KC! that is fantastic! i can almost feel your stress/relief cycle when you are talking to yourself LOL!! it is amazing how when we stop and pay attention to how we are feeling about a situation and look for whatever positive we can find it can immediately drop the stress level a few degress! made me happy just to read that!! woohoo!
i actually walked (nor running yet) the other day and yesterday got up at 5am to work out/streatch/start organizing my home office. this morning i slept in until 6:30 but i also ate a healthy breakfast of yogurt and a kashi bar and did NOT stop at starbucks on the way in! that's HUGE for me since i have gift cards
but i figure i will end up going after lunch so this way it's only once today instead of twice hehehe
