Sorry i've been gone for so long. Life has been busy shall we say. I quit my day job to work my awesome home job of making pasties in July. It has been a dream come true. I will never go back to working for 'the man'. when i quit i debated working a small parttime job to make sure i had enough money. but my home job keeps me so busy i have no time for a part time job.
exercise, lets see since i work at home now i've started using the high school track for 'jogging'. now mind you i've never ever been a jogger. And a few years ago i stressed my hip out and it would give me issues if i walked longer than 30-40 minutes. So i started out slow with just walking the track as long as my hip could take it. usually about 40 minutes. The first week my hip was so stiff i couldn't bend my leg at all by the time i got home. getting up the stairs to my apartment was fun.
The next week most of the pain was gone. Which means i've been a wussy this whole time. I just needed to work it out.
Now the only part of me that hurts every once in a while is my groin muscle. I have no clue why.
So i went from no jogging to being able to jog for 5 minutes straight. I did it for the first time yesterday. I know it's not a huge deal for most people but it is to me.
since i've started jogging i've gained a few pounds and i doubt it was fun the exercise. So yesterday i decided to start South Beach Diet phase 1 to clear out my system. I've been eating a lot of carbs and sugar recently and that is not something i need or want to continue doing. Hell i had fallen in love with cereal again, which will probably be my downfall. lol So yesterday i did a half day and it was all good no problems at all. I went to Trader Joes and Limbo for a bunch of fresh veggies and some other things like hummus , eggs, and meat. I'm determined to go 'high veggie' this time around so i actually get all i can out of these two weeks and hopefully develop some new good habits.

Ok i did it, I went out on a log and took a jump. In my quest of trying to find new foods to eat for breakfast and snacks. I bought some organic cereal and Soy Milk... So tried Light Vanilla Soy milk today. Not bad at all. It's a good replacement for my skim milk. Not that i drink milk that often (only in coffee) This discovery makes me glad i tried it. The only other time i've had soy milk was from 8 years ago when someone made me a coffee and it had some nasty soy milk in it. needless to say i didn't want to try that again.
Oh and my bike rides are still awesome.

Well it's finally not dark out anymore while riding to work. Granted I didn't get to ride more than 2 weeks out of last month due to the craptacular weather. So far april has been good, a bit cold (33 this morning) but it's warming up for my ride home.
I loaded up 2 new pics from a masquerade ball last weekend. Feel free to take a peek!
Not much more to update on. Still busy, my day job is killing me. my night job is fabulous.
