This was a weird, weird week.
Last week, I shared with you my concerns about not wanting to be limited to blogging about just recovery, food and exercise.
Then Sunday this stomach issue began, and well, I haven’t exercised since then (save for doing one 20-minute Jillian Michaels’s Shred session last night), and I’ve had practically no appetite.
I had two evening events this week (dinner out Monday with friends and then my office party Wednesday), so I am definitely eating– just without my usual gusto.
And I still feel horribly bloated and uncomfortable, so I’m thinking a doc visit might be due this weekend.
I find it odd and ironic that the week I decide I don’t want to blog about this stuff exclusively anymore, it ends up that food/exercise aren’t on the brain–but the fact that they aren’t is “blogworthy” so to speak
Anyway, just an observation … what I really wanted to share today is this post about risk-taking that I read on a friend’s Facebook status yesterday and loved.
“Never be afraid to try something new…. remember that a lone amateur built the ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.”
Reading that really resonated with me with respect to the direction I want to take my blog. I’m still not 100% sure what direction that will be, and I’m considering it a work in progress (bear with me) … but the quote resonated and its message really inspired me to take a risk and follow my gut — which tells me to keep blogging, but expand my focus.
Wishing you a safe, happy and healthy weekend — and hoping you, too, will take a risk!!
How about you? What risks will you take this weekend?

Something must be going around because I feel like that picture too which is not good for my mentality in my recovery process. I want to stop eating but know I can’t for my health. What risk will I take this weekend? I don’t know yet, I need someone to push me or give me a suggestion.
I’m a reporter who is not really sociable. I have been invited to an event as myself not as Silly Girl the reporter. It is a risk for me because I like to hide behind the pen and pad.
This weekend I’m going to run for 30 minutes for the first time since my hip injury. If I can do that I’m going to start training for my 10k again!
wow that is an awesome quote. just awesome.
lissa i hope your tummy gets figured out.
