Life has just been SO AWESOME lately that I need to share a few things with you all!
The post-BEA hibernation
BookExpo America was exhausting. Awesome, but exhausting.
I think it’s really easy to see when BEA started:
- Wednesday: 12,424 steps
- Thursday: 18,322 steps
- Friday: 17,121 steps
And on top of that, I was waking up at 7:30am every day, which may not be as early as some people over BEA, but it’s early for me! My typical wakeup time is 10am!
So on Wednesday morning (the day after I got home) I slept in until 11:30am, giving me a total of 10.5 hours of sleep! If that’s not a post-BEA coma then I don’t know what is.
I’ve become a fitness monkey
My fitness calendars for April and May. The dots indicate a day that I exercised. In May I started colour coding, where yellow means strength training and red means cardio.
Over the last two months I’ve become a completely different person! I’ve talked a little bit about my Couch to 5K journey before, but things have gone to a whole other level.
Not only have I basically finished C25K (I have one day left!) but I’ve also incorporated strength training into my routine.
Now I’m just working on perfecting my diet. It ranges from good to questionable and I need to be more consistently on the “good” side.
I’m just really proud of myself for coming as far as I have, and I know I still have a long way to go, but I’m looking forward to the journey! That alone says a lot, because I used to be the girl who would avoid exercise at all costs. Who’d have thought I’d end up loving it?
Maybe in a few more months I’ll post some “before” and “now” pictures so you can see how much this journey has changed me physically.
P.S. I got those new workout pants (in the photo at the top) while I was in New York. I LOVE THEM!!

But sometimes it’s hard to keep up
As awesome as life can be, it can also be a bit overwhelming. I feel like I’m trying to accomplish SO MUCH right now and it’s just hard to do it all. For instance, here are some of the things on my plate right now:
- Re-coding UBB (psst, you can demo the new version)
- Doing client work
- Code my email subscription/newsletter plugin and post it for sale
- Make some updates to Novelist
- Release some free WordPress themes with Anna
- Write an e-book
- Re-code some of my older themes
And I’m sure I’m forgetting stuff…
There’s so much I want to accomplish and I can’t find time to do it all. Sometimes it’s frustrating because I feel like I’m making no progress on my master to-do list!
