Monday; Starting the day off right
I usually judge my week by how my Monday goes. I think it’s important to start on the right foot. In doing so I try to plan everything out like just like the control freak I am. That means it usually never goes to plan. Go figure! But I still try to plan it out anyways.
My goal this morning was to wake up at 5:00am to workout my legs. Just squats and trying to do body weight workouts I found on Pinterest. My son, who is 8 months now, woke me up at 3:00 and 4:00am. I was more motivated and awake at that time and I should have done it then because 5:00am rolled around and mentally I couldn’t get myself out of bed to do it. It was some miracle that I got myself, my son, and daughter ready and out the door in 20 minutes. I am lucky enough to have the daycare less than 1 mile away from the house. Good thing to because I left without my work briefcase and my gym bag and that added no time to go back and grab it.
I am not sure if today I am in the mood of just screw it or trying to mentally prepare myself to do better. Now this is all due to the fact I ate a Cuban egg, ham, and bacon sandwich for breakfast. Not part of my lifestyle plan. I know, you must be thinking this woman is nuts! All this over a breakfast sandwich. But that’s the thing. Don’t we all judge how are day will be based on how some things go? When do we start classifying a bad day? When two or three things go wrong? But surprisingly things just went right today.
I made myself go to the gym during lunch, even if it was just for 20 minutes. I felt like I got a forward moving process going at work. I was able to give my daughter swim lessons after school as well as walk the dog. And I can’t forget the FaceTime with the in-laws and the kids. Some days I reflect back and can’t believe what I was able to accomplish in so little time. I also had dinner ready for my husband as well as myself (two separate meals because my husband did not join me on my lifestyle change). I also took out the trash, emptied the dishwasher, and filled it up again.
Days like today makes me realize how I came up with DIAMoms. There are moms out there that really do it all and it amazes me, I mean truly amazes me, on how much we accomplish and do on a daily basis. Kudos for all you moms that keep going. Once you write it out it really is a lot and most people do realize it. I hate to say it but I know my husband has no clue but that might be a guy thing.
