It’s been way too long since my last post, and I am so sorry! Time definitely got away from me as did a few of my priorities. Since it has been a while, I wanted to take this moment to talk about what I have been up to.
This year, I was off to a shaky start as work was very busy for the first few months, so it was also mentally draining. I work in a fast paced environment, on a team where I frequently need to be the spokesperson for my own development. This can be rather exhausting and unsatisfying. As I leave for the day, I don’t have that warm and fuzzy feeling that comes along with a sense of accomplishment, and it only makes beginning a new day even harder. I definitely want to discuss this in another post as it is a much more involved story than how I am currently describing it, but I think we could all benefit from dissecting our careers and expectations during our 20s.
Outside of work, I was then forced to reevaluate my priorities for the year based on the amount of time and energy I had left. I channeled my energy into two things, fitness and reading. I really increased the intensity of my workout regimen, which has also become more of a habitual routine rather than forcing myself just to be there. I started a new 4-week program, and I focused on incorporating new tools and supplements in order to see results. Once I adjusted my eating habits to eat 5 smaller meals per day, my momentum was even stronger. I needed my summer bod much earlier this season as I was headed off to Mexico in April. I’ll be sharing more details about my recent confidence boost in another post.
Any other additional time I had outside of work, I devoted to reading or catching up with friends. I set a goal for myself this year to 17 books (in 2017), so I’ve had to crank through a few library books at warp speed. A few of the books I read, I will definitely be sharing more info on as a few of them are related to either developing myself or my relationships.
I have to admit, I am rather ashamed that I let this blog get away from me for the last two months. I appreciate your kindness, and I am so happy to be back.
