Well, I did it.
Got up at 5:45, was on the treadmill by 6, and in the shower by 7 AM. By 7:15, I was looking up the train schedule on my iPhone when I decided to quick check my work calendar, and realized that I had an 8 AM meeting.
So I didn't take the train to work -- which is too bad, because I'd just downloaded a new book that I was excited to dig into -- but I did burn 400 calories, STRETCH, eat a healthy breakfast, remember my lunch, park in the cheap parking ramp, and roll in on time for m 8 AM meeting.
I'm reminded of the words that always inspire my morning workouts: You always have time for the first thing you do every day.
Now that I'm here, I can relax into my work day - I can work without the pressure of having to leave at a certain time in order to avoid rush hour / change clothes / get to gym / get home in time to make dinner... I can just BE. And that's a good thing - because we have dinner plans with friends tonight.
Next goal: make healthy food and drink choices at whichever restaurant we choose.
But so far, I'm calling today a success.
Off and running,
