Morning Meanderings… Don’t Just Pin It!!!
Good morning! *lifts coffee cup to mouth “ow ow ow!!!”* *Puts coffee cup back on table “ow ow owww”*
Yup, I went back to kick boxing last night after ten months off and I feel AWESOME. Well and sore this morning, but in a good way. HOnestly there is something about putting gloves on and bashing a friend that well, brings peace to the world….
Ok, I didn’t bash her… but she did ask me not to hit so hard.
I can’t explain it but it just felt good. It made me feel strong and I love that feeling. I am no good at this. I dont remember the moves and the long chains of commands from the teacher with the “do this, this this, then this this this, then that and this , with a double that and end with 14 this and 6 that with a double twist of that”… yeah…. I get lost.
BUT… I will get better. And I am determined.
So…. has anyone else besides me caved and joined Pinterest? I wasn’t going to you know… I wasn’t. I didnt need another time suck in my life and I knew from the little I had seen of it that it would be just that….. pretty shiny pictures drawing me in… craft projects I think look cool but really when would I fit that in….. but then during The Dewey Read A Thon it was brought to my FULL attention that Pinterest and book reviews do mix. Once I was told that when you pin your book covers to Pinterest it links back to the review (if you link it from the post), AND that people have been picking up significant visitors that way….
suddenly I was listening.
So yes, now the past few weeks I have been pinning not only books from the blog, but I also found fitness tips, recipes, things I want to look at more closely and things that I think are funny… and life has been blissful…. pin this, pin that….
Trish from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity totally calls me out on this:
Oh come on…
now I can’t only pin it, but I also have to do something with it?
But she is right… I have pinned and pinned but I have not cooked one thing, tried one project…. so anyhoo…. I am in on this. You can click the picture above and read her whole post.
In other news, yesterday I put up a read-a-long, check it out. Cami’s fitness giveaway is still going on… and if you want to be my friend on Pinterest (or whatever it is called there…. ) I am Sheila DeChantal (and I think this is a link.)
