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.

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.

Hi there I read your response regarding 1/2 marathon races - corporate vs local and even though I am running my first race in October I know i would prefer the large one for the security - close streets and bling (that i know i pay for) i will get with the race (cool max shirt and beautiful medal). My friend ran the Disney and absolutely loved it - it is was to keep in mind for my future runs :)

small advice for the big drive: download more than one... Stephen King can get a bit dreary. i love Dean Koontz and I found it so hard to do a heavy book on my drive. I opted for Tina Fay's book, something to keep me laughing. And sometimes if I cant get into a book, then I have to change it up for something else.. and it can take 2-3 books to try to get into before i find The One :)

I was glad I didn't decide to put it off. I'll need to check that out. I bought so much stuff before I decided to eat I guess you would say clean, so I want to eat that stuff instead of throwing it out...limited budget. But I did grocery shop so I could make my breakfast, dinners and snacks as clean as possible. Looks like lunch will still be processed for now :/. I'm getting into cooking more..so I'll need to look into recipes. I'm excited...just knowing it is September makes you feel better.
