Break in the Routine - and it's okay!

Ain't that the truth?!
This morning when my alarm went off at 4:50am, I set it to 5:30am.
I didn't want to get out of bed to work out.
I was definitely, intentionally going against what I should do.
Because?   I just didn't want to stop sleeping.
But what happened?
I woke up every 5 minutes or so, saying to myself,
"You Should Be Working Out Right Now."
But still
I laid there
Warm under the big fluffy comforter
Little Love laying against my back
(he gets in our bed every morning at 4am, like clockwork)
All comfy-cozy
At 5:15-ish, my hubby nudges my leg,
"You're supposed to be working out."
But I still laid there and then 5 mins later, took a long hot shower.
And it was okay.
It's okay that I skipped my workout today.
I am disciplined...believe me.
One missed workout isn't the end of the world.
My morning routine didn't get messed up.
{because you know that when the routine gets messed with, it drives me up the wall!}
So instead of making myself feel guilty for not working out...
Instead of making myself feel bad...
Instead of putting myself down...
I didn't.
I was okay with it.
It's not going to be a regular occurence.
That would not be a good thing after all the hard work I've been putting in...
I will keep with my workout routine and eating right regimen.
I will be better than I was yesterday.
I'm just not going to worry too much about it today.
There's always tomorrow morning.
Always a new beginning.
Always a good time to start again.
Breaks are okay.
Trust me.


  1. That is also what I tell the teenagers I work with! They have a choice to be grumpy and miserable all day or they can choose to move past it and enjoy their time and learn and grow!

    It works well for a lot of things :)

  2. Breaks are great! They give you the motivation to work that much harder when they're over. Besides, how can you resist some extra snuggle time every now and then?


Hey Lovey! You're commenting! You just made me happier than...well, me with a Chestnut Praline Latte. (Yes, now you know what to order for me if we ever go to Starbucks - lol)
