I have noticed a real difference in my mood and attitude on the days I get up early and workout. I think I need to make more of an effort to get up early and do some sort of light exercise on my days 'off'.
Yesterday was a big day for 'the situation'. I put my foot down and spoke up regardless of what the outcome would be. I knew that I needed to for my integrity. I was proud of myself for standing up for myself and acknowledging my right to have a voice and to stand for the right. I got angry and I yelled and, honestly, it felt good to feel those emotions and to express them without stuffing them. The look on DH's face scared me. It was one I hadn't seen before- just a look of contempt and hatred for me. He hardly said a word more to me before going to bed, but I felt at peace with myself nonetheless. He says today that he isn't mad at me anymore. I don't need to have him tell me that I was right and he was wrong (though that certainly would be nice) and I can go on even if he were still mad. I know that I did the right thing and it felt good to not back down for fear of confrontation for once- with the situation and with him.
