I need to remember how much better I feel when I get up early. Maybe not as well-rested, but much more on top of things and productive. And I am actually more productive! It’s not just a feeling. It’s 11:30am, and I’ve already written a three page paper and gone to two classes! Success.
Today I was feeling really sad. It’s hard to motivate myself to work at all, and I felt like I just flitted around, half working, half wasting time. I called my mom, today’s her birthday, and I got to talk to my family, which helped a bit, and I’m starting to work now. We’ll see how this goes.
I’ve been sick the past couple of days, but I think I’ll be well enough tomorrow to go for a short run, especially if it’s not too cold out. I need to get back into the habit of weighing myself every morning, too. It’s a simple, easy way to keep myself on track, but somehow it always slips my mind.
Today’s run was pretty great. It feels so good to get back into normalcy again, knowing I can do things and they’re within my control. I finished up my physics homework today, and am excited for what the rest of the week holds. Now, I’m off for a swim with a friend, and hopefully will be in bed and exhausted before midnight. I haven’t been sleeping too well and I’m trying to fix that.
Today was a better day. I didn’t get a chance to workout, I had class from 9:30am to 9pm with minimal breaks. I got a lot of academic stuff done in between though! Even if it’s not enough time for a run. Tomorrow’s much less busy, and I’m looking forward to a longer bridge loop and grocery run — I’ve got some quinoa and I’m looking forward to trying some new recipes. Also on the agenda is laundry…. Not so much fun but not terrible.
I went for a run this morning with my friend Erin. It was my first run in months, and it felt so good. It’s been a rough few weeks, and I feel like I’ve been walking in the darkness, but now I’m headed towards the light. There’s nothing like a little hope to keep you afloat.
I’ve set some goals and started using Lift to try to do them everyday. Some goals:
- wake up before 9am every day
- eat breakfast
- tidy up my room every day
- no electronics for an hour before bed
- running or other aerobics 3x/week
That’s by no means all the goals, but a good representative sample. Today, I’m feeling good and optimistic.
