Isn’t that a beautiful photo? I love everything about it. I love the quote, I love the image….everything. It’s how I feel lately. I may not be trekking through the woods in some foreign land as I’d rather be…but I know in time this will be the case. I am at this point in my life where I feel lost. I feel like I have been through some crazy hell that ended up being a blessing (in the most optimistic point of view) and here I am….lost….yet happy…and okay with not knowing the answers.
I know I am heading in the right direction even if I don’t see the finish line. I don’t write much lately. I never feel like I have much to say about fitness. I have started another blog on blogger hoping to just transition into another blog where I speak like this without having to resort to something healthy.
There is beauty in the unknown.
There is beauty in not having any attachments to anyone or anything like a relationship, child, or marriage, or an important job. I am at this place where I am going through the motions but I will change for the better….for good.
There is beauty in enriching true meaningful relationships with family and friends (the important loves)
There is beauty in dreaming of all the opportunities to come once I pass this difficult time.
There is beauty in being 70 days sober today:)
It’s weird. I stepped on the scale and I am still 111 pounds. I have never been able to happily sit at this weight for very long without being a dieting starving fiend! All I do is run 4 times a week, yoga as often as possible (when my tendonitis subsides), and most recently, I’ve gotten back into barre. I eat a lot…I just eat a lot more plant based food and only seafood if I need some animal protein. Other than that my diet has been very simple….
- Typically I wake up and either have oatmeal mixed with a scoop of Vega One all-in-one powder with berries, chia seeds and flaxseeds.
- Or I have a poached egg or two with avocado, arugula and mushrooms.
- For lunch I have a large spinach salad with other veggies and garbanzo beans or kidney beans.
- If I need a snack I have an apple with peanut butter or almond butter
- And for dinner I crave a lot of spaghetti squash with other veggies or a salad with salmon or a green smoothie…
Everything is along those lines. SIMPLE.
My workout is simple, my diet is simple, my friendships are simple, my family life is simple, and that’s where I’m at today. Trying to stay happy with the simple life. I have lived a hectic whirlwind of a life through the last 7 years…I am not missing out on a thing. This is where I belong. When life is simple, you can accept things as they are, you can be prepared when they’re difficult, and you can stay present without attachment to what you believe life should be like. Happy Sunday:)
Here are a few pictures from lately:
