Long time no talk! I’m surprised I even remembered my username and password to log into this little blog of mine, ha! I honestly did not mean to take over a week off, but ya know what? I did. It was refreshing. And I don’t feel bad about it! Actually, I did feel bad when my Mom called me out over the weekend for not blogging. She said I was probably disappointing my fans, in the nicest way possible, of course. I don’t think I have fans. I just have people that are just as nosy as I am and like knowing every little thing about people’s lives, haha!
So let’s play a little bit of catch up.
Since we last talked, I ran a St. Patrick’s Day race. They made me Irish for the day, and made me Allie O’Lewis! My new last name must have brought me luck on race day. I’ve run this race 3 years in a row, each time getting a faster time. Well this year, I actually beat my time from 2015 by a minute and 8 seconds. Looks like all of my speed work is paying off!
I ran it with Ashley, my gym buddy and partner-in-crime. She blew last year’s time out of the water too, and I’m almost positive she ran it about 2 minutes faster! This girl is by my side at the gym pushing me harder and making me laugh 5-6 days of the week, and I wouldn’t change a thing. We are starting an accountability program as of today to work towards our goals, which just happen to be the same.
Rice cakes with protein pudding has been my new favorite snack. I mix 8 grams of sugar-free dry pudding mix with about 20 grams of protein powder, with water, and top 1 or 2 rice cakes with it. Add a bit of sprinkles for crunch, and it’s a great snack! I’m also guilty of just dunking the rice cakes in peanut butter. Sometimes you just have to live your life.
Speaking of living my life, that’s another reason I haven’t been blogging much. I’m living my life away from the computer and internet. I’m doing things that will better my life, I’m dating again, and it’s SO MUCH FUN! Oh, and on my birthday, I chopped my hair off! I am obsessed with it, and feel like there’s a whole new level of sass to me.
This was my favorite Easter ever. I laughed so much. I also enjoyed quality time with all of my cousins. I feel as if some holidays I only get to truly talk in depth with 1-2 cousins, but not at Easter, and I think that’s why it’s my favorite holiday. I’m so blessed that my cousins are some of my closest friends and that we can talk about anything and everything together.
Lindsay just started a Whole30 on Monday, and she is going to do so well! I’m kind of wanting to do another Whole30 again simply because she inspires me!
Life is really great right now, and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier than I am right now. There’s something to be said about walking by faith and not by light. If you let go of the reigns that you’re trying to use to control your life, you’ll be a lot more happier and carefree. That is what I have done, and life seems to be wonderful.
I know that I’ve said that I’ll get back into a good blogging routine, but with spring here and more activities and time being spent outside, I truly plan on getting back into a good schedule, even if it’s only 2-3 posts a week. Sometimes you just need a break from blogging or any type of activity, and I feel as if the winter was a good time for me to do that! Have a great day! 🙂
What have you been up to lately?!
Tell me something that’s making you happy?
