Normally, I’m an after work exerciser. I get up at 6:30, get to work around 9:00, leave work around 5:00, and get to the gym by 6:30- not to get back home again until 7:30 or 8:00. It makes for a long day. So last night, when I noticed that my 6:30pm spin class was already full, I decided to go with the flow (Me? Go with the flow? I know!) and sign up for the 5:15am class.
Even though I had to get up at 4:45am- an hour of day I haven’t seen since I don’t even know when– I got my 45 minute kick butt workout in before the sun came up. And I loved it. I left class feeling energized, and had one of the best days at work I’ve had in a long time. Usually I start feeling sluggish by…11am? But today, I just kept going. And on a Monday morning, too! I think I need to try the morning workout thing more often!

Besides the early morning workout that I’m feeling rather proud of (Jordan didn’t think I’d be able to get up that early…I showed him ;)), I have an even better reason to feel FitFluential today.
Last week, I applied to be a FitFluential Ambassador. After reading blog after blog from girls in the FitFluential Ambassador program, I thought that it was something I could do. Something that I really wanted to do. So, I wrote an essay, told them my story, and waited for feedback. And today’s email gave me all of the feedback I needed…
I am now a FitFluential Ambassador! I am so thankful, honored and excited to be a part of this program. A program that supports fitness enthusiasts of all levels, a program that encourages overall health and wellness, a program that emphasizes the importance of balance. If you’ve ever noticed the copious amounts of chocolate that I
inhale consume, you know that I’m all about balance ;).
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my week. Now, I must go end my day with ‘The Bachelor.’ It’s all about balance, I said :).
Tell me one good thing about your Monday.
How are you FitFluential?
