Well Friends and Followers, here I am 1 year into my initial 2 year blogging experiment. I know there have been many times that I am silent. Blogging elsewhere. Not keeping up with my own site. And just being busy in this life I am trying to lead. But in tallying up what I actually did last year from the end of January until now I wrote 40 blog articles this page, several reviews of products, books, etc, about the same amount of articles for my peeps over at twiniversity. I have attended conferences, researched products, reflected on my life and tried to better myself mind, body and soul. All in all, as much as I thought I had failed you all I think I did a damn good job? I mean probably 100 separate posts either here or other sites? To me that is better than I could have imagined.
But here it is friends...I am a little less than 6 months to 40. Yup 40, with twin toddlers, a couple of jobs, and this is little blog, my passion project. I have made a commitment to many, shall we say, resolutions for this upcoming milestone.
1. Lose 40 for 40: I started Keto in October and to date I have lost about 18 pounds so halfway there. I have found some amazing groups like Weightix Warriors, Ketofy.me, many Keto Instagram starts, well stars in my mind (Girl.vs.Carbs, KetoConnect, GnomGnom, etc). I was able to reestablish my roots in the low carb high protein life in a much healthier way than the older programs out there.
I also just recently started back with my fellow Preemie Parent, ShaunT on his new program Transform:20. Its 20 friggin minutes and I am more than 1/2 way through and I am rocking it, kind of.
2. Here is a commitment that I would like to propose to you my followers... I think I can handle writing 40 articles for 40? What do you think? What would you like to hear about from the mind of Ms. Wait What? I am down. I guess here is 1, and it would be great to do 40 on my actual birthday July 19.
3. Get my kiddos up and running in life as they hit new milestones of becoming 2 and actually to doctors now actually being 2 instead of 2 months adjusted backwards. We are navigating preschool (already signed up for next fall), early intervention (which I will be delving into more in the coming weeks), and just trying to ensure they are enriched to the best of my ability.
4. Taking care of me. Learning new things (I am trying to figure out some photography so for real if you have tips we invested in a nice Nikon and the fellas are some kicking brand reps that mom gets into sometimes), working on navigating this crazy thing called life, making choices and accepting benefits and consequences.
I think that's a pretty good list. Most I am well on my way into doing. Here is 1/40, back more soon! Let me know your thoughts! Happy Days friends! Ms. Wait What will be quiet no more. I owe you much follow up to fall articles and I will deliver!
