This morning, I looked like this:

Horizontal. Comfortable. Half-asleep.

I vowed that I would go for a run in the mornings before work. Then I got sick last week and some odd throat virus knocked me on my tail.

Yesterday, I was finally feeling like myself again (thank you giant pink antibiotics), so I went for a run. Great. One day down, 29 to go.

This morning, my alarm went off at 7AM and I hit snooze like a million times. I didn't wan to get up I just kept sleeping.

Now if this has never happened to you, let me explain. I feel happy when I'm jogging. I feel great after I jog. But before I jog I suffer from what Mallory likes to call NOtivation. This morning it hit me hard.

But I tried something new. Instead of scolding myself I just let myself lay and wake up for 5 minutes. I checked twitter. I rolled over and stretched. And after a few minutes of letting myself adjust, I actually wanted to get up and run.

Miracles do happen.

Give yourself a little time. You never know what you'll discover.


  1. Great perspective! I have doing the same thing (slowly waking up/checking emails/twitter) ect before I actually get out of bed and I find it makes me up more than just rolling right out.

    And, after 7 weeks of working workouts I am officially a morning person. Now i just feel off if I miss it!

  2. Bahaha I LOVED this picture! I need to be better about getting up and out for a run in the morning! Maybe next time I will try your trick!
