To be real....this past week was flat out just a bum week and I'm glad it's over. My only real accomplishment was getting my inbox down to SEVEN emails (which, I'm not going to lie, was AWESOME). But besides that, the week was a struggle. First of all, I've been feeling (for lack of a better phrase) spiritually stale. I know we all go through valley's....and I suppose I was due for one....but still...it sucks when it happens. Additionally, it was early in the week that my feelings got hurt - which I let set the tone for the remaining five days. And, I only made it to the gym twice....and both times all I did was the bare minimum - my scheduled workout with Cyrus....ZERO cardio. I let myself go as far as my eating went (I was doing so well!). My house is a disaster and my dogs need a bath. And this weekend.....well, this weekend was HOT....and HUMID....like whoa....I just felt like a slug.
But like I said, I'm PUMPED and ready for a new week - I'm determined to make THIS week a fabulous one. I'm a firm believer in everyone having the ability to "choose your attitude"....and it was last week that I just chose to let a couple of bad things determine my attitude....which was depressed, irritable, and sluggish. And now, I'm all finished wallowing in my self pity and ready to move past it. To kick it off, I'm going to sleep BEFORE midnight...and will wake up bright and early for the morning I dread the most from week to week - Monday morning. Monday mornings mean getting my butt kicked by Cyrus at the gym...and it's going to be awesome. :)))
You may have noticed from my first paragraph I said that my DOGS (as in plural) need a bath. Yes, this means we got a playmate for Ellen. Her name is Jazzy. I'll have to do a separate Jazzy post with a formal introduction. But for now, you can see her here in the Father's Day cards we made for our dads.
