Over the years, my focus for this blog has changed. I started working on growing my readership and doing product reviews and giveaways, because I loved the blogs that did giveaways and I enjoyed doing that for my readers! After baby #2 was born, my blogging slowed down, and then with the arrival of baby #3, It really took a nosedive! (not to mention the cross country move with a 1 week old, living in a cramped apartment and then moving again into our new house!)
I think my focus has shifted again. I want to start blogging again, and I have been a little convicted to set my alarm and wake up before my kids get up. So, I am going to be getting up at 6am every morning, making my coffee, sitting down with my bible, and hopefully having a little time after to blog. I want to journal our lives. So much is changing and it's all happening so fast that I want to capture it somewhere!
Once I get into the habit of blogging again, I will start working on trying to get more product reviews and giveaways going again. My question to you readers (If there are any even out there still) is are there any products you'd like to see me review and/or give away? Any certain types of products?
I think part of my lack of blogging was because I got too wrapped around the fact that even though I have so many followers, I was lucky if I got one comment on my blog. I had to accept that fact and realize that many were probably reading in a reader, or like me just didn't have time to comment... and also just blog for myself. Not focus on how many comments I'm getting (or not getting, rather.)
So to all you who are still reading and following, thank you! I know google reader is going away, so please update your new reader (I will do a post about a few options) or subscribe to my blog on Bloglovin. The buttons for bloglovin and my feed are on the right sidebar!
Have a great Sunday all!
So I have been following the paleo lifestyle, and doing pretty good with only a few off days. I am down to 246, so I have lost 6 pounds. Not great, but not too bad. I am trying not to get discouraged because At my weight I should be losing more, and last time I did this I lost double that the first month. But I probably haven't been as strict this time around (like my daily cup of coffee with cream...haha) I have to remind myself that I am losing... slowly, but surely!
Starting weight: 252
Current weight: 246 (day 31)
Total loss: 6 pounds!

Charlotte is 4 months old, ellie turned 2 a couple weeks ago, and jack will be 4 in july! They grow so fast!
Ugh, I hate even putting that out here, but its my reality right now. I was 250 before I delivered charlotte 4 moths ago. It is heartbreaking. I could explain it away with the move, the stress, the seattle weather... but its just been laziness s on my part. I haven't been meal planning, which means we ate out more, I haven't exercised, ive turned to food in my stress and bouts of post partum depression.
But, starting today, my goal is to change that. We are all going to eat better... josh too. We are going to work on it together.
I can do this... i can do this... I did it before, I can do it again...
