It seems like Monday is the most dreaded day of the week.I wonder why that is. Just because for most people, it means going back to work after a couple days off? I definitely see that point of view, but I also think Monday's are a great time to start anew, set new goals and plan something new. If last week wasn't so great, or even if it was good, this one can be even better. Who knows who you may meet, what outstanding news you might get, or how great a particular run or workout might be. Maybe the sun and cool weather has something to do with my good mood and bright outlook this morning! I'm not sure!
I got home last night around 10 from my very quick (less than 48hrs) trip to Michigan. I had a great time and am so glad that I went. It was wonderful to see family Saturday night and celebrate my Great Aunt & Uncle's 50th Wedding Anniversary. They're such amazing people who have done so many great things for others and the 97 people who were there represent just a small number of people who have been touched by them over the years. I wonder if Woody and I will have so many people celebrating with us when we reach 50 years!?
So, today's two Monday Miracles:
1. I woke up at 5am to go to the gym, even though I only had about 11 hours of sleep the two nights before - combined. AND, I had a strong, productive workout! I needed two days off from the gym. My legs were fresh and ready to work!
2. My foot continues to feel better and I am very optimistic that I'll be running by the end of the week (maybe before!). I'm not going to push it too fast, but it's feeling pretty good! I was starting to wonder if that would ever happen.
2.5 I just finished eating a delicious bowl of peanut butter & jelly w/banana oatmeal! PB&Co Dark Chocolate Dreams and Cherry Republic Cherry Jam! Yum!!
Do you have a Monday Miracle?
