i gave up blogging for my health.

as I write this, i am parked outside the YMCA dripping with sweat. my left ankle hurts, my knee doesn't feel just right and my upper leg {all of which are my left leg!} feels crazy.

but i feel great. i feel strong.
i feel like i am taking ownership for my body.

days are short. between working a busy full time job with daily schedule changes and wanting quality time with brad in the evenings, i have to choose my time wisely.

and as wise as i feel blogging daily; and taking the perfect pictures to further the post...it takes time.

so does committing to your health. preparing meals and not eating out is time consuming. working out daily for a minimum of an hour, just as time consuming.

so changes had to be made for me.

and my body thanks me. and so do all those new clothes I will need come summer. (darn!)

so. maybe I will be around a little more; maybe not. but know that while i'm away i'm using that time where i was idol in body on the treadmill or hitting the pavement, or inventing the next clean eating wonderful dinner. (right, brad? right?!)

everyone has to make choices in life.
easy and hard.

this one, even though it makes me sweat and IS hard, was easy.

so that's where I've been.

still here. just traded in blogging for the treadmill for a while.
