Life Lately anyone out there??? It's been a while since I blogged here, and I was almost ready to throw in the towel like all my old faves are doing right now - but alas, I need some accountability right now - so if anyone is still reading - I am going to start posting more regularly :) So, life lately - well, not that wonderful to be perfectly honest - Im not adapting as nicely as I would like in this new city...I havent made any friends and I am very lonely.  I am trying to tell myself that it takes some time, but man - it's really hard, especially since my husband stands on the street for 5 minutes and has made 8 friends...dudes have it so much easier.  This past weekend was super bad for reasons I am not going to share on here, well here's a hint:

 Then today...oye...let me just tell you about today:

- Rushing out of the house this morning, I couldnt find my keys - so while I am frantically digging into the black hole that is my purse - I dropped my phone into my full cup of crystal light iced tea (yes it is processed, but it is delicious) straight down into a huge cup of liquid - $HIT!! 

- So, I think I cried maybe 4 times all day...just a really no good very bad day.  And it's not about the phone obviously, I have insurance and thank goodness they are super quick with getting your new ones to you these days - the phone was just the icing on the cake...there were various other bad things that Im going to snuggle up with my book in a minute and forget the world for a while.

So, that was my craptastic day.

But, that doesnt really explain why my life is crappy right now.  Ive lost my mojo.
Yep, Im way off track.  But, I know this and Im chipping my way back.  Fridge full of veggies and fruits, and alarm set to hit the gym in the morning, plus I have this sweet girl in my cheering section :)

And...the most important part...Im starting the beginner classes (On Ramp) at my local Cross Fit gym next Monday.  I was supposed to start today, but if you knew my weekend and how absolutely shit-tastic it was, you wouldnt have started today either.  Im scared and excited and know this is about to change my life.  I took an intro class last Wednesday night, and guys, my abs are still sore from a 10 minute workout, double $HIT!! :) I took the left pic above right before I went in and was so nervous I was about to vomit!  Then the right one was the high off of realizing I completed my first timed workout and completed it in the allotted time!!  It's going to be the challenge Im looking for and who knows, maybe Ill make some friends.  Im still playing tennis, but those ladies are all in their 40s and no matter how nice you are, youre never going to be in the same life phase as someone in their 40s when youre in your 30s...le sigh.

Oooo, speaking of Le Sigh - Im reading the best book right now - Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod.  I got it at my local public library - it is one of the best books Ive read in a long time, very Eat Pray Love but dare I say, BETTER?!?  Go check it out - it will feed the wanderlust of your soul.

Ok, linking up with Ms. Wendy from the Daily Dose of Del Signore, my Motivation this Monday is to remind myself to take it one minute at a time.  That's how I did it before, and that's how I will do it again.  Plus food prepping the crap out of some food :)

Finally, I will link up with Ms. Katie from Healthy Diva Eats for:
 Im having a hard time finding something Marvelous today, which is why I love this link up - it makes you find something.  So today, my marvelous is my gorgeous baby girl and goodnight ear kisses that cause belly laughs <3

Ok folks, Ill be back, I pinky swear promise :)


  1. Pleaseeee don't throw in the towel. So many of my fave blogs I've read have cut back or stopped blogging all together so not you too!

    I fell off the wagon big time too. All the weight I lost I gained right back within a year. I started the 21 day fix last week and seem to be having good results. Let me know how Crossfit goes. As for making friends I think if Crossfit goes well you could potentially make some there! It's hard as women making friends as adults but I think you will. Too bad you aren't a little closer north to me!

  2. No towel throwing for you!

    Adjusting to a new city is one of the most difficult things to do as an adult (aside of giving birth and then raising a child). Hang in there. It took almost a solid three years of living in a new city before I really found a group of ladies I could call real friends. It takes time, and it's not always easy (or fun), but you'll find some great people.

    Keep at it with your workouts. My hubby is a Cross Fit fan, and swear by it. Can't wait to hear about your progress with the program!


If you do not have anything nice to say, please do not say anything at all :)
