Intentions vs reality

My intention in beginning the blog again was to post daily. And maybe I will still. Here I am on Day 4 of the Whole 30, still compliant and still publishing a post.

But life threw us a curve ball yesterday, a long one, and I just don't know what's going to happen going forward or how it will affect my schedule and motivation.

Family responsibilities will be greatly increased in the future. I don't like to discuss anyone's issues, other than my own, here on the blog. Suffice it to say that my husband remarked last night this was not a good time to cut down on nicotine gum OR start a diet. 

From his lips to your eyes. Or something like that.

As far as eating and activity, yesterday was good. I managed to get four miles logged, even though walking was the last thing I felt like doing. Need to put a chicken in the slow cooker, do some laundry, and DEAL with this day.

Very glad to see you writing again.

Sorry about your family situation.
Been there, probably.
(So many situations here over the years.)
Priorities and simplification.
And maybe set up a private family blog
so you can tell it once instead of hours on the phone
If it involves lots of family

Did you notice that jonathon first closed comments,
then stopped writing and eventually took his blog down?
Hopefully all is well with him.
(It feels weird to have him gone after so many years.)

Thanks, Vickie. I did notice Jonathan's blog was gone, but he and I are friends on Facebook so I'm keeping up with him. He's amazing. He ran more than 2700 miles in 2016!

I am glad I asked, because I really was wondering about him.
(Not a Facebook person at all).
