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 :)

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

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…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
