So…I’m back! And I’m getting things done! Going back to my list, let’s see how I’ve done so far (I’m not a list person at all, so this is kinda fun for me to make a list and see how I do since I obviously need the accountability today):
- Go for a run (right after my Chickpea Blondies are done for tonight!),
- Sweep the floors/clean up the kitchen,
- Double-check my clients’ workout plans for the rest of the week,
- Help my man with some prep for a BBQ we’re hosting this weekend with our Cancer Club,
- Read my Bible and take advantage of the quiet day I have at home with some time spent w/God.
- Take out the garbage (just added this one!)
A bit more to do, but it’s the enjoyable stuff…that along with shower! After a half-way effort in my workout this morning, I felt like I couldn’t really get going until I had worked hard. It was a good workout in and of itself that consisted of:
…for a total of 6 rounds. Fun, solid workout! But I wandered around the house too much and took too many breaks to make it as worth my while as it could have been (focus, Bon!) and hence felt the need to run. As soon as I took my first few steps, I knew it was a good decision! That run hit the spot, and 56 minutes later I was a happy, motivated woman again! It was beautiful outside – no chilly and unforgiving wind that I thought was present but instead a great breeze to move through. Some highlights of the run included: seeing a little river otter (SO fun to see!), seeing the transformed, green, vibrant Fish Creek Park in all it’s beauty, and just being grateful to move. Now I’m ready to take on the rest of the day and make the most of it; no need to mourn what was lost in those morning hours, right? Instead, it’s time to move on and take advantage of the rest of the day.
What do you do to “snap yourself out” of an unproductive day? I’d like to hear your coping strategies to get yourself back in gear on those days when you’re just not clicking into place. Here’s to a great rest of the day to everyone!
Live well & be well, friends,
