Lifetime Momentum #19

Monday, November 22, 2010

It's Monday! Usually that carries a negative connotation in our culture and certainly has for me. But I found something curious this morning. I woke up at 4:55 am, a full 5 minutes before the alarm was set to go off, and hopped out of bed excited to get to the pool to swim. I remember what this feeling was like last time I attempted this, but it still manages to amaze me. It amazes me how quickly I start feeling better and feeling better about myself. I know that part of it is due to the surge of endorphins from all the activity and not necessarily having achieved gains in health yet. Regardless, it is enough for me to keep pressing forward and looking forward to my next burst of activity. I already find myself disappointed when I have to stop swimming and continually anticipate my next trip to the pool. Yesterday was my recovery day and I didn't go all day. That's why this week I couldn't wait till Monday! It was my chance to get back in the water. I love this feeling!

Nutrition over the weekend wasn't the best. Had a Thanksgiving dinner with some of our family yesterday. Regardless, it hasn't set me back thanks to the vigorous exercise routine I've started.

Enough rambling for one day!

Never Stop Moving!
