I'm feelin' good, actually. Damn good. I've been getting up early every day, although not as early this week, and gettin' it in the gym every day before I clock in. I'm only on my second full week of a consistent workout routine, but I feel goooood. The very first thing I noticed has been an increase in my energy level. I don't have a problem getting up early, and it's not tough to make it thru the day.
I also feel stronger. Not just Hulk-like stronger (although there is a bit of that), but mentally stronger. I feel like I stand a little taller and have a little more of a presence. I feel like people are starting to notice me.
I'm happier. I haven't had as many mood swings lately. I haven't been as irritable. I have a sunnier (sunnier than usual) outlook on things. I think that's mostly due to a healthier diet. I've completely cut carbs out from dinner (aside from a tiny sprinkling of cheese in my salad, anyway), and I've been supplementing meals with protein shakes to increase my calorie intake. I know it sounds crazy and counterproductive, but I really hadn't been taking in enough calories before, and that has some drastic effects on the body and mind.
I've also been getting more educated about fitness and nutrition. "Champions Body For Life". Great book, check it out if you have a second.
I feel like Mr. M and I have a stronger bond these days. We don't get to spend as much time together because I'm working later, but I feel like the time we do get is being better-spent.
It's nice to be a part of something I believe in.

No, it's not. Well, it hasn't been. This is gonna be a really short post because I'm in a hurry... I've been spending 15 and 16 hour days in the gym lately (no, I'm not body building, it's my job). When I get home, it's been dinner and bed. Today is really no different. Gotta go put lunch together for me and Mr. M and get ready to hit the elliptical before putting in a full day of work. So....happy Tuesday!!
