Happy Fall! Things have been moving fast over here and I have lots of fun running updates coming soon. While I fell off posting about all my training and hard work for the Hamptons half marathon, I swear it did get done! That weekend changed my life..but more to come on that soon.
I have been going through a lot of changes recently, at work mostly, but at home too… trying to adjust to a busier schedule all while keeping up with things that make me happy (see pics below). One thing I have been learning to appreciate is the highs and lows of what motivates me. Right now I am still super motivated to stick to my workout schedule which I am thrilled about because usually that is the first thing to go when I am stressed. I am not so motivated to cook, clean, or even write. Writing is an outlet for me so this one is tough on my mind. I have realized that forcing myself to do things when I am not motivated to extremely affects the outcome and quality of why I do them in the first place, especially when it comes to writing (a girl’s still gotta eat). I would rather take some time to stare up at clouds through the trees and find inspiration in nature, so that when I am ready, my whole heart is ready.
In the meantime, I am grateful. I am grateful for the wonderful season of fall and all the colors and change it brings. I am thankful for Tom and my family and friends and the strength of their support I feel on a daily basis. I am thankful to have little miss Lucy to chase around and watch grow. I am pretty lucky, I must say. I have chosen positivity and happiness through all the change and I can tell you, it feels good.
Exciting things are to come, I can feel it! Until next time..
