Playing Catch-Up!

A girl sits down at computer. Baby cries. Feeds baby. Girl sits back down at computer. Phone rings. Girl talks for an excessivly long time to no one worth talking an excessivly long time too. Girl realizes she has to be at work in 5 hours. Sleeps. Girl gets up, works, goes home. Rinse and Repeat

This has totally been my life as of late. Especially with the holidays just around the corner, there just aren't enough hours in the day. My "real job" as been a bit slow this week (thank goodness) so I decided it was about dang time I updated my lovely friends and readers! What have I been up to? I'm so glad you asked!!

   Fit and Free Emily : my new site is really coming along nicely. I'm waiting on some illustrations from an amasing artist, Meghan Murphy, to really pump up the awesome factor. I can't wait to see what she comes up with! Think Megahn's work looks familiar? Check out Skinny Emmie's site! Emily is not only a huge inspiration for my weight loss, but a very kind person who gave me Meghan's contact info.

Also, it is impertive that you understand how AMAZING Rita from Fitblogger is. Seriously. One day I single handedly crashed my own site. Another day I was freaking out about a color I couldn't change. Who's always there to lend a helping hand? My forever bff Rita. Go show her and the other fitblogger people some love today <3

*    Calorie Counting : yup, back on the bandwagon with some help from Spark People, I've been staying on target for the past few weeks.

   Making lots and lots and LOTS of Green Monsters. Feeling fabulous as a result!

*    Sticking to a work out plan . Um, nope. My "get up and go to the gym before work 3x a week" plan has completely fallen off the face of th earth. Did I also mention the gym is FREE? I have no excuse other than my fiance is a really good snuggler.

*    I've been actively participating in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog group. It's teaching me so much about blogging and developing my own voice. I really hope to show off these skills at the new site! Although I'm not wanting to make money blogging, it doesn't mean I can't have amazing content for all of you to read. Again, SO excited for things to come :)

So, that's the gist of it. My posts for the next few weeks will be breif and pretty plain-Jane, as I continue prepping for the new site. Thanks for all your love! Hope to see you all at Fitblog tonight!


  1. I have no excuse other than my fiance is a really good snuggler.

    Honestly, I feel like this is a really good excuse. It's nearly impossible to get out of bed early as it is, but throw in a cute, warm boy all snuggled up to you and it becomes IMPOSSIBLE.

  2. Argh, part of my comment didn't post.

    I'm cheering you on! You'll get to the gym eventually, when you're totally ready!

  3. I can't wait for the new website! And i'm excited for mine, too! haha :)


  4. Emily let me know what you think of the 31 days to the better blog! Very interesting.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - I'll try to respond in a timely fashion!
