Did you hear them?
I haven’t written a post in over 2 weeks!
Sure, I’ve been busy the past two weeks, but no more busy than usual. In fact, I’ve probably ben less busy than usual because I haven’t written in two weeks. NEver the less, when we get down to the root of it, the reason I haven’t written in two weeks is…
I just didn’t have anything to say.
That’s not to say I haven’t done things worth writing. I mean Sunday was my birthday!
But for whatever reason I’ve been pre-occupied with other things and decided to give myself a mini writing break, and that’s okay.
I think it’s good to take “time away” from things you enjoy but do all of the time so that when you return you feel refreshed and reenergized, and when I wake up in the morning with a dream fresh in my mind and all I can think about is what a great story it would make, I know it’s time for me to get back to writing.
You see, the thing is I started this blog because I had a need not a want to write. I would lay in bed at night thinking about writing, thinking about story plots and computer programs. That right there, is how you know you’re a writer. Because you can’t go to sleep because you are too busy thinking about the act of writing, not necessarily what’s being written.
I’m not saying that I’m a great writer, or even a good one, you don’t need to be to write. And there are many, many, many, bloggers out there without any writing skills what so ever (and quite possibly I am one of them). I do think, that I am a good story teller though, whether in written or spoken word, and those are the posts I most enjoy writing. Too bad for me, more often than not, those posts revolve around the disaster that is my life
This is one of those posts that doesn’t really seem to go anywhere, but the point is I am glad I took a couple weeks off from writing, and I’m glad to be back! I may stick to one or two posts/week over the next couple weeks while I’m off for the holidays, or I might go crazy and post every day – who knows!
Either way – thank YOU for stopping by and reading my nonsense on a regular basis. Without you I certainly wouldn’t be able to do what I do, and for that I am forever thankful! <3
I’ve had the opportunity to try Energy Bits a few times over the past year or so. The company was kind enough to sent me a small tin of bits on two separate occasions so I have had the chance to try them out in a couple different ways before writing this post.
Energy Bits are made up of spirulina algae which is a super duper super food . It has been declared the most nutritious food in the world by The World Bank, The United Nations and NASA just to name a few but don’t take my word for it – read about all the health benefits of spirulina yourself and you be the judge!
NASA feeds algae to it’s astronauts and says, “1kg of algae has the nutritional equivalent of 1000kg of fruits and vegetables.” <–That right there, mind blowing.
I saw an interview last week with a dietician that said in the future we will be eating more and more seaweed/algae as more and more of the nutrients are stripped from the earth while there is an abundance of nutrients found in the ocean!
But let’s get real for a second. Eating algae takes some getting use to. The flavour is pretty dang strong, and that can turn a lot of people off right from the get go. That’s why Energy Bits are such a great option. You can swallow them whole (like you would a pill) without tasting them at all! The benefits of algae without the taste? Sounds good to me!
One thing I really appreciate about Energy Bits, it that in one 30 tab serving you are only consuming 30 calories, no additives or chemicals and are getting 5g of protein! Which leads me to my favourite use for Energy Bits. I’ve taken them before teaching classes, before (and during) long runs, and I’ve used them on mornings when I simply didn’t have time for a proper breakfast. And while a 30 calorie breakfast certainly isn’t ideal, when it’s that or nothing I’ve found that one serving gives me enough energy to get through my morning class and then I can have something more substantial afterwards. These bits have saved me on more than one occasion from starving through a morning class, so I always make sure I keep some on hand for those breakfast “emergencies”
If you are looking for a natural, high quality food to add into your diet take a look at Energy Bits - especially if the taste of seaweed/algae has put you off in the past, this is the ideal way for you to get the benefits without the taste!
