I am uninspired to blog and I don’t know why. Lots of things have been going on. We moved, had friends in town, worked hard, played hard and next week I get back into the kitchen at school.

I shall try and post something here in the next day or so in more detail. I’m off to meet my friends for a beer!

Injury city


I am having a really tough go of it over here. Everytime I turn around I am really hurting myself. First on Saturday, we had this.


The on Monday, I did this with my bike pedal.

Yeah, that hurt. Then tonight I did this.

No bloody photo because it was bleeding so bad that I needed to get a band aide on it asap. It’s pretty deep to…but I don’t think deep enough for stiches.  How did I do that one?

Get the picture? This is pretty frustrating because I can’t bike really well with the knee injury, it pulls the skin that is scabbed over and makes it bleed. I can’t run with the ankle injury because my shoes rub on the cut and make it bleed. And now I can’t do any downward dogs because my hand aches.

I am a mess.

Goal Setting part 2


Remember that post I wrote a few weeks back about goal setting? If not, here it is again.

Well I subscribe to the Lululemon blog on my google reader, and they recently wrote a post about setting goals that I loved reading. I thought I would copy and paste some of it here, but please visit their site to read the full article. It’s got some really good info on it.

1. Possibility

Set visions & goals in possibility and that are beyond what is likely to happen.

2. Vision

Your vision for your ideal life will drive your goals.

3. Balance

It is important to balance your vision & goals in the major domains of your life.

4. Audacity

Be bold and set goals that are a challenge for you.

5. Format

Formatting your goals in the correct way gives you the greatest likelihood of achieving them.

6. Integrity

Once your goals are set, consider how you incorporate them into your daily life to achieve them.

Here is the link. And really, go check it out and read the full article. I have downloaded their goal sheet and am trying to work on some of it. It’s hard to figure out where I want to be in 10 years, but something that I think I need.

People keep asking me what I want to do when I graduate Culinary School and I usually just tell them that I don’t know yet. Maybe I will just carry about my goal sheet and show it to them next time I am asked. ha.

I ran my half marathon and my prize was banged up knees. IMG_4709

Now I am taking some time off. Well, just backing down from intense training for a bit. Trying to let my body get back to working properly.

Our apartment looks like this.

Yeah….we need to move.

It is a gorgeous sunny day outside, and I have spent all my day inside. Fail.

I was going to go to yoga tonight, but I can’t bend my knee all the way. Double fail.

New classes start on Wednesday. Four more weeks till I am back in the kitchen. Excited.

I got acupunctured on the palms of my hands today, it hurt.

It is only August 1st and this month is already shaping up to be busy. Yikes.

Happy Monday.
