Aha Moment

I was talking to The Kid the other night. He asked what was going on with me, usually we talk about him (right now his life is definitely more interesting). I told him that I want to make some changes and we discussed them. He then reminded me of what I would always say to him (hate it when they do that). "Mom, this is all just talk, I won't believe it til I see action." Well he is right, I have been all talk and no action.. That was quite the "AHA Moment" for me.

Well this morning I got my a** out of bed and went for a run...ok maybe it was a jog, and I packed a healthy lunch and snacks. No coffee stop and grabbed my water jug.

I called the number of a non-profit that has called me several times to volunteer my nursing services and I have never called them back. I have an appointment with them on Thursday.

It's a start.. I really need to get motivated, the life I want is not going to come to me, I have to go out and make it happen..

No coffee stop and...

Aiieee! Don't go TOO far, Shelly! Coffee does have its benefits, in addition to being oh-so-satisfying! ;-)

Other than that...Good on ya!

Buck,
Oh I still had coffee, I just had the plain ole black stuff at home instead of the fancy high caloric kind at the coffee shop...
