Well, if we're friends IRL, or if you've been reading for awhile you may have one or two ideas: math, dancing, driving while having a conversation...yes, I do kind of suck at all of those. But what I'm talking about at the moment is a theme that seems to keep coming up over and over the last few months. What I'm really, really terrible at: balance. Not just the balance involved in getting from point A to point B (another flaw of mine which accounts for the sexy bruises and scrapes on my legs) mostly I'm talking about life balance.

Inevitably during the school year, between work/class/studying/blogging/fitness/socializing and my favorite: household chores... something -or several somethings- that are important to me start to fall by the wayside. At the beginning of spring semester it was physical fitness that got kicked to the curb. It was so easy to let that go in favor of studying while catching up on my DVR (hello, multitasking!) ...but of course on top of beginning to outgrow my favorite jeans, being a couch potato made me feel pretty generally like crap. Thankfully, joining -and actually committing- to the Revolt workout program turned that around: staying in shape can't help but be a major focus with 5 scheduled workouts a week plus a run or two. Physically I feel awesome, and my thinning hips are starting to show my hard work. But since school and the j-o-b are non-negotiables, and a girl's got to get out of the house once in awhile, it's blogging that's taken the hit the past couple weeks.
I love checking in with you guys on the daily, commenting on your posts and throwing my two -sometimes five or ten- cents out there into the internet, so I hate not always being able to make this little hobby a priority. And blogging's not the only thing that's been on the back burner lately...if you could've seen the state of my house a couple days ago...em. barrassing. And Travis basically dragged my butt out to our "white trash" back yard yesterday to help him take care of our 3 foot lawn and some seriously dangerous looking weeds.
For the moment, I think I'm sort of getting back on track. House is clean, Anatomy notes nearly caught up, workout for the day done and I've even managed to give myself a desperately needed manicure and order some adorbs new heels from Lulu's with one of my birthday giftcards. Oh yeah, did I mention I had a birthday the other day? Not such a big event when you're turning 29 yet again, but the hubby surprised me with a new MacBook
so he doesn't have to keep listening to me complain about my crappy old Dell because he's the sweetest, and I had a delish pre-work birthday breakfast with the girls, including a surprise visit from my out-of-town (and adorably prego) bestie.
|I can always count on Chris for a pic or two :-)|
So...things are good, but things are busy! I'm not complaining, but I am so ready for summer break!
How are things with you guys? Are you keeping your balance this spring?
