Update and Happy Holidays

Sorry for being MIA for so long. I hadn’t planned on stopping blogging completely, but as life got crazier and crazier, I had no energy left for blogging. Thank you for checking in with me, and sorry it took so long to get back to you.

The last few months were way beyond my “regular busy and stressful,” and for the first time in many years I really struggled with making health a priority. I am now back to regular workouts and after just a few days of daily exercise, things got so much better – something I knew all along but sometimes you get to a place where it’s unbelievably hard to do your regular routine.

Through all the upheaval, we continued to have fun with the kid however, which made things so much better and which I am very thankful for.

Over the past few months, I’ve kept our food pretty healthy (no pictures though), but it was also pretty boring as I just relied on staples. I also realized once again that I am less mindful when I am stressed, which can lead to mindless eating.

Over the weekend, we were invited to a party, and I made tomato/mozzarella skewers. I don’t usually buy tomatoes in the winter, but I found some really tasty mini tomatoes and just couldn’t resist. It was nice to have a little reminder of summer on the table.

I hope things have been well with all of you, and I look forward to catching up on blogs. Blogging and blog reading has been a regular part of my life for four years, and it felt very strange to be completely removed from it.

Happy Holidays!

Be well,
