4.26 • Change of plans. Unable to sleep for 5 hours after finally getting to bed earlier in hopes that my morning would have a better, earlier start. Change of plans. Body crashes after my shower despite thinking I was still mostly on track for the day. Change of plans. Requiring lunch and more rest before I’m finally functional for the day... after 2 PM. Change of plans. Knowing it unwise in my current situation to risk leaving the house for a restaurant and groceries. Change of plans. Too late in the day to order for grocery pick-up and no access to the right card to order carry-out dinner. Change of plans again. Can’t get one component of my dinner in time. Change of plans. Body gives me fits with deeper bouts of dizziness and slowed function which drastically delays my bedtime routine. Change of plans. And a dozen other little interruptions and snafus that hindered work and tasks so that only... well... one thing really got done today as planned... so I sat down for my nightly detox foot soak and I slowly penned this needed reminder. Because with my still-not-predictable body and health, there’s almost always a change of plans. And I just need to keep breathing through it... #breathe365#breathe2018#intentionalliving#lymewarrior#multiplechemicalsensitivity#daygoneawry#changeofplans#blessedaretheflexible#reminder
MY biggest reason for getting outside and breaking a sweat? to DE-STRESS.
I'm a constant ball of nerves, wheels in my head always turning, worrying about things that aren't in my control, taking things too personally, hanging onto frustrations that really probably won't matter in a few years.....
frequently having to step back to get out of my own head...💆♀️ >>>>cue song 🎶#Eagles <<<< "Take it easy, Take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels
drive you crazy
lighten up while you still can"....
Too many days have been wasted being in bad moods, focusing on the "what ifs" and in turn I end up feeling even more frustrated that I let a perfectly good day get away like that. •
I'm the best version of me when I've breathed in some fresh air and sweated out those negative emotions. Try it with me! 🙂

Why was this so hard?! Subconsciously we challenge ourselves by going heavier and longer .. no challenge no change .. although I constantly question myself about whether I am getting better. Goals can take a while to achieve but being consistent and persistent can get you there. I hang around my PT and gym like a bad smell .. but when you are on a good thing you stick to it (sorry Ry @bodybyryhan) Can’t get enough .. but today I am dead! Lol #changeofplans#1000 +Cals #challenge#change#goals#persistence#consistency#gymislife#pullupsiwillgetyouoneday 💪 Credits: @lschymitzek

Today was a whole new level for me. Today I experienced my first DNS. I had never had to make this choice before. It was so unbelievably hard to do. Over the last few weeks I have been fighting some foot pain. That foot pain hit a new level this weekend. Early in the week I fought the urge to race this weekend. I had a marathon on my radar. That marathon I will not be participating in now. I saw a specialist this weekend that gave me his opinion that I am strangely listening to. A couple weeks off of running. 😬. This also puts my 50 miler in jeopardy. I may have to drop down to the marathon for that race 😞. A friend told me to think about the long game. That would be the 100 miler in September. As much as this sucks right now it will all be better once I get that 100 mile finish.
It’s been one of those days! Who can relate? You have all these plans to get stuff done but then life happens and your along for the ride! I will say, I got a lot done but not necessarily the “stuff “ I planned to do❤️ When your kiddos tells you they don’t feel good with the yucky symptoms that you need to watch for, you head to the dr. Wjich any mom knows, completely throws your well planned day into a tail spin🤪 Oh well! We roll, we swerve, we juggle and jiggle... because we need to lose those 5 extra pounds from vegas😬 Oh well, I wouldn’t have it any other way👊🏼 So here’s to you parents that roll with it and survive!
All the tests have come back. Heart is fine. The ol’ ticker still has some fight left in it. My stomach though...that’s messed up. No more fats, chocolate, and caffeine for me for a while. Not that it’s a bad thing! A change in diet will definitely help as I try to fix my stomach. The peace of mind that my heart is not the issue is worth the trip to the ER. They were very kind and understanding at Methodist Southlake; I highly recommend! #acidreflux#changeofplans#changeofdiet#emergencyroom#hospitalgown
Yesterday I said goodbye to Pottuvil, Arugam bay. I absolutely loved it there, so much so that I stayed four extra nights and knocked Mirisa and Adams peak off of the intinary 🙈
I couldn't ask for a better time at the point, surfing (trying to), sunshine, sunsets, roaming elephants, turquoise ocean, and being fed amazing food by this gentleman, Mohamed. He runs a small cafe serving the best black ginger tea ever, with coconut roti to die for, shrimp bbq caught fresh from the lagoon and views from the cafe that ensure you never leave. I ate breakfast lunch and dinner here the entire time. Mohamed even treated us to a lagoon safari. His son, Uhbaid is a wonderful guy, and an awesome surfer, if you are ever in Arugam, head to Keyo bay, Pottuvil point, this time of year it is quiet and the waves are lush, get down to Muhamed's, grab a tea, safari and surf lesson, you wont be disappointed!
I will miss the family I have gained, and feel blessed to have met them 😍 It is a small family business and any visit helps them live a better life after the traumatic time that was the Tsunami 14 years ago.
Find out for yourself and go where lonely planet doesnt mention.
Our butterfly emerged from his chrysalis! Our original plans got scrapped in favor of everything monarchs. Reading a magazine article on their lifecycle, completing a nature journal entry, researching answers to our questions, reciting caterpillar & butterfly poems, and of course protecting it from birds.
Well, no barrel race tonight. Darn weather, but it's for the best anyway. Boon is still a little more sore than I thought he initially was so it will be good for me not to push him. Plus my new helmet doesn't quite fit right so I'm returning it and ordering one of Fallon's new line; pushing myself to get out of my simple black comfort zone lol. Anyone ready for this "spring" weather to turn more into summer weather??
