Summer is over. The DefineYOU Retreat has come and gone. And the days are getting shorter and shorter. I’m far from a fan of the colder weather and darker days, but what it does give me is more time to work on sharing some of the content I have created for you a bit more regularly on the blog… did anyone notice my last post was way back on July 1st, over 3 months ago?! When they tell you this blogging life isn’t easy, there’s no doubt about that but it’s totally worth it when someone tries your recipe and then reaches out to say how much they loved it!

Although I’ve been posting a lot less regularly lately, I still feel pretty good about where this platform has brought me thus far. I’ve learned that it’s ok to not post on Instagram when there isn’t time. I’ve learned that the followers of this platform who are following for the right reasons won’t get pissed when I don’t share a new blog for >3months. I’ve learned that it’s ok to recognize that I need a break and then openly admit it to others. I’ve learned that even when I’m away, this platform is always on my mind and I’m constantly brainstorming new ideas and events that I can bring to the table.

During this time away, I definitely haven’t been completely checked out. I continued to work on the behind the scene stuff that needs to happen before I can publish any new content. I shot new workouts with videos, I tested and photographed new recipes, I traveled to new places {and can’t wait to share that blog with you, I planned and hosted the 2nd annual DefineYOU Retreat and obviously, Austin and I have worked many, many hours on transforming the exterior of our home… and we’re still not quite done;)

Fun as it’s been, I’m more than ready to get back to the forward facing side of the blog and with that, let’s dive right in to my latest recipe post! These Brownie Batter Protein Balls are perfect for a pre/post gym bite, on-the-go snacking or healthy fuel to keep you energized for hours while hiking, biking or simply spending time in the great outdoors.
