Hello, lovely readers! It has been a little while since my last post… As a matter of fact, this is my first post of 2015.
And, it’s Tuesday, so that means it’s time for a Tuesday @ 10 post. Today’s prompt is: FOCUS.
Which, leads beautifully into what I wanted to unfold here in my little corner of the blogosphere.
You see, a while back (almost 3 years now…) I gave myself a little challenge to change myself over the course of that year. I had hit my heaviest weight of my life in November 2011, and I was directionless, feeling lost & lazy.
By the following May, I had found new directions, a job at a gym that I loved, and was making plans to return to school in the fall…So, I wanted to give myself a mini make-over: take a year & shed pounds and simplify life.
I didn’t really blog too much about it, but I did blog the results. I dropped 35 pounds, got rid of some of my stuff, and got my Spiritual routine focused.
Last year, I began a section on my blog about my Adventures in Dating (or, lack thereof). My cousin encouraged me to put myself out there, and to blog about it. And, what an adventure it has been.
So, this year, with both of those experiences behind me, it’s time to re-focus. To share more of my story that I hope will encourage others.
As I wrote in I am #ProHealth, I want to get fit, and inspire others along the way. Also, even though I am back to the single side of the dating game, the adventure is truly still continuing.
So, this re-focusing of my blogging will have some great new post series for 2015.
Every Tuesday & Friday that I am possibly able, I plan to continue my participation in Tuesday @ 10 & Five Minute Friday. That won’t change. Both of those traditions have been great for me to stay on track to keeping up this blog, even among my busy schedule.
But, this year, I’m going to add:
- Work It Wednesday: Every 2nd & 4th Wednesday, I will be posting around my fit journey, and how getting healthy really plays into being part of His Beloved. Inspiration, quotes, struggles, failures, & retrying. I don’t want to go it alone, and I don’t want anyone who needs the encouragement to go it alone, either. So, now I have a place to be accountable, and we have a place to share.
- Lovely Sunday: Every 1st & 3rd (&5th) Sunday will be Lovely Sunday. The theme of this day is my dating & single adventure, any new developments, what God is teaching me in this precious time that I am on my own. Glimpses of fear & fearlessness. The soundtrack to a broken heart that yearns for connection. The soundtrack for a joyous heart who knows that she is deeply loved & on a crazy adventure called life. Again, so that I don’t have to go the journey alone, and neither does anyone else who feels as if they are.
In between these, I will likely find some odds & ends to blog about, but as 2015 progresses, I feel the need to present something more focused, something I am passionate about, that other people can relate to. Something to bring us into deeper connection as children in His Kingdom.
So, I’ll see you all tomorrow for my first Work It Wednesday… 2015 is going to be a Lovely year.

Way to go on losing 35 lbs. I loved how you used the word focus. I’m hoping to do Tuesday at 10 each week as well. And hopefully FMFridays too. I love the blogging community and the free writes with prompt words.
