"Who is this person and what have you done with my wife?"

As I rolled out of bed Friday morning at 5:30 a.m. to go out for my morning walk/jog (yes, I'm doing a little jogging between mailboxes), the question from John was (as he snuggled down into the covers a little more): "Who are you and what have they done with my wife?"  We both laughed hysterically!

Legitimate question I'm a little embarrassed to admit. He's used to me hitting the snooze on the alarm for WELL over an hour. I am NOT a morning all!! I 'snooze' usually until the absolute last minute I know I have to get up. We call that .... drop dead, feet on the floor wake up time! I get mad at him if he sets the alarm for the actual time I need to get up! lolol  Alway always ALWAYS I have to have at LEAST 30 min snooze time minimum.  :-)  So the fact that I've been up so early consistently these past two weeks is shocking to us both!

So week 2 of 12 is finished. On to week 3! This past week's highlights involved new things that push me out of my comfort zone. You know, that place where we feel 'safe' and are uncomfortable stepping out of? Well, I've been there a couple of times this week. 1) writing this blog, 2) dipping my toe into practice of meditation. My Zafu (google it) is comfortable but interesting trying to balance and sit on it properly. Trying not to overthink it (quiet the mind) so if there's a way to shut off this constant to-do list running in my head? I'm all for it.  3) Each week John & I have agreed to try at least one new food or recipe. This week was jicama and beets!! Jicama? yummmmm  Beets? not so much.  We'll definitely keep working on different ways to enjoy jicama. Beets? I think we're done with. hahaha

As I'm writing this, its 11:50 pm and the Women's Gymnastics event is on the tele (as they say in the UK) so, since I'm having a little trouble concentrating, I'll leave you with this short and sweet post.

By the way, John is incredibly supportive! I think he's enjoying the transformation that has begun for us both!

Philippians 1:6  "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
