My Lenten Focus

Happy Monday!!

First I wanted to thank everyone who sent me support regarding my last post.  I always forget to reply to your comments, so thank you all!  I am feeling much better about everything and I am back on track mentally and physically.

Next, I wanted to let everyone know that I am taking a short break from blogging.   This is just for Lent.  No, I am not "giving up blogging for Lent"  lol  I am just adding different things in my life during Lent, and I need to take a break from other things.   I am doing 2 online Lenten studies, my sister and I are doing a Book Club/Study on The Prodigal Son,  work is crazy busy making room for all of all the snow cancellations we have had recently,  and I am really busy with Choir since we will be singing all Holy Week and learning new songs.  I just feel a little overwhelmed and need to focus in on my weight loss and Lent right now.   I am stopping a few social media things too, because I love them and I can spend 30 minute easy on them and not even know it, and still want more lol   Also,  I am  stopping the gym.   I realize that I need the gym for weight loss, but it is only stressing me out and that can't be good :)

Any ways, I will probably be reading up here and there on all the blogs that I follow, because I will miss hearing about all the food struggles, etsy shops, bike rides, dogs, kitties, runs, hikes, babies, new boyfriends and husbands...But it just wont  be every day. :)

So, I hope you all have a wonderful next couple of weeks.  I hope you continue to focus in on whatever you have going on in your life right now, but also make sure to make time for some ME time too!

I will see you soon!
