Oh My Woooord I have finally found my breaking point. Apparently it’s topping an already hectic life with preparing for a 3 day conference in Chicago the week after returning from vacation while living in my temporary 600 sq ft apartment and working full time. yikes!
My life is in a constant state of motion. Every moment has been pretty much accounted for since returning home from vacation. The funny thing is I swear I get more creative when I’m busy. I’ve been feverishly writing down ideas so I don’t forget them. It’s like a feed off franticness. I’m insane, I swear.
Anyway let’s see if I can do a brain dumb and make some sort of sense. First of all let me tell you, after eating all the junk on vacation I’m happy to say my diet is returning to normal. I’ve been food journaling and doing my best by planning meals and being prepared. I even posted two ideas on GreenLiteBites, Spinach Salad w/ Toasted Chickpeas & Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Minted Mango and Lime Chicken on a Stick. My body welcomed some fresh veggies and I have been enjoying cooking even though I miss my kitchen. :(
Now on to the other updates. One of the reasons I’ve been so busy is because of BlogHer. If you guys remember I’m presenting twice. A geek lab session on WordPress and a talk on blogs and body image. Speaking of…
I’m totally psyched to announce… WeAreTheRealDeal.com. I know you guys are going to think I’m crazy as I already have waaaaay to much on my plate but this subject is so near and dear to my heart I feel I NEED to be a part of it. Just check out our mission statement and you’ll see why. Oh! and check my first post there, Is it Wrong to Want to Lose Weight?
ok so BlogHer… I CANNOT WAIT! Plane leaves tomorrow. I’ll be arriving in Chicago around 2. I’ve gotten a few emails about a meet up and I’m ALL for it! Problem is there’s so many darn things going on. So I’m proposing two things.
1.) A Drink! (I can totally use one. You?) :)
Thursday night seems to be my most free. The only thing I want to do is stop by the speakers reception. Other then that I’m chillin’. I’ll be at the Chi Bar around 8 for a drink. If you are in the area and want to meet up join me. Who knows maybe I can even get MizFit to stop by. ;~P Note: don’t ask me if this clashes with any events that are already planned. I’m sure there are TONS. Frankly, I can’t keep up and I’m not going to try to.
2.) A Run
Not sure if I told ya but I’m running in the BlogHer 5k on Friday. However I also want to run Sunday morning. I have 12 miles scheduled for my marathon training. I’m not sure how realistic that is but I’m really want to try to get in a nice long run Sunday morning. If anyone is up for it I’d love some company even if you only run a mile or two with me, it could be fun! :)
There’s only one problem. I have no idea where to run or if even a 6 mile stretch is possible in Chi-town. So I’m open to suggestions. If all else fails I’ll just.. well.. run and see where my feet take me but I thought I’d extend an invitation.
Besides the conference and new blog I’ve been working my butt off at my day job. Thankfully I’ve been loving every minute of it. I’m involved in some really interesting projects some if which I hope to share as they are health related.
On the new house front, it’s all coming together! They started dry walling this week and I should have a settlement date schedule by the beginning of August.
Right now I’ve got to go. It’s 11:30 and I’m not even packed yet. I hope to be blogging while I’m there. Of course I’m gravitating towards the geek sessions so I plan on posting recaps of lessons learned on RoniNoone.com. Other then that I’ll be tweeting, of course and I may even try to keep up the food journal.
ok, gotta go!
