1. So, this week I started Tracy Anderson's 30 Day Method - its essentially 1 1/2 hours a day of workouts (7 days a week) and clean & healthy eating for 30 days. I'm giving it a GO! So far so good. In hindsight though, I'm not sure October is the smartest month to do this with the plethora of Halloween Candy EVERYWHERE. BE strong Jenny. Be strong. :) Anyway, I'm not following her 30 day bootcamp to a tee (I still like to run a few times a week, I might go on a few bike rides and Wednesday nights I am not cooking up some complicated braised red snapper recipe. One because I'm not a huge fish fan and 2) we get home late those evenings and its just not going to happen). But, my goal is to MOVE each day this month. To work it. Like I WAS doing during the winter with p90x. MOVE IT GIRL.
2. I'm thankful for date night tonight. We both agree we need it. I've been a bit crabby all week and I'm not sure why. Probably just tired from these workouts and NO CHOCOLATE or WINE. I guess that would make anyone crabby, no? Oh lord, does #1 above mean I can't have wine on our date night? I might be a cheap date tonight. Anyway, we are hitting up the new ZIP LINE in town for our date night followed up by dinner. Adventurous, no? I of course would be happy browsing a bookstore, eating sushi and lounging around the coffee shop apres dinner but, I did marry Mr. Adventure. That's how we ROLL folks.
3. Been thinking a lot about this little tidbit from Kris Carr's weekly Love List... "I am grateful for friends who honor my boundaries and give me space to grow and heal and love and fall and disappoint and love and be. Folks who demand too much of my energy get phased out. I send them love but don’t return the emails." I feel like I am also in the process of phasing some people out...mostly people with negative energy but also people that don't understand that when I have ONE HOUR free a day I prefer to be myself or with my darling family. At first I thought I was maybe being mean, but no, what I am doing is honoring MYSELF.
PS - Where did September go?
Over + Out my friends. Have a great weekend!
