WODs - Dec 2&3 and When Do You Blog?

Hi Hi!! Happy Tuesday morning afternoon to you all!

Yesterday came and went super fast - I didn't even have a chance to workout until after the boys went to bed! (Or I chose to blog and catch up on reading your blogs during nap time...whatever...priorities, people!!)

I ended up doing a quick 10-minute HIIT routine - that I came up with only a few minutes prior to the workout! - and it was great!

Simple, body weight exercises are just the way to go sometimes!

Today (Tuesday) started out with a 2 mile run in the brisk morning air - it was lovely and FAST for me!

I'm going to do a Bender workout in a few but I'm not sure which one yet...something with more toning than cardio since I ran this morning...I'll fill you in tomorrow!

So last week I had my 3-month blogging anniversary (Happy Anniversary to ME....yea!!) and it got me thinking...I still haven't really found my blogging groove.  Let me explain.

Tell me, Stella, how DO I get my groove back??
I am super detail oriented.  I love Excel and spreadsheets and highlighters and color-coordinating...you get the idea.  But I've been feeling like my posts are a little disorganized...sometimes I don't know what I'm blogging about until I actually sit down to type - which is fine for some days, but I needed more order!

So a few weeks ago I decided to start planning my posts - novel concept, I know! ;)  I'm just writing notes down on a legal pad so it's nothing fancy.  But I get my thoughts together for the next week or 2 so I know what I'll be blogging about.  Makes sense, right?  So that really helped with some of the problem.....but the other aspect of my problem is still up in the air...

I don't know when in my day to blog!?!

Do I do it when my little one is napping? {but that's when I like to workout} Do I wait and blog at night when both boys are sleeping? {but I'm tired and just want to chill} Should I try and blog something in the morning while the kids are eating breakfast? {who am I kidding - there's no time in the mornings!}  What about knocking out a few posts on a Sunday afternoon? {but that's family time}  No time seems right!

For the last few weeks I've been doing a little blogging right when my little one goes down for a nap and a majority of it when both kids are asleep for the night.....I don't want this blog to take any time from my family, obviously, so that is what's working - for now!

We all have other priorities - families, kids, jobs, life, friends - and I know what's right for you may not be right for me....but when do you blog?
