I Fell Off The Daily Blogging Bandwagon

on December 13, 2015

Well, it didn’t take long for me to get back into my bad habit of irregular posting.  NaBloPoMo ended November 30 and so did my daily blogging.  It’s been 9 days since my last post 😦  I really thought I would be able to keep it up, but seems not.  It wasn’t for lack of time. I had lots of opportunity to write, I just couldn’t bring myself to actually do it.  Hopefully I didn’t overdo it in November and use up all my posts!  LOL

The last 9 days have been pretty much on par with all the days before.  Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on:

I’ve been CrossFitting 4 times a week…and absolutely loving it.  I’m really liking the programming lately.  Well, “liking” might be the wrong word for it.  The workouts have been hard and challenging, and leaving me feeling exhausted, but accomplished at the end of class.  So awesome!

This month’s member challenge at the gym in to drink at least 2.5L of water a day.  I’m doing well and some days even drinking more than the required amount.  On days when I CrossFit I have no problem hitting the goal and usually go over.  On days that I don’t go to the gym, it’s a bit more challenging and I end up drinking a lot of water later in the day and evening and I’m feeling it at night when it wakes me up to pee!  I had finally started to sleep through the night again, and now all this water is impacting that.

I’ve still been reading.  I’m up to 35 books read this year.  I just finished Judy Blume’s “In The Unlikely Event” and I’m just starting “Me Earl and The Dying Girl” by Jesse Andrews.  I don’t know much about it, and I can’t remember where I heard about it.  Apparently they are making a movie out of it.  Hopefully it’s good.


I’ve got a busy week ahead:  Orthodontist and hockey for senior kid tomorrow, Christmas musical performance for junior kid Wednesday, 4 CrossFit classes and parties Friday and Saturday night.  I tried to plan a menu for the week, but it was tough with so many nights out.  In the end we just bought a lot of sandwich meat and a variety of breads and it will be panini central around here this week.  I do have tacos and eggs in purgatory scheduled as real meals on two nights, but the others it’s self-serve paninis.

I’m hoping the week flies by quickly.  I just want it to be Friday so I can see my friends Paula and Ron and their kids Alanna and Gabe, who are here visiting for the holidays after moving to Australia last year.  We’ve texted, emailed, and talked on Skype over the last year, but seeing them live and in person will be amazing.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!

Here’s to a quick week!  Hopefully I manage a few posts this week.  Fingers crossed.

See you Friday, Paula!!!
