The week that was - feb 2-8

I realized I missed these weekly recap posts. They keep me attentive to taking photos. And they are also super fun to look back on.  

I am loving 10K training. I feel accomplished. I am tired at the end of each interval, but I am recovering very well. I feel like I could keep running more intervals. Super fun. Also? I can't read a schedule and I'm a month ahead of where I need to be. Part of me is excited about the cushion to miss runs, but a bigger part of me is excited that I'll be even more prepared.

I didn't spend as much time on my mat as I wanted to this week. I wasn't avoiding, I was just distracted. Studying. Spending time with friends. Working on a new website. (!!!) Coaching work. Just distracted. I miss this. I want to be better this week.

Nothing has changed with my stress level. I have no answers. But I've got peace. I don't know how to explain it. Except I know everything will be okay.

I am in the middle of this lovely piece of work. I'm presenting a workshop at a local library in April about personal transformation as inspired by Wild. I'm looking forward to speaking about how we can search for - and find - transformation right in our lives as we are living them. I'm super excited.


Did I mention that I've been studying a ton? I love my flashcards, but some of my illustrations are terrible. Eagle is beautiful compared to chair and happy baby. I'm not showing those. They look obscene.


I don't know if you can find these, but I'm loving these snacks. LOVING.


I know the picture is grainy, but pubs are dark. I adore my husband, and especially when he is in his element. I never thought I'd be married to an Irish Step Dancer.

I hadn't straightened my hair in months, so I had no idea what was going on with the length. I'm well on my way to my goal of having a kick-ass braid by 40. I may even be there by 38.

We have decided to start purging stuff. There is just too much. I started with the spare bedroom because I am going to move my office up here. This is what came out of the closet. Not pictured is the contents of a desk and cleaning the linen closet. Herschel Cat was a great supervisor.


We spent Saturday night at an amazing party with the dancing crew. Including a dance around a bonfire. Super fun. To see a stop-motion progression of the dance, click here.


I hope you all had a great week!
