Well, hey, everyone! Long time, no see! It seems the calendar turned 2016, and I just forgot all about blogging.
Truth be told, I've been in a bit of a health, fitness, and faith rut pretty much since the beginning of 2015. Between the third trimester of my pregnancy, having M, moving, adjusting to life as a mom, and going back to teaching at a new school, I really wasn't focused on myself. I was just focused on doing what needed to be done to take care of my family and things for work.
I don't know that I'd call it postpartum depression, but I just wasn't taking care of myself, especially in the areas of healthy eating, fitness, and my faith. Considering that's what this blog is about, I really haven't had much to say on here! I didn't want this blog to just turn in to me talking about M, so I figured silence was better than "fluff" posts.
The good news is that I believe I'm coming out of that rut! I'm realizing that if I can't take care of myself, then I'm not going to be able to give 100% to any aspect of my life, which will ultimately hurt every aspect of my life. I also want to set a good example for M as she grows up, and the woman I was this past year is not who I want her to become.
With that, I will be back to blogging! My goal will be to post 3 times a week, though I will hopefully increase that to 4 times a week before the year is out. I want to ensure that my posts are quality, though, so some weeks I may not reach that goal.
This week, however, I will have 4 posts for you (including this one). Check back tomorrow where I'll be sharing about my runs from this weekend!
Question for you: How has your year started off?
Hopefully in less of a rut than mine has!
