The update on life blog

I must apologize for my absence from the blog.  My life has gotten really crazy.  The responsible blogger thing would have been to stock pile post and have something already in the queue.  I like to blog organically and where as some posts are planned, I do most of my posts based on what I feel like is itching to be talked about that day.  Therefore, I haven’t been around.  Here is an explanation in this video:

My mom had knee replacement surgery so any extra time I’ve had has been spent taking care of business.  The days have been long and stressful and honestly, I’ve just been stretched really thin.  I’ve been trying to keep things moving smoothly.

Just finished teaching my class and now I'm stretching. It's an important part of working out. Do you always stretch? #fitfam #fitfluential #sweatpink #holidaysweat #ffcheckin #webeatfat #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fitness

I’ve also kind of been battling some “injury.”  I don’t know what’s going on but it’s a foot/ankle issue that has kept me from running the way I want to run.  I struggled last week at the Turkey Trot to finish a 10K and I’ve been taking it really easy since then and now I’m just resting and stretching. Do you get in the right amount of stretching after your workouts? I may or may not have been slacking on this.

My foot is a little sore and my shin hurts when I #run. I'm pretty sure this problem is connected. Haven't been able to run full pace since Tulsa. Thinking it was the hills (cause I'm not use to that) or that bad trip I had walking back to the car after t

I’ve been icing like no one’s business.  Normally I wouldn’t care but this weekend is Rock n Roll San Antonio and I really want to be able to run it.  Tomorrow I will make the appropriate decision on whether to marathon or not but today I’m still hopeful.

So what’s the deal with this vlogmas thing?  I am making a video everyday until Christmas.  Some of the videos will be silly and some of the videos will be useful content to you and the blog.  The main goal is to get me creating and thinking everyday.  I’m really trying to push myself to the next level and really build something special for all of you guys.

As for the blog, I’m still here and I’m still blogging.  Things will settle back to a normal routine very soon.  It’s just when life gives me some curve balls there is a period of adjustment.  It takes me a minute to be able to adapt to the new normal but I’m getting there.  I promise.

Have you done your Christmas shopping yet?
