Let's be honest, work has been crazy, tons of transitions happening, more work for me, slump in the workout area, Body Revolution on a halt, a few runs under my belt, no motivation, rekindled an old friendship, helping plan a baby shower, spending time with family & friends, haven't read any blogs, haven't blogged myself, literally been so busy I can't breath.
This has been my life the past week.
There have been ups and downs, I have felt like I have been all over the place! I tell my friends it's Adult ADD lol No focus and my mind is everywhere!
I haven't been super focused on my runs or workouts, I stopped Jillian's Body Revolution a few weeks ago, I am sad to say that I don't think I will be jumping back into it any time soon.
My life has been really chaotic right now and running is the only thing that will balance it.
I recently read a testimonial on She Reads Truth and it was all about making time for God in your life. Every day you should spend some time with God, I firmly believe this. I am currently doing a one year bible plan so every day I read my bible, I also do the devotional plans on She Reads Truth, they are amazing! I love them!
The girl in the testimonial stated that she decided to get up one hour early every day and go to the coffee shop to get her time with God in and it worked for her!
I use my lunch hour or dinner time to read my bible and have time with God.
I always make sure to get my bible study in. It really makes a difference in my life.
Recently I realized that I was becoming the biggest procrastinator when it came to working out. I was either too tired in the morning to get up or too tired after work to workout. Work has been super crazy and I have just been plain exhausted after work. The crazy thing is that I really want to get up and run before work, I love having my workout done before or as the sun is coming up. This is the best way to start my day. But of course I am not a morning person and I don't like getting up...but since putting my alarm clock across the room, it has forced me to get up and turn it off...but sadly what has actually been happening is that I get up and hit snooze then crawl back in bed for another 10 minutes.
I don't know about you but that actually makes me feel worse lol But I continue to do it.
Why do I torture myself?!!!
This morning I started to do that, when I realized that I might have to work late so I wouldn't be able to run after work and this morning was my only option for running. Which surprisingly forced me out of the bed and onto the road for my morning run.
I was so happy that I decided to get up when I did.
So I have decided to make a severe conscious effort to get up every morning and run. Maybe not every day, because I have never run 5 or more days a week but I know that if I get up and run, my day will start off with a smile and a more positive attitude which will allow me to have a better day at work and a longer evening seeing as my workout is already done.
I am slowly working myself out of a slump and it feels great.
I also mentioned rekindling a friendship. I got a message from my first roommate and old best friend, Brandy about a week ago, she wanted to sign up her daughter for dance at my sister's studio, well after several chatting messages, we decided to get up for dinner and catch up.
Did I mention that it's been at least 8-9 years since we have really talked or hung out.
We would stay in touch off and on but not really constant.
We had dinner last Thursday night, I got to meet her daughter and you would have never known that we haven't talked in forever. We picked up exactly where we left off. We were best friends in our early twenties and I believe we are only our way to being best friends again in our early thirties. We have talked almost every day since then and have already made plans to hang out again this week! It's been refreshing to have her back in my life and I am so glad we were able to rekindle our friendship.
Lately at times I have felt like something was missing in my life, and while I have been hoping to meet a man, I never thought that God would bring back a friend into my life in the meantime.
God brought Brandy back into my life at precisely the exact time that I needed a best friend.
Busy week ahead!
Lots to watch and do!
And I have a wedding this weekend! Can't wait for Memorial Day Weekend when things will finally settle down...I hope! lol
How have all of you been?
Tell me what I have been missing!
