Virtuous cycle

 

Cycle.png

  • Get up early, a bit sleepy but also a bit looking forward to the gym
  • Make husband a coffee.  Get a kiss.
  • Eat a simple breakfast, and enjoy a soy latte.
  • Hit the gym;  squat, squat, squat.
  • Endorphins surge; feel pretty good!
  • Get to work;  still feeling charged and happy.
  • Get a lot done…. ’cause I am unstoppable!
  • Have a GREAT day at work.
  • Go to a happy home.
  • Chill with hubby.  Couch time is good, and I already worked hard today.
  • Go to bed: set alarm for 5 AM, because this cycle is magic….
  • Repeat…..

 

 

A quick peek back….

I am visiting Montreal this week… and went into our local office after a client visit, and Immediately ran into someone I trained on Project Management – in a 3 day session in Oct 2014.

She was like “Woah!  Look at you, blah, blah….”.  And reminded me that when I trained them, I had talked about adult learning, and how I had just joined a gym and was having to hold someones hand in order to squat, or I’d fall over.  I guess I used it as an analogy to some other topic in the sessions.

Anyway, I was 35# heavier then.  And probably walking with a bit more swagger now.  🙂   ……And she said … “I guess you figured it out . ”

Yeah, I guess I did!

I love training on Fridays….

I don’t know how that warrants a full post, but it does.   I have been like “I feel great.  I love gym on Friday. Wow, I feel pumped. blah blah blah .” So…. either I am having a bit of a moment…. or there’s something to this Friday thing. It’s happened before, so I am going with the latter.

 

what’s the skinny?

In the last 2 weeks, I’ve been called ‘skinny’ twice.  Not that I am skinny…. technically, I am still overweight.  But it was an acknowledgement of my progress, and meant to be flattering. And truly; it was;  I felt the smile immediately rise.

Still; each time it left me thinking after :  why THAT word?  It’s kind of weird that somehow that’s a compliment.  And I am not shitting on anyone intent;  after all, I was flattered…. but there is something a bit off, I think, that the word has some sort of value associated with it. I can’t quite place my feelings, but…. I have decided I don’t like that word.
