So lately I've been feeling a bit nostalgic that summer is almost over! Where has this year gone? Does anyone else feel this way?
I guess for me so much has happened this year that time has just flown by (ie. My break-up with my ex earlier this year was a major life event, my moving into a new place and all my health issues). Before we know it we will all be shopping for holiday gifts! Ugh!!
I've been spending a lot more time reading. It has always been a passion of mine, but for a while I had stopped reading altogether. The book that put me back on the "reading" saddle was the Twilight Saga books. OK OK so yes they are "Teen" books, but I still thought they were great! and I'm such an Edward Cullen fan now!!! Oh yea Stephanie Meyer the author is great too!! LOL
Has anyone read her adult book "The Host"? I'm thinking about it.
So what have I been doing since my last blog? Well I have been going to Zumba and the gym more often. I've been pretty good (not great) about watching what I eat, but I'm still struggling with journaling my meals and exercise. I just feel like it takes too much time!! so I have no idea if I've been staying in my calories or not; and the fact that I've only maintained my weight for the past few months makes me realize that I have to get better at this.
My ex and I are working things out. I know things were so bad between us for a while, but he still has my heart, and I must report that things have gotten better. I'm still trying to do my own thing though, and only going out with him if he makes the plans. I've committed to not inviting him anywhere or being the one to call him. So that has been working out for us for now. I'm still also trying to get out more and see if I meet new people. I'm not going to devote myself to him like before unless I see real change... if someone else comes along I will give them a chance. Who knows!
Next week I'll be going to FL to visit my parents for a week so I'm very excited! I'm going for Labor Day. Hoping that I won't go over board with mom's cooking so I'll have to prepare and stay strong. Wish me luck all!!
The dilemma I'm having now is clothes! Although I'm not complaining that everything in my closet is too big; it is becoming a problem because I now have nothing to wear. I also can't afford to spend the $$ on a whole new wardrobe especially when I plan to lose a lot more weight. So I just have to deal with what I have... or thinking of just buying like a few transition pieces.
Thank you to everyone who has read my previous blogs and supported me through all my challenges earlier this year!! This year so far has been a tough year for me! I'm hoping that the 2nd half of the year just stays positive for me!!
