Anyway, lots to talk about today. Spring Cleaning is on the brain for a lot of us, but I’d like to FOCUS on a different kind of Spring Cleaning. How about spring cleaning ourselves? No no, you won’t need Pine-Sol or bleach for that (least I hope not!).
I’m talking about all this “stuff” we hold onto and don’t want to let go of. All things we say we want to do but don’t. All things we want to be, but say we can’t. GET RID OF IT!!! Frankly, I am fed up with carrying it around. So here goes…..one, two, three LET GO!
This week, I’m going to focusing on just that. Spring Cleaning my body, mind, and soul!
First up….Spontaneity. I
I gave it a whirl this weekend.
- I changed my schedule up this week. In fact, it was last minute scheduling. But good thing it was because it allowed me to meet two lovely Bloggers!
I met up with the beautiful Jess for a bright and early run at Town Lake Trail. I just love this woman! So down to earth and genuine. We chatted the whole way and enjoyed every mile! Next time we’ll actually take pictures of ourselves! haha.
And the second meet up was with the kind hearted and fun loving Christin! What better place to meet than the FARMERS MARKET?!
I’m a sucker for locally grown strawberries! Just see for yourself.
We laughed and talked the whole time. Trying out new foods and making jokes. Christin is a genius in the kitchen and she spoiled me with her gluten free muffins and kale chips.
- I changed my GOAL race that I was training for and instead ran a local 30K, last minute!
It was freeing! I didn’t even get timed. I allowed myself to enjoy the run, no set pace, no goal time, just run for fun and be proud of the training that went into it.I even tried out new fuel (you should actually never do this if you are really going to race, just FYI), but it worked for me!
p.s. – I now have a new obsession with sharkies!p.p.s I have a new training partner. She’s my favorite type of BIRD!
- And lastly, I spontaneously played in the kitchen…..at midnight……with random ingredients. When I say random, I mean random!
Don’t judge, late night snacks are the best! And no, that’s not a look of disgust but rather a chewy nutty goodness.
Good Gut GF Brownies. Want the recipe? I think you’ll have to wait for the next post when I talk about Spring Cleaning our bodies (aka guts and livers).
So, are you on board? Is this your kind of Spring Cleaning?
