Sometimes I Need a Filter

Today a did a dancing inspired move for my 44.  (Relax – I didn’t actually dance – that would be scary!!!)  I did a plie to a releve – sounds fancy, huh?  

ready – heels together
loser down to plie
lower down to plie
lift heels
lift heels
stand with heels still up
stand with heels still up
return to start
return to start

This was actually a nice 44 – I kept a slow steady pace through the motions and really enjoyed it.

I went old-school today for my workout – The Firm – Bootcamp Maximum Calorie Burn.  I have always been a fan of the The Firm workouts and this one is great – 50+ minutes of toning (fairly light weights), plyo moves and cardio segments.

Yesterday in my post about writing like you talk one of the comments was to the effect that in writing it is easier to go back and edit things.  So very true – unless for some reason you don’t.  Screen shot 2013-10-18 at 6.43.41 AMA lot of times when I’m telling Chris something about my day, I add a lot of thoughts that I didn’t really say out-loud but I sure did think them!!!!   Other times, I slip and say something that if I had taken a few seconds to think through would have never come out.

When I comment on blogs, I try to really think about what I write.  My goal is never to be negative or snarky on someone else’s blog.

The other night I totally blew it!!!  I wrote something on impulse (no filter), clicked publish (or whatever the button is) and immediately regretted it.  The sad thing is, you can’t delete a comment on someone else’s site.  (I did go back and type a reply saying that I was sorry and should have never left the comment I did but still…..)

I love the little reminder about thinking!!!   I try to always keep it in mind especially when I comment on other blogs because I really believe that everyone is entitled to write whatever they feel/believe on their site and it is not my place to judge or be rude.

Have you ever left a comment and then immediately regretted it?  

Happy Fun Friday!!!  I’m off to replace my filter!!!
