Are you surprised? Yea, me too. I’ve been super MIA. So MIA in fact that I think the last 3 or 4 blogs I’ve posted my first line was, ‘Sorry for being MIA’. Well, it continues.
I can’t seem to get in a groove. I’m crazy busy at work and with the recent changes in life, my evenings have been spent staying busy, seeing friends, going out and heading to the gym. Don’t get me wrong – I love it all – I just have no time for ol’ F2BF and it’s making me sad. This blog has been my baby for three years – most recently being upgraded to self-hosted, which wasn’t cheap or easy.
I know I need to get a game plan and get back in the blogging game – I will and I’m trying!
Here are some things that have been going down recently…
My best friend got married.
I booked a flight a couple weeks ago to meet my family in Florida for my sister’s 30th birthday. They all had their flights booked for a while and I was struggling to get the time off work. After pulling a few strings, I made it happen! I hopped on a plane, all alone, for the first time ever. #biggirlpants
Florida was AMAZING!! Way too short, but great to be with my whole family, as well as my friend, Brittany, and her family. I hadn’t seen my brother, Michael, since Christmas, so it was a much needed family reunion.
I returned to work on Monday and work has been surprisingly calm, which I actually don’t prefer, but I’m trying to enjoy the down time because I know it’s going to pick up again. I head back to Florida in November for a week for a work trip — Florida three times over 6 months? I’ll take it!
This week, I decided to nix the coffee and start having the Bombshell Spell instead. I don’t plan on giving coffee up, I just felt as though I was relying on it too much, so I’m trying to cut down on it. So far, so good – it’s been 6 days! Plus, I’m loving the bombshell!
I’m also trying to cut meat out of a lot of meals when possible. Again, not totally giving up, but trying to eat more veg friendly when the option is there. However, if I want some pepperoni pizza, I’m going to eat it!
Workouts have still been great, although I’m playing with the idea of working with a personal training just a few times a month to get into a routine. I need someone to kick my ass. I need to sweat hard and feel like I can barely breath again. I miss that. Is that normal?! haha
For now, my workouts have consisted of morning lift sessions and afternoon or evening cardio. I’ve been incorporating the stair-climber in a lot to get a different burn in.
I’ve been enjoying my weekend workouts, too!
Moving forward, I have a lot of fun things planned – girl’s night out at a hotel for more celebrating of Ashley’s 30th, as well as, Angela’s bach party part 2, Make a Wish – Wine and Wishes Event, heading to Royal Oak to visit a friend and see the Tigers play, a possible trip to Chi-town, a trip to CLE to see a girlfriend, Angela and James wedding, Florida…
Oh my, I’m exhausted, but excited just looking at that list!
Well, I think we’re all caught up now. I think my goal is 2 posts a week for now – I can do that!
Thanks for continuing to pop in.
Talk soon – cheers!
