7:00 am: Stretch arms up and out while getting dressed. Oooh, surprisingly not feeling last evening’s workout in the abs. Legs not sore either! Yay!
7:01 am: Why are my legs, arms, and abs not sore? They should be sore. I actually tried to do all the exercises right and I’m out of shape so everything should be sore. WHY AM I NOT FEELING SORE?
7:02 am: You know what, it’s ok. This is good. I’m far too busy today to deal with being sore and uncomfortable. It’s fine. I’ll try harder next time.
8:10 am: Ok, off to creche with the toddler in the stroller. Thank god it’s not raining.

8:25 am: Wow, do you hear that? That is the sound of no crying. That is the sound of me going to work to do adult things that don’t involve any crying. Usually.
8:40 am – Change into work clothes and sit down at my desk. Stretch again. This is nice. The calm before the storm. I like this. Feel all grown up and like I can accomplish things.
8:42 am: Get up from my chair
8:42:05 am: OH GOD I CAN FEEL IT NOW MY ARMS ARE SORE MY LEGS ARE SORE EVERYTHING’S SORE!!!!!!!!!
