I know, I know, I took away the most exciting part of your day: checking IHABL for updates on this weird excuse for a life that I lead. My apologies.
I’m in the midst of what feels like the busiest month of my life thus far (never one to shy away from dramatics), so, as I explained to Erin when she stopped by the store the other day, something had to go. And trust me, I wish it wasn’t writing. Because truth be told, if I could make a living off eating, working out, and writing about it, you know I’d be all about that life. But sadly that isn’t the case, and it’s crunch time in the next 30 days to accomplish my goals. I’m taking on more responsibility at the store that I think will propel me to growing with the company, I take my NASM personal training exam in less than a month, and I’m taking over full duties as run club coach for the store. It’s a lot, and it’s a lot happening fast.
I’m also trying this weird thing called a personal life — networking events, nights out with friends, happy hours, you know the drill…all while balancing those pesky adult tasks — looking for an apartment, handling my student loans, etc. etc. Too much fun stuff. So you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t pop up around the blogosphere as much as normal. I’ll try my best to keep up on your blogs, even if I don’t always comment. And hopefully when I come back in full force all my blogging friends will be here with open arms to welcome me back! In the meantime, life has still treated me well. My best friend is back in Illinois (praise Jesus Hallelujah), there have been some bright sunny days in the midst of mostly springlike weather, and the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup and essentially turned my neighborhood into a 24 hour party.
I’m checking out the new Orangetheory studio in Wicker Park tomorrow so be on the lookout for a studio review coming soon! I’ve had a serious lack of hustle lately.
However lunch will never be cancelled.
