I have been a terrible blogger since I went on vacation last week. I got swamped at work when I came back and my scheduled posts didn't go up as planned. So, I appologize for late posts, no posts, and probably sub par posts as well. :) I will try to do better!!
Today I want to talk about life balance. How do you balance your healthy lifestyle? Living a balanced life to me is about finding a way to be happy with your life and still be healthy for the most part. I go out with friends, go on girls trips and other vacations, drink (probably too much) and eat (probably more/worse than I should). I try to balance this by being active at least 5 days a week and eating home cooked healthier meals most days during the week. Weekends are a whole 'nother story! ;)
Another part of balance is work/life/spiritual balance. I try not to stress about work-I don't love my job, but the perks make it worth it. Having a flexible boss means everything! I struggle with not saying no to activities. (Anyone else?!?!?) I end up playing in too many volleyball leagues and going out too much at times. This is fun for awhile, but I usually end up run down and burned out after awhile. Must learn to say No!! I don't talk about it much, but God and church are a big part of my life. My fiance is a preacher's kid, so we attend his dad's church. It is a great place to worship and praise. There is always room for improvement in your spiritual journey (no matter what it may be).
When doing a little research, I found this great blog post from Little Miss Runshine that has great tips! http://www.littlemissrunshine.com/2013/04/living-a-healthy-balanced-life.html
