Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

#MicroblogMondays 0.5 #NaBloMoPo Day 7 - The Challenge

My gym is having a  MEPS (myzone effort points) challenge called Chasing Turkey. It runs from 10/22 to 11/22 and there are 3 levels to aim for - 5,000 MEPS, 6,000 MEPS and 8,000 MEPS. In one month the 5,000 MEPS equates to me doing a 500 kcal workout (moderate-high intensity) for 31 days straight. Once I figured that out, I knew that I'd have to track it on a spreadsheet because the goal difficult and it basically throws me into overtraining about 2/3 of the way through. Now that it's the last 3 days, I can tell you, my body is pissed. But, I'll make it to the 5,000 because I set a goal. I have no idea what the prize is, glory? bragging rights? A ticket to lots of bodywork sessions to undo everything that I've done to fatigue/overwork/pull/jam various muscles and joints?  (that would be a kickass prize, I wish...)

Behold, my true nerd showing through
