As you know, we have been on a major break with our site. The sisters and I have experienced a lot of loss this past season and it has been a very difficult time. It has caused us to re-evaluate ourselves and our motives. I just couldn't in good conscience post during this time. And sadly, we found ourselves not living a whole existence. Sure, we were "going through the motions" with good works but our heart was somewhere else.
We have been working on an overhaul of the site for quite sometime but with Freeing Sisyphus moving across the country and starting a new role at her job, there has been little time. Not to mention, I myself, as I stated previously was just in a dark place. There were moments of light but in the end, it came down to a term that's pretty cheesy but true: "stinkin thinkin"
I found myself very ungrateful for everything around me-my friends, family, career, etc. I was taking everything for granted and not living in a thankful state. Through a series of unfortunate events, my eyes were opened and I am now trying to live in the present and be focused on a grateful heart everyday. I am ashamed of my past attitude and honestly was missing out on life because of it.
A light switch has been turned on and I can see again.
We all have times in our lives that are dark and scary, but it certainly is not an excuse to be unappreciative and bitter.
We will continue to work on our site and more importantly our lives for that matter, but until then, I thought I would share some of our recent activities. Bootcamp has continued to grow and I am more than blessed to be able to share my life and what little I know about exercise with my community.
We are embarking on a weight loss journey through WW with some friends. More than losing weight, it is taking accountability for what we are putting in our bodies. And most of all, it is only a representation of the "cleaning house" that is going on in our lives.
We continue to workout and now that 1/2 marathon training has started, I rarely get a rest day. But, its okay because sweating once a day, is crucial to my well being.
I thought I would share some not so life changing or important photos in an effort not to glorify myself but to inspire others to make small changes-take baby steps towards a healthier, happier you. (These are pics of the last few months)
And since we are under the Daily Sweat tab, I will share my workouts for the week.
Monday: Run 4 miles (10:48 pace)
Tuesday: Kickboxing and teach Pilates
Wednesday: Run 4 miles (10:38 pace)
Thursday: Plyometrics, Hot Vinyasa Yoga and run 4 miles with training group (10:30 pace)
Saturday: rest day
Sunday: Run 5 miles and teach bootcamp
What small changes have you made so far in 2012?
