first of all, i'm sorry to all my SP friends. i know i basically vanished! but i'm trying to be back as much as possible!
from january, my job got a LOT more intense. in a good way. i was busy and happy and working my butt off. which is how i like it. of course, this meant that i didn't have time for SP at work, and i was often so tired in the evening that i put all my energy into spending time with my man, rather than disappearing into the internet for hours.
in april, we got married. it was casual and wonderful, but there was a lot of last minute family bullsh!t that i didn't appreciate. but we got through it all and i am now a very happily married lady. i keep trying to post pictures, but it's not working so far. will keep attempting - so far only have one that has uploaded.
now, it looks like there is MORE change at work, so who knows what that will mean, although i believe i will have more time...
from a diet and fitness perspective, things have been good. starting in january, i started doing a LOT more classes at the gym. i had a routine that had me traveling around the city so that i could be with my preferred instructors doing my preferred classes. then, wedding time hit and all the out of town guests arrived and i didn't get to the gym for about 2 months. i'm slowly getting back into a rhythm, but obviously it's difficult. i still go to my zumba class once a week, but i'm not fit enough to handle boot camp at the moment. once my fitness is improved again, i'll try to get back into it. with food, it was a bit of a free-for-all around the wedding - i had guests from all over the world visiting south africa, which meant showing them all the nice places (and food) this country has to offer. but on the whole, i was well behaved and didn't really damage my body. just missed out on exercise, which wasn't very good.
and now, i'm doing well. it's freezing winter here in joburg now, so making lots of soups. it is a great motivation to go to the gym - at least when i'm at the end of the zumba class, i am completely warmed up! no need for heat in the car after that!
so all is well. hope i can catch up on everyone else's progress!
