You would imagine, I woke up with such enthusiasm that I threw back the covers, grabbed my robe and ran down the stairs to my kitchen to make breakfast. Excited that today, TODAY I get to put food into my body. You would think! This did not happen.
I was excited to wake up, as I am every morning ( gratitude), but instead of jumping out of bed and flying through my room like a tornado - I found myself waking up calmly and feeling very chill. It was beautiful quiet morning and I wanted to enjoy it. The house was still no one had awaken yet and I took the opportunity to do something I've been meaning to do for months. Meditate.
My stomach rumbled a little bit, but at this point it was OK. I knew food was coming, my cleanse (my fast) had ended and today I would be enjoying delicious shakes and a awesome lunch! I just wanted to savor this light, empty feeling for a moment longer.
The past 2 days were a challenge but with it brought a sense of accomplishment and power.
I eventually did go downstairs, had one of the best smoothies I've had in a long time; enjoyed lunch at my favorite Greek restaurant with my favorite person (my mom) and had a kick ass workout at Orangetheory to round out my day.
In the famous words of Ice Cube ~ " Today was a good day ".
