Yesterday I got up at 5 am and went into the icy living room and did a great lower body workout. Sometimes even when I am keeping it hella simple, I still feel good getting it done. Ideally, I like to work out for 45-60 minutes...closer to 45, but sometimes I only have time for 20-23 minutes and instead of waiting for the "perfect time" -because we all know that doesn't exist- I just get up and do what I can.
TOM must be near because I am like starved everyday and bloated and just "ugh", this is all classic PMS. So I am pushing through it. I didn't get enough quality sleep last nite (BFF has boyfriend troubles) AND I am off today, so I slept in and will do my workout at the gym around noon.
Last nite's late pumpkin seed fest while watching Scandal has my stomach feeling weird, but I had a great breakfast this morning.

- 1/2 c GF rolled organic oats

We are 18 days into 2013. Is it everything you thought it'd be? Have you been making real and lasting changes? If not, it is not too late. Just change your mind. There is a difference between "I can't" and "I won't". Make a decision to put yourself back on you to-do list and do what needs to be done to ensure you have a healthy and productive day. YOU ARE WORTH IT.
