Went MIA

Monday, July 29, 2013

I had a little crisis of commitment over the weekend. I'm not sure what brought it on. I think maybe I was overwhelmed by BLC over the past couple of weeks. I'd been really focused and, well, that broke on Thursday.

Again, I'm not sure why. Maybe I just needed a few days technology-free, but I also didn't do the challenge requirements "offline."

I'm not depressed or anything. It's a little weird, actually. It's not even the kind of thing where I can say I feel "better" today, or "rejuvenated" because I didn't feel bad. But I am back.

I went grocery shopping yesterday and bought some good stuff. Made slow cooker taco soup, one of my favorites, yesterday and tried overnight oats this morning for breakfast.

I brought my workout clothes with me to work so I can go for a walk at the end of the day.

I'm sorry for letting my team down in terms of my lack of TNT and WEC points, but I had to do what I needed for me.

    Slow cooker taco soup?? Sounds great - if you could share the recipe by email that would be great!

Love having you back!

    We all need a break sometimes, and I'm glad you feel revived!

    I just looked through the can do it, good job, awesome...I read back and the thing is you said "I didn't feel bad." You did what you needed to do when you needed to do it for the reasons you needed to do it for YOU. That time doing what you did and when you did it for the reasons you did them is in the past. POOF. New month starts now and you are back. emoticon You signed up for a challenge and it IS challenging to commit to something for twelve weeks or three months. It gets long and some people do walk away - disappear. Thank you for not disappearing because you have team mates and spark friends that would miss you and that is a terrible feeling to have someone just go missing. People here in the BLC are NOT just faceless numbers. You matter. It is noticed when you go away. And not because of letting your team down. That is a secondary affect to your going missing. In 8 weeks of this challenge, you have become part of the team and people notice and care when you are absent. THAT is what matters. See you in the den or how about coming and taking a walk on the beaches of Azure Destinations for a break? emoticon

    We all need some tech free time. Hope you are feeling like yourself again.

    It takes time to change habits...and it takes even more time to snap new ones in the old habits' places, so be kind to yourself while you make this transition. It can be a difficult - though not at all impossible - one. emoticon

    I know how it is -- sometimes I need a break or I begin to feel OCD! Consider it a mental health holiday.
