Change of Pace

I have officially had this blog over a year.

At least I can say that I weigh less now than I did at this time last year... although it isn't by much.

I'm just not feeling the whole weightloss bit right now. It's not that I'm going out and eating like a crazy person, but I just don't feel like bothering with tracking things, and just plain old worrying about it. Some may think "well what could be more important than your health?" And while that's a good point, it's hard to focus so much energy on something that TAKES a lot of energy, when I have a lot of other things to worry about too.

I am like this with everything in my life. Something grabs my attention for awhile... I commit to it for awhile... then I get tired of it. A year ago, I was adding tons of weight loss blogs into my google reader... then I went to a craft blog phase, and now I'm into a money-saving blog phase. So while it may disappoint some (those few that may still read?), I am not making a full-time committment to this blog as a weightloss blog anymore... not that I even have been for awhile...

One thing that will be added to my blog title will be "and Steals...". Right now I am in the mindset that with a little work, I can save oodles of money in my life. And it really is happening... I read a handful of frugal blogs, and those ladies often suggest posting about our finds, and sometimes there are even contests involved for writing about such things... so, Teale's Meals shall become Teale's Meals (...and Steals!)

I have missed your blogs but I totally understand sometimes other things are more important. Thankfully I am always looking for ways to save money. So I look forward to hearing about your different ways.

Have you seen my blog lately? I have the weight loss, the cooking, my dogs, I'm thinking of adding a section for the craft projects I'm working on. I'm like you, I do something for a while and then I get bored. Unfortunately improving my health is something that I MUST keep an interest in, like it or not.

I can't wait to see your money saving blog!

like the new name! I could definitely benefit from some $ tips! I hear you...weight loss is exhausting in just about every way. I hope that you can find the time and mental energy to focus on it, but in the meantime, enjoy the time you do have because I know if your schedule is anything like mine, that time is few and far and it deserves to be spent being happy.

Coolie! Saving money is a great thing. Glad to hear you're doing ok, too! ((hugs))

So glad to hear from you! No matter what your blog is about, you've got people here who want to read what you have to say :)

Be sure and take good care of yourself, healthwise, even if the weight loss goes on the back burner for a bit. I look forward to hearing some "steals" from you.

If you don't already read WantNot.net, I recommend it. I got 3 pairs of Adios skate shoes for my boys last night... reg price $68 a pair, for $19.95 each!! Amazing deal. Great site.

One more thing... have you ever heard of Angel Food Ministries? You might want to check out their site. They offer good food at cheaper prices than most grocery stores. All you do is order it, and then you have to pick it up from the host site.

I'm seriously looking into it.
