Well howdy doody my little snickerdoodles!
How was your week? Bananas in pajamas? Smooth sailin?
Well, whether it was easy peasy or was mega stinky, you’ve arrived at your weekend in one piece.
How was our week?
Ah, well, between our continued teething and subsequent low grade fevers, refusal of solids and bottles and sippy cups, AND six month vaccinations, it’s been a little on the rocky side.
Momma was in need of an adult beverage by Thursday evening, especially after little McNugget decided to transform from my little sleeping angel boy into a bellowing banshee from 2:30-4:30 a.m. Thursday.
Not cool, son, not cool.
Alas, did I pitty party and stay in my pajamas snooze all day Thursday?
Nope. I sipped a little pumpkin spice coffee, threw on my workout clothes for a 20-minute strength+cardio session, and thanked my Father:
In a world that is all too overcome by negativity and criticism and division, I always start my day off with positivity and gratitude.
I’m thankful to have this body that can nourish and comfort my son, that can run for miles, that can do the inclining/declining monkey bars, that can encourage and inspire others to seek better versions of themselves.
So how about you? Maybe your workouts or food choices weren’t the best this week. Maybe things at work or with your family were a little off, a little overwhelming, a little disappointing.
Well, today is a new day. A new week is ahead of you. Starting right now, not tomorrow or Monday, focus on what is going well in your life, what God is blessing you with at this moment.
Then, keeping that in mind, move forward with your day remembering you have been given this one life and this one body to do good. Taking care of yourself is crucial to helping that body be its best.
Here’s the ways I did my body some good this past week. No matter what, I made sure I at least got in a little walking every day. I didn’t always make it to the gym, but I made a point to move daily.
I think we could all agree that’s a solid goal for all of us. Agreed?
So take a gander at my workouts and do some good for your body TODAY!
