The Blackout

Well, hello there. It's been a while, huh? If you haven't seen my post on my personal Facebook, I have kind of taken a little step back from the whole 'internet thing' and social media world. It really can get crazy and addictive, right? And quite honestly, I was losing myself to the madness. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and reevaluate.

So that is what I have been doing for the past couple of months. I have done a lot of praying about what is best for myself and my family. And honestly kind of getting back to WHY I started this blog and all of my posting in the first place. Sure there was the business part, but truly I wanted to be able to make a difference and also have the extra accountability for myself. I KNOW what it feels like to feel alone on your health journey even if you are surrounded by family and friends. I KNOW what it feels like when you are working your butt off and yet you are seeing no progress. That has been my life for the couple of years. So I knew it was time for some reflection.

It's funny because over the past week or so, I have been thinking even more about what the fate of my blog and the Facebook page would be. I have let them sit too long. It is time to either drop them or do something. Recently in church, we had a message all about helping others and making a difference. THAT is why I started doing this in the first place. Somewhere along the way I got so wrapped up in everything else that I lost my reason why.

So I've decided that I'm going to give this one more try. I want to be able to find a balance between sharing what I am doing, holding myself accountable and being able to hopefully help/inspire you and staying true to myself and family. I have promised myself that it will NOT take over my life again. Then there is also part of me wondering..is anyone still there? Haha :) But that's ok. Because this also gives me some extra accountability as well.

I have still been working hard but the process has been slow and maddening.  I got sick at the beginning of December and have lost some motivation since I haven't been able to workout much.

The end of the year is the perfect time for reflection and resetting. That is what I am starting to do in preparation for a fresh new year. I'm starting a new workout program. I am making this the year my nutrition finally clicks. It is a daily struggle for me. I overthink, stress out over it, and then eventually give up. Not this time. I am more than ready for a change. Now that I am finally feeling relatively healthy thanks to my naturopath, I can start focusing on other areas.

Alright...so with the new year approaching...here is to a fresh start. A fresh new beginning full of possibility. The road will no doubt be long, there will be struggle and it won't be easy, but in the end it will be worth it.
