I won’t be posting much in the coming weeks…

I’ve finally accepted the fact that a) I’m in a blogging slump, and b) I can’t seem to fit it into my life at the moment. There’s only so much we can all do in a day, or even a week, which means something always has to give. At the moment, I want to focus on doing a good job at work (which takes up about 40 hours a week), spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and working out.

You read it. Working out. I’m really dedicated to becoming healthier and stronger, and I’m finally in a good mindset on fitness. Before, it always used to be about appearance for me which soured every workout I did. Now, it’s about being strong and healthy. I just became a member at a gym close to work, and I’ll be going for the first time tomorrow. I want to dedicate time to working out and having fun with that around 3 times a week, which means I’ll probably only get home at 9 PM.

I wanted to warn you all before you started questioning my absence here. I will still post whenever I can or when I feel inspired, but it will be far less frequently. This might change in a few weeks or months if I get a bout if inspiration, you never know!

Like I said, something’s always got to give. At the moment, it’s this blog for me. I won’t disappear! I’ll just be in the background for a while. I’ll still participate in things like the N.E.W.Ts readathon, but I haven’t figured out whether I’ll post updates here or simply on Twitter. Guess we’ll find out soon 🙂

  1. Good luck with the break! Sometimes a break is definitely needed and I hope you’ll kick your blogging slump soon, but also good luck with the workouts! Feel free to update us on that if you’d like because I’m extremely slacking on that front right now and maybe seeing someone else’s updates or routine might make me get it together again haha 🙂

  2. Good luck with all of your endeavors! I’ll miss your posts, of course, but I totally understand needing to take a break (I mean, I’ve been barely posting at all lately) and try and balance other things. I hope you enjoy it! I also started going back to the gym this week, with similar goals, so I am definitely rooting for you!

  3. Blogging is, and always should be treated as a secondary hobby/escape. So bravo on taking some time away to focus on yourself.

    I did the exact same thing last year. Took a couple months, got my work and my gym routine in check and when I got back to blogging I loved it more than when I stopped.

    What’s your fitness goal? Something that helped me was taking a picture of myself each month so I could see a starting point and how I was progressing from first pic to most recent. You don’t notice your body changing as you see it every day. So its nice to have that little snapshot to see how far you are coming.

    Best of luck!
