Where Have I Been?

For those of you who have been following this blog since the beginning, or even in recent months you probably have noticed my lack of posting. The truth is I started struggling to post regularly when I stopped working in NYC and took a job on Long Island. I had found happiness in my life and in turn, my life became busier. 

   I was working out 5-6 times a week, sometimes twice a day and when I wasn’t working or in the gym I was with family and friends soaking up every bit of life and my blogging fell to the wayside. I would still check in or do reviews periodically but nothing like I had done while sitting in my New York City cubicle. Fast forward to my abrupt move from Long Island to Virginia in September and that is when things on my corner of the internet really started to fall apart.
   It took me months to get used to my new life here and I spent many days struggling to even smile. In time I found my happiness again in my friends I have made and my new home at the gym, I found myself again.  
     In early April, we found out we were going to be adding a new member to our family early next year. So we yet again, abruptly moved. Thankfully, this time it was only two blocks away.  The move was more exhausting for me then I had originally anticipated and in turn I had stopped vlogging.
     Now here we are in the middle of July and I am currently 15 ½ weeks pregnant with a baby girl! We found out the gender very early on due to genetic testing and being the type A personality that I am, I wanted to know as soon as we could to prepare for our new addition.  Life has changed a lot for me over the last year and I am finally in a place where I feel ready to post regularly again. I want to be able to look back on my pregnancy journey, adjusting to our new life and milestones along the way. I want to review products, share recipes and workouts again. I just want to share my life with all of you, especially during such an exciting time. I am currently trying to create some sort of posting schedule but this blog that started as a health and fitness/weight loss blog will be focusing more on all aspects of my life going forward. I don’t plan on changing my Just Keep Sweating name anywhere but Instagram, which is now @Carlyn_Grace but I hope you’ll follow me on my new journey and wherever life takes us next!
