Hitting the Reset

Yesterday’s events at the Boston Marathon make my heart hurt. (You can click on any number of links in the Google search linked if you haven’t heard about it yet.) I can not put into words the absolute disgust that I feel towards the people responsible – whoever they might be – and I’m not going to try and speak eloquently at this time. I will just say Boston, I love you dearly and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this horrific event.  Everyone and everything Boston, I hope you can feel me hugging you with my heart. Dirty water and Red Sox included.

Vacation was nice and I’m thrilled to be home and back at work. I know, I know, it’s weird right? One of the reasons that I’m thrilled to be home and back at work is that it provides a whole lot of structure to my life. As much as I enjoy spontaneity, I can appreciate what structure offers my life. Namely, a framework to work on my goals.

While I could have done a better job on vacation of sticking to weight loss work and running, I had a couple of big obstacles while I was there: I didn’t care to be careful about what I was eating and I didn’t run because my foot got way  messed up with my eczema. (This second one will likely always be an occasional issue.)

Now that I’m home, it’s back to work and reset my efforts. First things first, get back on track with the food! (I’m tracking on MyFitnessPalBakingSuit if you want to follow my progress or have me help cheer you on.) Also to get back in the pool while my foot heals. (I’m actually going to try a run tonight, but I don’t have high hopes at the moment.) I have a couple of races coming up that I’d like to at the very least want to make a decent showing in.)

For now that will be enough to take on with the Project 365, Red Letter Reads write ups, Court is Crafty site changes and some other things that need to be wrapped up and finalized. After a break from reality, I’m feeling energized and ready to hit that reset button.
