A year ago on this day I was starting my new job in North Carolina, rediscovering how much I missed sports after finding a fastpitch softball league, and recovering from my first bad date in Raleigh the night before.
Today I went to work at a job I love, that affords me amazing opportunities for professional development and travel, went to the gym after work, then came home to a beautiful house I share with my boyfriend of seven months.
Life changes people. Life can change fast. It’s awesome and scary and leaves me looking around at times and just saying “whoa…”
One thing that hasn’t changed? My weight. Right in the 225ish range. And I’ll admit, I’ve been pretty apathetic about it. Dealing with the divorce and major life changes (moving, new job) took priority, and I fell into my usual habits of eating too much, exercising too little, and tugging at my clothes uncomfortable.
Don’t get me wrong though: overall I’m very, very happy! I’ve made great friends, been on amazing adventures and am really having the time of my life in North Carolina. But now that life is settling into a rhythm I’m ready to try and get healthy again. Being more comfortable in my skin would just make everything else more awesome.
So I’m back people! I’m going to try and blog at least once a week because it helps to center me and keep me focused. Right now my healthy living strategies are:
- Log my food
- Work out at least 3-4 days a week
- Walk dogs daily
- Drink more water
If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again…
