Yesterday was my last day of work for 6 days. I had a butt load of things to do after work and while I was trying to figure out in my head how I was going to get everything to mesh up and still get to spinning, I realized that I had it all wrong. I shouldn’t be trying to get everything done so that I could maybe make it to spinning class, I had my priorities all wrong. I should be doing what i need first and then cramming the rest in where it fit. Fortunately I made this realization three blocks from home so I zipped home, changed and grabbed my gym bag and headed for the gym and went spinning. And it’s a good thing I did because when the class was over and I walked back past the front desk, there was a note up canceling the 6:30 class that I was planning to take.
After all my errands when I was done at the gym and going to get something to eat I didn’t get home until 8pm and that meant I didn’t get to bed until 11. That made getting up this morning at 5am all the more difficult, but I did get up and I went to the gym for 6am spinning and rocked my own ride. Since Ray was still sleeping while I was out, I decided to take the extra time and go for a steam. A loooong hot shower and a very nice chat with one of the girls from the Tuesday morning class and I ws ready to head home. My sleepy boyfriend got up and together we made ham, eggs and hash browns for a nice holiday morning breakfast together.
Now I’m sipping coffee, relaxing and happy that I chose to make the harder choice, getting up and going to the gym instead of turning my alarm off and rolling over. I feel good. Plus, I heard a quote the other day about how the only rest worth having is that which is earned. I’m earning mine and enjoying it!
