My Life on the Mat

I thought a lot about what I would write for today. It's been just over three weeks since I joined that elusive one percent and ran my first marathon. As of the time I'm writing this, it's been just over one day since I officially began my training for yoga teaching certification. We're approaching the winter and my second running anniversary. All things I could talk about from a training perspective.

But what I want to talk about today is more of a journey than a goal. That makes sense for me, though, because even though goals are pretty much the only way I get anything done, I prefer to think of such things as benchmarks along the journey, rather than endpoints or finish lines—even when they, in fact, are finish lines.

Sunday Sweats 47: YTT Week 1

November 16–22

It's here! It's finally here! I started yoga teacher training (YTT) today, a venture I've been wanting to take on since college and have been anxiously awaiting since I (finally!) reserved my place in this training back in the spring. I can't believe I put it off for so long, but I know why I did: it's a huge time commitment. My session is all day Sundays from now through March. Even still, I'm so glad it's finally here and I can't wait to give half my weekend over to this training for the next several months.

Worth It

Three and a half years ago, I accepted an offer for my first full-time job in my industry post-grad. I came to a small, niche publishing company as an editor, and I was so happy. I would write about my interests and passions (health, wellness, and public education), and I could wear leggings to the office. I could stroll in around 9:15 and I soon realized my coworkers were some of the best people I'd ever met. And for about two years, I liked my job. And then, it was kind of like how John Green described falling in love. I started hating my job slowly, and then all at once.

I'm On a Roll

I don't even know how many different places there are now to link up these Wednesday confessions, but I do know this: I have confessions to make. I also know that Kathy (with the help of the sweet Nadine) has resurrected her linkup that started them all, and my friend Sarah is playing hostess for us too. Links all around. But more importantly, here are some recent embarrassing things about me.
