Back in January I had hernia surgery. I was supposed to have plastics done on my ab too, but insurance fell through and it was not something we could just afford to put “on the card”. I have been touch and go on exercising since then. More “touch” than go, I must admit. I made a mind commitment last week to start going back to the gym. It stayed in my mind for the entire week! This morning, however, I dreamed I was turning off the alarm and getting up. Then I dreamed it again, and again and even a fourth time! By now I was more than just half awake. Lying in bed, I was like “Okay God, if I’m supposed to get up and go, give me some reason to do so!” Right then Lily, our cat, jumped on my stomach and started clawing! Not kneading, but clawing! I jumped out of bed to the mental sounds of “Here’s your sign!” and got hubby up and moving.
So, in 20 degree weather, we have started going back to the gym. Today was the first day, but I’ve got to admit it felt good. And it felt even better to shower, get all lotioned up, and be dressed and ready to face the day by 6:30 a.m. I’m going to have to remember that tomorrow morning, when it’s 7 degrees outside and I’m snug and cozy in my bed.
Hope your day is great.
