Getting out of bed...

This morning, getting out of bed was a bit rough...not so much physically, but mentally.  I woke up and convinced myself that I just needed to stay under the covers all day...

I had to really work to determine what would motivate me in getting out of bed (after all, I did have 2 kids to get up, dressed and to school on time...)

Here is a glimpse of the converstation I had with myself:

Maybe I will get up and get the kids ready and take them to school and then come back home and sleep the day away...I could use a mental health day...

No, I am doing this Leslie Sansone challenge, I have to at least get up and do the 2 miles I had planned...or, I could do the 2 miles after I take the kids to school and come back and sleep some more...

No, I am going to just get up and do the 2 miles now...all dressed, maybe I could just wear this all day and lounge around the house, no workout needed, I think I have a sore throat anyway....Kelli has had a runny nose, maybe I am getting what she has....

NO!  Get your butt downstairs and do the 2 miles...you have to go to work because you are getting a Laptop today, there is a new co-worker starting today and you have several meetings with people who have a booked schedule anyway...maybe I'll take Friday off...

Let me just explain that after getting out of bed and getting the workout done...I am at work and feel great...my perspective is better (hey, wasn't the traffic great today)...I am excited to do the tasks I had planned for today (after blogging of course :))...

Not letting my lazy mind overpower what God had planned for me today...Success!

Here is to a great week!
