Why I've been MIA... Even Though You Probably Didn't Notice.

Pin It I really want to be one of those bloggers who takes those beautiful photos of them looking sexy after just working out, finishes the photo with some cool filter thing that makes it look like it was taken in the 1960s, and then cursively writes something motivational across the photo like "Never Give Up with Fit In Heels!" or "Fit In Heels Early Morning Runski!"

Unfortunately, I haven't have the time.

Okay, I lied. I have no clue how to do that shit.

While no one but probably my Mom and Sister have noticed, I have been completely MIA from blogging lately. Mostly because I've been eating Mini Eggs and wine as full meals (hence why I'm hosting a DietBet starting ONE WEEK today), but also because we bought a house, sold a house, did not live in our house that was being sold for over a week, and oh yeah... this guy.

To answer your question, yes, this is as wide as my eyes would open. 
I am SO EXCITED that we sold our house. Our new house was a ginormous surprise that we stumbled upon, happened to bid for, and get (we planned on selling our house first and buying after)! It had a closing date of May 27th, and we hadn't even listed our house at the time we bought. That being said, we keep finding ourselves shrieking in bed at night thanking our lucky stars that it is ours. You read that right- shrieking in bed. So, on top of caring for a newborn and trying to fit in workouts, we had to work our asses off getting our current house ready to go on the market.

We move in 6 weeks (!!!) so we have been tirelessly packing, staging, cleaning, getting rid of tons of shit from our old house, and buying more shit for our new house. It's been a stressful, tiring, and LONG 2 weeks since we bought our dream home, and this weekend, our current house SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDD (please only read this in the way that a European soccer announcer would yell GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!)!

I am so excited to have more space, a great backyard, a kitchen with an island, an ensuite, 2nd floor laundry, one of those water dispenser thingys on the fridge, and a HOME GYM IN THE BASEMENT!!!

Note: this is the seller's photo. I will not have a lounge chair in my home gym.
Perhaps a bar, though.  
The previous owner ran her pilates business out of the basement (one side will be a rec room and the other our home gym... Even as I type this I can't believe it... I have a gym. In my house. Mother F.). There are floor to ceiling mirrors (selfieeeeeeeee) and plenty of space for me to jump rope, kettlebell, clean, and snatch that mofo into a sweaty pulp.

I have no idea what I just said.

I promise to bring you many, many NEW workouts coming at you from my basement. In the meantime, choose your own adventure!

I also promise to be funnier again, one day.

What is something you'd love to have in your home? Besides a wine cellar. 


  1. Congrats on the new house and your other house selling so fast! It sounds like the new house is the perfect space for you guys. Good luck with the move!
