
4. Took my meds, added vitamin B (yuk)
5. Going to bed before midnight…. Ahhh…
