July in Retrospect

I went into July thinking I would have more free time to attend to writing and sharing here, but as you can see, I was wrong and my unintentional hiatus has lasted a whole lot longer than I thought possible. So far, our summer has been filled with late nights and early mornings, crazy work schedules (which you all know is nothing new) and trying our best to squeeze in time with friends and family. We still haven't had a chance to break away and go on vacation, but next month looks more promising.

It's hard to believe that another month has faded away so quickly. I didn't get as much accomplished as I had hoped, but it's all good. Much to my surprise, I haven't been going into total slug mode on my days off anymore. Ever since Lauren moved back in June, I've been spending a lot more time out and about with her and her kids. The hubs and I have been going out more too. So, between coffee/breakfast dates, girls nights, thrift store flings and everything else in between, July was a pretty good month.

In other news, Garrett and I have both been killing it at the gym lately. We've been going for an hour at least 4x each week. He's already down 20+ pounds and even though my weight has stayed the same, I've been losing mad inches (I'll share more on my progress another day). I can definitely feel myself getting stronger every single day. Unfortunately, I manage to strain one of my intercostal muscles (one of the muscles between my ribs) about 2 weeks ago. Breathing, laughing and sleeping caused me so much pain and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to lift for a long time. But, after some rest and lots of prayer, I'm 100% better now.

I'd like to thank all of you who continue to read what I dish out. I haven't been sharing as much as I'd like to the past 2 months, but I appreciate the fact that you've stuck around and I hope I'll be able to give this space more attention in the weeks to come!

  1. crazy how you've lost so many inches! that's great news! you'd think there'd be a weight loss somewhere in there too, but ugh weight loss for girls just isn't the same! i am trying so hard to exercise too and i feel like i am experiencing the same thing too - a few inches maybe gone, but no actually pounds gone. fine by me for now!
