Nothing much has changed since the last time I blogged.
I have been working hard at striking a healthy balance with all the main part of my life:
- Family both husband and kids and the rest are the most important in my life and I try to make them come first.
- Work is both challenging, demanding and highly interesting. However I do have to make sure it doesn't eat up the other parts of my life.
- Me and myself which is mostly me working out and hobby tend to be the piece of the pie that gets squished.
I never thought I would say that especially since I tried Triathlon to escape running. Training with Lesley Paterson to get better at triathlon has made me love running. I am not a fast runner and I don't care I just go out with just my watch and enjoy myself.
I also make those outings social when I can sometimes I am the one chatting away sometimes I'm the one huffing and puffing sometimes I'm just alone in my head.
I have gotten on my road bike a few times and realized that I have missed riding a lot. Finally I'm trying to figure out how to get back on my mountain bike and enjoy it.
I started playing soccer in a pickup game at work. I have to say I always end up with a bruise or two but I'm having fun!
On the hobby front, I'm still trying to sew a bit now that my brain is a bit less taken by work.
Today was lazy sunday, woke up around 8:30, read in bed until 10am (yes we have two kids 8 and 6 that let us be lazy in bed with no TV on). We made breakfast then started smoking the ribs. I picked up knitting a bit while the kiddos were just playing in their rooms.
I finally tackled the Himalaya of laundry at the foot of our bed and cleaned up my shelves while the hubby went for his run.
When he cooled off we played a board game until it was my turn to go for a run with my friend.
Now I have to take a shower clean up the biohazard zone in my kitchen and get ready to share some ribs with our friends!
Have a good night.....
