AWOL! not MIA! I'm here, just on my terms :)

Monday, October 17, 2011

OMG. This is my biggest beef about SparkPeople's blogging style -- many a times have I written an entry and then I'm nearly done and it freezes / disapears / goes away to the land of unicorns. I seriously detest the pop-up screens. UGH!

SO! I will not do a big photo post.

Which I just spent major time making.
... and then it offed its self.

SO, here is the jist of it:

I am not MIA from SP --- I'm just AWOL --- I log-in when I've lost weight (I'm dancing around 194) to change my weight-tracker, and I randomly check out blogs to find some inspiration now and again. But the amount of time it would take to make a nice structured blog entry, I spend walking, treadmilling, working, cleaning, hanging out with friends. I'm living life.

I just joined the YMCA this past Friday --- I`ve been surviving on my excercise being walking with the dog and using my parents treadmill 2-3 times a week since this past winter - but I need something new, more stuff, and need to really work on building more muscle in my arms (I can fly! I`ve got wings!) - so I`ll be going on my days off and then once midweek before I head home from work.

My previous attempt at blogging, had 7 or so photos in it, but I`m not even going to bother, so here are the two you get - this horrible, photo which is from May 2009 - a year before I started my journey ---

and here is my saucy self, August 2011 up north ---

Work it! (and credit to Ben of Bendoeslife for posting forever ago about posing with your hands angled like that your waist to take off inches magically. Bwhaha.

OK .... one more... cus my mom and I are the absolute cutest, yes?

    Great job on the weight loss!!! You look fantastic. As far as being AWOL, take it on your own terms. You are doing great. No one says you have to log in everyday, blog everyday or post everyday. Just do what you can, when you can and celebrate your victories!!!
