Well, I missed you.
After the race I really needed to spend some time re-grouping. You know, you hold something as a Goal in front of you for so long and then when you achieve it, you have to stop and think “What will I do next?”
But while I was trying to decide my next move, my husband decided to surprise us with a family vacation to Greece! So off we went, totally spontaneous-like.
We had our Passover seder with Chabad of Athens (and 200 other Jews from Greece and all over the world!). The vacation was awesomely fun, but eating was a bit difficult for me. Not only was it Passover (no bread or flour products etc), but Greece is not really such a vegetarian-friendly place! In fact, I found that just asking “Do you have anything Vegetarian?” was a remarkably effective way of getting rid of the restaurant hawkers that follow you down the street trying to convince you to eat in their taverna. They dropped me like a hot potato every time I asked that! I ate A LOT of cucumbers, tomatoes, and french fries and not much else!
Now that I have had a few days at home, mainly spent sleeping for hours and hours and eating MY FOODS, my plan for my next goal(s) is solidifying. Here are some of the things I will be working on here on the blog for May:
Goal #1: Blog Every day! I want to blog mostly food and recipes, because quite frankly it has been about 2 months since I have done much interesting cooking and my family looks sad and malnourished. If I know I have to blog something interesting, I will have to cook it first!
Goal #2: Do a blog series about getting into the exercise habit, especially about running and training for races.
Goal #3: Run a couple of workshops in May, probably a 30-Day Detox and also a cooking class. Let me know if there is anything you’d like to see offered or any times and days you’d like to request.
Goal #4: I’m teaching a family nutrition workshop at City Kids in Tel Aviv on May 16th at 20:30. You can read more about that and City Kids HERE.
Goal #5: Personally I am also working on a few things: I’m going to be back in the gym after a hiatus, justa working on my fitness. I’m doing a gigantic project with my coach to help me gain some clarity in a few areas. And additionally, I want to have May be totally Vegan. I’ve been eating lots of eggs and dairy in the past 3 weeks or so and I want to cut them back out. I feel better without them, not to mention how much better my skin is without dairy, Holy Cow, literally!
So that’s where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going. I hope you will be here reading with me and leaving me your comments and feedback.
