Welcome to Fitness Friday and the new jillconyers [dot] com! Dont’ you love the sound of that : )
I still have things to add and design changes to make but I couldn’t wait any longer to share. It has taken countless hours (headaches and frustrations) to migrate from Typepad to a self hosted WordPress blog without losing more than 5 years of blogging content. It’s done (with the help of a friend)! Keep an eye out for more changes in the next few weeks.
Speaking of changes. As of this week I’m the mom of 2 teens. Crazy busy with 2 December birthdays.
Attitude makes such a big difference! Of the past 48 weeks the last 2 have presented the biggest obstacles to finding time to workout and run…weather, Chad’s (who works at Amazon so you can only imagine) insane work schedule, working late, parties, dinners, driving kids, sleepovers and on and on. At first I was so incredibly frustrated which meant stress. Until one day it hit me.
I thought of something Julia (of Pain, Pride and Perseverance) talks about on her blog. What am I supposed to learn from this? My attitude and perspective changed. I realized that Chad, Alec and Alyssa are so great about often working life around my running (and workout) schedule 11 months out of the year. So December is a bit difficult for me. Big deal. I’m still running and working out. Maybe it’s not when I want or as often as I want. Again. Big deal! That was all it took to eliminate the stress of how crazy December is. Life is good 🙂
Next Fitness Friday! To celebrate registering for my first Twelve In Twenty Twelve race and my new blog, next Friday I’m hosting a wonderful giveaway from the designer of my all time favorite necklace 🙂
