Faux Vacation

I love the word "faux"!

Confession: I have not gone on a run since Monday. My foot has really been hurting and I just haven't felt like pushing through. I know. I know. I am giving myself until Sunday. On Sunday, I have committed to run Chelsea's Run hosted by Katye. So Sunday I'm done with my pity party!! Woot Woot! That's why I called this post "faux vacation." Well, that and I plan on seeing a view something like this Saturday evening:


I'm hoping to go to Door County or Lake Geneva. Now, I just have to talk Mike into it ;)

A big shout out to all of you amazing running bloggers. You have made this journey of mine so much richer! There is no doubt in my mind that I will complete the Couch to 5K program (even with my little break this week). I have no doubt that I will run a 5K! I have no doubt I am and always will be a runner! Thank you all so much for your support and guidance!

Peace.

Trish

p.s. You may have noticed I changed the "title/name" of my blog. I feel like everyday is a new chance to be a better me. To have a better experience. To begin again...

  1. Enjoy the vacation from running. It's not bad to take a break once in a while and then pick back up! I'm glad my bad runs inspire you - it's nice to have them serve a purpose. ;o)

  2. Enjoy the rest of your "vacation". I haven't run since Saturday, so you're doing better than me. Have fun on "Chelsea's Run", good for you for signing up!

    I like the new title. :o)

  3. You are not the only one loving the word faux! I wish I could use it more often (and words like chic and passe)

    It is great to have an event to look forward to as exercise motivation; I definitely have ups and downs when I want to run all the time and when I don't run for a couple weeks

  8. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new blog title... perfect and so thought-provoking. :)

    It's Sunday... so did you get to see that amazing view??

    P.S.~ I haven't run since Wednesday. Slacker, I know! But tomorrow, I will hit the streets! Told hubs "I know I'm going to work super-hard w/ my new training group that starts soon." He just smiled and said, "Okay, honey..." Hmmm... do you suppose he wasn't buying it? LOL

    HUGS from Orlando! Just posted a silly late-night message. :)

    Oh, and I love the word 'faux,' too.. ha ha

  11. I like the new name, too. Hadn't seen any updates from you in a while, though. Hope you are doing okay!

    Also, wanted to say thank you for the cute headband and the subsrcip to RW. Loving both of them and I think of you every time I get an issue in the mail. :) Haven't had a chance to wear my headband yet because it's been raining like crazy here...so it's been a hat lately. The sun is coming!

  13. Hi! I am just starting training for a 5k and thought it would be smart for me to stalk, or rather, read about other people's journeys with trying this "running business" :) I appreciate just how real your blog is and it's encouraging to me! Can't wait to hear more about your journey!

  14. Oh! Your blog is so inspiring! Makes me want to run!! Happy birthday to your "babies" and thank you for entering the giveaway I had while on vacation! I will post the results today . . . Kristin xo

Dreams...

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:





I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;)

Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …
I'm not sure where I found this, but thank you whoever you are!

My two younger daughters have birthdays this weekend. They are two years minus a day apart.  Blech!  I feel for them, but hey, God's will.

Anyway, they are turning 13 and 15 and NEITHER OF THEM WANTED A CAKE. No cake. For a birthday. No birthday cake.  Huh. I did not make a cake.  I did try convincing them (because, well, it's cake), but nope.  I didn't see the point in making cakes if they would only eat a tiny piece to make me feel good and then I'd have all of that cake staring at me. For days.....

For those of you who aren't crafty or live under a rock if you are in the sewing world, Quilt Market is in Portland this weekend.  I am soooo jealous.  It is a trade show, only open to those who own shops, pattern makers, fabric makers, etc.  Someday, I intend to go to quilt market.  If you'd like to see some fabric/quilt eye candy, google spring 2013 quilt market.  Be prepared, it's awesome…
