Where have I been?

That is the question.

Here are the top 10 things that have kept me from blogging.

10. The temperature. I'm cold. It's cold here. It's cold inside my apartment, we have a tiny heater. And my fingers are way too cold to type anything resembling sentences. Here is evidence. We took the kids out the other day. And yes, I realize it's June. But still, Brrr......

9. I'm teaching my cat some new tricks. Like how to stay off the kitchen table, how to hide from a preschooler and a toddler and how not to sleep at the foot of the toddlers bed. It's slow going.

8. I've been reading. Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins. Excellent book by the way.

7. I've also been listening to CDs. Not just music, but "Get the Edge" CDs by Anthony Robbins. Highly recommend. If you have never heard Anthony Robbins speak or read anything by him, I suggest you go immediately to the store and buy something. Go now. I can't wait for you. Just do it. You won't be sorry.

6. I have not been drinking cokes, or eating crappy foods. Well, except for my birthday (June 16) I did have some food that would fall into the crappy category. It was good though.

5. I've been visualizing the beach. We are getting ready to return to the United States. First up, Florida.

4. I have been coloring, painting, cutting, pasting, reading, running, and practicing writing letters with my kids.

3. I have been on Twitter.

2. I have been working on my cardiovascular health.

And the number one reason I have been unable to create a blog post:

1. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. She has shredded my muscles down to the very bone. I could not lift my fingers to even type the word hello. I invite you to get the shred dvd and hop to it. This chic is hard core. And I am totally not lying to you when I admit that the second day, after trying her workout, I could not walk. I could not sit. And yes, I whinced, in pain for most of the day.

But now that I am 17 days into it, I LOVE her. Anyway. I just wanted to let you know where I was. And also one more teeny tiny thing. I need a break. I've been blogging for quite some time. And right now, I just need to take a little blog vacation. So I thought I'd let you all know that too.

I'm sure you guys may have been there before. Ever? Anyone? Bueller? Well, that's where I'm at. Please feel free to follow me on Twitter. I have an account there, and I check in often. I have a link there on my sidebar to the right. Feel free to give me a shout hello. :) :)

Hope to see you all again soon. Ciao~~~

I have missed you on blogger but LOVE that I see you on twitter each day. :o) That blows that it's so cold where you are. Girl, it's a miserable heat wave here. Were talking in the 100's over the weekend.

I have got to get that DVD just kinda putting it off for as long as I can because she is going to kick me while I'm down, I just know it. :o)

I totally understand what you mean about needing a blogging break. The little one that I kind of took last month was very refreshing.

Wow! You made it to day 17 on the Shred. I am so impressed. I could only get to day 6 before I thought I was seriously going to die. You go girl!!

If your not here I think that coloring is a great second! Your really dedicated to upgrading yourself, keep up the great work.

I think I may need to try the Shred...... and since you mentioned Florida, go check out the slide show on my blog from my trip last week.... it will make you yearn a bit more and feel like you're there!

Shannon said...

I totally understand the need for a break... I'll definitely be checking in with you on Twitter!

I'm getting back into working out with Jillian... it's been awhile since I last did the workout, so I'm back to cursing and yelling at the TV!

Heck yeah I've had to go on blog hiatus from time to time. I'm good for hiding from my blog about once a month. For about a week. Sometimes life gets going and that takes priority!

I am stopping by a little late, to give you a big welcome to the SITSahood! We are so glad you joined us ad look forward to seeing you around.

I can't imaging it being cold anywhere in June. Well, it is now July & 100 degree weather in Mississippi. I can't wait for the cold weather.
