Hi Y’all

Welcome to my blog. I hope you’ll enjoy visiting my little slice of internet heaven. Previously Tomes and Tequila, I’m now Candid Christine.

Confessional Catch-Up

Confessional Catch-Up

Long time, no blog post! I think you'll find a direct correlation between my disappearance from view on here and times when my mental health might not be the best. I've said before that I am very honest, and won't lie or hide from y'all. So this might be a bit of a confessional catch up post. 

I've been a mess recently, y'all. I don't really know how else to describe it. I allowed myself to get into a funk. I got all bummed out, and down on myself, and when that happens I tend to hide...and eat. 

So, no blog posts...no pretty pics on Instagram. Very few Facebook appearances, and little interaction on Twitter. This girl was holed up in her house, dwelling and ruminating, and feeling like poopyshits. Oh, and while I was busy doing all that depressive crap, I managed to gain 12 lbs back since Thanksgiving.

Do you know how hard it is to gain that much weight in such a short amount of time? It requires major effort! 

And I am absolutely mortified to tell y'all that...to confess my fall off the wagon. It's embarrassing. I'm suppose to be motivating everyone, and helping you become the best yous!! I'm suppose to be a shining example of exemplary weight loss!! You can't write a blog about weight loss and self-improvement while eating jalapeno cheese dip and americone dream ice cream. 

Things are better now, and I like to think I'm back on track, although my life is changing a bit. I recently got a new job, and will be working outside the home again. I've been doing my jewelry and other projects, but this is a proper 9 to 5 office job, and it's going to take me a bit to get use to. I'm still reading, but I'm currently trying to get my new routine in order to figure out when my writing time will be. At the moment I'm coming home exhausted, eating and then going to bed early! 

So, I needed to come on and tell y'all that I'm still here...still kicking. Working on getting my crap together. Trying to get my diet back under control, and figuring out when to fit exercise into my new daily schedule. I'm trying not to beat myself up too badly for this slip-up. It could be worse...and has been worse in the past. And it didn't last too long, thank God. Hopefully I'll get regular posts back up and going again. Until then, I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!!

See y'all soon.
