When the alarm went off at 5am, I really, really wanted to turn it off, roll over, and go back to sleep. I didn't, though. I got up, put on my sneakers, and trekked to the basement to do my 30-minute walk on the treadmill. I knew that if I didn't get that workout in first thing, it wouldn't happen.
From there, though, my day was decidedly blah. My breakfast was uninspired. I was hungry all day, even though I made sure to have protein at every meal. It snowed.
Even my students were out of it on this Monday after the time change. At least four of them went to the nurse with headaches. One was falling asleep at her desk during the moment of silence before the pledge. The noise level stayed to a low hum the whole day.
I know it doesn't help to watch the clock on days like this, but I couldn't help it. I kept glancing at the wall or down at my fitbit, willing time to pass so that I could leave and put this day behind me.
Of course, once school's out, I do my other job. I'm Mom... driving to and from dance classes, cooking dinner, helping with homework, then doing my own.
Here's hoping I go to bed early tonight so I can have a terrific Tuesday!
