Life has been a whole lot better ever since I started letting my rubber arm run the show a little bit more. A spontaneous Canucks game the other night turning into a ‘just one more drink!’, oh man it’s 3am already – how’d that happen? – oops – to a blue bird sky and pow pow galore day at Mt. Baker tomorrow? How could I say no to that! Instead of worrying about how I’m going to get all my workouts in, sleep a certain amount of hours per night, or always thinking about my waistline, I’m having a whole lot more fun saying yes. It’s funny, because even though I seem to be saying yes a lot more lately, I feel more fit and healthier compared to when I’m so strict with myself. It’s as though I’m more balanced. And my body seems to like it. Sure I’ve been indulging at times , but that just makes my yoga classes and 20km runs all the more worth it. A balance. AND, the abs have been getting their fair share of workouts from laughing my ass off. Maybe this is the balance. The 80/20 balance. Maybe that’s what I’m learning. Who knows. Whatever it is, it’s working. I’m feeling good.
Smile with your heart!
