Its a new day

So I think I worried myself to exhaustion last night fell asleep on the couch at 10:30 at woke up there around 3:30. I woke up determined today to make this a better day.

Since I was up early I got an extra long carido session in today. I did the gutbuster 11 mile course on the expresso bike and a 2.5 mile run on the treadmill. Tonight I plan on doing a core specific workout from exercise tv but haven't decided on which one yet.

I know that this is the week before "my week"( sorry male readers) so my hormone levels are a little crazy but I am trying to put things in perspective and surround myself with positivity. I thought I would start by making a list of things that I am thankful for.

1) I am thankful for my family. A supportive husband and father, 4 smart healthy kids that drive me crazy at time but who I'm proud of and love just the same. Knowing that they depend on me to help develop and support them keeps me pushing along.

2) My Mom and Sister- My mom is always there when I need her, she watches the kids, is always there for support and is just an overall awesome person. My sister is also great, she is always there for support and was part of my inspiration to lose weight like she did. She also got me to start running and I look forward to racing again with her soon.

3) My job- While this year has been frustrating, I am glad that my company has offered me a way of helping to support my family. I hope some of the changes coming up for the fiscal year will equate to more earning and career potential but with the way the economy is now a days I am grateful to be starting my 5th year here.

4) My health- I am glad that I took the time and continue to take the time to make my health a priority. I am grateful that my body allowed me to give birth to 4 beautiful healthy children, that my legs are strong and allow me to run long distances, that my arms are strong and are able to pick up and play with my kids.

So this post has taken a little bit of a mushy turn but I need to keep reminding myself that while things are not ideal at the moment, they could be a lot worse and that I should be grateful for all that I do have.

I just finished a promising call with a client who may sign on this month so this day is already heading in the right direction. Hope you can all take a minute to think about what your thankful for when things start to get a little overwhelming.

Hope everyone has a great day.
