Man. I had big plans this week. Plans to catch up on work, to write, to finally respond to all the thoughtful comments you all have left on my posts. I swear I read each and every one and they mean so much to me. I’ve just been having trouble finding myself in front of the computer long enough to reply.
Cue Blogger’s Guilt.
I admit that I’m a little off my game lately. I feel like I’m all over the place with work-related stuff – trying to break into teaching yoga, trying to pitch more freelance writing work, trying to maintain my current consulting clients so that I’m generating at least some income, trying to train for a half marathon. Oh yeah, and trying to be present in my home with my family.
While I’ve been DO-ing a lot, it’s a bit like throwing a whole bunch of spaghetti up at the ceiling and seeing what sticks. Not very efficient nor effective. I need to focus my DO-ing more, get my ducks in a row, you know?
That might mean blogging here less often – I’m not sure yet. But hey! That just means that you will have less to catch up on in your reader/email and then you’ll be really excited to see me when I do write, right??

One bit of exciting news that I wanted to share – I was named one of Zulily’s 10 favorite health and fitness bloggers! I’m honored to be included with the likes of Michele, Kristin, Katie, Madeline, and Katy. Total rock stars.
I have to be honest. I didn’t read that much this week so I have a short Friday round-up for you. But they are fantastic reads so go read them if you haven’t already.

This was hilarious. Lindsay’s husband wrote this post about what it’s like to be married to a blogger. I sense a little bit of sarcasm. Just a little…
Dear Nordstrom – About Your Skinny Sleep Pillow
From the hilarious to the absurd – this pillow that Tracy found at Nordstrom is ridiculous and Tracy’s response is brilliant. By the way, I’m so glad that Tracy is blogging every day this year because her posts so far this month have been amazing. I love reading all her words.
How I Stopped Procrastinating
I need to stop procrastinating. That might be part of the reason that I’m feeling unfocused. Maybe I need to try what the author did in this article, sans the broken hip.
