I know that it a bit cryptic considering I am not going to go into to much detail. At least not yet. All I will say is that my life is about to change dramatically. I have a climb ahead of me and I am excited and scared, but it all for the best.
I wanted to just take this time to say thank you to all the people online who have been so supportive since I started this blog. Everyone has been overwhelmingly kind and I appreciate it more then you know. It is because of this support I have decided to make this change. Don’t worry, I am not going anywhere, just feeling the urge to show some love.
How’s that for a cliff hanger? On to the update . . .
The Healthy Writers Club
Shallee McArthur started The Healthy Writers Club; How to Push Your Writing (and Exercise) to the Next Level. I am sure my butt has expanded since I’ve been spending so much additional time sitting in front of a computer this year. And, given the option of writing early in the morning or exercising early in the morning, I have been picking sleep every time. (Yeah, you knew that was coming) I thought I was a great idea to record my workouts and find some like minded bloggers as well.
October 1 – 7, 2012:
Cardio: 3x – 60 min sessions
Strength Training: 2x – 20 min sessions
Stretching: 3x – 15 min sessions
Not a bad week.
I, along with 300,000 other people are in the midst of pre Nanowrimo anxiety and I hope everyone is preparing and ready to go on November 1st. I have been back and forth about whether or not I was going to do Nano. I love the concept, but not as happy with the quality of work I put out during these challenges. I will write more about this later, but it was one of my goals at the beginning of the year to participate in Junowrimo, August Campnano and Nanowrimio. So, I am going to do it because it has been a pretty awesome goal achieving year for me and I don’t want to stop now.
To assist my fellow writer, here are a few post that might help with your prep:
“If you think about being as healthy as you possible can, there is no way you’re not going to look like a million bucks.”
This quote is from either Beyonce or her trainer, it wasn’t quite clear in the article. Beyonce is one of my female image idols. I like her look and how it has changed over the years. I like that she is curvy and fit and takes fashion risks. I don’t necessary like her personality, I don’t know here, but I like what I see.
My other image idols:
Catherine Zeta Jones
The late and great Aaliyah
These women all seems to be criticized for their bodies, but they embrace their body and their body image. They all don’t look like traditional images of what is expected of them. They look good.
To all the great ladies and their great self images. We can all strive to be like them in that respect.
