Well hello. If you’re reading this you’ve either had my blog sitting dusty in some remote corner of your reader, or, you continued to occasionally check in to see if I would ever surface again. Either way, I am duly impressed and incredibly happy that you’re here.
I’m not sure what caused me to just drop off the blogosphere (see what I attempted to do there? I’ll shake the rust off of my clever wordplay slowly…). I think I felt like the blog was getting tired and my inspiration was waning. I was enjoying life in the moment and felt like I could use the break, I suppose.
Lately, though, I’ve been feeling a little flat. I think its probably my pre-disposition to planning, executing, repeating, repeating, repeating, that has got me feeling…uninspired. I think I’m going to use this little spot on the interwebs as a way to bring back some creativity. I used to take multiple pictures a day (albeit most times of food) and I can’t remember the last time I dusted off my point and shoot.
So, I’m back for today. I definitely won’t be posting daily food journals. Probably more like the occasional check in when I have a great workout or a great meal or just a great anecdote or picture to share. I hope that you’ll stick around to find out how it goes (I’m just as interested to see!).
In the meantime, want some bullets about just what has been going on? Ok? Ok.
- Vegetarian gone wild. For probably the past 6 months, I’ve been enjoying the occasional piece of chicken, turkey sandwich and just last week a piece of filet mignon. After a long time of feeling exhausted and run down and low energy, I decided to bring meat back in to my diet. I feel so much better. So there’s that.
- Hopelessly smitten. I’m in a pretty amazing relationship with my best friend. He’s unbelievably supportive and sweet and he knows me better than I sometimes know myself. I feel quite lucky to be his lady. :)
- Workin’ the ladder. This isn’t dirty, I promise. I’ve been really busy at work and I feel like I’m definitely succeeding in building a career. Some days I feel hopelessly lost and without answers but I’m realizing that it only means that I’m stepping out and taking chances and stretching myself personally and professionally.
- Cutting myself some slack. I’m working everyday to be more forgiving of myself and my faults (some of which I’m realizing aren’t faults at all). Its so easy to be hard on ourselves, isn’t it? But life is short and its just not worth it to be uncomfortable in your own skin. Am I right?
I feel like I could go on and on but I’ll leave it at this. Feels good to be back.
Oh, and, how about a picture of the best green curry tofu ever? For old times’ sake.
