Back from the Gulf

Hey there Everyone!

I am back - back from illness and also back from spending a week at our condo in the Gulf. Such power sunshine and water have...

So, what was I doing down there?  Being completely selfish and doing whatever the heck I wanted. Yep, and I say that with no guilt. Husband and dog left behind in Indiana in a house I did not clean before leaving. Detect any guilt?  Nope.  Left behind a couple huge work projects I have going on. Detect any worry?  Nada, zilch, zero. Emails and phone messages were left to pile up. Detect any concern? Not one ounce! Found an outlet mall near the Gulf and went a little shoe crazy despite funds being a tad low right now. Am I filled with regret? Heck, no. No regret AND my feet are looking fine!

My point?

Being "selfish" occasionally isn't a bad thing....sometimes it's a self-sustaining thing, a renewal thing, a way to rejuvenate and refresh, a way to come back to your life with a little more verve. Truth is - it feels pretty darn good to have a little "you time".    I believe wholeheartedly in selflessness and service - but I also believe wholeheartedly in a little selfishness.  It's all about balance, right?

That all said, I have returned healthy and ready to dive into working out seriously again and fine-tuning my eating in preparation for the DC half marathon at the end of March (with deadlift queen Vanessa who will fly in from San Diego to run with me).   AND, I look forward to seeing all of you very soon.
