A Long Over Due Update

Monday, February 20, 2012

Hey everyone!!
I know that I've been MIA for months and I know that so many of you have sent me messages and sparkgoodies and I appreciate it all, I'm sorry that I haven't gotten back to you! Things have been super busy for me lately and I barely have time for myself let alone sparking time. So since I have a little bit of time to say something now before I workout I will have to keep it short and sweet.

I went on my vacation over the summer and had a GREAT time, the weather was beautiful and the house was gorgeous! It was a great time with great people and I would to be able to go again. Before I left on vacation though I had a job interview to go on for a much better job and possibilities and I got the job! So after vacation ended I started the new job the week after. Craziness! So far I've been there for 5 months and I love it, it was a great opportunity and I couldn't pass it up. A week after starting my job though my roommate told me that she wanted to move to FL in three months even though she told me she wasn't going to move until the summer and thus started my crazy search for a place to live. Thankfully I was able to find a place and this time I'm by myself, no more roommates! If I hadn't started this new job I would not had been able to afford it so I'm so thankful that things ended up working out for me. I did a second job though because I really didn't have any stuff for a place only bedroom furniture, so needless to say I've been busy. I wish I had more time to spark but I just don't but hopefully in the future that will change.

So since the summer I managed to only gain some weight, about 7-8 pounds. While I'm not thrilled with the gain, things were so crazy for me and for about 2 weeks I lived with my Aunt until my place was ready and had to eat what was accessible instead of being to make my own meals. I'm really trying to get back into the swings of things with my calories and all but I have to say I'm sick of counting calories, I'm just done with it BUT I know that if I want to achieve the body that I've always wanted and not gain back all the weight that I lost that I almost do not have a choice right now. I'm still working out but not like I used to and I have to say I definitely miss it! My new work schedule makes working out in the morning hard and I hate doing ST in the afternoon with the gym being super crowded so I need to work out a new plan for ST. Things will fall into place soon, I'm sure that they will so for right now I'm going to continue to do what I have to do.

Well I really need to go get started on my exercise but I do have a full day ahead of me of things to do, it never ends! I hope that everything is will with all you sparklers and I thank you guys for all the kind words of encouragement even though I haven't been around. Hopefully I'll be able again soon!
