I've been a bad blogger lately! Let's just say it's been a busy last few weeks with my son having surgery on his ear, a trip to Colorado, house guests, an out-of-town wedding, and getting ready to take my son to kindergarten! Life is settling back down a bit now and I'm thankful for it! Updates on those things: the wedding was beautiful and it was great to see family, house guests were fun to see, surgery went well and he's recovering beautifully so far, Colorado is gorgeous, and kindergarten started on Tuesday with no tears from me (the tears came Wednesday!)!

Since my son is in kindergarten all day, I've gone to the gym the last two mornings. It's been great! I've had lots of people ask me what I'll do with all of my time while he's in school. I'm the coordinator for my MOPS group, so that takes time, I have a house to clean and going to the gym will hopefully lead to a job someday as I'd love to work for Weight Watchers, but can't do that until I reach my goal! I do teach piano lessons, too, some evenings. I may go back to school after Christmas, but time will tell on that one. In other words, I'm plenty busy!

I've had some gains lately, but with going to the gym and getting back to tracking my daily points, I'm back to business this week and am sure I'll be seeing losses once again. Today is my 11th wedding anniversary and I'm *this close* to fitting into my dress. I hope this time next year that dress will be too big! I have some goals in my head that I may share later, for now just know that I'm refocused after a crazy summer!

Are you focused right now? What do you do to stay on track during crazy-busy times?

I've recently come across your blog and I think you are really inspiring! You have done so amazingly well!

I find really good planning (writing lists of things to prepare for the next day etc) key to getting through busy times. Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day tho!

Welcome back, Annie! You sure have had a busy summer. So, happy to hear that your son's surgery went well and all your other events also. :)

Most bloggers I read take blog breaks during the's to be expected. Glad to have you back to blogging again!

Hey there Annie,
I've been gone awhile myself. This summer was crazy and I'm so glad to put it behind me. I sure hope you're doing well. It would be great to hear from you. Let us know how you're doing.

Good for you on your weight loses again! I went back to Weight Watchers last week. I have over 100 pounds to lose. I am a lifetime member and was a bit ashamed to have to admit that I needed to lose weight again but you know how supportive they are at the meetings and they made me feel good about myself and not a failure. I am also back at the gym. I love reading your blog and seeing your pictures. Thanks for the tips and inspiration!
