Today I was woke up by Spanky, as he heard my phone buzzing at 3am. He was raring to go outside and I was raring to go back to bed. This is what I felt like...but I was polite and we went outside.
I arrived at the gym at 5:15 and ran on the ARC machine for 30 minutes, went three miles and burned 484 calories.. I spent the rest of my time working on lower body...leg lifts, band exercises, curls, etc.
Yup, I was feeling pretty buff when I left the gym! My main concern was breakfast...and quick! Sometimes I crave weird stuff for breakfast...I decided on a bran muffin (2 actually) and chocolate milk (you know, recovery is important)!
So I am driving across town to the college for swimming class, and I am just not feeling it this morning. I felt slightly under the weather, but nothing I could put my finger on. so I drank a bottle of water and headed to the pool. I swam for about 45 minutes and then just played...gliding, swimming on my side, rolling over, etc.
Next, shower and to the Hurley pool to go to work. OMG, the place was a zoo! My private lesson was incapable of functioning this morning and seemed to forget everything she had been doing well with.
I snapped at two kids rough-housing and then everyone thought I was cranky. Can you imagine?
I guess I had better go. Gotta order a wetsuit tonight and it seems I am between sizes (naturally). If I get it too small..wasted money, too big and it won't fit too long.... do without and Suffer sinking in open water. Tomorrow is another day. I'm gonna go and take a little nap. Talk at you tomorrow Sparked Friends!

These three words can happen in any order, but should be specifically practiced everyday of one's life. We should live like there is no tomorrow, live the way we want to be remembered, live life to its fullest, live what we like to do.
We never know when the last dance will occur.
Love is a complicated word. It leads to great happiness, despair, want, need and more than one broken heart. It is practiced by many, studied and deeply followed by few. Love is often ignored when it is of ourself. Few truly love themselves and this is a shame. You only have one you and you can't really, truly, madly, deeply love another until you love yourself!
Laugh because it makes you feel good, because it releases tension, because it shows you are less than perfect. Laughing is great medicine. There are times to be serious and times for every emotion. Life needs many times to laugh and we are all so busy, I don't think we take enough time to laugh.
Stop and think---Live, Love and Laugh today. You never know what tomorrow will bring.
Have a great Sunday Spark People!
