bliss...





... so i was at the gym today (on one of the rare days i get to go) and i decided to see what pace my running had slowed to - i used to run close to a 7 min mile (at least for a couple of miles) but i have slowed considerably since being pregnant. i was still booking it at a 8:30 min/mile pace for about 2 miles. i am sure some of the guys around me were a bit taken aback that a visibly pregnant woman was running faster than they were (LOL)! i know i will get back into the swing of things after our baby is here.

but that running was really good for me. i usually don't listen to any news, music or anything else when i run. i use that time to reflect upon things which are troubling me or are coming fast and furious my way (like CHA for example) and after a bit of sweating, it seems that everything is light years away - a state of bliss for me... fellow runners know what i am talking about.

speaking of bliss - i created myself this laughing cow cheese wheel BLISS album - just to remind myself when i am blue that truly it is just a state of mind away from BLISS. i listed questions to reflect upon - blessings i have, pictures of me smiling - all to bring me back to being thankful for all i have. you can see the new Maya Road ribbons peeking out from some of the pictures. i really love them and how they coordinate with our current line!

Fantastic idea and totally cute, too!

Ummm, has no one told you that your life will never be your own again once you have this baby? LOL!
