I'm on Vacation!

 Or should I say "Staycation".  Multipurpose time off.  Time to get lots of rest and get back to being "me" again.  I'm not sure where "I" went, but I seem to be coming back.  For those who aren't much into gardening, I won't bore you on this site.  For those who are interested, you can link here to my latest gardening post.  I'll do this any time I update my gardening blog.

My first week back to seriously working out was ok.  Not great.  It's a 3-pronged approach ... workouts, nutrition and encouraging other people.  Apparently I've been slacking something fierce on the third part.  The workouts have been great, the nutrition ok but my encouragement of others ... I apologize ... it's hard to enocurage others when you're stressed out and feeling like you need encouragement yourself.  And I HATE to complain.  So I tend to stay silent ... and absent.  But I have noticed that the more I encourage others, the better I feel.  So one of my goals this week is to get back to where I was....  good news tho' ... I lost .8 pounds this week!  I feel better.  My abs are tightening up again ... it's amazing how fast it comes back.

And last but certainly not least, I want to thank Jennifer at I know, right? for a great award.  Thanks Jen, you know you're awesome!  And I promise I will post specifically about this award shortly.

It's still my intent to reorganize and refresh my blogs.  I expect to have time this week.  Although I must admit it's hard to keep me indoors when the sun's out.

I believe I'm going to have to sit on our deck this afternoon (hopefully with Barry) and have a cold beverage and toast the great weather.  I just might have to do that each day this week.  Isn't that what people do when on vacation???

I've missed you all.  I'm sorry I've been away so much.


  1. Sandy, Great to have you back! Your witty posts and encourging words have been missed. Hey, let us encourage you too! Enjoy the great weather!

  2. Oooh lucky! I hope you enjoy your much-needed vacation. :) Relax as much as you can because you totally deserve it.

    Thanks for the shout out. :P You deserve all the awards in the world! xoxo

  3. Well you encourage me. I like knowing that it isn't an easy. I'm glad you get back at it a lil but I completely understand the "Where did me go?". I've been going through alot of stress too. You need a relaxation period. Enjoy it dear. I'm doing similarly that this week. Minimizing the stress. Good luck dear. I'm rooting for ya!
