Moving Forward in 2014

2013 ended up being a terribly rough year for me. I switched to a new job which caused me an exponential amount of stress; my mom was diagnosed with cancer; and my relationship of 2 years ended.

I went into 2014 vowing to turn my life around and so far, I've done just that. I'm separating from the military, moving across the country back to my hometown in NJ, and starting a new job. I'm also currently training for my first full marathon on October 19th.

I still need to lose 15-20lbs to get my weight back to where I'm comfortable with it and I know it will take time.

I LOVE working out, but I'm not so great at eating healthy. I love to read books, scrapbook, cross stitch, dance, and attempt to cook new recipes.

My favorite TV shows are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Haven, The Vampire Diaries, The Witches of East End, and Falling Skies. I also love all home decorating and home buying shows - I am obsessed with HGTV!!

My favorite books are Bellefleur by Joyce Carol Oates, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, and The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.

Thanks for all your comments on my recent blogs. I just shouted you out in my newest blog -- you've been a big help. I totally understand what you're going through with Colorado Springs -- it sucks feeling like you don't fit in! But I'm glad you have an exit strategy -- I'm working on mine!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks meal planning is completely overwhelming! It is just food! But I have too much other stuff to deal with. I sat down last night and wrote down some ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks (I actually cheated, I have a book with 3 pages of 150 calorie snacks so that helped!). I really like the idea of just rotating the basic foods until I'm used to it. I just get worried that I'll get bored and over indulge one day! We'll see!

Are you allowed dark chocolate? With 21dsd you can have doark chocolate. The darker the better. Let me know either way:)

Fruit often helps, but choose low glycemic fruits like berries and green apples that won't spike your blood sugar.
