That’s the new name of the game for the next few weeks. Now that we’re largely moved in to the new place, I want to establish connections to all the other things I left behind in Edmonton.
Namely, a gym. I’m feeling quite out of shape right now, as I haven’t been in the pool in over a month and to the gym in nearly as long. I’d still recommend Blitz Conditioning to anyone in the Edmonton area though; those guys are serious about fitness and will kick your butt into shape in no time.
Aside from the gym, I’d also like to dust off my camera and start getting out more. I live in a wonderful, colourful, and engaging neighbourhood, but once I get home from work and hit that couch, it’s game over. It’s a pattern I’d like to break, because not only am I becoming extremely lazy, it’s ridiculous to not take advantage of all that my area has to offer (which is a lot, btw).
It feels like I’m surviving through each day instead of really savouring and enjoying them. But, to be fair, I have made a huge effort to get out and do things with friends. Sushi last night with Tay, wine the night before with my neighbours (and maybe the night before that too). Vodka party downtown, hosted by a restaurant hoping to pimp their new flavour. Met more friends there.
So it’s not like I’m doing nothing all day every day. But very few photos are being taken (even though my iPhone is on me at all times) and I’m writing here less and less. BlogHer really got me inspired and wanting to flex my fingers more, but even thinking of updating sometimes is so exhausting I just crawl into bed instead.
Just as things start to normalize and stabilize, I’m looking for ways to shake it up. And isn’t that always the way?
