Popping in to say hi. Unfortunately blogging has been pushed lower and lower on my priority list. Besides having other priorities trumping blogging, I just haven't had much to say lately.
So this has been consuming a lot of my time lately.
This is the first time I've studied for an exam in over 15 years. I'm studying for a professional designation that I will be taking an exam for at the beginning of December. I'm a good four weeks into studying and my confidence level seems to be going down with each passing week and each practice quiz I take. It's very stressful.
This week has been a challenge (and it's only Wednesday) Jim came down with something Monday night and it hit him hard yesterday. He never gets sick. That meant some added responsibilities for me that I'm not used to like getting the kids ready for school and dropping them off. And last night I actually had to empty and load the dishwasher. Boo. Hiss. I will take doing laundry any day over doing the dishes.
I have to say that taking Gracie to ballet is still the highlight of my week. I love taking photos of her with my phone. I've been playing around with the photo app Snapseed and really like the results I'm getting.

So I've been focusing on my eating the past week. Last weekend I did much better than the previous weekend and actually had weekly points left come Monday. I'm really proud of myself for taking my lunch to work consistently. That helps with the food choices so much.
I haven't made working out a priority. I've taken some walks the last couple of weeks but I really need to get back into the gym. It's so hard to go back when you've missed even a few days.
