Hello there! Today I' disguised as a tree. An outfit that makes cycling to work easy. An outfit that leaves me comfy while I sit at my desk all day long. See what is written on my whiteboard in my office? I use the Getting Things Done system by David Allen. Its a productivity system that I find highly effective. Anyway, his premise is that our minds are like water and unless we capture (right down, or document in some way) information, we will most likely forget it. This is indeed accurate. I use Evernote on my iPhone to keep track of things when I am out and about and I even have a running list of photoshoot locations (ie. nice backdrop walls, graffiti, train tracks, etc) so that when I have the chance to get out for photos I can easily find good locations. What about you? What do you use to track information, to manage your projects?
Day 2 of the Wild Rose Detox Cleanse as well. I pretty much eat simple regularly anyway so this is not so hard to do, just helps to cut back on the dark chocolate :)

I don't think I introduced you to our new kitty(s) either. Well. After poor Deze left us I thought life would never be the same. And it isn't. Its now just different. We adopted 2 Devon Rex cats. They are hypoallergenic so my man isn't allergic and all scratchy and itchy with these 2. Of course, I will share more photos as time goes on (see one below). They came with strange names but we didn't have the heart to change them:).
Its that time of year where I feel FAT. Its a tough transition from training so intensely for so many months for races and then going to working out just for leisure (ie. TRX, bootcamps, etc). It is partly mental but also physical. Take away the training volume and intensity but the love of eating is still there!! Oh well. That too will soon change. Training season has started and we have a long ride in the (RAIN) tomorrow!!

Yes. Thats right. Red. Fitted. And a green computer. Not to mention animal print shoes. A good day all in all.

The voice in my head scolded: " what a crash and burn", "what an idiot", " they will think you are stupid" and on and on. I quickly wrestled those voices to the ground and replaced them with "it's not the end of the world", "shake it off". I don't know about you but boy my default inner conversations are sure not supportive nor empowering.
Several people came up to me and made comments about their interest in some of my key points, complimented me on the presentation, and also said they could feel my pain when the technology all failed. At any rate, I lived. I did not die (even though in the moment I wished a hole would open up and swallow me away). A good reminder to not take yourself so seriously and just roll with what life throws your way in the moment!!! LOL What a day!!

You know that feeling when you put on an outfit and you feel amazing VERSUS that frumpy outfit and you feel frumpy? I find that strange given our happiness is an experience rather than to be sourced from something external. Anyway-- just a thought or question.
Do you think your outfit is what makes you feel good/not good? And if so why?
