Hello!! Spring Updates :)

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Hey Sparkers!

Long time, no talk ;)

It's been a crazy .....7 months?! Totally nuts.

First of all, I'm almost done with my first year of grad school. One week of projects + finals and I'm done! I feel like I've been in school foreverrrrrrr. It's been really crazy but I'm trying to make it work between working 20+ hours, commuting 1.5 hours a day, taking 4 classes, homework (ugh, homework) and actually seeing my boy, dog and family. I'll be glad for a break after June (when my 2 summer classes are done!).

Second of all, I've definitely lost my fitness ability. In the last few months, my activity has been paltry, at best. No yoga, no running, no weights...nothing...and it shows! I haven't gained much weight but I am definitely not as toned and don't feel as good about myself mentally and physically. I miss it so much and can't wait to get back into a routine.

I'm hoping that routine will kick my butt in gear for our wedding next summer....that's right....we got engaged!!! :) Doug and I are getting married next June when I'm done with grad school and I cannot wait. I am thrilled to be marrying to best guy in the world and really want to look and feel fabulous on our day.

So here's to new chapters and feeling fabulous!!

How are all of YOU?! emoticon

    Ahhh!!! Congrats on the engagement, lady! Glad to hear from you! I know grad school can be tough---just don't let it rule over your life! Get some me (and Doug time for that matter) in every once in a while. I'm so happy for you!
