I was sitting here this morning deciding what exercise regimen I should prepare myself for and really, dreading the whole experience. Yesterday I dragged a rainbow vacuum cleaner around my house and did some super in-depth cleaning including the carpeted stairs (ugh) and other than the lovely blush and sheen of sweat during this modified exercise session, I am also experiencing lightly sore muscles today. Which in most cases wouldn't even bother me...except for I still have to do my workout for today! Curse you Lactic Acid! My co-workers assure me that a workout is just what I need to feel better. Yeah, okay.
Oddly, I'm feeling quite well. Even after getting only 4 hours of sleep last night, I'm feeling more energized than I have in quite some time. The 4 hours of sleep was due to the fact that I had to be into work 2 hours early today, which meant getting up at 3:30 this morning. I tried to go to bed at 8:30, but my youngest was having a hard time sleeping so I got her settled at about 9:30. Then I laid there and watched the clock until about 11:30 reminding myself mentally "you need to go to sleep" "I CAN"T SLEEP!" I nodded off soon after, only to be woken by a groggy 7 year old at 2am who had had a bad dream. Put her back to bed, settled myself back in and that darn alarm clock went off! But the point here is...I feel good! I feel strong. I feel...optimistic? Yeah, that's it....optimistic!
