This morning, I looked like this:
Horizontal. Comfortable. Half-asleep.
I vowed that I would go for a run in the mornings before work. Then I got sick last week and some odd throat virus knocked me on my tail.
Yesterday, I was finally feeling like myself again (thank you giant pink antibiotics), so I went for a run. Great. One day down, 29 to go.
This morning, my alarm went off at 7AM and I hit snooze like a million times. I didn’t wan to get up I just kept sleeping.
Now if this has never happened to you, let me explain. I feel happy when I’m jogging. I feel great after I jog. But before I jog I suffer from what Mallory likes to call NOtivation. This morning it hit me hard.
But I tried something new. Instead of scolding myself I just let myself lay and wake up for 5 minutes. I checked twitter. I rolled over and stretched. And after a few minutes of letting myself adjust, I actually wanted to get up and run.
Miracles do happen.
Give yourself a little time. You never know what you’ll discover.
