If you follow me at all, you know there hasn’t been much to follow in a while. Life has seriously gotten the better of me and I have been pretty non-existent from the blog world.
Without boring you to death, I’m going to make this as short as possible. My last post was oh, in August. Not cool, Sabrina, not cool. I had no idea, just how busy the Jackson house was going to get at that point. TJ started his final two quarters at SCAD (and as of this morning is just 3 short days away from being a college graduate!) and I started my first full year with the school system.
On top of those, which can be hectic enough, we had to start thinking about life after SCAD and where were going, when and how we were getting to that point. We made plans, we started researching, and then it all changed. During our research and planning, came events, school projects and lots of time away from home for TJ, followed by holidays and a second job for me and more hours for TJ at his job. November and December seriously feel like a blur at times.
We actually started thinking that January would feel like a tiny break. We began to finalize where we would be moving, my second job ended (it was just for the Christmas season), and TJ was in the swing of his new work hours. I look back to just 10 weeks ago and can’t believe TJ is just 3 days away from being done with SCAD. Life did not slow down, and while our new home state hasn’t changed, the time frame has, so we found ourselves yet again, in another minor dilemma about where we would be heading after TJ graduates (our lease is up at the end of the month).
I can semi-breathe easy now, knowing we have found a place that has agreed to allow us to sign a short-term lease at a reasonable price, we have a moving company booked for the end of the summer and TJ is set to start a short certificate program in the fall. Now, my focus is getting a house packed in a way that will allow us to unpack as few boxes as possible for a short 5 month stay in a new apartment. This stubborn chick refuses to pack an entire house twice in 6 months. lol.
Sadly, with all we had going on, taking care of me slipped away. Workouts faded as well as healthy eating. It wasn’t intentional, but I was so exhausted by the end of the day, I wanted to relax and do nothing. And now my motivation is gone. I’m in a workout funk.
I’m hoping that’s about to change though. I signed up for The Biggest Loser at work. We’ll be competing against each other for a chance to earn some cash. Who doesn’t want to earn some cash? In all honesty though, I know based off my size, I won’t be the one to earn the money. But I figure the mere fact that I have to weigh in with the school nurse every Friday, might be enough motivation to do more and eat healthier. It runs until the beginning of May and I’m hoping it’s the kickstart I need to my butt back in gear. And I really want to get back to blogging. I enjoy it and sharing my journey to healthier me.
Thank you so much for sticking around and if I’ve sparked your interest about where we’re moving and what’s going on with us in the near future, check out this post on our family blog. I’m sure I’ll share bits and pieces here and there, but the full details will always be found there.
Have you ever been a workout funk? What did you do to get your motivation back?
