I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning. It was so comfortable.  I was supposed to run.  My track record for Monday mornings is not very good I’m afraid.  However, I got up about 20 min later than I would have – a couple of taps of the snooze.  With a mug of hot coffee in hand I started listening to some motivational stuff through my earbuds, sitting in the living room and watching the world wake up. I love starting the day like this.


It was a nice weekend at home. Fall is in full swing. I enlisted the kids to rake leaves on Friday eve. Forced them to do it is more accurate – truth be told. It was a little frustrating, but I got an hour out of them.  Just trying to teach them that we are all in it together. We all have to participate in the upkeep of the house/yard.

I’ve gained 8 lbs. since the spring. And I am so tired today. I couldn’t stay awake this morning and I can stay awake this afternoon. My diet has really gone off the rails. I know that if I cut sugar, bread and alcohol I’ll be in a much better place.  I know I can do it.  I’ve done it before.
