Yep. Make the letters as big and as neon as you can, just so everyone understands how bad I truly suck. Obviously this post is not one of Meghan’s. Ok, now you’re confused, so let me explain…
Once upon a time, there were two little crEATures. One was an adorable little blonde, and the other a sarcastic brunette. They were two peas in a pod (yuck, peas are gross) and the best of friends in all the land. They both loved to eat healthy foods, and exercise was one of their favorite past times. Together they became fit little crEATures, fitness crEATures if you will (and I will). So, being that these two little girls were so involved in their health, one winter morn’ they decided to share this lifestyle with all others in the land via something called “the internet.” This idea was great, they thought, and was moving along fancily…at first. But then, one of the little girls fell off the face of the land and no one on “the internet” ever heard from her again. The end. (Oh, the reason you were confused earlier is because you forgot I existed. Sometimes I forget, too.)
To recap: I suck.
I’m not making excuses, but here’s my schedule with my new job:
- Wake up at 7:30 (more like 8:00)
- Go to my old job (which I’m still working for about two hours each day) at 9:00
- Get to my new job at 11:00 and stay till 10:00/midnight/5:00 am
- Get home late and attempt to get a few hours of sleep before I do it all again
It’s a restaurant, so it’s not just Mon-Fri that I’m doing this. I’m working stupid hours (58 hours in 4 days kind of stupid) and have no time for anything, including to blog. Not that you guys would even want me to because I have LITERALLY NOTHING TO BLOG ABOUT. It sucks. I have zero time to work out, so I can’t post about that. I’ve been at least trying to be diligent about eating Paleo, but even when I cook like that it’s very basic food – just so I can survive my 15 hour days – so there’s not much of a point in posting that, either. What really blows about my schedule is that my health is being drastically affected by it. I don’t sleep enough, I don’t have time to work out, and I don’t bring enough food with me for my 12-17 hour days and am then surrounded by crap food at work. It’s just not conducive to the healthy lifestyle I want to live. I’m finished ranting now.
I really want to post and be a part of this blog still. Meghan and I created this together, and she’s been carrying 100% of the load while I’ve been off in Exhaust Myself Land. She’s been doing an amazing job and she is 100% of the reason this is still going, and going strong at that. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to contribute and I’m sorry that this has become her blog (essentially) because of my absence. I’m sure she’s frustrated, even though she doesn’t tell me and is, instead, more than understanding of my schedule and other impeding factors in my life right now. She’s the most wonderful, beautiful, intelligent, supportive, caring, thoughtful, and considerate best friend that I could ever imagine having and I’m extremely grateful for her. She’s also a great roomie, Cola, and mama bird. I’m going to shout all of this from on top of a mountain. Then we’ll form a family band.
Anyway, I think this picture says it all.
I’m sorry, Cola bear. You’re the best for putting up with my crap and my lack of contribution to our blogchild. I promise to make a more concerted effort to contribute from now on.
I’ve been reading everyone’s comments, and you’re all adorable. I want to play with you like Meghan is. I really hope that I can get my schedule lightened up a bit so I can do so. This is a really great community of amazing people and I want be an active part of it.
In keeping with Meghan’s theme:
Do you ever suck?
Do you have a best friend who you wouldn’t trade for all the Skittles in the world?
If you have a busy schedule like me, what are you doing to stay healthy?
