Life Gets in the Way

I have started this post about a hundred times and never finished it. I have been so overwhelmed by life in general and was never able to finish a post in the manner which I thought it needed to be finished, ya know? I have unfinished blog things to do and I haven't visited any of your blogs in forever, so I felt guilty posting if I wasn't reciprocating by visiting your blogs.

Then I thought about it today and figured, to heck with it. That's life and that's what this blog is about. Life consists of missed deadlines, missed opportunities, and a whole lot of "I need tos" and "I wish I had time tos". So, here is my official apology. I haven't been to your blog and I'm sorry. I probably owe people emails, maybe even snail mails, and I'm sorry.

Whew! That was cleansing in a strange way. So, here's the rest of it. I've been struggling with running. My weekly mileage is embarrassing. But, I'm trying to dust myself off and get back out there. I have a 10K on April 16th and I'm not nearly ready. But I'm going to do it anyway. Nothing like a goal, right? I've gotten back onto the abs and weights regimen which I was severely neglecting.

So, last night it was healthy food (scrambled egg whites, roasted kale, and a banana) and lots of exercises with the kids while watching The Biggest Loser.

So, speaking of TBL, who are you pulling for? I love Hannah, Olivia, and Courtney. My son says last night, "I like Hannah the best. She's good at volleyball". So, I tweeted her the compliment and she tweeted back. It made his night. He was so excited! So, I think we are TEAM HANNAH!

Hope you are having a great week and if you are struggling like me to fit it all in, I guess we just have to do what we can, right?

Sadly, I haven't been following the show at all this season. It has become too much of a game for my liking.

GREAT POST!! Miss you :)

I am BEHIND and can rarely reciprocate, people probably think I am evil but at the end of the day I need to put my computer away and BE with with Family.. No apologies for that :)

I like Courtney, she has dimples :)

Life happens! Glad to see you back, but I think most of us understand that sometimes there's just not enough time in the day. As much as I love to blog and read blogs, it tends to be at the bottom of my priority list most of the time!
