Ok, so it's been almost 5 months since my last post.  I'll be surprised to see if there is still anyone following my blog :) I've missed blogging and hope to be back!

There are a couple reasons why I decided to take an "unofficial" break the last few months.  First, there's a fine line of knowing what to share and what is too much.  I don't want to offend people or make people think that I'm going to write about EVERYTHING that happens in my life...some things are private and I don't want the entire world to know. Just like on Facebook.  I still get on there, but my postings have been fewer and fewer.  I like to find out things from people by running into them at the grocery store and catching up or meeting for lunch.  When I share things on the Blog or Facebook, I feel like everyone already knows what is going on in my life so they don't ask how things are (same with me towards people).  Does that make sense?  I just feel like it's impersonal.  And like I said, I don't share everything online, so if the posts you see make you think that I have a perfect life or perfect kids, that's totally not the case.  So I'm trying to balance telling enough about me and my family to make us seem like real, normal people but also not over-sharing :)

The other reason why I chose to take a break is because the last few months, I have just felt off.  I'm still not sure what is totally going's frustrating.  Ever since my 3rd pregnancy, my Type 1 Diabetes has been out of control.  Still, 14 months after delivery, my body is super-insulin resistant.  I'm working with my doctors to get this under control, but it's taking much longer than I ever expected.  Needless to say, that's been affecting my exercise and training as well as numerous other areas of my life.  I won't go into all the details here on the blog, but I will share some of what I've learned.

So anyway, I'm back.  I'm excited to share some of the things that have happened in the last 5 months, some upcoming home projects I want to do, some diet and exercise stuff and lots of other things...hopefully I can stay on a roll and keep up :)
