Thank goodness it is the weekend! Friday is definitely my favorite day of the work week but I really love Saturdays. There is something about knowing that I don’t have to wake up early and go into the office. I can do whatever I want to (within reason) on a Saturday. This past week has been an absolute whirlwind. The events of Sunday have completely affected my thoughts. I have been trying my hardest to stay focused on work when I am in the office but somehow my mind keeps wandering. The most stressful part is the feeling that I keep having about needing to know all of the answers to everyone’s questions. Poor Pete is having to deal with my excessive stress and it hasn’t even been a week since he proposed.
Enough about all of that stuff. I am in need of some fun and conversation that has absolutely nothing to do with wedding stuff. Let’s go grab a coffee and enjoy our weekly coffee date. Even though the summer is in full swing, I am still drinking my favorite beverage, a grande brewed dark roast coffee with just a touch of soy milk. Yum! What is your favorite drink to enjoy in the summer months?
On Monday, I will be starting my official marathon training plan I am really excited with what Krissy has come up with and I think it will help me stay on track without feeling overwhelmed. That feeling of being overwhelmed has always been one of my biggest issues with many training plans. I find one that I think I can stick to and then something happens or my anxiety kicks in. My third marathon is going to be different. With my training plan in hand, I am actually starting to feel pretty good about the Space Coast Marathon and the Dopey Challenge. I am ready to start moving towards some of the goals that I have set for myself. What are you training for right now? Do you get overwhelmed by training plans and the number of miles that you are expected to log?
When I was at the Food and Wine Conference last weekend, I learned something about myself that I wasn’t exactly expecting. For the longest time, I have lived my life being afraid without even realizing it. I always have an excuse as why I don’t do something or why I am constantly waiting to start something. In reality, I am afraid of what will happen (or what won’t happen) if I actually do what I want. I realize that I am being vague but there are so many ideas that have been floating around my head for months, years even, that I am finally ready to start working on. It is amazing how one little thing can provide the spark needed to get my butt in gear! Do you struggle with fear and insecurities?
