Excuses Excuses

Last night I ran in to a friend I hadn't seen in awhile.  "Are you still blogging?" she asked.  My immediate inclination was to say "YES!" because in my head I blog all the time (a phenomenon that only those who write will understand) and if you could come behind the scenes here at "Finding Amy...Again" you'd see that I've written plenty of posts (they all just happen to still be in Draft form).  

The actuality, of course, is that I've not posted anything here for over a month so the honest (and embarrassing) answer I had to give was "No, not really."  I followed it up, however, by an equally honest (and equally embarrassing) response of "But I'm going to get back into it soon... I'm revamping it so that it looks better and reaches more people...blah blah blah."

This is sounds vaguely famiiar doesn't it? I've said it here before and I've definitely said it in relation to my weight loss/health/journey. And while I feel bad about it, this is how life goes sometimes.  Parts of your life sometimes give way to other parts of your life. While the truth is that  my plans really have been to change and improve the blog, I haven't had much time to dedicate to it or my health lately.  And, the blog revamp, like the health journey, takes time and dedication to be successful. that I am unemployed (by choice, more on that later....) I will have lots of time to do it and I can't wait to really make all aspects of this work.

In the meantime I will be right here working on editing all those Draft Posts  (and deleting a few) as the stories of my summer weight gain will be easily overshadowed by the emotional eating I succumbed to over the holidays.  So stay tuned for the roll out of our new look which I hope to roll out upon my 39th birthday -  have seriously big plans for positive change in my 40th year! 


  1. You are most certainly in good company. I love my personal blog. It keeps me sane (and the lack of posts in my RSS shows my current state). Regarding my never-ending battle with the scale, some ladies and I are supporting each other via email with a "challenge" of sorts going until later in March - if you are interested in joining us, let me know. I know some are working with EAT!'s program as well.

  2. Thanks for the support! Blogging about my journey definitely is like therapy for me - and keeps me honest! I'd love to be a part of your e-mail "challenge" - being accountable and inspired by others is a huge motivator for me! You can reach me at I'll also be at EAT! on Saturday for the Take Back Challenge kick off if any of the others are there I'd love to meet them!
