Faith Fitness and Laughter

Ready to go!

on March 13, 2014

Well hey there!  How’s your week going so far?  I have two weeks remaining at my current position and it seems to be going by really fast, but I am so excited to start my new journey.   I actually had the opportunity to start training this past Saturday and really enjoyed it!  I was able to see where my desk will be and met some of the staff that I’ll be working with.  Smile

Change is scary, but it can also be exciting.  I think that even when it’s scary, there is a sense of excitement. 


One of the other changes that I have been contemplating is a change here on my blog.  My life is going in a completely different direction lately and I want this place to reflect that.  Oh I want it to incorporate my faith, fitness and laughter, but I also want it to incorporate more.  Things that women my age are faced with while living in faith and fitness and laughter. 

Just something that I have been thinking about. 



I picked up some chicken burgers the other day at the store and I love them!  As you can see, I also like pickles!


The other day on my way home from work I stopped to take this picture…



I pass this house twice a day going to and coming from work and I have never stopped to look at it.  I noticed the flowers and how they were in a straight line and I thought, “you know, someone must have planted them that way.”  Then I noticed, of course, that no one obviously lives there and hasn’t for a long time and I thought how much history must be there.  That someone took the time to plant the flowers that way.  I wonder how it looked when it had someone living in it.  I think it’s quite quaint if you ask me. 





So I am about to get my sweat on and I thought I forgot to tell you what else is going on at work!  We are doing this really cool fitness challenge called Blue and You Fitness.  It’s through the insurance company that we have and I love it!

You first sign up for the challenge by joining a team.  I joined a team that is nearby where I live and will be working called, #No Excuses.  You then commit to work out for 30 minutes a day and by doing so you earn points! 

So as you can probably guess I am about to get my sweat on…



queue chocolate….  lol!   We had a customer come in yesterday morning and drop off some chocolate.  We love our customers!  Of course we waited to dig into them because it was still morning.  Okay…..Who am I kidding….we tore into them!! 



I just ask that you bare with me.  There are lots of changes going on in my life right now and I want it to reflect in my blog.  I just don’t know what that looks like yet.  I want to post more and lately I just don’t find it exciting nor do I have a lot of time to do so anymore.  I am hoping that when things settle down at work and I get on more of a routine I will have time to do so.

Hang in there with me. 


Don’t forget to work out today!!  And drink water.  And hug somebody.  And wave at a stranger.  Stop to take a picture of an abandoned house.

Have a good day!!


Question for you bloggers:  How do you balance blogging and life?  Especially when life gets crazy??



P.S.  I found this brownie in a mug recipe the other day that I’ll be sharing with you soon!!

    Wait, how did I miss your new position?!?! Congrats! I think our blogs are the perfect places for reflection and can’t wait to read about your journey!

    • Thank you Laura!! The company I work for was bought out by another company and I ended up not being retained. Thankfully, it worked out and I applied for a different position, in a different department. I am really excited about it and I am looking forward to the change 🙂

    By going easy on myself. Sometimes I have plenty of time to blog and sometimes I don’t…both are just fine. I do try to post on the same days each week (mon/tues/thurs now) so that if I have free time or can make free time, I shoot for those days to get some blog stuff done, but if I don’t have the time or the heart to blog, then I let it go. We’ll still be here when you can post 🙂

    Life is constant change, so it’s best to embrace the changes rather than try to keep everything the same. So, good for you…good luck with your changes! And balance is always hard, so I have no advice other than be easy on yourself.
