The amazing fall weather is not too hot and not too cold. Fall is my favorite season because I crave balance and as the muggy long summer days fade, I also feel an inner balance. I want to be outside all the time, which makes riding my bike and going on a run more enjoyable. As I cleaned out the clutter in my life last month, I also tried to get rid of some of my mental clutter---mainly the voice that reminds me of all the things I should or need to be doing rather than the things I want to do. Getting to the gym is difficult when there are a million things on my to do list. I often feel guilty for taking that hour for myself when there are deadlines to make and phone calls to return at the end of the day. Slowly, I'm making that one hour a priority and as long as the temperature stays like it is, it should be a piece of cake.
