Let me explain..
I was spoiled all summer long. I was free 2 head outside for a hike through the trails, run barefoot on the grassy dike, bike on the country roads, kayak in the river, and head 2 the gym. Anytime! Early mornings before the Today Show. Midday after The View. Evenings before the Soap Channel. Ahhhhh, the freedom. The endorphins!
That was my summer. This is my autumn. Or, better refered 2 as ‘my fall’. I fell right off the wagon!
First day back 2 work, not a problem…got the workout in and off 2 a great start. Everybody is happy.
Second day back 2 work, great! I can do this (combine a full teaching schedule with taking care of myself).
Day three. Here’s where it started 2 fall apart.
Day four. This was day 2 of no physical outlet for stress…A.K.A. no exercise.
Day five. I was just plain mean and ugly. Just ask my husband, he usually takes the brunt of it.
I knew what I had 2 do. I always know what 2 do…I just have 2 know enough to do it.
I put my running shoes on and headed out the door 2 refill my prescription.
Okay. More days have passed and I remain consistent. I may not take that dose at the same time of day every day. But I don’t miss a day.
I’m not going 2 let this prescription run out.
I’m addicted and everybody’s happy. Just ask my husband, he knows I function best on caffeine and endorphins. When I’m happy, he’s happy. It’s the best medicine!
