What's with me today?!
Thursday, October 09, 2014
I slept on the couch last night. Before anyone thinks I had a fight with the ol man, I did NOT. My husband is an engineer and is required to work 3rd shift sometimes to make sure what he builds is up and running and the only time he can do that without disturbing the public is in the middle of the night. He works for a communication company. Well he worked last night (still isn't home yet) and the house feels empty with just me and my son in it so I slept down in the living room on the couch with the tv on and my son down the hall in his room. Our room is upstairs. I slept but tossed and turned.
My son didn't want to get up this morning but I bounced out of "bed" and got the routine going! I rode before taking him to school and after I got back from taking him to school. Did my ride a total of an hour and the only thing I could keep thinking about was....I think I will try to do another hour today! What has gotten into me!? I feel good! The sweat drowns me and my clothes and I used to hate that. NOW I LOVE IT! I feel like the more I sweat the harder I work and the better I am. I know my limits but I am enjoying feeling what my body can do! There were so many years where I was way too sick to even wake up for days at a time. I couldn't walk a block without passing out. So to be able to ride at a vigorous rate for an hour or longer feels so great! I am alive. I am getting healthier. I am getting happier.
I chose to be healthier, happier, have fun and live life!
