Hi friends!

Whew, every time I come to write lately I am blown away by how long its been since my last post.  I’m sorry for being MIA!  I am trying hard to stay caught up with your blogs and comment as much as I can, so hopefully that helps us feel connected.

Life is good but extremely busy.  As in, working-almost-every-weekend busy.  The firm I work for is growing and we are in the hiring process right now, but in the meantime, it’s all hands on deck to get the work done for our clients!  It’s actually really gratifying to see the hard work I’ve done over the last couple years pay off for this firm – I take credit for at least some of this growth, and it makes me happy!  I really can’t wait, though, until I get a whole weekend off with NOTHING planned…soon!

In the meantime, I am struggling with my workouts in the biggest way!  Whenever I work out, I feel great.  But with the long hours that I’m working and just feeling exhausted in general (probably due in part to working a lot), it’s a battle to get to the gym or get out for a run more than 2-3 times/week.  And that’s just not cutting it for me – I’m going stir crazy!  So I’m working on putting together a weekly workout schedule to help me get through this really busy time.  So far it looks something like this:

Sunday – Run 3 miles
Monday – Strength training
Tuesday – Zumba
Wednesday – Walk w/ a friend
Thursday – Strength training
Friday – Kickboxing
Saturday – Off

Now to actually EXECUTE the plan!

How are you all doing?  Anyone feeling the post-holiday slump?

I’m off to motor through work – I have to leave early today for a doctor’s appointment, and then I’m going to take advantage of the extra time and hit up the gym on my way home.  Or maybe go out for a run since the sun is shining in Seattle!
