Things That Make Me Happy - Part 1 (Take 2)

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Well, it's been a long time. A long long time. A lot has happened since I last blogged on August 21, 2011. I moved across the country, started a new job (which I love), gained back 2/3 of the weight I had lost, decided the whole "marriage" thing wasn't really working out, ended that, and am now (for the most part) happier and more optimistic than I've been in years.

As part of becoming the person I want to be I decided it was time to start blogging again. So here I go, back to the easiest thing I know how to do: my weekly "happy list."

1. Being smarter than a partner in front of the client.
2. Making an unexpected new friend.
3. Bacon-wrapped blue-cheese stuffed dates.
4. Meeting a friend at the gym for time on the elliptical and a round of dumbbell conditioning.
5. Ordering new bedding I picked out all by myself BECAUSE I CAN!


This is My "Sassy Face"

A few weeks ago a photographer friend was trying to decide whether to switch from a Canon to a Nikon and needed a model to compare the cameras. Since I'm a raging narcissist who loves to have her picture taken...

Otherwise known as: Where It's At.

I last blogged almost three months ago. That's forever ago. Since then I've...

Passed the Bar. Hello lawyer.

Embarked on a major home renovation project at my mom's house. Slept on the floor for weeks.

Hit 135 on the scale. A new adult low. Mostly based around stress, though, not good habits.

And, oh yeah, gotten married.'s been a wild ride! Not all that Sparky of a ride, though, which is why I've been reluctant to blog here. Not great food choices, not much exercising, not enough water. My weight hasn't gone up, but I'm guessing that's muscle loss!

I need to get back with the program! I have an unused gym membership and an epic ton of personal training sessions waiting for me to use. I have summer produce I should cook. I'm going to be starting work October 5th, and I want to be starting out with a head start, fully on the healthy train.

Let's rock this!

Oh! And a wedding photo for good measure. I'll post a few more when I have one that better shows how I looked in my dress (this is from the teaser pics), but this is my favorite. :)
