Gvie the girl a gold star!!

Just before the alarm went off this morning it started raining. Raining super hard and the noise was incredible!!! Well, 15 minutes later when the alarm went off I said, I'm not getting up- it's raining. Also, my husband decided to take the day off - that makes it twice as hard to get up. So I hit the snooze like3 times firmly convinced I was going to stay in bed. Then, I don't know what happened, but I literally jumped out of bed and started getting ready to go to the Y. I ended up leaving the house 20 minutes late and due to traffic, arriving at the gym 30 minutes later than I wanted to, but I got there and I worked out!! Yeah!!! I did full body weight workout and 15 minutes cardio. I feel really good and I'm glad I got up.

Working my way out of a dark tunnel is not easy or fast. I have set backs (like Sunday) and there are days when it just seems too hard. But every workout I get in makes it that much easier. Being able to force myself out of bed this morning is a huge step in the right direction. I'm feeling great and I must now do some work :(

Change my thinking

 I have always said that I'm someone who likes routine. I like knowing what I'm doing when. I like knowing that things will get done...
