DAY {2/30}

    Oftentimes while going through my days, they feel long.  I feel like 30 days to do anything is SUCH.A.LONG.TIME.  I feel like any good choices {even over a term of 30 days} can’t possibly affect me visually or physically, and that there is no way I can get the goals I’ve set in a 30 day period.  But, I make the good choices and plow through those feelings.  Then I get ready for bed at the end of the day and I think, “Dang!  2 of my 30 days are gone!  I only have 28 days left!  Did I make the most of today??”  While in it-much like the daily life with raising children-the days seem so long, and the months & years seem to fly by.

     

    Today was a great one.  I was up a few times in the night with kiddos, so I didn’t jump out of bed to get my workout done first thing, which is definitely my preference.  Instead, I did the morning routine, breakfast, work, etc., and then did my workout this afternoon.  Eating was great {a good friend brought me a 1/2 flat of raspberries from Costco-delish postworkout snack combined with 1/2 c. cottage cheese}.  I felt good & know that even though I’m not seeing any changes in the mirror yet, they are there.  They are coming.  And I’m planning on them being awesome!

     

    I did not want to workout this afternoon in the heat…rather, I wanted to take a nap.  But I got my butt out in our {super hot} garage, turned on my Katy Perry Pandora station, and hit it.  Here’s what I did:

    Eating: Good.  I felt like I wanted to snack this afternoon, but tried just downing lots of water.  Throughout the afternoon/evening I had 4 sugar free mints.  Not necessary, but helpful.  Here’s to getting more sleep tonight…please!  And another exciting Feature Friday coming tomorrow!
