It's going to be a good day.
First – I found this video. How can that not make you smile?
Second – I finally managed to get myself into the gym today and did my core routine. It's been a full week and I know from experience that if I blow it off for more than seven days it is very hard to get going again. Both because by then I am out of the habit and because my core is noticeably weaker.
Third – the morning was brilliant. Blue sky, sun and I only needed two shirts and no layers on my legs to ride to work. For various reasons this is the only day this week that I have managed to commute to work on my bike so that helped lift my mood as well.
Fourth – [Yes, I realize I will sound like a girl saying this...] I stepped on the scale (having not done so in ages) after eating breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Your mind can play tricks on you when you feel down in the dumps and for better or worse weight is something that affects my mood when I'm already bummed.
