So this week I took some time off from blogging – and depending on how life goes this weekend, I may take some more off next week too. This post from Katy Widrick is why I will not say I’m sorry….
MCM Mama was looking for her muse this week, and so was I! She managed to de-clutter her house while looking for hers…. I need to try that next, all I’ve done is gone looking in craft bins and on book shelves.
Apparently, lots of us have taken little mini breaks recently… Callie at the WannaBe Athlete also has lost her mojo. She’s lost her baby weight, run 2 half marathons… so what’s next? I understand that – weight maintenance has been hard for lots of reasons. Fitness goals? Well, there’s a reason I’m doing a Half Ironman this year, it keeps me motivated!
Emily has lost her weight loss direction – but is OK with that! Sometimes that happens too – it took me 4 years to lose my 100+ pounds, not because I lost and gained a lot, but because 40 pounds into it, I just stopped for a while. When I was ready, I started again.
Slow down. Those two words sum up this lengthy post by yoga teacher Andrew Gurvey – how much of life do we miss because we are in too much of a hurry getting “there” to enjoy the journey? And just where is “there” anyway? Definitely thought provoking.
A few weeks ago I posted about Rebecca’s charity challenge for the Easter Weekend; this post is her wrap up of how she did for her challenge. I both cycled and ran that weekend, but Rebecca did all three – swim-bike-run! Good on you, girl!
I’m wrapping this up with a tough post about one man’s battle with cancer – I love reading Susan’s posts on No Meat Athlete, and the story of her friend Carlos has been heart breaking. Thanks for sharing an update, Susan!
Goals: I read, I did some crochet, I got my workouts in. A good week. I’m almost rested up!
1. Long bike
2. Long run
3. Visit family
