I have been away too long and I am so so so sorry! I have no great excuses, just that life gets busy...yada, yada, yada! Although I have looked in on some of you from time to time...I may or may not have commented but I have been reading off and on. I'm sorry I haven't been such a great bloggy friend as of late, I will do better.
Lately I have been working on just getting this new way of eating down. That has included finding new and fun recipes and trying new foods out. For instance, I made vegan organic cupcakes and a cake for my birthday last month and the family absolutely loved them. I made chocolate vegan cupcakes that turned out awesome, and a lemon cake that was to die for, it got the most praise. I was pleasantly surprised that the cake/cupcakes tasted so great and that the family actually ate and loved them.
I have only run a few times in the past couple weeks due to some pain in my ankle and pelvis. It doesn't seem to be anything serious so I am just trying to do other exercises in the mean time. I've been rowing, biking and using the Adaptive Motion Trainer and that has been going fantastic. I will get back to running when the weather turns a bit nicer as it seems my body doesn't like the cold all of the sudden. I am still wanting to train and complete the 13.1 in September, even if it ends up being my only one...it is something I need to do, for me. I am not sure I will continue running if my body keeps betraying me, we shall see. That last sentence almost makes me cry!
I trust y'all had a great couple of weeks! Tell me all about what you have been up to. Blessings and hugs!
Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
