This is not a word that frightens me. I went through so many changes up to the age of 12, I don't feel content unless there is a big change going on and turning everything upside down. Funny though, it too me years to figure that out. I bought my first house, got married, had a baby and completely renovated the house all in 5 years. I left my full time, permanent job to take on a 6 month contract that had me working closer to home. I turned down a full time, permanent job offer to work contract for a year with the promise that a permanent job would be mine in the end (it was). I moved my family twice in one year so we could live on this lovely farm. I know I can embrace change. And things have been become a bit too day to day lately. Not mundane (Danny nearly knocked me unconscious on the weekend swinging his head toward his oats bucket as I walked by with it - rookie move) but everyday I wake up and know what the day will bring. My husband and I have gotten settled nicely into our new fall / winter routines so I'm about to shake it up. I'm on a 28 day clean eating program. It's also a pretty hard core exercise schedule - 6 days a week. What's life without a little challenge? Today is my first day and I know it's going to be one of the hardest things I've ever done. Most of the food on the program is stuff I eat anyway, I only had to buy greek yogurt! And I steamed kale instead of roasting it - delicious! It's the exercise part that scares me a bit - I haven't done a proper push up in years and tonight I have to do 15. And I am going to miss my processed food, I'm not going to lie. This will not become a fitness blog but I will post updates. Please send me your positive vibes and wishes.
