The Truth of Amy Ruth

Truth time...

I'm not feeling it lately!  Not feeling the blog, not feeling the health train, nothing!  While I hoped my motivation would return by joining the Rocktober challenge, it has not!

I have no reasons for not feeling it.  In fact, it has been a year long struggle if I am being honest.  Perhaps it's because I have been on this ride for almost 8 years, activity, but a lifetime in another sense.

Thanks to Ashley over at A Dreamer On A Journey for sending me a message on Facebook to remind me it had been too long since I blogged.  I just felt like I had nothing much worthwhile posting about.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm by no means giving up.  I try to start fresh nearly everyday.  I just can't make it my own yet.

To those who follow me...Thanks!  It does mean a lot and I still have faith that I can do this!

Happy Rocktober Everyone!

On one of the many weight loss blogs I follow, the host created a challenge for the month of October to help people rock it out!

Jess over at Operation Skinny Jeans put this together, complete with Facebook page and everything!  Make sure you check it out!

She has given us a set of "rules" for the month or rather, things to complete and when it's all done, you have a chance to win a prize!

Let's be real here....I need accountability...LOTS of it!  More than what I had in place and I wanted to really get October on track before my surgery in November where I will be home and am unsure how long I will be laid up

Through this challenge, we were asked to pick an accountabilibuddy.  That term is FaBuLoUs by the way!

I've paired up with a lovely woman from France.  I'm going to break out my worst French and together we will give each other pep talks to keep us going strong and successful through the month of October!!
