I woke up on the wrong side of the bed on Wednesday. Almost immediately, the day was meh. A normally energizing hour trainer spin was a slugfest, my heart rate in the mid 150s (don’t let the smile in the photo below fool you). A minute before running out the door to work, a glass container shattered to smithereens on the kitchen floor. And, to top it off, I’ve physically been feeling pretty sub-par and ugly lately; thank you, too much eating out (hidden gluten = bloated belly), too many nights out, one too many glasses of Malbec and not enough sleep.
And, so, with a gentle reminder from Lauren on twitter – THANK YOU! – that I have the power to adjust my attitude and restart my day, each and every day, I’m doing just that.
Hitting the reset button.
I’m making changes to live my best life, day in and day out. It begins and ends with: quiet time at home, an attitude of gratitude, adventures with Nick, good ol’ gluten-free home cookin’, sister nights and snuggling with Finley, sweaty swimbikerun pursuits, an occasional night out with my best gal pals, teapots of peppermint tea and lights out by 10:30p.
With that simple decision, I feel better already.
How do you live your best life?
Happy weekend, friends.
