It's a beautiful new day today, and I am taking a deep breath, letting go of the past, and embarking on a new road.

My Goals:
To reach 150 pounds by the end of 2014!

To become more consistent in my ability to care for myself and my health, even when life brings struggles.

To grow in my self-expression as a loving presence, toward myself and others whose lives I touch.

My Program:
A work in progress!

I want to work specifically on reducing my emotional eating (boredom, comfort, stress, etc).

Other Information:
I made huge strides in my health journey in 2011 - I lost 40 pounds! 2012 was more of a rollercoaster - I mostly maintained my weight in the 160s, with some wobbles during life's ups and downs. I also went on an amazing trip to Europe, and completed C25K, and ran my first 5K in June 2012.

In the winter of 2012-2013, I began juggling a new relationship and a new job, and the combination of holiday-eating, love-eating, and stress-eating, and winter-exercise-slacking, was killer!

Now I see the light at the end of the tunnel - I have a dissertation defense date set for Spring 2014, and a job lined up for once I graduate. I am beginning anew.

Hey sweetcheeks. I am so sorry I missed your blog comment. I don't know if it was that I missed it, or meant to reply to it and forgot, but it was more likely that you posted it while I was going through the emotional turmoil/pain of being a separated newlywed. I am doing better now but I really had a rough go of things for several months. I got married July 13th and we separated 1 month later. September 26th I moved back in with my parents, and have been busy substitute teaching, hoping and praying to get a teaching offer somewhere for the 2014-2015 school year.

The good news is I took my anger, resentment towards Greg and the despair that the demise of my new marriage filled me with and I fueled it into my workouts. I kicked more a$$ than I ever have in the 3.5 years I have been on this journey and am at the lowest weight I have been in over a decade. I am only 7.2 lbs away from hitting the 100 lbs lost marker. :)

I am so very excited for you and proud of you that you got such an amazing job lined up and I know how excited you must be to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel with school. I am happy to hear that you are in a relationship and I hope he makes you really happy.

I promise to do better on keeping in touch. I have missed you.

Hi! It was so nice to hear from you! I really need to get back on here more frequently, but a lot is going on. Some good some bad. All stressful which means I've been eating like a junkie. LOL Gained way too much weight. Gotta start over. Sigh.

How have you been? While WAS still on here, I missed seeing you around. Still with the boy?

Talk to you later!

Hey you! When did you get back on here? I was so pleased to see you on my feed. I have missed you! A lot has happened since we last talked. Got married, got separated, ran a half marathon, got into the 170's for the first time in over a decade. :) See what all you missed? LOL

I'm doing good, thank you! Yes, there is a HP challenge going on, it's Challengers of Hogwarts, and we just started our winter*term. If you're interested, I'll get you details, and perhaps you can join the next term. It's great fun, and has helped me stay motivated, even in the midst of some crazy work, what with juggling 2 jobs and all. Let me know!
