It's been a second and I apologize for people who were ready to jump aboard on my blog posts. Sometimes, life gets in the way and it's hard to prioritize what needs to get done. I think I do a good job in putting life in order, which is why the blog had a two-week siesta.
My busiest season is most obviously the summer! All the events and programs I do mainly come together in the months between April and September. However, I have managed to have a busy winter! I've tried new work opportunities, while gearing up for the upcoming summer.
I've changed up my diet a bit, adding more protein and more greens. Granted, I've always eaten rather healthily (not a word, but let's let 'healthily' slide), although I'm sticking to getting rid of the few frozen meals I'd supplement my week with. My workout didn't need adjustment, but I needed to include more protein in my diet. As a vegetarian weight-lifter, it was clear that I was lacking a chunk of protein input!
I'm not a hoarder, but I have a bit of clutter in my clothes, books and knick-knacks, and I've slowly been getting rid of the excess. I read an excellent book (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo) which really cut things into perspective. I've gotten rid of three large bags of clothes, cutting my closet to half. I felt a lot of joy getting rid of clothes I was holding onto till the end of time (as if I was going to wear a medium-sized Slurpee bear t-shirt).
I haven't yet touched the hundreds of books in my library. Mainly because I know that's going to be a bit more painful. But I know what I have to do...but yikes, it's going to be tough.
I'm also in the process of (potentially) moving to the west side. I say potentially because I'm super indecisive and never know what I want (typically Libra here!). But you know what, like I scream a hundred times a day, I'm going to live life day by day.
Okay, that's enough 'look at me'. Aiming to post a bit more regularly, no worries.
I keep saying "I write" but don't share anything. So here we go, let's share.
