February was another hell of a month, (ear tubes surgery for Keira, mono for Jon, lots of work for me) but I am back onboard in March.
I am challenging myself to do something active every day (even SparkGuy's (in)famous 10 minutes a day) and to log my food at least 5 times per week. I rode my exercise bike last night and realized how easy it is to get unfit in just a few short months.
But I'm working at looking forward though, and not backwards (thanks, SPUNKYDUCKY). It'd be easy to look at some of the photos from 2010 when I was at my thinnest and fittest and get depressed, but...
Sometimes this journey will not be the #1, #2 or even #3 or #4 priority in your life, and you just have to be OK with that.

I'm sorry I have been out of touch with my SparkFriends, and I hope you are doing well, especially those of you hit hard by Sandy. Here's what's up:
Keira is crawling like crazy, loving daycare and being with the other babies, and is just such a happy, bright and good-natured child. And yeah, she loves pumpkins. Especially pumpkin bread. And she was a zebra for Halloween.
I walked a half marathon a month ago. The same one I ran in 2010. And it hurt way more. Still, given I haven't been as active, I will take my 17-minute mile average! Not too bad.
I am working full-time. I started taking clients and I got super lucky and scored a string of freelance writing jobs that adds up to a real paycheck and I can scarcely believe it. I am also taking Friday to spend with Keira for as long as I'm able.
Day 1 of November and I need to get back to what works and feel more energized and get back to exercise (at least three cardio sessions and SOME strength training) and tracking. I have been maintaining in the 230s pretty much since a couple months after Keira was born.
So for November, I want to check in at least with a status update with how I did for the day. Keep me accountable if you can. Sadly, I am not able to browse SP blogs like I used to because I'm paid for how much I write so I have an incentive to be productive!
