The other morning as I was in my usual frantic “zone” of getting myself ready for work and my two kids fed, dressed and out the door for school, my five-year-old asked me very matter-of-factly: “Mummy – do you think this is what you look like when you’re asking us not to bug you?” And he pointed to a picture in his latest favourite book:
Big self-confidence boost to start my day. I think I may have actually put on makeup (a rare occurrence) right after that.
It also made me wonder how else I might appear at different times.
I’m pretty sure this is what my sister and I look like to each other when we meet for our weekly 5 a.m. speed workouts.
(sometimes our eyes aren’t even that wide open)
This is our first interval.
This is our last.
Quite a transformation takes place in 45 minutes.
This is us after the workout.
And this is us all day from having done intervals at 5 a.m.
That is all. In future, when asking my children “not to bug me” (I’m not sure I really said that, but that’s what he heard so judge away) I will take a deep breath and channel this.
