Ready for the dramatics?
Sometimes I take such a long break from updating the ol’ blog that when I sit down to write a new post I don’t even know where to start. Things I haven’t talked about on here are already old news in my real life so it seems silly to bring up old news.
That said, since I talked ad nauseum about the Disney Marathon I suppose I at least owe it to the 5 of you who care to let you know that we decided not to run it. The reason stemmed from a bunch of little events that kind of blew up and really helped sway the final decision. There was the largest factor: Josh and I both felt on the brink of serious injury. I’ve run enough to know the difference between growing pains and real injury and what was going on with my thigh was not right. In the weeks following our decision my leg has felt MUCH better. The other factors in play had to do with money (of course), the fact that we were not having fun with running like we once did, and Josh’s school starting the day after the marathon ends. It just felt like it wasn’t meant to be. So it’s not happening and we are A-ok with it.
What else is going on? Well Weight Watchers is still going well. I had fluke week with only a 0.2lb lost with a credit to factors beyond my control (if you know what I mean) and the fact that I severely stepped back my workouts. I don’t feel discouraged so much as annoyed but I am using that week’s weigh in to propel me into something bigger next Wednesday.

The other day I received notice from my hosting company that it is time for my yearly renewal of the Knack For Nutrition domain. At first I thought “no brainer” bill away! Then I received the bill and realized that the overhead of keeping a site running that brings me no legitimate income is pretty silly since money is always tight. I really don’t mind that I make no money off my blog, I never thought I would to begin with but I have to be practical.
This led to a 3 month trial renewal and the start of the end of Knack For Nutrition. Once my three months are up I will be shutting down this blog and likely (though not definitely) starting a new one that doesn’t place a financial burden on my wallet. Also, I think it is time for a little re-branding. I barely talk about nutrition these days so the name just isn’t working for me anymore.
I promise to share all the details as I decide them and pray you won’t leave me in the dust (or out of your Feedly) once I make the jump!
See ya real soon!
