Such a rough night of sleep last night. Our daughter wakes up 1-3 times a night and while she may be able to fall back to sleep rather quickly, I do not. Well, sometimes I do, but not always. And on those mornings where I’ve lacked the proper hours for my personal sleep time, I am not so full of spunk. To top it off, today was a cardio day. Ugh.
I walked our cute little talker to school in the rain and on the way back was dreading my workout. I knew I had to push through the tired and mopey me to get to the better me. I knew my day would be brighter, despite the rain, if I could just get it done.
After an hour of procrastinating and doing things that didn’t need doing, I put on my trainers, grabbed my jump rope, put on the tunes, set my timer, and had at it. And then? I was done! My body felt better. My mind felt clearer. The leftovers from the night were gone. I bounced and planked my way to a better day. In less than 30 minutes.
When you find yourself struggling to get your workout in, wanting to order take away rather than use your fresh veggies, or put your child in front of the tube so you don’t have to listen to her talk, remember this: you will feel a whole ton better if you just “get it done”. The 30 minutes you invest in a healthier lifestyle are totally worth it my friend.
