When my alarm went off at 6 this morning, I hit snooze. I wanted to get up but I also didn’t want to get up. It was one of those moments when I was having a good dream and just wanted to dwell in that peaceful place for a while. There was also part of me that didn’t want to get up and work out.
And then I remembered the four words that I currently have on my letterboard that I look at several times a day:
I got out of bed, took Persephone out in the few inches of snow and then I got ready. I turned on my workout and I started. Today’s workout wasn’t super hard, but it felt so good to be getting up and moving my body.
Yesterday was the first time in months (maybe years) that I really made an effort to get up and work out. I want to be healthy and active. I’ve been thinking about this for several months now, and you know that saying about how when the student is ready, the teacher appears? Well, that’s totally what happened with me. I was ready and a friend from the next ward over helps women get healthy and form healthy habits and now here I am.
Working out two days in a row and excited to work out again tomorrow. I’ve also felt more of a drive to work on my book and change some other small habits that I’ve been thinking about.
Every morning we have a choice. I wrote last week about how I got up because of a quote from one of my favorite authors and today it was the words on my letterboard. Find the things that motivate you. Get up, move your body, chase your dreams. I can’t wait to hear about them and share mine with you.
