In The Know

BALANCE.

Isn’t that what EVERYONE strives to acheive?  At least that’s what everyone talks about, including me. I like to pretend I’m striving for something MORE than balance, something that sounds ‘cooler’ and more unique. But…

..that’s really just another way of saying I’m striving for balance. Balance between steamed broccoli (ugh!) and lobster mac n’ cheese (yum!). Balance between having a fun, cocktail filled night and falling asleep at 7:52(PM!!!) on Friday night. Balance between wanting to raise a family and wanting a high power career…but I guess that can be decided later. And my husband hopes MUCH later. :)

Balance between:

Assorted fruit

 

 AND

chocolate

I didn’t really start to blog in order to find balance. I started to blog because I’m BORED. Confused, frazzled, dramatic, crazy, and manic are all on the list too. I am a newleywed in the midst of changing careers, and for the first time I really have to be a GROWN UP.

I do not like it one bit.

I won’t lie.

I hate it.  

However, there are many things I absolutely LOVE. I am extremely passionate (which, at times is synonomus with insane) about life in general. I love life. I especially love MY life. I have been very blessed, lucky, fortunate – whatever you want to call it – I have a great life! I got married in October of 08 to a wonderful guy. We can call him ‘Mr. Hunt’ – a nickname that my irritating loveable brother named him in the beginning since he was older than me by 10 years. Well, ok, it is really 9 years, but I AM known to be dramatic.

I am the oldest of 3 and suffer a bit from ‘first child syndrome,’ constantly trying to please everyone and beating myself up when I don’t. I love, love, LOVE to bake – which most likely came from my grandmother who was the queen of making excellent pies. I also love to cook, yet hate using recipes. It takes all the fun and creativeness out of things. I am a certified personal trainer, have an undying passion for fitness and health, and love to hang out with my hubby and family.

That is me in a nutshell.

Oh yeah.

One more thing.

I usually am always right. And by usually, I mean always.

Welcome aboard. Here’s to finding balance, while pretending we aren’t looking. :)

Cheers!

    Balance is such a tricky thing and I know we all strive for it but especially when we are trying to figure out the rest of our lives!

    It IS hard to stay sane when things are changing all around you. Good luck finding a balance — it’s something we’d all like to do :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed your blog. When you find that balance thing let me know. I’m still working on finding mine. It’s always changing.

    I’m smiling as I read your post. When you hit 55 balance just sort of happens. Till then you are always striving to achieve it…pulled all over the place!

    Now what I need is your spirit of loving exercise…or you living at my house. I can provide you with plenty of zen balance (years of corporate experience!) and you can harp on me to exercise dragging me kicking and screaming to the mat, the gym, the track or wherever!

    I too am the oldest child and so suffer with the same as you. I want to please everyone and put a lot of pressure on myself to do that. And I too am always right, except I don’t think my bf agrees with this!!
