It’s Friday and the temperature is going to reach triple digits all weekend. Stay hydrated. Stay inside. Rent some movies, get some junk food and close the blinds. Forget the junk food and get some fruit … yeah, fruit.
I only missed one gym day this week and that was Tuesday. Tuesday is the day that I work on my legs and glutes (i.e. booty). Tuesday was a horrendous work day and at the end of that day all I wanted was a glass of wine and my comfy sofa. Plus, the last time I worked legs I had a difficult time walking for two days. I really need to adjust the weights. I’ll do better next week.
Take a minute to encourage someone today. Choose to do the right thing instead of the wrong thing. When the opportunity arises for you to insert the perfect sarcastic remark – refrain. Add some beauty to the world.
Every morning since I returned from the life-changing spa experience I have made a point to spend real, quality time with God. It has seriously made a difference. I get up, turn on the “Soothing Moments” CD that I got from my aesthetician, open the blinds, sit on the floor, look toward heaven, breathe deeply and just … meditate, pray, cry, whatever … it is the perfect way for me to start my day because it reminds me that whatever is in front of me is going to be okay. It reminds me that I am connected to something bigger than myself. It reminds me that I am not the center of the friggin’ universe. It keeps me humble. It keeps me focused. Those moments are essential. My house is quiet and it is the perfect opportunity not only to talk to God but also to hear from Him. I mean, I talk to him all day long but in the morning I have the chance to really hear from Him.
I haven’t really been out since the whole car-getting-stolen debacle. So on Sunday I’m going to a Summer Wine Social at one of my favorite restaurants. New wines to try and good food to sample, oh what could be better? I’m genuinely impressed each time I eat here. The food is creatively prepared and presented and their wine cellar includes over 5,000 bottles. I’m excited.
I just RSVP’d for Tuesday’s book club even though I didn’t read the book. Why? Because it’s a night out. I get to hang out with the smart girls and munch on munchies and sip on … you guessed it … wine!
I haven’t thought about cutting my hair for three days straight.
Life is pretty darned good.
Enjoy the weekend.
Stay cool and keep it classy.
** I noticed I mentioned wine alot in this post. Mmmmmm ... wine
