Run After Your Dreams (literally)

chase your dreamsSeriously, this is SO ME!  As I lay in bed, I think of all the things I should have done and need to do the next day. I think of what I will do better and what I will quit doing. I reflect on both my failures and my successes. Since snacking at night is always a struggle, many nights I think “I blew it”. Sometimes it’s me fussing over 100 extra calories, sometimes it’s 500! Either way, as I lay there, I begin to imagine me burning them off.

I imagine waking up more motivated, strong and disciplined. Honestly, if I could run at night (Yes, technically I can run at night, but I don’t like running in the dark, and it IS bedtime, etc. Just humor me here!)… If I could run at night, I would bolt out of the house like lightening. (Of course this is just my imagination. I’m sure it wouldn’t look like I picture it in my head. Needless to say, I fall asleep thinking I will make it all better in the morning. My pulse even increases. I get excited. I get motivated. I picture myself extra determined and really disciplined. I remember how great it feels to run and how awesome I feel when I stay disciplined. I decide right then that I will start my day off right and I will erase those dang calories tomorrow! Yessss!!!

Now that I have a solid plan in place, I can rest. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Then I wake up. Ut Oh! Where did that girl go!? Where’s the girl that was ready to leap out of bed right into her running shoes? Yes, that girl! Where is she? Have you seen her? Maybe I’ll have a cup of coffee and give her some time to show up. Still no where to be found? OK, maybe I’ll have another cup of coffee. Hmmmmm. Maybe she’s waiting for me outside.

Time to put my running shoes on and go find her. Yes, I must search for her. She is out there somewhere. I can’t wait on her to show up. My results can’t depend on her. I must find her. I will go. I will chase her down. And, every morning I will search for her. Eventually I will find her. Eventually she will show. But until then, I’m running – with or without her!!

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to understand so much about this, such as you
    wrote the book in it or something. I think that you just could do with some p.c.
    to pressure the message home a bit, however instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

  3. Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  4. Hi, I do think this is a great site. I stumbledupon it ;) I’m going to revisit once again since I bookmarked it.
    Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and
    continue to guide others.

  5. I used to be suggested this blog by my cousin. I am now not certain whether this put up is written via him as nobody else know such
    special approximately my problem. You are amazing!
    Thank you!

  6. I had a Mirena IUD and it dropped out after a couple of months. I without a doubt would prefer not to experience that once more! At present on Yaz. I’ve picked up 30 pounds since August 2013 which is the month I had my IUD put in, yet I had other helping variables. Whatever hormonal difficulties I have from Bcps, I realize that at the end of the day in any case it going to be calories in, calories out. BCP may have swayed me to consume 2+ confections in one sitting, however I know I had a decision in the matter!
