Long Time … Why No Post

Someone hasn’t blogged in awhile. We’re not going to mention the lack of vlogging either. But the reason?

I ended up sick, which meant things got hectic. That means I fell behind in everything.

The real truth is that my bi-polar gave me a bit of a ride the past ten or so days. That means that I was barely motivated to move out of the bed for work. I’m thankful that I know the signs, and it didn’t get as bad as it could. I’m also thankful I have friends and family who help me in ways they would never understand!

Good Night

Tomorrow, I have to work. First day back after 2 days of the crud. I’m not 100% but I have a cute ass cup (with a quote I came up with!) in my favorite color ready for me to use tomorrow.

What more could I ask for?

Being Honest With Myself

Diet and workouts haven’t been the greatest, but since I got my Shakeology in the mail, I’ve had one every. single. day.

  • My IBS hasn’t had a flair-up, and I’ve put it to the test by drinking milk (it was skim, so that does make a difference).
  • Even when I’m doing butt o’clock early shifts, with little to no sleep, I have time to have a shake. If I have more time, I make it more special (currently addicted to Snickerdoodle ), but I’m fine with just unsweetened vanilla and a scoop.
  • I get hungry at a decent time when it comes to lunch. With other ones (like Carnation Instant Breakfast, even the extra protein ones), I was hungry, shaking hungry, within 2 hours. Sometimes I’m not even hungry 4 hours later, when I’m usually going on lunch. I have to force myself to eat
  • I find myself looking FORWARD to the shake!

This week, the focus will be getting small changes in my diet. I’m a calorie tracker. For me, I have to. I can’t wrap my head around the container system, but I need to at least figure out meals and things. Thank GOD for Ashley’s accountability group starting tomorrow

The 14th, I’m back on the PiYo train. I’ve found myself MISSING the workouts, but 4-5 hours of sleep lately means I’m coming home and just passing out. I just can’t do it. Though yesterday, I logged, according to my FitBit, like 97 minutes of vigorous exercise, cleaning. My shoulders are KILLING me today. But I’m not logging that as a workout. I’m being honest with myself.

Which that is a big mindset change, as well. Being honest with myself. I’ve needed to do that for a long time.

So, honestly, that was a long ass post, and I’m going to shut up now. Back to the sweaty selfies tomorrow

Long Time No Post

I’m bad about this blogging thing.

Actually, I’ve just been really exhausted. Working 50 hours this week alone, and I worked 45 hours last week! And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any easier on me anytime soon (or anyone of us).

So, I’m posting, FINALLY, again, with a warning that I won’t be steady until August. Then I’ll be working on prepping for #NaNoWriMo and I’m stupid excited for that!

Do I have an idea for it? Nope, not a clue.

But I’m ready to begin!

This Crazy Week … And Next Week! PLUS SOME CAVE PICS!


I was on VACATION. I meant to blog while I was gone but the internet SUCKED at the hotel. I couldn’t get pics to upload. AT ALL. WordPress app isn’t working on my phone, either. Issues with image uploading. Something with Jetpack. Ugh.
The lack of internet also had an effect on my ability to work out. When your workouts are online, that messes up things ?

But I did give Shakeology a try. I think I might be getting a month of it at some point, to give it a full shake but the days I had it, I found it easier to make smarter food decisions. I felt like I had more energy. And … the best part? My strange digestive system didn’t hate it! It seemed to even like it!
