I went to yoga and pilates this week. I am sooooooooooooo glad that I have a week off coming up. I am going to take full advantage of that fact! Headed down to Baltimore on Tuesday and coming back Friday. It’s going to be a perfect trip. A couple days with B, a couple days with Family and a couple days with just lil’ ole me!
I have been spending a lot of time with someone special lately. Unlike what I usually do, I have been firmly in the present with her. Not concerned about what could be – just enjoying my time with her while I have it.
A friend asked me if things were official yet, and I am not quite ready. I’m actually quite scared.
I sent Jamie a picture of this starfish. It’s broken. It does make me tear up though. I think because it’s just broken forever. If it were alive, it could repair itself. But, since it’s dead, it’s just broken. Some how between this week and last, someone broke it and now it can’t be fixed. Because someone was careless, nobody else can enjoy the whole starfish again. I am reminded of how fragile we all are in this life. There’s just something inherently sad about that to me.
I had a bit of a rough week as far as sugar consumption. I felt that it was out of control. It was not a great week when it came to that. In terms of building strength, I did a decent job but I am not sure if I could do more. I struggle to figure out when to push and when to let happen. There is such a fine line between patience and laziness and I don’t know what side of it I am on when it comes to this phase of my fitness journey. I don’t want to struggle my entire life with weight. It’s like I just want to arrive at that destination and be done. But maybe that’s not how life works…perhaps even for elite athletes that isn’t how it works.
I just said to a friend that will power can only take you so far. There’s only so much of it that you can have.
