This morning I had zero interest in going to the gym. None.
I was sleepy and had stayed up later than normal and was therefore dragging when I hit my snooze for the third time. But, as is often the case, once I open my eyes and my mind thinks its first thought of the day, I am up and have zero chance of going back to sleep. It doesn't matter what time it is, once I flip the switch, there is no shutting it down until the end of the day.
So then the debate raged, "Why don't I just shower at home and get into the office a little earlier?" But, fortunately I had already packed my gym bag and would have felt the need to retrace my steps and backtrack my actions from last night. I hate doing that. So I got up, got my bag, grabbed my keys and went to the gym.
It wasn't my best workout, but I had a pretty good steam afterward, even with the random old guy doing his aerobics in a towel next to me.
When I checked my inbox this morning, there was a quote by Sarah Bernhardt that says:
"Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich."
So event if my time pumping iron and getting my heart rate going with some cardio wasn't the most technically sound workout, it was enough to get my heart and mind going and start my day off the right way.
And of course that was followed up by a Venti Drip, Black.
