I haven’t given a weekly update since October 30th. Life has been happening and I am enjoying every minute of it. If you have been following me on Facebook than you know that I work hard to bring you the national days as many as I can. With the holidays fast approaching like next week is Thanksgiving I have arranged that all posts have been set so I can enjoy some much-needed family time. I have taken a few days off from work as well so me and my little family can zone out with each other, wear Thanksgiving gear, and just eat and be merry. I will still be posting blogs. I will not be taking a total break. We are going to finish the year strong. In the meantime, what has been going on?
I have been hitting the social scene pretty hard. I have been balancing that with my family, work, and my work out schedule. I think my planners are burning at this point. As the end of the year approaches there has already been an increase of more social events to attend. If there is anyone who like me deals with social anxiety this time of the year can be a huge issue for you. I understand. I try to get there on time because for me getting there late makes me feel like the spotlight is on me. Take deep breaths and play some calming or feel good music on the way. I also try to make sure that I connect with at least one person and make that my go to person as I travel the room and greet others. I also make sure that I have an exit plan in place in case I get too overwhelmed. For the most part unless it’s a show or something I have to be at for the whole event.
So far since the last update I have attended a yoga class, went to see Bad moms, attended my son’s soccer, went out for Halloween, and attended the Janet Jackson concert. Holy get out of the house. This doesn’t include my meet-ups for working out with friends so this girl is finally breaking out of her shell.
I can’t wait to enjoy some much-needed family time and I hope that you do the same with your families.
My job is doing a maintain challenge. The goal is to keep maintain where you are but if you go over 2 pounds you are disqualified. This has helped me since I have changed my schedule to include 5 days at the gym, with 3 of those days being in the am. So whatever you need to do so you can still eat them pies, cookies, and cakes I suggest you do. I am going to keep going but I will still enjoy some of the great holiday food!
We have been on the move. I have answered a slew of Ask Toi. I will continue to push those out as I am a bit behind. If you have been asking why there are so many the holidays always brings stress. As soon as that stress hits people need to vent. I am here. Ask your questions by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

We have done over 10 or more blogs as I am averaging out to at least 4 or more blogs a week. A girl is feeling pretty good these blogging days! Thank you to all who have wished me a happy anniversary. It’s still November. My social media pages will all be getting revamped.
I have made changes to the blog itself. By Thanksgiving I will have changes to Instagram
