I’m a little behind

So technically it’s Day 15 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge and I am a little behind on my daily blog posts.

I have really struggled on the weekends. The first weekend I missed 3 days because we were celebrating the 4th of July.

This past weekend we were celebrating my Dad’s 60th birthday.  We spent the whole weekend swimming in my sister’s pool and visiting with the family members that were in town for the celebration.

I started really strong last week, creating 2 posts a day in an attempt to catch up on the 3 days that I missed the first week.  I ended up missing Thursday and Friday (in addition to Saturday and Sunday) to help my sister get her house ready for the out of town guests.

So this week I am starting off 5 posts behind.

The “Old Me” would have given up and stopped doing the challenge all together figuring it is just too much for me.

I love that the “New Me” is now someone who finishes what they start and is still committing to finishing this 30 post challenge before the end of July.  It doesn’t even worry me that my family will be on vacation for the last 4 days of the month.

I love that I have gone from someone who was lucky to create a blog post once a month to someone who can create 2 blog posts a day!

I love that I have successfully created 11 blog posts in the last 15 days.

I love that I am not feeling bad or guilty about the days that I missed.

I love that I am confident that I can finish strong.

I love how much better it feels to focus on what is going right!

I would love to hear how the Challenge is going for you! 

Are you keeping up with a post everyday? 

Have you missed any days? 

What are you enjoying about the Challenge?


  1. I’m staying somewhere without internet right now so I’m WAYY behind. I’m going to try to catch up but I’m not sure I’ll be able to do it.

      No internet, that can definitely slow you down. Are you still writing posts everyday that you can post when you have internet access again? Wait…if you don’t have internet, how are you commenting? :) I believe in you Amanda! If I can catch up, you can too! Thanks so much for commenting!

  2. Wow! You are rocking it! I love that you are sticking with it! That is the sign of true success. I just joined this challenge 3 days ago but I feel very blessed to be part of this group.
    This challenge has been inspiring and I am loving the blog posts from everyone. Keep rocking it! #inspired

      Awe, thanks so much Katrina! This is a great group, which I think is part of why I am committed to sticking with it! I have a strong suspicion this will be the first of many Ultimate Blog Challenges that I take on!
