sleekening it if possible...

So this morning when i woke up at the ripe hour of 530am EST, I said to myself...why do people get up this early and go to the gym? Then my subconsious(the reasonably part of my brain) said, "Marisa, you owe it to yourself to start this day off on the right foot!. So Dragged myself up and out of that comfy bed and grabbed my cellphone, my jewels and my gym bag(packed with clothes), carressed the cat as she was startled by the LIght so early in the morning and headed out to the gym for my 6am spinning class.

I am happy to say this gym in the morning thing is really working for me. I am starting to make friends in the locker room and it feels good to be up and going well before my colleagues. And well.....spinning class kicks ass!

You see, I am trying to kick my own ass. Its pretty good so far. I am motivated by photos I find in my travels to own all the pretty books i have very little time to read. I am a graphic designer by nature so i am drawn to well designed book covers and stories of wild women. I myself am a little wild but conservative. My husband thought it would be funny to compare me to Charlotte on sex and the city. I was definately flattered. This makes me feel good. Its good to know others think you are truly making progress. The more i struggle to feel comfortable with who i am the more i am driven to get more out of life. For me, fun is spinning class at the gym.
Fun is dressing up for fun events with my friends and family. Fun is enjoying life as it is meant to be enjoyed. Today is a wonderful day! envision yourself cool and fashionista!

Even though its raining outside today
Always know its always a sunny day in your thoughts.

We used to be at the gym when it opened at 5:30 (gasp!!). No more of that for me. But I do need some exercise. I guess I need to figure out how to fit Riley into my exercise regime.
