I don't blog much.
I have great ideas for blogs quite frequently. My wisdoms are all formulated in my head, but they never make it to paper.
I'm so hung up on having something relevant to say, relevant to SparkPeople, but maybe I'll just babble a little bit instead.
What's relevant to SparkPeople anyway? What we eat, how we exercise? Yes and no. Actually SparkPeople is much more than food and exercise. Our lives are related to SparkPeople. We probably all came here to lose weight and then discovered that it's about so much more. How we feel, how we act, how food makes us feel, our energy levels, our relationships, our happiness levels, how we feel in our own skin, what we do on a daily basis to achieve our goals, to live the life we want to live.
Today is summer solstice, the longest day of the year. It's just past 9 pm and it's starting to get dark. We're in the South, So if you're further north it will be light much longer. Summer solstice makes me sad. Though it marks the beginning of summer, and the hot humid months of July, August, and September are still ahead, it also means that days are beginning to get shorter. I live for sunshine and warm temperatures.
It's been a busy year for me. My job has me traveling.
This year, so far, I've been to Detroit and Philly (twice), Hartford CT (3 times), Houston, Miami, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh. It's all work and not a lot of play though. Airport, office, hotel, and back home. I do enjoy those trips nonetheless. They're each between 2 and 5 days and never on weekends.
I've been viewing my world from above 30,000 feet through an airplane window a lot.
Here is one of my favorites - sunset on my way to Detroit.
I'm off to Phoenix on Monday. Funny thing - all winter they've been sending me up and down the East Coast and to the Midwest. I learned what a snow squall is, and I had to buy a serious winter coat. Now Phoenix at the end of June! Probably the only place where it's hotter than here. I'll be taking my bathing suit :).
Do I have the perfect swim suit body? No! Are you kidding me?!? I could absolutely stand to lose a couple of pounds, and my thighs will NEVER be swim suit ready. But hey, who cares? Life needs to be lived to the fullest. Every beautiful moment of it!
Enjoy life and keep sparking!
