Thanks to all of you who have visited and checked up on me despite me not being around much. It's been very comforting. I'm overwhelmed, mostly by work but it's makng everything else seem overwhelming. I have a big community organizing project that's weighing heavy on my mind but can't get to it because I keep having to compromise with my accounting department and remind them that people's crises are a priority over their paperwork non-crises. Right?! Good grief!
My high impact interval class is a lifestyle adjustment too . It's only twice a week but it takes mental and nutritional preparation all week long. I love it a lot though, because it's keeping me focused on making sure I'm in good shape on all levels. When you do something that intense, you just have to! It feels really great to be challenging myself and getting everything all working together. And I love that the others in the class are competitive in a very supportive way. I didn't think I was competitive against anybody but myself, but when I held plank 2 minutes longer than Mr. Crossfit Trainer yesterday, I had to keep myself from being obnixious and arrogant the rest of the day.
My wheat and animal free eating is still going very well. I know - I'm as surprised as you are! I have thought bubbles with cheeseburgers in them occasionally, but then I think about how heavy it'll feel when I'm jumping around trying to work it off. I'd rather stick with my bird food (nuts and seeds) and beans.
So my presence will be sporadic but please know that you're all in my thought bubbles a lot more often than cheeseburgers!
