tiptoing back?

It's been almost 6 weeks since I've written. Why? I don't really know. But since I write only at the intersection of a) having something to say and b) having the time to say it, I guess those two haven't crossed paths in a while.

So what's going on? Let's cover life by area:

Family: Tim and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in Sausalito. It was fantastic! We ate and hiked and watched football and sat in front of the fire. I was ready to go back the day we got home! Kids are doing good. They both need transportation a lot, but that's going to change when Austin gets his license in December.

Friends: I have the best friends in the whole wide world!

Training clients: I can't tell you how much I enjoy my clients. It's a privilege to be in these women's lives and I feel really lucky to do what I do!

Training myself: Tim and I are in week 2 of P90X, which means I'm sore a lot. :) I missed a workout yesterday so today I did both Plyometrics and Shoulders and Arms. I've been running about 20 miles or so a week, and am starting to get back into liking running, which is quite a relief. I always took my love of running for granted, but I won't do that any more!

Faith: Me and God are good, but I'm trying to understand a confusing issue. I'm trusting that it will be resolved, and in the meantime I'm praying for God's will to happen, and that I would know what the next right thing is for me to do.

Dinnertime: I've been cooking on a fairly consistent basis and it seems to be working out well. One thing that's helped is that I'm not vegetarian anymore. Turns out it's tough to be enthusiastic about cooking something that you choose not to eat. So now I'm cooking AND eating and enjoying. :) I'm going to start updating my second blog "Saving Dinnertime" with quick notes about what I make for dinner and where the recipe came from. For instance, last night I made Roasted Chicken and Carrots with Olives and Lemon from the November 2009 issue of Real Simple (page 314). It was wonderful!

That's it for now. I can't promise how often I'll write, or even if I'm going to write again for that matter. But I think I'm back to writing. I do appreciate having a place to say stuff and I REALLY appreciate that anyone takes a minute out of their day to read it!

Love the fact that you are enjoying eating agian...and with all those kick-butt cardio workouts I hope you are eating a lot now.

Happy 20th and may you have many, many more :)

The main thing is you do what feels most comfortable for you.

You have to feel most at home in your own mind and body. That's what matters most.

Whatever you decide or feel like doing, GOOD LUCK, because you deserve the best.

Chin up, keep smiling and best wishes.

Welcome back! Glad to hear all is well. I don't believe, however, that I seen the word kettlebell in there anywhere.....I hope you haven't given up the best gym you could possibly have!?
