We have been getting a few more regulars here at the Laundry Pile. So first of all if you are new to the Laundry Pile I want to say welcome and to let you know that I am so glad you are here. The Laundry Pile is a gathering place. I personally like to fold laundry either at the kitchen table or in the living room where all the kids are out and about doing their thing. I can talk, work, and do all sorts of things while I work on folding my ever growing pile of laundry. That is what I want the Laundry Pile to be. I want this blog space to be a place for us as women to grow in our walk with Jesus while we build relationships with one another. I believe that living in community is a vital for a healthy spiritual life.
Now for a few Updates:
I have been working on my weight loss plan for about 4 weeks now, actually it has been longer, but I have been back on track and consistent for about 4 weeks now. I have been faithful with communicating with my sweet friend on Instagram and we are moving a long. I have managed this week to have 2 days of exercise!!!! This is a wonderful step for me and I am very thankful that I have been able to get moving without terrible consequences in the area of my overall endurance and health.
So the question is: Am I seeing Results?
Yes. So far I have lost 4.4 lbs in about 4 weeks time.
I am pleased with these results and I hope that I can keep going. I was sharing with my accountability partner just this week that I have begun to hit the wall again where I must say no to my cravings for sweets and that can be a struggle for me. I pray I will remain faithful to what God is calling me to do.
I have not been posting as much over the past few weeks. There are a few reasons for this.
- I have been working on other projects.
- I have been trying to spend time with my family.
- I have been reevaluating how much time I have been spending on my blogging.
I love to write.
I love to read books.
I love to be alone.
I love to do all the things that comes with being a blogger. The social media side, the researching side, the reading blogs, and all the other things that come with being a blogger. I just love it.
I am learning I love it a little too much.
I have been spending close to 25 hours per week on my blog. I could easily spend more time than that without batting an eye. For me this is not where my focus should be at this time. I believe that in time I will have the freedom to spend more time working on this blog, but for now I want to limit the hours I am working so that I can be more present with my kids and husband. So what does that mean? It means
- I will be posting probably twice a week for a while.
- I may post more at times if I have several book reviews I am working on.
- I will continue to do the Blogging through the Bible Series with Good Morning Girls.
- I will continue to post on social media as I have time, and I will be checking the Facebook group on a daily basis.
We will be starting back to our school schedule starting September 1st and I want to have the time to devote to my girls who still need a lot of attention from me during school hours.
I look forward to learning and growing together in community over the next year. Thank you for being a part of The Laundry Pile.
