I haven't blogged in well over a year.
When I read that last entry, I think "Really? I felt that?" Because the blog was all about how I was on SB diet and felt great. Well, as things sometimes work, I totally stopped again.
But in the interim year, I did accomplish a lot of things. I got a great job that I truly loved, then quit that job so I could move cross country for my family. Got another job that I'm still not sure if I love or not (but I do like it, just don't know how much). Lost 25lb and gained back 10 during the move process.
It is interesting the way that things work. Sunday night I decided I couldn't continue to try to do this on my own - it isn't working for me. So I fired up the computer and logged back into SP. And made a vow to really work the program this time.
Lo and behold, when I got to work the next day, there was a Biggest Loser Challenge sign up page on my unit (I work in a hospital). I wrote my name down quicker than you can say "30-day Shred."
I will win this challenge. I always, always work better with external goals. Plus, I'm new at work and they don't have any idea how crazy competitive I can get. Maybe an external challenge like this is what I needed all along.
