Something That Empowered Me In 2016

This is another writing prompt from the ladies of FitApproach / Sweatpink. This one is kinda difficult for me as I don't feel like anyone or anything really empowered my 2016. I feel like it was all me.

Share something that empowered you in 2016. Take a second to reflect and think about the things you did or learned in 2016. What empowered you to be your best self? Was it learning a new skill? A major life event? Taking a leap of faith? How will you build on what you learned last year?
I did not feel I was at my best self all 2016. I was just in a funk the whole year. All of my running times sucked, training was flat out hard, my eating and drinking was crap. I've been in a constant state of stress in my homelife - I've been fighting with the MIL nearly daily. My BFF's mother passed right before Christmas. I did not have a good year.

But I tried to change it around. I have reduced my drinking - I've pretty much given up on doing at home wine tastings because I enjoy it WAAAAAY too much. We went to Costco and have a bunch of healthy things all ready to nibble in the freezer. I joined the gym and have been trying to go as often as I can - and doing other things other then treddy and elliptical. Its a small gym and the weights have intimidated me here for some reason.

So, I guess my difficulties in 2016 have empowered my 2017 when I come to look at it. :-)



Words of wisdom
What empowered your 2016? How is that gonna help your 2017?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
