How are you all?

Me I am absolutely fiddle dee dee, today.

I have found my running mojo!


And I want one of these LOL!

Well Tracy's little book anyway, so every time I do something that pushes me forward, out of my comfort zone or I did not want to do, I am going to write it all down.

I am feeling quite energized at the moment and I have learnt to say no! 

No to the things I don't want to do.
No to the things that put me in a difficult position.
No to agreeing to do what everyone else wants to do.

Does that make me selfish?? It may do, but are the people asking me to do what they want and not considering me being selfish too! So they are allowed to be, but I am not.

I don't think so, it's just different personalties  - I was bought up to respect my elders, Piers etc. I turned it around to meaning I had to be a People Pleaser. It did not mean I was a weak person.

I am finding the balance that I like,
Yes to do things others like too to make them happy. 
 Remembering  all the whilst ,Yes its okay to say actually I don't want to or I don't like it.

I am uncomfortable with the people however who do what they want all the time and never think about others feelings.

It may be they see themselves as just strong minded people sticking up for themselves.
But at the expense of being rude, ignorant and unfeeling to others that care about them??

There may have been a trigger or circumstance they feel they have a right or reason to treat others that way, but does it Help? Really?

I am all for live and let live, letting go of the past, as I am told too by some and I do truly try,
I don't mind them telling me their opinion - I do mind them telling me this if they do not live by what they preach however.

This may appear as a ranting post, but it is not honestly.

It is just a true reflection of how I feel today.

If we were all just a little bit mindful of how we treat, strangers, acquaintances, colleagues, family and friends. We may all live in a nicer, calmer, world .

Is it really that hard just to be nice to People.

Take care and Hugs to all today xxx

Last night I went Running with a group of running club ladies around Plymouth Hoe , Barbican and Royal parade, 3 different loops and I managed to run, albeit slowly For 6.20 Miles I am so happy I could burst. I have found my running MOJO! 

Yee ha!!

Chatted and caught up with some, met new ladies and built some bridges too.

I am all about living and loving life, letting bygones be bygones at the moment.
Life is just too short to let the bad vibes in.

This I have learnt, upset, upsets me x

Friday 20th March, - Partial Eclipse Day

Posted by Tracy at 08:43 0 comments
Well here we go, will we see it won't we see it. The Partial Eclipse that is. 

I remember the total eclipse, I was working in the Evening Herald offices on the family announcements at the time. We had a great big monitor set up in the office and we were on the middle floor of the big glass ship building. It was so eerily quiet as everything went to sleep the birds stopped singing and life went still.

Don't quite know if today will be as spectacular as that - we shall see.

I have been tracking well the last 3 days - I am taking each day as it comes and I am very happy with the way my head is in gear at the moment. Life is looking up.

I also completed my first 5km of the year (well c25k over the last 5 weeks has got me back there) on the treadmill yesterday morning. 11.26 minute miles and that was including the 5 minute warm up and cool down walks, so so happy as I can return to club knowing I can start in the 12 minute mile group and work back up to  10's.

On that note 

This picture sums up yesterday afternoon and evening. I was debating going back to running club.

I just needed to go get my body back through the door, see if I felt comfortable with it all. I went with a friend who always makes me feel comfortable running and I used to spur her on a bit. I have vowed to run with her Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Going back was not as hard as I thought. To be fair there are a load of new People (well new to me), so I was very much a newbie to them, but some of the older members said or waved hello. I did lurk in the back a bit. I did not run as I had already ran that afternoon, but felt good talking to people about running further, getting me back to 4 then 5 then 6 then who Knows how many miles.

So this morning sees me feeling a little bit stronger again. I cannot wait till Tuesday.

Hope you all have a wonderful day - and a lovely weekend xx
