Some days are just really, really good days. Yesterday and today have been spent decorating the house for Christmas. I didn't get any official exercise yesterday, but I did get half an hour on the elliptical today. So, why am I so happy? I had the energy to do so much more than I have in the last several years.
Instead of waiting for Steve to bring in the boxes and unpack them, I went out to the garage, found what I wanted, and carted everything in. Before he even knew what I was doing, I had almost everything in and set up. I was so proud of myself!
Of course, the tree itself was a big deal to decorate, and Steve did all the outdoor decorations. But, overall, this was a really 'energetic' year for me. So, even though it wasn't a lot of 'exercise', I was more active this weekend than I have been in a while. And, I am thrilled about it!
And, now that Thanksgiving is over, and the house is decorated, I can focus on enjoying the holiday season, and make sure I get my exercise in. There is nothing like the feeling of knowing my house is mostly clean, the decorations are up, the shopping is mostly done, and I can enjoy the holidays. I am just so happy and peaceful. I need this to last!
