When you don’t do something for a long time you being to miss it. Then you try and get back to it, then something pops up. That’s how I have felt with blogging lately. I really, really, miss writing my thought here. I miss sharing all the exciting times with Breck here. I miss sharing my weekly running updates, goals, and workouts here. I am going to make the blog part of my life again. I know I will be thankful one day when I look back and reread old posts.
I have noticed that happening with other blogs I read in the past. I like to blame Instagram for killing the blogging world. It is so much easier to snap a picture in the moment and share it with the world right away. I am guilty of doing that! I don’t get my nice camera out as often as I should. Again, that is something I am going to make part of my life. I have even started leaving the camera out so I can quickly grab it to take candid shots because those are my favorites.
So much has changed since my last post 4 months ago. Breck is now 10 months old! He has four teeth, crawls and furniture walks, yells as loud as he can, dances to his favorite songs (Flo Rida’s GDFR, every kids favorite, right?!), and makes me smile every day. He says “hi”, “uh oh”, “dada”, and we are working on mama! He waves bye and loves looking at himself in the mirror (I have no idea where he gets that from!) He gets super crabby if he doesn’t get his long naps, and I have never seen a baby get so hangry! He loves to not listen to us and do his own thing! He is a great baby and I am so lucky to be his mama!
I have left my dream interpreting job that I worked at for two years. I went back to work part time after I had Breck, but my job wasn’t typical 9-5 and everyday I had a different schedule, traveled all over locally, and it became very stressful. I would find myself getting upset if I had to work at a job until 5 on the whole other side of town, meaning I wouldn’t get home until 5:45 or 6. I loved that job but the perfect oppurnity popped up and I worked so hard to get it. I am now doing video relay interpreting and freelancing in the community when I can. The best part is I can pick when I want to work. I am able to spend a little bit more time at home with Breck! I worked so hard to get here, with all the road blocks that came my way, and I feel so proud of myself for never giving up. I am so happy in my career!
With that said, I still have my personal training certification that is just collecting dust. With my new schedule I have more time to start working on building my business. I have tossed the idea around of starting an online training option. I have something I need to figure out before I jump into it. I have so many ideas in my head that I need to write out to see if they can be made a possibility!
I am getting back to running. I have weeks that I will run three times and then I will go two weeks without a run. I am working on making it a habit to getting out early in the morning once or twice a week. I always feel good after I run but I dread the heat! I am thinking of joining a running group to help with my lack of motivation. I am signed up for a half this fall and I cannot wait to race again! I was very sad not to run the Pig this past May. I have been going to the gym twice a week (or I do the workout at home if I can’t make it to class). In my last post I mentioned I wanted to get some muscle tone back, which is still a work in progress.
This post wouldn’t be complete without pictures to update everyone! I am looking forward to getting back to what I love. I hope I can gain some new readers, as well as connect with my old readers!
