Writing a blog and other things I'm bad at...

After some not-so-subtle reminders from family that I haven't written in a while, I've decided that I could make time for one itsy bitsy post. :)
Since it's been pointed out to me more than once that I've dropped the ball on this blog-writing thing, I'd like to dedicate this post to the other things in life I'm not-so-perfect at.
I'm bad at...
  • table manners. (Why was this the first thing that came to mind?)
  • cooking! 
  • cleaning... on a routine basis, but I'm getting better at it!
  • going to the doctor
  • spending money.  I've become such a tightwad. :/
  • making decisions. 
  • writing a diary. As a kid, I'd write in my diary, like, once every 3 months... what made me think I could write a blog??
  • resisting the temptation of a cookie or some chocolate. 
  • staying motivated
  • dancing
  • being an accountability partner (sorry, sistah!)
And the list could go on and on. Right now, I'm in need of some motivation to reinvigorate my fitness routine. I haven't been working out as much as I'd like to.  It's hard! I'm gonna go hunt down some motivation now. Pinterest here I come!
Oh, today I ran for the longest amount of time that I've ever run without walking: 25 minutes! After walking for 3 minutes, I then ran another 10 minutes straight. I think that's pretty darn good.  (I went 45 minutes total. I hope I didn't make you all think I could run 3-5 miles without taking breaks for walking! Some day!)  It was such a nice day for a run - overcast with a nice breeze.  It would be wonderful if this springtime weather would stick around. :)

  1. check out some crock pot recipes! they are simple and delicious- it does the cooking for you. :) and if you don't have a crock pot, they are relatively cheap at target.

  2. I feel bad about asking you about your blog now! You're very good at loving and caring for your clients. You definitely love your family. Who cares if you can't write in your blog regularly? We still love you. (And that motivation thing is hereditary.)

  3. I've had a crock pot for about 3 or 4 years now. I can count on... no hands, how many times I've used it. I've heard it's really easy to use, but I have yet to make an attempt. I've found some really delicious looking recipes on Pinterest that I think I'm going to try.
    Don't feel bad! I was just being silly, but thanks for the compliments. :) Think of it this way: you were a motivational factor for me to write a post!
