How ever do we get it all done?

What a week!  My intent was to get another post up much earlier in the week but we added so many things into our time that it just couldn't happen!

Oliver's little friend, Maybelle, is with us three or four days a week now.  Her dad, Ike, is on tour with his band, The Wilders, for a few weeks and lucky us gets to hang out with her!  She gets here super early in the morning (7:30) and I am not a morning person.  Sooo, in an effort to keep the whole experience positive and fun, I'm getting up at 6am and exercising.  Yup, me, exercising, at 6am.

I have to say that I love it.  I know.  What on earth is there to love about exercising in the first place, much less at that ungodly hour?  Well, that part isn't so great, but the rest of the day is amazing!  My energy level is way up, my mood is better; I can't think of anything better!

Oh, what am I doing, you ask?  Well a little running/walking on the treadmill and T-Tapp.  My stepmom, Pat, got me into T-tapp and let me tell you, the program is kinda amazing.  After my four initial days, I can already feel my body adjusting itself and holding itself in new ways.  My posture is better, my tummy is pulling in, my lower back feels better.  My chiropractor even noticed the difference in my back after only three days, without me even saying anything!

Today is my first day 'off' from exercising and I still got up early to keep up the sleep reprogramming effort.  As a bonus, I've had time to write this while waiting for Oliver to wake up.  I've also had time to brainstorm some new projects and reflect on some that are in progress.  Could there be another post in my near future?  Check back to find out!

  1. Such a positive and inspiring post! I love early morning workouts--since the half marathon last saturday I got sick and haven't worked out at all this week and I definitely feel much more moody and out of whack. Can't wait to get back to it.
