Last week was rough, and the weekend was no better.
Last week I found myself in a sad, emotional, and vulnerable place. I felt myself slipping into a dark place that I am awfully familiar with. My world stops, time slows down, and I close myself off. There is nothing productive or healthy about this.
Love, kindness, and support pulled me back from the brink of darkness. This is a victory that I am thrilled to have!
Today, I am super happy it’s Monday and extremely thankful to be off from work until Thursday. Monday couldn’t have been any better and the week is off to a great, healthy start!
Today’s workout: Honestly, I didn’t want to workout. It was still feeling kind of blah, but I knew I had to do it. Somewhere, somehow I just decided to do it. It came in two parts: cardio and arms. Continuing the training I started last week and finished off with a short arm workout.
Monday continued to be very productive after my workout.
Funny how workouts can do that to a person.
I did some small chores around the house before deciding to clean and spruce up my bathroom. Before there was clutter all over the counters, not a whole lot of organization, and containers/jars that weren’t being utilized.
The end result was a clean counter top and a bathroom that smelled like a delicious coffee shop.
I have a place to store cotton balls and q-tips. My make-up brushes are clean and stored in their own jar. Digging through a tote of lip glosses is a thing of the past, and the all in a jar for easy grab and go.
You might notice there are coffee beans in those jars. Well, in all my surfing of Pinterest I have seen coffee beans used in many different decorative ways. Today I played with that idea.
I like feeling productive and knowing I am accomplishing something. So thank you, Monday, for being better than yesterday. This is all I can ask for.
