My Deal ... I Follow Through!

Oh my gosh guys! I all of a sudden realized I was 12 minutes away from when my blog post for the day is emailed out to the few folks that are subscribed to my blog. :)

I wanted to keep my promise to myself to write to me ... for me!

I seriously have been feeling 1,000 times better since I made this rule to put myself and my happiness first.

I needed the push to be balanced again.

As I have said this before this comes in ebs and flows. 

But right now I need to focus on that balance.

Soooo whether that is writing in my slice of the internet or taking the time Monday to go to the my favorite gym classes. I am seeking what makes me smile at the end of the day.

Today I wanted to share how proud I was of myself for holding myself accountable and getting out of bed at 5:30am to get to the pool by 6am.

You know how I was rewarded?

With an EMPTY freakin' pool! That's right friends. I had the pool to myself. It was glorious. I wanted to hit snooze, but I had posted my proclamation of going to the gym on Twitter and Facebook.

And that made me STICK TO IT! I knew that probably no one saw it, but I pretended they did so I wanted to hold my promise.

It was awesome. I swam 1700m (1.06 miles) and it was HEAVEN! I haven't swam that much in months and it felt great... but let's see how the arms feel in the morning. :P 

So for now - as I go back to snuggling puppies and catching up with my wife - I wish you a Happy 4th!

May the 4th Be With You!
