Weekly Wrap: Unplugged

After running around for the past two weeks feeling a little like a chicken with my head cut-off, this week was all about recharging.

I started the week by joining a friend on Monday for dinner and a screening of the film Walk with Me. The film follows Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and explores devoting one’s life to mindfulness. I found it fascinating and a great way to begin my unplugging. (You can view the trailer here)

The next morning J and I got out of town to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and it was a great chance to leave the demands of to do lists behind – including the training plan. While I did get some running in and time on the Arc Trainer, the workout highlight was time spent hiking the trails.

I’ll be doing my best to hold onto my zen by hitting my yoga mat this afternoon before returning to regularly scheduled programming 🙂

When was the last time you took some time to unplug?

As always, I’m joining Holly & Tricia for the Weekly Wrap. Be sure to stop by and show these ladies some love.



  1. Congrats on your anniversary!! That is really something to be proud of. I love that quote too! Unplugging and enjoying downtime is really important. It’s also something that I could do much more often!

  3. Congrats on the milestone anniversary! I actually unplug often. It is not uncommon for me to skip a day each week (sometimes two) and stay away from all social media. Thanks for linking!

  4. Sounds like a great week – especially the time away. I don’t unplug enough, that’s for sure.

  7. Happy Anniversary! I’m so glad you two had a chance to get away together. I’ve been kind of unplugging every other day lately. More because I have to rather than want to. Mindfulness is always a good thing!

  15. I desperately need to unplug. It’s been so intense the last few weeks, and will likely continue like this for a few more weeks. But my mind and body is just calling to be “reset” for a bit… Happy 25th Anniversary! What a great milestone x
