I wish I could say some fancy tropical location – sadly NO!
I have been busy just being.
I recently and quickly lost 3 followers. I am down to 53, I’ve never had a lot of followers. I think it takes time and effort to cultivate it. I don’t have time for the effort
It made me a bit sad but the reality is – have I been writing, been interesting, been successful – again sadly no. I am thrilled beyond words to know there is people out there reading my blog. I hope someone, somewhere might benefit from something I do or say at some point. It gives untold accountability and a sense of community. I wish I had more time to cultivate blogging relationships thru commenting and replying to comments. Know this – If I follow your blog I AM reading it. I have noticed a trend of limited posts from other bloggers. BUT – In the end this blog is for me. It’s an extension of my brain - ha
Part of my lack of blogging is many fold. Working out 5 days a week, some at 5 am is kicking my lily white butt. My body is beat up. Life seems to be running on a busier pace lately. I am working on getting my 3 year old out more with his peers. I haven’t had anything I felt was interesting or incite full to share. I haven’t been successful with true weight loss in a long time and I feel shame and guilt. Let me spin this a different way. I am successful with exercise. I am successful with maintaining my weight. I am successful with losing inches. I am successful with my water. I am strong and fit. I kick butt in my classes. I secretly hope my trainer reads this and confirms for me – he’s not one to hand out compliments or atta boys.
At times I have to remind myself I am a mom, with 2 active boys, one being a toddler, crazy hubby schedule and I have my home (all inclusive) to care for. I may not be working but I work my ass off. I won’t go into the mommy wars here. We all, regardless of situations, work our asses off. Even through I may not be seeing a whole lot dropping on the scale, I am doing it. It being – exercising consistently, dropping inches, seeing dr’s, taking my medicine, caring for my family, my home, my health, my mental state (seeing a therapist), my mom, and so on
Stick with me!
