Day 37

I rolled out of bed just before 6 am and meditated with hubby before he headed off to work. I admire people who can get up at 6 am, especially in winter. I was the type of morning person who would go to bed as the sun came up not waking up with the sun. Thankfully I don’t have to get up that early often.

I was almost pain free when I woke up, which made the idea of working out much more pleasant. Soon as the workout started, so did the pain. I wasn’t sure how I’d make it through both workouts but I did it. It took a lot of focus, focus I didn’t realise I had. (I think the meditation is working.) Then it didn’t take long for my body to recover after the workout, so that was encouraging. I’m feeling like I’m moving in the right direction.

I haven’t done a lot of creative today. My knitting has sat untouched under the coffee table and no ‘How to’ video has been watched. I only picked up my camera at the end of the night when hubby made a yummy hot chocolate and I managed to balance a spoonful of melted marshmallows on the cup rim.

I have had a really relaxed day and enjoyed every second of it. The night is almost done, hubby is watching the football and I’m sitting here smiling. I don’t think I’m smiling for any particular reason either. It’s a nice feeling. An unfamiliar feeling.

Here’s Day 4 of the writing challenge. If you’d like to see the full challenge details, click here. All 30 days will be posted here.

Day 4: Write about someone who inspires you

People who overcome extreme adversity. Adversity takes a lot of courage, strength and determination to overcome. The worse the situation, the harder it is to find the strength. There is nothing more inspiring than knowing someone has faced their challenges head on and won.

Day 30

What a day!! Hubby and I started the morning with meditation. It was so relaxing and uplifting. A perfect reminder that life is beautiful.

Hubby went to work and I went to do my workout. Uh oh, it wouldn’t play. I got instantly annoyed that I couldn’t work out, then more annoyed that I felt like that after the peaceful start to my day. I shook the bad mood off, pressed some buttons and 40 minutes later, got to my workout. I pushed myself hard and it felt great.

Seeing I had gotten one goal out of the way, it was time to start work on the second. I spent the next five hours working on my home, garden and creative project blog. I picked a layout and got to editing. It was almost scary how much I didn’t know. I read guides, I clicked, I tested, I cursed and I got it pretty much ready for its first post. Soon as I have something to post, it’ll go live.

Here is a quick picture I snapped of the mint plant growing on our kitchen windowsill. It was a test picture for the gallery section of the new site but I really like it and wanted to share.

Tomorrow I’m going to watch a knitting tutorial (because I now have knitting needles. Woo!) and draw something.
