Reset, Refocus, Revitalize


Whaddya know, I still have a blog. Guess I kind of forgot about it in all the post-Yelper Party mayhem, eh? Well, if there is only one person reading this, then I definitely only have myself to blame for that (but thank you to that one person *coughmomcough* for sticking with me!).

I just popped in to say that I know I’ve been a bad, bad blogger recently, but I actually have some fun news to share. See, I think that the time away from the pressures of feeling bad about not blogging (or writing) has given me the break that I needed to recharge my batteries. Work craziness has died down somewhat and I’m returning to a state of normalcy, which means I’m actually itching to get back in the saddle, as it were!

Of course, with the break from blogging and the mental reset also came a few realizations (that tie in pretty well with the content of my last post). See, I think that those of you who suggested I consider rebranding and refocusing this here blog are right! I’ve spent almost four (!!) amazing years with Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen! and I’ve grown up and I’ve lost weight and I’ve learned more about myself than I thought I ever would, but, as you have no doubt noticed, my priorities have definitely changed.

Weight loss itself hasn’t been a priority for me in quite a while — at least not in the same way that it once was. And I’m actually pretty okay with that. I’m actually pretty okay with myself right now… for like, the first time ever, hahahaha. So I’d like this blog to be a bit more reflective of that. Of my new perspective, of my new goals (or my lack of goals), of the fact that I’m a different gal than I was 4 years ago. So I’ll be rebranding this blog to be representative of exactly that!

Nothing has been created just yet, but I just wanted to take this time to update you on what’s going on, and to let you know that I think there are some fun things on the horizon. So stay tuned (hey, if you’ve stuck with me this long, what’s a little while longer, eh?) and, as always, feel free to let me know if you think I’m making a giant mistake… though you know I’m just gonna do it anyway. 😉
