I’m a grumpy gus this weekend. I took the week off of running to give my knee a rest. I tried to run on Saturday and only made it a mile before it started hurting again. DH thinks it’s a tight IT band. So, I’m trying to ice and stretch and all that good stuff. It’s kind of depressing because I have lots of races I’m looking forward to this spring.
On the bright side, after a lot of trial and error, I FINALLY figured out how to play DVDs on my laptop! I know that sounds like such a simple thing, but I didn’t realize that laptops don’t come with movie players any more. I downloaded MediaPlayer and iTunes and neither would recognize my old Spinervals DVD. So I finally downloaded a player from videolan.org and voila! Now I have no excuse not to get on my trainer and also dig out my yoga DVDs. Here’s hoping the bike doesn’t bother my knee like running has been.
It’s a good thing that Just #AddJoy starts on Wednesday! I definitely need to make a concerted effort to focus on the small things that bring me joy.
This Lent, join me in finding simple ways to add joy to life every day.
We are so busy that we do not take the time to nourish ourselves. So rather than giving something up this Lent, I want to see what I can take the time to notice. I want to stop and smell the snow; to savor healthy food; to take pleasure in creating pretty things. Please consider joining me to find one thing each day that you can do to nourish your body, mind, or soul.
There are several ways that you can choose to get involved.
Ideas on the blog each weekday.
Each weekday during the challenge, I will post a theme with suggestions for adding joy. Action steps will be everything from something simple like going for a five minute walk to something more in depth like developing a meal plan for a month. Of course, everything is optional. These are just idea starters!
