Watching the Sun Rise

PIN IT The sun rising at Dublin Park this morning. Isn’t it beautiful!

I have not been a good wanna-be-athelete the last few weeks… not even a little bit. I have had every intention of going out walking each morning but with the weather and staying up way too late and every other reason I can come up with, it has not happened…

Today though my alarm went off at 5:45 and instead of pushing snooze 20 times, I pulled myself out of bed, and strapped on my tennis shoes. I proudly sported the lovely bed head and raccoon eyeliner eyes I woke up with and hit the pavement. It was nice and quiet so I didn’t shock anyone with my disheveled appearance thankfully lol. It took a little while for me to completely start functioning but I eventually woke up and enjoyed the beautiful morning. It was gorgeous out and the perfect weather, I couldn’t have asked for more. I was proud of myself I actually got up and saw the sun rise! This is a rarity for me really.

What made the morning awesome was my daughter even got up and her boyfriend came over and joined me as well. We ended up putting in 3+ miles and even got to chase a few ducks. I am actually extremely lucky, you pretty much step off my drive way and you are in a gorgeous park with walking trails, soccer fields, tennis courts… you name it! I guess that is why I feel so guilty when I don’t go because I really have not excuse.

PIN IT Quack, Quack!

Now I just have to work on making this a habit again!

    Well done! I don’t run, but I often find it hard to get the motivation to do my own workout routine. I love the accomplished feeling of completing a morning workout. Hmmm…maybe I should go workout this morning.

      You should! It is a gorgeous day! I don’t run either… I am definitely a walker. I struggle with motivation but once you make it a habit it makes it so much easier.

    The habit part is always the hardest for me. I can do it for a few days, maybe a week and then bam something gets me off my schedule and it’s a month before I start again. I’d like to lose a few extra pounds. My clothes are tighter than I would like. I just need to get that habit making part conquered!

    Glad to hear your day started off so well!

      It really is hard to do. I went about 5 months where I didn’t miss a single day walking or working out and now it is a huge struggle. I back to making it part of my morning again though!

    5:45?? You’re a better person than I! I wish I had that kind of ambition to exercise!

      5:45 is too early for me as well! But if I want to walk with my daughter before school that is the time I have to drag myself out of bed lol.

      The park where I was is loaded with ducks and they love to follow you around as you walk by. Thank you for reading my blog!
