For some reason I’ve spent the majority of today thinking this is a great Monday. Maybe it’s because I woke up for the first time hating a Monday and didn’t want to feel that way (yeah, I brain trick myself). Maybe it’s because it was supposed to rain all day and it hasn’t. Maybe it’s because every Monday starts a brand new week and I’m excited about all the possibility that it holds even if the first day is hard to get through. Besides, why waste a day in a bad mood when all my weeks here are flying past? I’m already on my fourth week here at Green Mountain at Fox Run.
If I was a normal participant here I would probably be entering my last week. I would be preparing to go home and get back into the “real world.” I think four weeks here is a great amount of time to stay. I feel like the concepts have been implanted in my mind and have grown roots and mixed with the things I already knew and believed. I feel better in my body with a few more pounds off it and my head is clearer without all the distractions that exist at home. If a retreat is what you need then this is a great place.
My second assessment is this week on Friday. I’m hoping to make this coming week as good as I can and have a super great check in at the end of the week. I want to get in more exercise while I’m here and have the chance. I missed out on doing a lot the last two weeks because I didn’t feel good or feel like working out for all such reasons. (It’s just not fun when you have a cold.) I still did plenty for how I was feeling but I want to make sure that this week is the best it can be since I feel the best I can feel.
In the words of my favorite personal trainer at the Y in Memphis, “Get it girl.”
And now, for some photos that I finally got from another person here:
On the step waiting during lower body conditioning.
On a Vermonting that same day… I wear a lot of pink, eh?
The group here during my second week, minus Rosanna. They are awesome!
So there is a little glimpse into my activities here. Classes, Vermontings, and cool peeps. Weekends are normally more varied, but I didn’t do any exercise yesterday besides walking while shopping, so all I have to include now is Sunday’s meals. It was a nice day off from doing much of anything at all. :)
1 hour upper body weight class
1 hour low impact step class
How was your Monday? Are you a fan of Mondays or do you just push through them knowing better days are coming?
