Happy Friday! Unfortunately, there is no fun camel for Friday, BUT there is this ridiculously awesome Breaking Bad recap video by Rhett and Link:
Hopefully you checked out yesterday’s photography 101 post on a few things to know about DSLR cameras! I’m excited to get this series rolling, and am hoping to post lesson 2 sometime soon!
Real quick before I get into my actual post, I wanted to share a point I read today in 48 Days To The Work You Love. If you’ve been following along you know I’ve been reading through Dan Miller’s inspirational book, as sort of a personal journey to figure out some things, and realign my passions with my goals. Instead of doing a full recap of today’s reading, I’ve instead picked out a specific point from this chapter that really stuck out to me, and you other health and fitness bloggers will appreciate it as well!
“The energy and creativity that can come from a sharp mind and body can generate the very ideas you need at this time…Our physical health has a direct relationship to the energy and creativity we bring to our work.”
I agree with this wholeheartedly. When I make time for myself to exercise, and put my physical well being FIRST, everything else tends to fall into place, and my mind is free and clear of all the junk that was previously clogging it up!
And one last point to get you thinking, since all you bloggers are really entrepreneurs at heart…
I’ll let you sit and stir on that 🙂
And now, let’s chat shopping. Recently I won a gift card from the fabulous company, Oiselle, and I’ve been chomping at the bit to put it to good use! I’ve been having a hard time deciding what to order. Since fall is right around the corner, and even though it will still be hot until October, my decision is a tough one. I jumped on their website this morning and poked around, hoping I would be able to make up my mind. But now, I’m in love with too many things, and it looks like this gift card might actually come with a larger shopping spree than anticipated! Here are some items I’m currently loving and eyeballing…
I just love them all!! Oiselle makes super cute running clothes, with a fun, unique style. A new running store here in town, Rock City Running, recently started carrying Oiselle, so I’m tempted to go to the store and try on a few items to make sure I order the right size! If you’re wondering where a Oiselle dealer is near you, check out their dealer locater page!
I think ordering a new outfit will be just what I need to get my groove back! I’ve been telling myself all week that this week has been a start-over week, and tomorrow I will start fresh, with a clear mind, and FINALLY start my half marathon/marathon training. Bring. It. On.
In case you were wondering, the half I am running is the Soaring Wings Half Marathon in Conway, Arkansas.
And the full I am running is the St. Jude Memphis Marathon in Memphis, Tennessee.
Which piece is your favorite? Is there something else on their website that you’re in love with and I should consider? How are you staying active this weekend?
