I don’t really know where to being to explain my absence. I’ve taken a step back from blogging and other things to focus on reorganizing my life. Lately, I’ve been struggling to keep myself sane. Lately, I’ve felt as if I have too much to do and no time at all. I needed to take a step back and reassess what was important in life. I realized that instead of setting time frames and deadlines for myself, I need to set goals. I also needed to realize that it’s ok if I don’t meet the goals right away and that it’s ok to have long term goals. Setting unrealistic deadlines is a surefire way of setting yourself up for failure and that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing to myself. Now that I’ve taken some time to reassess and readjust, I’m ready to start crafting again and writing to you all again.
So for the past 2 weeks I’ve been very busy. I’ve been spending a lot of time with my family and also spending a lot of time exercising. I am determined to lose some weight before the summer. I am heavier now than when I was pregnant with my daughter. When we moved into this apartment last October, the kitchen needed to be remodeled. The process was long and we had no access to a kitchen to cook. We were basically forced to eat takeout every day. I pretty much gained 50lbs overnight. I was so disappointed with the way I looked but I am now determined to get my body back. I guess I’ve been pretty much down about my weight as well as other things going on in my life. I sulked for a while and then decided to do something about being down. I am trying my best to have a positive outlook and work on moving forward instead of dwelling on the past.
Now that I’ve depressed everyone, let’s talk about positive things! =)
I was nominated by a new follower for the Blog Leibster Award! How exciting! I have a separate post coming up that explains what the Leibster Award is.
I also have some new items in my Etsy shop. I have some new items for Easter and the spring and a giveaway coming up for Valentine’s Day! Things are looking up and I have to make sure to focus on those positive things. I am so happy to be writing on my blog again and I can’t wait to start cooking and crafting again!
