Dragged my lazy butt out of bed this morning...

Monday, January 07, 2013

Before - since I woke up in the middle of the night for about an hour, this would have been one of those mornings when I would have rolled over, re-set the clock to a more "suitable" time and gone back to sleep. Then I would have hit snooze twice and ran late. Since I was running late, I would have not had breakfast and thrown together a completely inadequate lunch that would have led to serious after work snacking that would have completely derailed dinner. I know this scenario well - I did it for years. Like dominoes, right. One misstep leads to the next and to the next and so on........

Now - I grumbled but got out of that bed at 5:12 and changed and did a 30 min interval workout on my treadmill. Then I had a yogurt with some Cheerios mixed in. I whipped up an awesome lunch (tuna, avocado, Wasa crisp breads, sliced peppers), grabbed a grapefruit half for my midmorning snack and a small bag of pretzels for those 3pm munchies and headed out the door. I came home - made a healthy dinner, had 1 glass of red wine with dinner and played with my kids.

So glad I dragged my lazy butt out of bed.
