I woke up actually feeling like Espresso Owl. Why? I finally had my first awesome night’s sleep in about a week.
I feel like a weight’s been lifted. My doctor gave me the all clear to start working out again. My healing is moving along nicely. I just have a few sutures that haven’t dissolved yet.
While I still need to take it easy, I can resume my training for a 10k and start lifting weights. Heck I’m even allowed to go swimming or take a bath.
I haven’t done anything for 7 weeks. Ugh! I’m so happy I’ve made a habit out of being active. I just can’t sit still anymore. It won’t be difficult to get back into the swing of things. The hard part will be the slow and gentle pace. My inclination is to go as hard or fast as possible. Not too bright. Last thing I want is an injury or screwing up my still healing abdominal area. I must be the turtle, not the hare.
But this weekend I’m focused on food prep, making meals for the week and a special project with the husband (minds out of the gutter!). I’m spending part of this beautiful morning gearing up to run the gauntlet that is Saturday grocery shopping. May my Espresso Owl energy stay with me.
Which morning owl are you?
