70 Days of ME day 57

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Well today was a much welcomed change of pace from what has been the norm lately. I woke up this morning before my 5am alarm even went off which is odd because I am the type of person that has a million alarms set just in case I decide to getup and workout, shower or just want to hit e snooze a few times, which is usually the choice that wins So this morning I woke up early and I took it as God's way of saying "Get your butt out of bed and go work out! You spent enough time complaining yesterday, so disk ethnic about it today!" So, by 5am, I was out of bed and by 5:15, I was downstairs and on the stationary bike...only about 7hrs after I had gotten off of it last night. I was glad I was doing it though because I was supposed to go to my cousin Gracie's 1st grade musical tonight, which would mean missing Zumba for the second week in a row. :( So, I did my 10 miles on the bike, took a shower and even had time to eat a bowl of cereal and drink my chai BEFORE leaving for work. Normally it goes with me and ends up slightly cold. Work was crazy, I think the twins are coming down wi something cause Malia was getting warmer and warmer throughout the day and they were both quite whiny and clingy, that meant I got to hold two babies quite a bit today. Carrying them both up and down stairs multiple times, walking circles throughout the house while holding one and the other walking along with me by holding my finger or my pant leg. Basically, it was a LONG day and I felt really bad for my poor babies during the day though, I got a text from my aunt saying that she made a mistake and that Gracie's concert wasn't tonight, but it is tomorrow. Yay because I could go to Zumba, but boo because I can't go tomorrow since I have church. But, I was definitely excited I could go to Zumba and get in another workout today. Zumba tonight was fun because the girls who are normally there with me said they missed me last week (baby shower,waste of calories on a not-so-great cupcake night). That mad me feel really good that they said they actually missed me. Such a different feeling than when I went to Zumba at the $8 drop-in place...and my Zumba is free! It was also fun because we had a room full of new people tonight too! I'm really thankful I was able to go tonight, I miss it when u can't go. On top of my workouts being good today, I also ate pretty well too! I did share 2 packs of smarties with the twins and ate 1 small mini cupcake when I got home, but other than that, I did great. I definitely came close to, if not actually succeeding in burning more calories than I consumed today! :) Oh yeah, I was right the other day when I guessed the reasoning for why I just wanted to eat! Here is a motivational photo I found today that has really been my mantra lately...even if I have failed at it a few times...

    Great job on working out so early! I am definitely NOT a morning person so my workouts are usually at night.
