Bright Eye’d and Bushy Tailed!

August 7, 2014

That’s how I felt when I woke up yesterday morning! Bright Eye’d and Bushy Tailed!

Between my Advil PM, and the breathing technique’s I’ve learned in Yoga, I’ve been going to sleep easier, and actually staying asleep. I had TWO good nights in a row, and that just never happens. I’m a total tosser and turner. Some mornings I wake up exhausted from all of the tossing and turning!! Not yesterday morning though. I woke feeling super rested and ready for the day!

I always say I am going to exercise before leaving to go work the Food Truck on Wednesday’s, but I rarely do. Yesterday morning, I took care of my morning chores, put on my exercise clothes and headed out the door with Tucker!

As Tucker attempted one of our traditional “sniff and stroll’s” I said to him….

“Nope. We’re running this mile buddy! It’s beautiful outside this morning, We got a good night’s sleep! We’ve got these strong legs we can run on. I woke up in a really good mood, and we are running!!” Yeah, I was feeling all sorts of extra happy for some reason, so I went with it!

So we ran. We ran our mile, (I didn’t even trip over the leash once!) then we walked a mile. I hopped in the shower, ate a yummy breakfast, then headed off to the Food Truck for another very successful Wednesday!

I’ll be heading to the lake today, so I’ll be back with the weekends shenanigan’s on Monday!

I hope you all had a Great Day!
