Life Can Be Hard, Y'all

I have missed blogging, I even started putting blogs together to auto post, but never finished them or scheduled them. Bummer! Oh well, it happens.

We went camping from the 20th to the 24th of July and that was the highlight of the past 2 weeks. The secondary highlight was having the 20th thru the 29th off. I had grand plans to blog, workout a ton and get some stuff around the house done. You know, doing the things that make me feel good. I will say I did get in some awesome workouts. I started half marathon training again! I love training for 1/2's and the accomplishment that comes along with it.

My weight is maintaining. I go up and down, but I have some new exciting stuff happening in the food/training department. Let's hope it sparks something inside of me. Ha!

In all honesty, I have been really depressed lately. I hate admitting that because I am typically an extremely happy person. However, sometimes I just feel like the earth should open and swallow me whole. I know it won't last too long(at least I hope not!). I just have to keep working through and knocking out obstacles.
I recently decided to completely end a friendship. We had been friends since we were kids and it sucks! It's just not what I want out of a friendship anymore.
When my parent's told me they were getting divorced 3 years ago, I never expected that so many things would change. I didn't live at home, I didn't see them that often, and I was in my "own little world". It is now 3 years later, and I feel more broken than the day they told me. 
Work is stressful, which I am sure 99% of you feel the same way. I still love my job as much as ever, but sometimes the stress really gets to me.

On the flip side, I know I am so blessed! I have the BEST friends, I have a WONDERFUL family, I have LOVING dogs that make me laugh and I get to share my life with the MOST AMAZING/SUPPORTIVE/FUN/INTELLIGENT guy in the world. So, I will focus on that in the bad times!

Sorry to be a downer, I just had to write it out. That made me feel a little better!

Happier posts to come tomorrow :)

I have about a billion blogs to read/comment on in my google reader. I always save them to come back to and it takes me FOREVER to get around to it. Does anyone else do that or is it just me? Ha!

So tell me......

How are you??

What exciting stuff have I missed??

How do you get through the hard times in life??


  1. we all need those little rants. Hang in there and thinking of you! Times will get better.

    1. Thank you :)

      I am already feeling much better!

  2. Sorry to hear that life has been challenging lately. We've all been there. Let yourself work through - don't force happy! One day, you'll feel better...and then slowly each day will feel more and more better! HUGS!

  3. Start a gratitude journal. Each night write down the things you were grateful for that day. I think this has helped me a lot. You start to realize that the good outweighs the bad. Love you, Tiff. Let me know if you need anything, I'll be there in a minute!
