Hello, hello. How is your week so far? How was Halloween?
This week marked week 1 of the Refine Method challenge, and I am loving it. I feel so sore so much of the time, but I feel like I am actually getting stronger.
Song of the week: “No Children” by The Mountain Goats.
All the workouts:
Hey guys. Before I dive into this week’s fitness review, I wanted to share this post I read on Foodiecology, titled “An Open Letter to the Women Who Read Healthy Living Blogs.” The post discusses how reading about the wellness-inspired choices other people make can leave us feeling shitty or inadequate. I definitely related to the sentiment of unspoken competition with total web-strangers. It starts earnestly as piqued curiosity and is furthered by internet anonymity where we don’t see the full picture.
Part of the reason I started this blog is because I’m a regular person. Anyone who knows me IRL knows I’ve no natural gift toward athletics. (My high school friends still exclusively see me as a klutz. Whatever.) But what I do have going for me on this forum is that I’m not shy and I’m eager to share my failings along with my successes. (Honestly am a little more excited to share the fails because they make for way funnier blog posts.)
