full force

I am back.
Not quite full force, though. I found myself stretched too thin, so I am instituting some changes. I love reading blogs. This is what prompted me to start my own in the first place. Well, that and the fact that I think out my life in written form--I always have. We bloggers are crazy like that.
Anyhoo---I love reading blogs but I stopped a few days a go because I felt completely overwhelmed. Not only am I a wife and mother of two, but I am also a homeschool teacher to my son and primary housekeeper here at the ranch. So my computer time is limited. I found that I was spending so much time writing comments on other blogs that I was losing a lot of the time that I had to write my own. So, I am cutting waaaayyy back on my commenting. Please don't feel as if I am disappearing altogether, I am still there reading just the same. If you look at my blogroll, it is a long one. It is not reciprocal---I read every single one. I just realized that I am not able to read and comment as much as I was doing. I will now choose my words carefully and comment when I really feel as if I had something to say. I hope that you don't mind, and that you all know that I am still there and interested in all you have to say.

I have also started fresh yesterday on a new campaign to eat healthfully and exercise. I have also decided to vlog it. So, I will let the video me, tell you. Sorry about how dark it is---although, I have to say it is kind of nice to have the shadow hiding my blubber. But then, how could I capture the weight changes in my face? I will start scouting for a place with better lighting for next weeks vlog.


  1. Rachel,
    I totally understand. I've been hibernating myself the last month or so, think I'm still decompressing from my trip. I enjoy your comments, but I undestand...

    AND, you've been TAGGED. Check out my blog to see how it works. If you're not interested in being "it", then just enjoy the extra hits you just might get.

  2. I also totally understand...

    Our friendship is over...

    Just kidding!

    Lurk all you want...I love knowing you are reading :)

  3. It was nice to "see" and hear you.
    Vuelve pronto!

  4. Woah! I LOVE the new vlog :)

    And I'm so happy that the book you read was a good one and not a fad diet thing. I totally agree with the fact that the body NEEDS a balanced diet. And if you're not giving it that, you won't be able to sustain weight loss. A diet should be something you can live with forever!

    I'm looking forward to your next vlog and of course I'll be following your fitday :)

  5. Thanks Ann. I really enjoy your blog....especially your bug log ;)

    Bradley: I really appreciate you not hating me ;) I was so nervous that people would not like me if I de-commented!

    Mamacita K. I am very excited about the results so far. I notice that my use of fitday still hasn't jinxed you... glad to see that!

  6. Rachel,

    I so get this post and couldn't agree more. Moderation is key and I give you tons-o-credit for knowing what your priorities are. Wishing you all the best my friend.

  7. I completely understood you on this one. The last few months I've been more than a little absent on my favorite blogs because I just couldn't fit it all in (and MY blog nearly reached a standstill). I'm trying to come back, but like you, it's not full force. We'll continue to love you regardless of how much you comment on our blogs!

  8. woo hoo!!!! here you are!

    ok...i am mega late, but i understand! sooo much!

    actually i had an opposite problem. i just didnt have the time to get around to i kinda took a little break myself. though i thru up a post every few days. but i just cant read every single body every single day anymore.

    its cool to hear your voice. and see your shadow.

    i am rambling...what was my point?

    its good to know you still stop by. thank you!!!


  9. We will all keep reading your great words too! You are much loved here!
