I know I semi-promised you all photos and stats for the end of Phase I for P90X, but um...my monthly visitor decided to show up and I'm bloated as a whale. I'm looking better this a.m., so maybe I will take those pictures tonight.
Last week, my mom said something rather profound (which is an unusual happening for her... just kidding ;) . We were sharing the usual "Thank God its Friday" banter, when she said, "you know, we spend all week wishing 5 days of our lives away just waiting for the weekend to arrive."
Wow. She's right! First thing Monday morning, I'm already praying to fast foward to Friday afternoon! All week, I grit my teeth and grumble "man, I wish it were Friday already!" What a waste! I'm wishing away 5/7 (71.4%) of my life!!!!
Sure, the weekends are wonderful, but weekdays are a matter of fact and here to stay. So, I've determined to instead of just trying to get through the weekdays in an effort to hurry up the weekend (which is futile since time cannot be sped up), I'm going to make an effort to enjoy EACH day for what it holds!
I love Monday for the freshness and newness of the new week. Its a re-set button, another chance to do things right.
I love Tuesday because I'm settled back into the week's routine.
I love Wednesday because its the halfway point. Even if I'm having a really bad week, I can console myself with the reminder that I'm half way through!
I love Thursday because you can really feel the week's momentum going and because the next day is Friday (sorry, I can't help it!).
What's there not to love about Friday? Its got a more relaxed vibe, a sense of "finishing up" and anticipation of the rest days to come!!!
Add yours - what is there to enjoy about the weekdays??
