I have majorly fallen off the bandwagon in my eating healthy and blogging. I am just not interested or motivated lately. Ugh. I suppose that I feel really lazy these days and the holidays just have not made it much easier to eat healthy. I just feel guilty about not being more self controlled. I just need to pick up where I left off and start a new day. 

The blogging has been hard because of a lack of feeling connected to everyone. It's just not been something I have wanted to do lately. Reading blogs and commenting have been so far from my mind. Blogs are private, canceled, password protected, lost and forgotten SO MUCH these days that I feel like sifting through so many links and coming up almost empty handed is enough to make me not want to do it anymore. A lot of the pages I once read have not been updated in a year! It's crazy. 

Yup, that's my rant. 

Hopefully I can get back on the wagon and stay focused on the things in my life that were once so enriching to me. :)

I know this is also a good time for me to refocus on my time with the Lord and family. I'll be fine. :)



  1. Maria,
    One thing I have found when the blah's have attacked me, is that prayer and being still works wonders. Just get back up, and start a new day and do the best you can. You will succeed in your goals, and you will receive those sweet rewards that Jonathan has promised.
    Just do the best you can. You are only human, and we all have our strengths and weaknesses.
    Pray for strength and God will carry you.

  2. I know what you mean. We all get in funks sometimes. I also miss all the old bloggy friends and often wonder how everyone is doing. I go through phases too and then eventually I get my blogging groove back on :)

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
