Absolutes..

So the past week was rather interesting.. i was doing great on the 'consistency' train on the bike, then my train broke down.. i don't know what happened but it got me thinking about Absolutes.. do they even exist? Yes the hours allocated for training are absolutes.. work is an absolute but surely there should be some give to the expectation.. I realized i very much love red wine but am not quite enjoying it at the moment, unsure if its just cause i battle to down it or the morning after feeling.. when my training is compromised because i feel like hell.. off 1 glass of wine.. weak :(

I then decided, instead of beating myself up over sessions not done, i could find happiness and respite in the fact that though i wasn't consistent on the bike, i ran.. and ran.. and ran.. I've never felt stronger in my run.. it felt like that's exactly where i had to be where the air in my lungs broke into the biggest feeling of being alive... steady ...not the fastest and just not pushing too hard.. absolutes.. i realize that my absolute is keeping fit, being healthy, living life and just being present in the moment.. its being consistent with moving.. and breathing and pushing boundaries.. it need not be in one particular discipline.. just the moving.. and breathing and pushing boundaries..

Blessed, 

Some pics from the past week as i enjoy being present in every moment..my greatest blessing being an aunt.. a sister and a friend.. Happy new week good people**!

Hello World**!


I cant believe the last time i wrote was after 94.7.. time sure does fly.. we are 2 weeks to Christmas.. hectic times**!

I was reflecting on the past month and some of the goals i had for myself - in the month of November..
Discipline is such a funny trait, you go through moments where no bad food can go past you without you 'cheating' or having a 'cheat day' ..and then you realize that all these cheats are worth nothing upon closer inspection..

I decided beginning of November that regardless of all pressures, if i can keep up with the training plan that my coach had setup for me with no excuses and no chickening out.. i could have the Absa Cape Epic - then i would know that i am committed to the whole training that comes with the Absa Cape Epic and i would above all else, push and pull and crawl and beg to get to that entry, i finished November feeling very good, i'd done all the sessions that were planned for me, as well as all the strength training i had on my Nike Program... it opened my eyes to the little push that brings you to your best... i hadn't realized how much id given in - to- giving either from exhaustion, the work pressures.. the this .. the that.. interesting finding.

I also promised myself to balance my life better, with time on the bike, with friends and with family all being in sync, and eating well, food that fuels, these are all going well.. i love the place that I've found with myself in making time for all my loves and still getting some Zandi time.. i like her a lot more now:)

Let me not blabber, below are some pics from the past month between the bike and and and :)
