Z is for Zzzz #atozchallenge


Zzzzs mean sleep ya'll and I need to find mine again!

I feel like I have a lot of confessing to do since I started out this month with high hopes and lofty goals that most just did not come to fruition.

This entire month I've been tired for various reasons. ..first, it was the constant cooking and cleaning. It takes a heck of a lot of time to get everything chopped, washed, soaked, prepped, cooked, cleaned up and eaten when you're not relying on pre-processed foods! I made it 10 days on the Whole30 challenge before I realized I just was not going to be able to continue past the 30 days without my cheese. My friend S is almost done with the Whole30 days and rocking it!

I've had a lot of inspiration running around in my head and actually making it onto paper, into Photoshop and I need it to continue while I give myself a makeover and re-brand! I'm even 99% sure I'm switching over to Wordpress but I'll miss my Blogger blog!

I just want to read all the gosh dang time so I spend all of my free time doing that and then I still have other things I should be doing so I end up going to bed super late.

This is the end of the A-Z Challenge and I have absolutely no idea how I finished, except a. I planned a lot and b. I needed to finish one thing I started this month!

I was a complete failure at the Wallet Watch I put myself on. I did pretty good for the first 10 days and then when I jumped off the Whole30 train, I landed into the grove of I don't give a flying and continued; coming just short of my #50MilesInApril challenge, bwahaha.


So, as much fun as this whole adventure has been; I'm ready for the next chapter. I thought about cutting back posts, but really I have a lot to say so I don't know if that will happen or not.

I'm done with A-Z in April and good riddance, but it was fun. Seriously.


I have one more book things to share with my reader friends...there's a compilation of books available only in April with proceeds going to RAINN and it has books by some of my favs Jamie McGuire and Abbi Glines! Our Own Brand of Heroine for $2.99 I think! I'm just glad I didn't miss out on it!

Thanks to Kathy for always hosting the Confessions link up. It really is very therapeutic. Happy Hump day ya'll!

  7. I thought you did really well with the A-Z challenge! And don't be too hard on yourself on the other things... Whole30 is freaking hard! So is the Wallet Watch thing. And 50 Miles in April? I didn't know you were doing that. You're crazy! lol

  9. I never get enough sleep. Naps have pretty much become my favorite hobby.

  10. I never get the sleep I need, mostly from reading at night too and Seamus waking me up early. Good thing he's cute. I spent my day off reading instead of doing the mile long list of to-do's I was supposed to get to.

  14. I really wanted to join the Wallet Watch but I knew I was going to fail and I hate setting myself up for disappointment ha ha. I don't think I could do the Whole30 as much as I want to do it. I really love cheese. Also, I LOVE reading! I'll stay up all night reading then feel like crap the next morning ha ha. Great confessions!

  15. I did better not spending money last month than I did on the challenge! I swear it's all psychological.

  17. Yay for finishing the challenge! I still have yet to get through an entire blog challenge. Kudos to you for cooking so much! I need to start doing that more. I know exactly what you mean about wanting to read all the time! I have the same problem.
