I’m back… Seriously, the longest break in the history of blogging. Ha! So I haven’t posted since October because life started to get very interesting for me, and by interesting I mean crazy busy, and since my blog is not a job just a way to reach out to the world and share ideas and inspiration, I had to place it on the back burner for a bit.
A lot has happened since October. We sold a house and bought a house. Kind of by accident. We were not actively looking to move. Since moving to Maryland we had lived in our spacious townhouse for almost 7 years. (it was supposed to be a 3 year stint) Bob and I had always wanted an older home that was in close walking distance to church, restaurants, and the sort. We also have wanted a yard, and a detached garage for a home gym for training my personal clients. Of course that was a tall order, but one day the right opportunity came along and before you know it we had our house up for sale and a contract on a new/old home. Our townhouse sold right away but came with the usual stressors when selling a home, and then of course buying a house that is almost 70 years old that needed some work done before closing was an experience I don’t wish to ever repeat again. Top that off with moving a week before Christmas and you got yourself an invitation to the nut house. I don’t recommend moving during the Christmas season, but we made it though and I am in love with our new/old home.
Not only have I moved, but I have been nursing an injury. I have been in PT since October and I am getting better but have had to back off of my training and switch up my workouts. I have stopped doing CrossFit, more on that in a blog to come. I have been focused on recovery and rehab workouts that will help my body to heal and get better for workouts that make it functional and healthy. Taking the time off from CrossFit (one of my favorite things) taught me a lot of important life lessons during my recovery time and I’m excited to share them with you in future blogs to come. The last three months have been an emotional roller coaster and I have been doing my best to accept the changes as they come. That includes listening to my body and being patient with my limitations.
Our family has made some rather big decisions these last couple months and I would be lying if I said that we did so without apprehension, but it is facing our fears and accepting change that leads to growth. Taking a step in faith has always lead to new and better things. The Burnett’s have started a new chapter in our life and our family is looking forward to the journey that is ahead of us.
By the way, we also added a new addition to our family. Meet Snickers our new kitten and my pilates partner. 🙂
Glad to be back at it….more to come soon!
