Happy Wednesday! It’s that time again when I want to hear all about the good going on in your life. Tell me why you’re happy today. It can be something big, something small, but if it makes you happy, I want to know about it. I am a true believer that if we share our good in the world, it can overcome all of the evil around us.
I’m still in Charlotte for the week visiting my in-laws with the kids. I love traveling over the summer with the kids because it’s relaxing for me and the kids enjoy spending time with their grandparents. It’s somewhat hard to maintain our schedule while we are away, but we’ve been trying the best we can. The toughest part for me is keeping with my workout routine.
For those of you that don’t know, I started working out over a year ago to try to lose some of my post-baby stuff. What was something that I wanted to change for physical appearance only, turned into a passion for me and an outlet. It’s the only time during the day when I can focus on me and only me.
Thankfully I’ve maintained somewhat of my normal workout routine while we’ve been away. Last night was a cardio session and usually I just do either the elliptical or the spin bike. Tonight, I did both, but got bored very quickly, so I decided to take a stab at the treadmill. I don’t usually do the treadmill because A. I hate running and B. I have bad feet which doesn’t coincide with running too well. Well tonight I decided to go for it and actually ran for 15 minutes. This is a HUGE accomplishment for me. I’m finally in good enough shape that I can run for 15 minutes without feeling winded or wanting to get off immediately. This was a big accomplishment for me and I left the gym with a smile on my face.
Now tell me something good. Something that’s made you happy. It can be big, it can be small, just something that has put a smile on your face. You can participate by sharing a photo on Wednesday with the hashtag #WhyImHappyWednesday and tagging me @amommyinthecity or feel free to write it in the comments below. I do read them all and am happy to reply back on your good news! You can also join in the conversation on my Facebook page!
