SO. why I haven't written in a LONG. TIME. ready?
I love fitness. But it's not my entire life.
I've been threatening to pierce my neck and get an OM symbol tatooed on my forearm, and I'm starting to think I feel the need to prove to myself who I am. But maybe that doesn't require needles and ink. Maybe that just means a few more yoga classes and a few more beers alongside my kale and lentils.
Fitness and health are my job and have been - for years - my hobby. But fitness and the business thereof has slowly become the majority of my social life, my marital conversations and my thinking process.
While I feel blessed to have my passion as my work -- I miss a lot of my old life.
I miss really good music.
Mason Jennings > Britney Spears 'Spin Remix of World Ends' by an order of 1,000,000,000
I miss dark and microbrew beer.
seriously... the low cal/low carb stuff is CRAP.
I miss staying out late.
I love getting my sweat on Saturday mornings..just can't stay up past 11 pm on Fridays...
I miss cute shoooooes.
my poor feet hate my beautiful beautiful stilettos
And instead of making fitness goals for April - as was my original plan - I am setting a goal of being me again. I will wear jeans and concert t-shirts instead of Nike Dri-Fit and New Balance Minimus. I will hit up Edna's yoga class instead of beating my head against a grind workout I feel like I should tackle.
I'll write up a few workouts. And blog a few recipes. But I'll probably talk about MUSIC. and life. and other stuff that is important to me ...speaking of which...
Looking for some new music?
My friend Korey and I hit up the Independent tonight to see Dry the River
and The Bowerbirds
after I heard Dry the River on NPR and was immediately obsessed. It was exactly what I've been missing. Standing, listening to the raw edges of a guitar with a beer in my hand...leaning against the wall because you can feel the bass better. So I came home, passed up the Michelob Ultra for the Stone Ruination in the fridge... and started writing.
because it's about time I get a life.
