Still Here

I had a moment of panic last night. I forgot to pay for my blog’s hosting and my site could not longer be accessed. I contacted the hosting company and they basically said…”You didn’t pay so we deleted it. And it can’t be recovered.” Serious panic. I cried on my husband’s shoulder, “So many memories are on that blog!” After about ten minutes of a broken heart, the customer service rep announced he had found something and actually could recover my missing blog. Hallelujah!

And in those ten minutes, I realized just how much this blog means to me – and has meant to me over the past few years.

To be honest, I’m feeling a little stuck about where to go with the blog. I miss writing, but the whole “fitness” part of my life is a bit on the back burner right now. Not that it’s not part of it, it’s just not a main focus at this time of my life. There are many more things that take up my thoughts – parenting, faith, relationships, leadership, etc. I’d love to write about these topics, but I’m not sure how to turn the blog into a new direction – especially with the current title. 🙂

So stay tuned. It might take me a while to figure out a new direction, but I’m not ready to let this blog go. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

And in the meantime, here’s an updated photo of my little kiddos. Life is good. <3

    I love ur blog and would encourage u to keep it up. It’s not just fitness that I love hearing about. I love that u share your faith, job and family. Please keep it up. I follow another blogger, Lindsay’s list, and happen to run into her randomly and I encouraged her to keep it up too. Love ya.

    De-lurking to say you’ve been missed. As a fellow toddler mom, wife and professional working outside the home I’d love to hear your thoughts about the topics you mentioned. It’s encouraging and helpful to see how others are handling full lives! And your title still apples – you wanna be an athlete, this just isn’t the session of life to focus on it as formally as in the past/future. But momming is an athletic feat!

  3. Glad to know that you are still here!! I enjoy reading your blog and I enjoy seeing women like myself that are Moms and trying to squeeeeeeeze it all in!!

    Hang in there!!!

    I’m glad you are still here! I would love to hear about all of those topics you mentioned! You could take the blog into any direction and I would still read it. Your children are beautiful!

  5. I love and miss your blog too. I think the wannabe athlete still fits. We all have so many things to juggle as working moms and there are many things we “wannabe” but we have priorities and other loves now that complete us.

  6. Yay! So happy that it wasn’t lost. I love looking back at my memories on the blog too…it’s like a scrapbook 🙂
    I’ve been blogging (Running Escapades), but not running. So the focus of my blog has changed too. I have tried to re-purpose my title and focus on the “escapades”
    The most important thing, is to find what works for you. They’re your memories after all!

  7. OMG the kids are so big! Glad you didn’t lose your blog! I’d love to hear from you about any of the topics you described above. Don’t worry too much about it… just write what moves you 🙂

    You can still be a wanna be when you don’t even have time for that! I love it when you post random bits of life. I would love to read all those posts.

    I am a working mom of a 4 year old so fitness is on the back burning for me too. Most days it is just a struggle to keep my head above water…so I would totally be interested in hearing about your family, faith and parenting.

  11. Keep with it!

    So many bloggers don’t stick exactly with their blog name niche. I say that you keep it!
