9 pm hit & i feel like i've been up for three days straight. but i didn't even work out tonight (really) cause i got a phone call. who wouldn't rather spend the hour talking & getting to know someone? (heather) but - to ease my guilty conscience for not getting back on the treadmill, i totally jogged for 10 minutes in p.e. with my kids today. and maybe i didn't break a sweat (at least not til we played "quick feet" a fun little game) but - i got my 10,000 steps in today. what's the worst that can happen? i don't lose weight tomorrow morning? pretty sure that's not happening anyway. oh the worse thing that could happen is i gain weight back. that'd not be good.
the thing that has me alarmed about this whole early to bed thing is 2 fold. a)i don't want to get up in the morning, either. i'm still pooped. but - at least i'm sleeping solidly through the night. 2)i used to be a late-go-to-bedder. i functioned just fine on less sleep. why oh why is exercising cursing me? i thought my energy levels were supposed to go through the roof. not sink me into my mattress.
oh & ps - i'm in love. (no not due to ldssingles, wouldn't that be a kicker?) my little new student. he's so sensitive & tender. and loud. (aspergers) but he's sweet. and today when I told him I loved him, he didn't even hesitate to tell me right back. plus, when he told me about all three of his Rafael's & acted out their figurine stance, my heart couldn't help but melt for him. and in case you didn't know - "night vision rafael" has very squinty eyes. and when he asked me who my favorite ninja turtle is, i didn't hesitate to tell him "michaelangelo" (not necessarily true, just came to mind first) - he burst out laughing. cause that's funny. ??? anyway - he's a sweetheart.
how much money you wanna bet i won't be awake at 10? food for thought and words to live by. 'night!
