I have had a rough week at work. Lots of competing demands for time and unexpected issues make for a worn out Lishy who doesn’t get to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. However, when there is a temptation to “take a break” from goals because it would be completely justified, that’s all the more reason to power through.
This week I found that my stress was somewhat alleviated by taking a time out to focus on my goals and the things that matter in my life. I managed to stay on track with my running. I am at 23.5 miles total towards my goal for the year. I have 6.4 miles logged for the week. This alone is a big step for me as in the past I would use my life events as an excuse to avoid the gym or a run. A 6.5 mile run on Saturday will get me caught up for the week and, in an unexpected way, these dates with the running track help me to structure my life and maintain a certain sense of organization. It works.
I’d be lying if I said these little critters didn’t help make life better as well:
On to the final stretch of the week! Stay tuned for a great cupcake recipe on Saturday!
