Ups and downs

Why is it that when you're charging ahead at full speed with some parts of your life, not sparing the horses, other parts end up hanging off the back of the wagon, getting dragged along in the dirt, or falling by the wayside altogether? Maybe it has to be that way to achieve some sort of balance. Or maybe I'm just really crap at managing my own "stuff".

Just when I'm all set to step things up a notch in all parts of my life, something fizzles.... Training is going brilliantly, with all sessions completed and all weights significantly increased this week. Nutrition is on track, helped by the new (or improved) recipes I'm churning out to meet my book goal.

I'm sleeping well, remembering my supplements and making time for some R & R too. I'm emotionally quite stable, with no horror mood swings, anxiety attacks or general grumpiness.

But.... I cannot seem to blog. This week - apart from two recipes - I've managed two posts that were excruciatingly difficult to write, took hours and that still don't express what I wanted to say. I've sat in front of the computer thinking, writing, deleting, re-writing, walking away and coming back with no hint of the creative juices reappearing.

So I give up. If I have nothing to say, I'll be saying nothing. Eventually, things have to sort themselves out, right?

Meanwhile, here's a couple of freebies that you might enjoy:

Free recipes



I received a copy of Michelle Koen's Healthy Helpings cook book just before Christmas and it is packed FULL of great food that you won't end up wearing around your waist. Best of all, you can download six sample recipes to try out for free. I'm pretty sure you'll want to buy the book after that....

Free fitness program

If you've been telling yourself that you don't have time for exercise, you need to download The Angry Birds workout, courtesy of Nerd Fitness. I've only recently discovered this site and it is stuffed full of good info, absorbing reading and some useful (and free) fitness routines. This one is so simple, an idiot could do it, it requires no equipment and it won't take any more time than the amount you waste playing Angry Birds....



I'll be back when I have something to say. Hopefully that'll be tomorrow. Yeah, we'll see...

My phone somehow has Angry Birds installed on it.. now, I'm not sure 'who' did that, but it wasn't me.... ;-/ I have my suspicions...

If not being able to blog is the biggest problem, then things must be going well, right :)

Can I do the Angry Birds workout if I've never played angry birds?

Kek said...

I've never played Angry Birds myself, but I have plenty of other time-wasters. ;o)

Yes, Kathryn, I guess it's hardly something to whinge about. Just driving me a bit nuts.

I keep telling myself that Angry Birds is not designed to help my productivity...

Kek said...

I'm not actually sure what Angry Birds is designed for, Clara. Can't say I've ever played it myself; I'm not game to start. I can see entire days disappearing...
