Monday Motivation: The Mojo is coming Back

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.  
~Abraham Lincoln

Reason's why I think the Mojo is coming back:
  • I went to bed before 10:00PM last night.
  • I didn't sleep throughout the 8 hrs I was in bed, but the fact that I was in bed for 8hrs increased the amount of sleep overall. This is way better than what I was getting going to bed after midnight + waking up in the middle of the night for no reason.
  • My coughing fits are fewer and farther between which meant I got to go to my Krav Maga self-defense class tonight, so needed the work out.
  • I got 75 CORE exercises done...could've done more, but I'm happy to start slow
  • Awesome dinner (I still eat too much, but this was just so delicious):
    • A couple thin slices of cold Tri-tip with a couple small slices of sundried tomato bread
    • A couple pieces of San Joaquin Gold cheese with a couple small slices of Sunflower Honey bread and honey for dipping
    • A handful of Blueberries
  • Despite a very full day of work work work, I was in great spirits all day!
  • I tracked all my food today.
  • My hubby went for a 2 mile run with one of the dogs and I am just so excited he went. He hates running and when I asked him how it went he gave me the death stare, but the fact of the matter is Super Hubby ran 2 miles and I am so proud him!
Why I Kick A$$: Because I like to try new things. There is a hot pot of amaranth prepared like oatmeal on the stove so that I can have breakfast pre-made for a few days. 

Who eats Amaranth? How do you prepare/use it (seed form, not flour)?
Thankful Three:
  1. For dumb ass boy movies like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"
  2. For Melatonin
  3. For my new book find, "The Maze Runner"-why have I not discovered teen books before Hunger Games and now The Maze Runner. So fun to read!

Ohh, The Maze Runner huh? I loved Hunger Games...great series. I think I already told you that maybe. I love your Why I kick Ass parts to your blog...I always get excited to read that part. ;) Yay for your hubby getting out there with you. Sorry I've been lame about reading your blog...I'm so behind on all blogs but I love yours so just know that even if I don't comment, I'm still here. :)

Want to hear a funny story.... seven years ago my g.f. really wanted me to start running. It bugged that she did, but to get her to stop nagging (I'm not saying you are) I ran out the door, then walked to the golf course and watch them play for an hour. Went home and splash water on my shirt to replicate running. I kinda changed my attitude about running :-)

Yea for more sleep! It does wonders for me.

I'm an amaranth virgin, but very curious about it!
