New Year, Crummy Health

Happy New Year, everyone!

Now that the dumpster fire that was 2016 is over, let's hope 2017 is the redemption arc year. Anyway, I've been pretty quiet here because I travelled back east for the holidays where I promptly got sick on Christmas Eve and have been since. I may possibly have pneumonia at this point, but worry not, going to doctor later today. Oh, and I also was recently diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, which explains the past 20 years of insomnia issues I've had. :/

Anyway, given my health decided to kick off the new year with a sad trombone, I'm going to take some more down time and a blog break to get better and also think about the creative direction for Roaming Holiday going into 2017.

It's clear I really need to work on my blog photography, and I think I need to re-evaluate content as a whole as well and figure out more ways to have unique, engaging content that doesn't feel bog standard and generic. 

So I suppose my resolutions, in the immediate, get my health in order and do some creative content soul-searching.

I hope you're all doing well and have a lot of great things planned this year! What resolutions have you made for 2017? Let's talk in the comments!

Pause, Hit Rewind

The past couple of weeks have been a mixed bag of crazy. Two weeks ago on a Friday, I gave myself a mild concussion which left me out of sorts for the next few days. A new position opened up in my team at work that I'm applying for, which has been a little anxiety-riddling. Cut forward to this past weekend, I woke up early Saturday morning with moderate lower abdomen cramping and tried to be a trooper about it, but ultimately ended up at urgent care on Sunday with what they've diagnosed right now as an intestinal cramp. I did not know this was a thing.

 Suffice to say, it's put the C25k training on pause, and I think I just need to start week 5 over because there's no way in hell I'm physically ready to jog for 20 minutes straight. I really still don't like running and I think I'm going to opt to devote more time to strength training and getting better at bicycle riding and make a return to the elliptical when this is all over. If running is your thing, you do you, more power to you, but for me it's just not my fave. 

Moving along, I have a few beauty posts upcoming as well a travel related one talking about Virgin Elevate. 

London time is creeping up fast, six more weeks!
