Doubt or Fear or Really Not Ready???

I signed up for the Blitzen's Revenge event with Op23ToZero.

I knew it was going to be harder than the GoRuck Light I did.

I was doing ok with training but I fell off the wagon.
I don't know why.
It snowed, I was recovering from my last long event, concern about shoes for the event, and a list of other excuses.

I have had issues every year trying to keep motivated and working out during the winter.
I am struggling again this year.
When I do make it in, I am having a problem pushing myself.
I am not quitting but I am not going 100%.

I made that commitment to do my daily affirmation.
One of those is that I will live in the present.
This event is in the future but it is causing me stress and worry.
Stress and worry is not something that is staying in the present.

But is it right that I am concerned? Stressed? Worried?

This is supposed to be a fun event.
What some see as fun is maybe beyond my max.

Am I going to be good enough to do this?

Do I go to the event and become a burden, a drag, like I did at the GoRuck Light.

Do I go?

Real Plans Recipe - Instant Pot French Onion Soup

Very simple soup.

I love a good French Onion Soup but never wanted to go thru all of the hassle that I see in the recipes.
I am also not a big fan of the wine in most of them.

So after seeing on a webpage/blog ( I can't remember where ), that you can caramelize onions in a slow cooker, I decided to try to do it in my Instant Pot.

I know this is Paleo but not sure what other specialty diets it fits.
Vegetarians "might" be able to use vegetable broth but I don't know how that would taste.

2 teaspoons butter
sea salt
