This morning, I woke up at 4:30 and gave my baby her bottle. Then I tried a new workout class at 5:45. The class was held outside and consisted of four minutes of running and three minutes of strength training. It was challenging, but I was able to complete all six rounds. I think I’ve done about five or six classes with this new gym, and I have the feeling it’s going to stick this time.
After working out, I stopped by Starbucks for a decaf cappuccino. I love Starbucks early in the morning: People on their way home from the gym or going to work, the lines not crazy yet. And I love being on the road before the sun comes up, while the roads are mostly empty. It’s a rare experience in a large metropolitan area, to not be in traffic.
When I got home, I took a quick shower, tidied up my bedroom and played with my baby for 30 minutes or so. She was smiling a lot, and her skin was rosy and dewy. She seemed really happy and calm. I read her a book, and she was interested. I know she has no idea what I’m saying, but she’s able to sit and look at the pictures now.
