Where is Amy? And a Note.....

Lately, life has been a whirlwind. Every day, I make a mental note to log in and share something, but then the day just kind of gets away from me! Has anyone else noticed that time has been seeming to speed up at an increasingly alarming rate? Or is it just Life? I can not believe that it has been nearly a month since I last loggin in and blogged!!! So Here's my story...

Well, I have been deal blogging for a long time ( 2 yrs) and while I Love to Blog, and share deals, this is a Hobby for me. I do not make a measurable amount of money by blogging. As of lately, I obviously have put this blog on the back burner, and instead, have been dedicating more time to God ( daily devotionals come before blogging), my Family, my House, my Health and so on so forth. Also, my life has dramatically changed in the past few months. Due to my love for "freebies" I received a coupon for a Free Smoothie at a local nutrition club in my area. Of course, I loved the smoothie and found out that I could also lose weight by drinking them, and they are healthy (220 calories and 24 grams of protein). When I went on to learn that I could get a discount for them, and possibly earn an income, I said "Sign me UP!" Fast Forward to today, I have lost 20 pounds and over 30 inches! I am so much happier now, and I have a ton of energy & I'm loving it. I am also now working part time at the local nutrition club, and now teaching and helping others to lose weight. I have also started a new blog about health/nutrition that is primarily focused on my new business. You can find my new blog at Bodymindlifemakeover.com.

So anyway, as many of you know, deal-blogging is very time consuming, and obviously my time is being stretched these days. When I first started deal blogging, there weren't too many like me, and I felt like I was doing something important, helping others to save their hard earned money! Now, there is a deal blog on every corner. Literally hundreds, of deal bloggers are everywhere now, and sometimes spending several hours finding the deals, then posting them seems redundant. There are so many deal bloggers out there that are doing a much better job than I am! I have been really thinking about and praying a lot, and seriously thinking about quitting this blog, but I love blogging, like I said it is my hobby! So, alas, I feel like God has different plans for me and this blog. I firmly believe that we all should be good stewards with what we are given, money, and taking care of our health too. I have been changing our eating habits in our household, and find myself using coupons for processed foods (and such) less and less. Now, don't get me wrong, I am still an avid couponer, and I will always be a frugal gal. I still use coupons, and I am still trying to be the best steward with what God has blessed our family with. However, I have decided to leave the deal posting to the other deal finders. I still want to blog as often as I can, it might not be daily, but as often as I can squeeze some extra time in. I really don't want to quit blogging here, so please make sure to check in often, but I can't promise a daily post like I used to! But I am back, and I hope that you'll stay and check out some of the awesome posts that I have lined up!

Thanks for your loyalty and for understanding!!! I appreciate each and every one of my readers!!!
