So, you may (or may not) have noticed I haven’t been blogging lately. Life has been traveling at a million miles a minute, and I’ve been doing everything I can to just breathe and take it all in. I feel like it was April just yesterday, and now it’s JUNE!!
I’ve honestly really missed blogging. I keep blog topics in a note on my phone, and I’m really excited about a lot of them, (still to come: how to survive flying solo with a baby) I just have no time to actually sitting down and write. I’ve been giving myself a hard time about it, and today I realized I just need to free myself from my own expectations. I started blogging for fun, and when it feels like work, then it doesn’t bring me as much joy.
These next few months are going to be some of the most busiest, and I probably won’t have a ton of time to sit down and write, (I probably won’t have a ton of time to sit down, period…) so for now, I’ll just say, life is good. It’s busy, and full, and exhausting, and sweet, and hard, and fabulous. How it can be all of those things at once, I don’t know, but it is.
I know some of my goals for April were totally not met, (although I will say I succeeded in giving up TV during Knox’s naps! It was glorious.) and I’ve decided that’s ok. Every month I vow to read more, and every month I realize having a baby means it’s just not realistic right now. Even when I do actually sit down to read, I get so sleepy, it ends up in a nap or an earlier bedtime. (Which I’ve decided is TOTALLY fine. Let’s be real, more sleep = a happier me.)
And although it didn’t really happen until the middle of May (ok, the end of May…) I’ve finally kicked sugar + gluten. I’ve decided to give myself a cheat meal every once in a while so I don’t go crazy and eat a whole bag of Sour Patch Kids (you know, the big bag…) but I already feel better! Stuart and I also started doing P90X3 (the kill-yourself workout, jam packed into just 30 minutes!) a few weeks ago, and I’m loving it! I’m not gonna lie, there are times when I really hate Tony Horton (and I never would have thought I’d hate a Horton!) but he knows his shtuff. I’m excited to see how my health + fitness are transformed over the next 60-something days. (The program is for 90 days.)
So that’s me currently. A tad crazed, but happy.
