Hey! Remember me??? I have been living life and not bloggin about it! Crazy, right? I have been busy soaking up every single moment I can as a household of 3. We have just over 2 months until Ian leaves for basic training so making memories is my primary focus for the time being. We have a “vault” where we put funny moments (Ian’s bagel dance) that we can pull out when we miss each other.
Well, I want to blog more during this time also, because I am still on this whole healthier living journey thing and I need to be accountable! Easier said than done, yes? Anywho, today, I am taking a break for both of these things and joining Susan on a tour of blogland! Susan was one of my roommates at FitBloggin this year and, after getting to know her through her blog, I was DELIGHTED to learn she was just as wonderful in person. That isn’t always the case so I consider myself beyond blessed that all 3 of my roommates were great!
So, the idea of touring blogland is to get to know more about me, as well as Susan and those I invite to participate. You can follow the links from each persons post to find more and more wonderful people who live in this wonderful little online world.
About me: Welcome to my life!
1) What am I working on? Surviving??? No, really. We are going to Florida to have a going away party for Ian, he wants to see his friends because after basic training, we have no idea where he will be stationed. I am also trying daily to eat better and feed my family better, as well as preparing myself emotionally for Ian leaving. This sounds (I feel???) like I’m making way more of this than I should but OH MY WORD! We have been attached at the hip since he was born!
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre? I don’t think it does? We all face the struggles of healthy living. Our struggles may not be identical, but no matter, it is hard! Fighting being derailed, it is more mental than anything, and that is a hard battle. Where I’m not a binge eater, I don’t LOVE exercise. Someone else may be the opposite, they love to exercise, but they also binge. Either way, it is a struggle and we just need to back each other up no matter what. We are all in this together and it is just a little bit easier when you have back-up. Bottom line, the struggle is real my friends!
3) Why do I write/create what I do? Accountability. Fat lotta good that’s done me, yes? One of these days it will click. I’ve made great strides health wise, I just need the scale to equate with the healthiness, I’d be a “success story”. Also, writing things out helps me look back and see what has or has not worked, I can redo meal ideas, keep track of activities we’ve done, places we’ve been, anything a “diary” would do.
4) How does your writing/creating process work? Well, I just open my brain and dump. That is partly why I don’t write more often. When I have something to say, I say it. Otherwise, it will be radio silence here. Sorry bout that.
I did invite a couple of bloggers to join me. I haven’t heard back from them but if/when I do, I will update here and add their information! If you have a blog and would like to participate, leave a comment so we can check your blog out!
Edited to add: my brilliant friend Sarah will be doing a tour on September 1st. Go see her and see what she has to say!
