Taking Care of Myself - Takes Care of A Lot More Than Just Me.

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

As my feet hit the pavement yesterday, I realized that I was hitting mile #3 - on 4 hours of sleep. My daughter has been up at night a lot lately - and I have been sleeping on her floor or up trying to console her.

If I hadn't been taking care of myself - there is NO WAY I would have been able to run yesterday on such little sleep. If I hadn't been taking care of myself - my attitude would have absolutely sucked and I would have been miserable to be around.

But, because I am taking care of myself, minor set-backs are just that - Minor. And I can fight through them without even realizing it.

Taking care of myself also helps me take care of my kiddies and everything else that needs to get done every day.

Taking care of myself might take a couple more minutes out of my day - but it gives a whole lot more back.

    I applaud your attitude, and also your running!! I am not a runner, I wish that I enjoyed it but it makes me hate exercising haha. Eventually I hope to enjoy it at some point, possibly when I am smaller, we shall see. Keep up the great work, you are right taking care of ourselves takes care of a lot more than just us! GREAT JOB!! emoticon
