friday / 7:03 am

i've been doing a workout almost every night this week and i am amazed at how easily the body is forced to adapt to what you are forcing onto it. i technically have been doing this for almost 2 weeks but I took a 2-day break between workouts, and when i picked it back up on sunday, it was like i was starting over. my stamina, endurance, muscle memory was all gone. and i guess doing these morning pages is like that too - it's a mental muscle i am exercising and the whole waking up earlier is getting easier. 

i'm starting up my personal portrait project again - i'm shooting and interviewing whitney this weekend. i need this more than ever. i feel like i've been talking about it for so long, and slowly working on it, but i've never been able to do a complete project yet. and i guess you can call this one on-going, but i'd like for it to be much further along. 

i think i'm taking today for granted. i'm choosing to go into work instead of using my free day to myself because of all of the work that needs to be done is overwhelming. but i promise myself this: i am giving an entire day to myself this weekend, all to myself... and i'm not going to feel guilty about it either.
