Good morning – rise and shine – happy Sunday to you!
I woke up early this morning and knew exactly what I had to do. After a week of baking and eating cookies, not exercising as much as I would have liked to, indulging in fair food and devouring a delicious, juicy New York strip steak the size of my head at a friend’s house last night – I woke up feeling…gross.
At that point, it was the easiest decision in the world to get up, throw on my workout clothes and exercise. It must have rained last night, because as soon as I opened the front door, the cool breeze washed over me and water droplets from the trees sprinkled down. Conditions were perfect. I set out on a two mile walk and ran the two miles back. It was the best sweat sesh I have had in I don’t even know how long. It was so quiet out, the temperatures were so fair and the run back seemed almost effortless. Amazing 🙂
After a long, cold shower I had a lovely breakfast of a CranberryOrange PURE Bar and Watermelon.
I love how exercising is the perfect junk food craving crusher. Whenever I return from a good session, the thought of anything heavy or greasy just completely nauseates me. Instead, I naturally crave fresh, whole, healthy foods. Another benefit of getting your sweat on, I guess!
I have a busy day ahead of me which includes:
- Grocery shopping
- Folding laundry
- A trip to the crafts store
- Working on blog stuff
- Dinner with my parents
I’m so glad I got some exercise in this morning as it really helps jumpstart and set the tone for the upcoming week. Here’s to the start of a good one!
Do you “kick off” your week on Sundays or Mondays?
I’m generally a Monday kick off kind of gal, but today was exactly what I needed to get the week started on the right foot!
