I was on SP and noticed that my last blog was in April! So much has happened since then. I don't want to go into too much detail so I'm going to sum up the last 7 months in a few lines.
Was doing really well with eating and exercise and got down to 205 by June (From 242). Was feeling amazing, did a sprint triathlon and was up to running 4-5 miles steady. Clothes were getting to big and things were going great until...I inured my lower back and things went downhill. It's been 4-5 months since my injury and I'm still not 100%. I'm now at 219 and wishing I was back losing not gaining. I'm feeling motivated again but school has been kicking my trash recently and I've struggled with consistency. Wish me luck.
But on a more positive note, it is Thanksgiving today! True that I am Canadian, and our Thanksgiving was last month, but since we are living in KY currently today is the big day. I'm sometimes tempted to whine and complain about thing but really, I have so much to be thankful for. Here are a few of them (In no particular order)
I am grateful for Nutella. This stuff is amazing, and a contributing factor to why I am the way I am.
I'm not a fan of the show (I'm more of a Seinfeld guy) but I am grateful for wonderful friends.
Although this is only a temporary home for us until I graduate, I love this place and the people who live here.
The wonderful families my wife and I came from.
I am grateful for the example of Jesus Christ.
Although my wife wishes I looked more like this guy, I'm grateful to have a fully functional body, even if its not in its ideal form....yet.
I'm grateful for my trusty bike which I've had since I was 15, that gets me and my books to school and back rain or shine. (In case you were wondering, this isn't me.)
I am grateful for all things Puerto Rican. I lived there for two yrs as a missionary and love that place.
Im grateful for these wonderful countries.
I am so grateful for these two. They are the greatest joys in my life.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
