When Life Gets in the Way

So I have been away for a little while.  You know how it is when life gets in the way of the things you want to do.  That has been my life story for the last couple of weeks.  So... how have things been going?  Well it is a mixed bag.

Blogging - Duh! Obviously I have sucked at that!

Running - Though I don't blog about it; I have been running everyday.  I had a rough race two weeks ago.  Bad cramps and a lot of walking.  Still got it done.

Strength training - Yea, I am supposed to be doing that twice a week.  After 3 weeks off I got back to two days this week.  I was even still able to find my gym.

Eating - Vacation I took off from my fitness pal and just enjoyed myself tracked nothing.  Hence the race when we got back in town.  Note to self - don' do that then race.  Came back and I have been using my fitness pal and my Fitbit Charge HR.  I am 3 pounds from my goal.  It is amazing how a little accountability really makes a difference.

Work - Has been crazy busy, but with some new staff and energy we have been working on some exciting new projects.  That is fun.

Home - So my home with hubby and cats has been all a buzz with the start of hubby's school year, but has remained a calm and peaceful respite.  My extended family obligations have been raging out of control and I again find myself care taking family members due to consistently bad health/life choices.  What is different?  I stopped blaming them and started to just serve with a giving heart.  I realized their choices are not now, nor will they become my choices.  I just need to see this through with compassion.  The attitude you have going in makes a huge difference.

I dropped the judgement and picked up understanding and compassion.

So that is where I have been and where I am going.  It is going to be up and down for a while.  I will do my best to blog on the downhills.  Hope things are going well for you!


  1. <3 Life is going to full of those uphills and downhills. The bad times are what make the good times so much more wonderful. Hang in there. You are doing great.

  2. It really is great how much an attitude filled with understanding and compassion can change our perspective on things. I hope that things get better!
