Hi everyone! So, do I have you all thinking you are stuck with just getting recipes from me? :) No worries, I just needed to step back for a breather and live life a little. I was feeling like blogging was taking up all my time and I am trying to find a good balance. I am still working it 100% with the BFL workouts and the Weight Watchers eats. I didn’t want to neglect you all and go MIA so I made sure to give you some recipes that I LOVE that you can use. It’s fun hearing your feedback when you make a recipe and it works ~ I am like phew! Kidding, I make and eat everything you see, but, you know, you always wonder if others will enjoy your “science projects” as much as you do.
I LOVE blogging and reading your comments and truly appreciate all the great emails you all have sent this week. They are so thoughtful and it made me realize how much you all really do care about me. I really consider my blog as a way that I can sit down and chat with you all even if it is sometimes a one sided conversation. I am good at talking to myself so I am not sure it’s much different :D I LOVED the reference in one of my emails that said, it’s like sitting and chatting with a good friend about life over a Starbucks!
I am not one who knows how to do things half @$$, yet, with a full time job plus blogging I had little time to do things like read and more importantly hang out with The Husband. I felt like I would get up ~ workout like a mad woman, go to work, work like a mad woman, come home, cook like a mad woman, sit down with the computer, blog like a mad woman and go to bed with no energy left to even read. I have been having alot of great discussions with The Husband and my friends to figure out what I can do to manage my life and time better. While I am not 100% sure of the solution some of the things I am considering are possibly having The Husband’s tidbits & wits once a week, possibly modifying my daily eats/workouts posts to be shorter and of course recipes, plus including fun events of our life, travels, our house or just randomness plus recipes and more recipes. I can put together a recipe actually quicker than I can post about my day.
No worries about me going anywhere because well you are pretty much stuck with me since I am loyal like that and all. I am just going to be mixing things up a bit to give you all daily posts yet still leave me enough time to live and enjoy life!
I think the new theme of things will be fun, but, feel free to let me know any ideas you all have. I LOVE hearing what you have to say.
