Random Thoughts on a Thursday

I’m loving the month of April, and not just because it’s my birth month. (Okay, well maybe that’s part of it) I’m still on a high from the weekend festivities and I’m having a lot of fun reaping the benefits of my birthday with various excursions and time with friends. SANY3568SANY3569I had a conversation with an old friend yesterday who said I seemed like myself for the first time in a long time. It was such a good thing to hear and I’m absolutely feeling it. I’m in a great headspace and I’m surrounded by a lot of positivity, wonderful people and fun things, like lunches in the park.  SANY3566 SANY3565~~~
In totally unrelated news… I saw this at someone’s apartment a few weeks ago and just about died laughing.

It’s been nearly a year since I went off the pill and I don’t miss it. In short, the pill made me crazy. Like really crazy. And for a long time I just thought the crazy was “normal” (do you see a theme here??) It was amazing to come off the pill and return to a much more normal state. I haven’t looked back since. If you’re anything like me and the pill made you crazy, check out the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility, the Justisse website or the amazing workshops run by the lovely ladies at Red Tent Sisters.

Coming up in the next couple weeks I’ve got some at-home workout suggestions with the beautiful Laura from
Fit Chicks, details on my experience going 5 days with Superfoods and 3 days with smoothies as well as some thoughts on moderation and the idea of “enough”. Is there anything you would like to see/talk about?

Have you had any random thoughts today?
How is your month of April so far?
How are you doing for activity? So far I’ve got 9 stickers on my calendar and adding a 10th tonight!! I will be making a
new activity chart for May because I miss them!!

Last but not least… a quote that accompanied the my birthday page in my planner: Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. (Henry Van Dyke)

That's a great quote. I'd love to see whatever you decide to talk about. Have a good day!

My random thought is this. We are both bloggers. How come we never take photos when we go out?

Was so fun to see you on Tuesday!

I'm proud to say that I'm really rocking the activity lately! :)

I'm glad your April is going well!

I had a very similar experience with the pill. I was on it for 7 years. Only after coming off did I realize how crazy it had made me. Reading about your experience made me feel like it wasn't just me.

I definitely feel like a new person now! And I will definitely be checking out that book. :)
