Cause We About To Open A Flood

I haven’t been posting on groningenrain.nl but I have been trying to write every day. I read about ‘morning pages’ once long ago and incorporated it into my daily practice. And then I stopped. And then I did it again. And then I stopped. It’s definitely been off again on again for years. But since the twins birth, I’ve been on more than off.

Yay, baby steps!

Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat, as needed.

Another habit that I want to reincorporate (besides posting here!) is strength training and exercise. Specifically with body weight and then free weights. It’s been ten forevers. Really, ever since my personal trainer moved back to Israel. Which was shortly before I was pregnant with PROS.alpha.

And, then, well, motherhood.

Get Ready For More Of This Crap

You can totally tell that I posted yesterday’s post when I was in a groove.

Or.

You can tell now?

There are more than a few reasons why I haven’t been posting on here, most importantly, really, is #TWINS.

Obviously.

And the other thing is that I got out of the habit.

Also, obviously.

But less obviously is that I’ve been recovering from All The Complications ™ and one of the things that happened is that I lost a shit ton of weight really fast. And how are you supposed to talk about that?

“Oh, hey, I just had twins, but look, I’m totally back in my pre-first-pregnancy clothes, but poor me, I’m so so skinny.”

Erm…

Tackling Talker’s Block With a Sledge Hammer

(V will be so happy that I’m starting this post this way…)

I was listening to a podcast the other day. Specifically, the Tim Ferris podcast featuring Seth Godin who talked about so many amazing things like how he makes honey vodka and his obsession with chocolate and that if you’d like to tackle writer’s block, write every day.

And I do.
