Smonday Melange!

  • I'm fasting today with Tim, who's having a medical test done tomorrow that requires fasting. He seems to find it more difficult than I do. I think that's cuz I have way more stored energy in my thighs. :) See, there's an upside to everything, right?
  • Last week I ran 32 miles and it was FUN! It's scary when your fitness mojo leaves, and that's where I've been for quite some time. Last weekend a friend suggested I pray about it. I did, and the next day I felt different about being active. What a relief and a joy it is to enjoy moving again!
  • I'm tentatively putting together a schedule for myself that starts tomorrow, as the kids start back to school tomorrow, and that means my life has more predictability to it. So I'm thinking about blogging 3 times per week, continuing to run and do kettlebells, and ... and ... well, I'll need to put some thought into some other things.
  • ONCE AGAIN I discovered that taking an anti-depressant is a good thing for me. Last week I missed one day, and then decided to cut my dosage in half for two days. And then I couldn't figure out why I had my own personal rain cloud following me around. I feel stupid even typing this, but the truth is that it takes what it takes for us to learn, right?
  • Is anyone else excited that a new So You Think You Can Dance? is starting this fall? I can't wait!!!
  • If you don't have a bird feeder, I highly recommend getting one. I picked mine up at Target and fill it about once a week. Having beautiful birds come to my yard makes me feel like a good person, in the same way it's nice if dogs and people like you, you know?
Happy Smonday everyone!

Yes, I'm very excited that SYTYCD is coming back so soon, though I wonder if it's too soon. That show has been a summer ritual for our family for five years. Hate that I'll now be watching it alone in the fall.

Aren't you nice to fast with hubby. When Rob has to fast, I don't eat in front of him, but then he goes to bed early and I will snack if wanted ;)

I love that show, but it's always been a summer show...for us it's way to soon!

Have you tried cutting your anit pill in half and taking that daily?? Just a thought.

Have a terrific week!!

I late to the SYTYCD bandwagon -- saw some episodes for the first time this summer. It was very fun to watch so I hope I can see more this fall.

No, on, don't feel stupid for typing what you did, feel proud of yourself.

One of the hardest things is to say something like that. It's hard because you're saying, this is me as well. This is the other side to me. It might not be ideal, but it is what it is.

There's no shame in admitting, you are sometimes a person who needs to take that course of action.

It's not like you're taking the P D's, in regular daily doses, 365 days a year, because you've become pychologically dependant on them all the time, you're just someone that occasionally has a purple patch, and in your own way, it's just a slightly different way of being human.

As far as I'm concerned your little quirks and anomelies, will never change the real person inside.

You'll always be solid gold whatever happens.

You're brilliantly unique, and that's a really, really good thing.

GOOD LUCK with your upcoming goals / plans and wants. I'm sure you'll be fine. You're a very adaptable person.

Take care and best wishes.
