I totally got consumed with nursing school and fell off the SP wagon. I was doing so good. Counting calories and exercising regularly to the point that my friends were making fun of me for counting out crackers in a serving size, lol. I lost 8 lbs in the first month. Now, I'm back up to the weight that I started at, minus a few pounds (148lbs). My clothes are all too tight and it's bathing suit season...I'd rather be wearing a towel wrapped around me, at this point. So...I'm back.
I've finished school and landed a job as a Registered Nurse on an Orthopaedic unit at a great hospital. Working days until mid-August then back on the midnight shift, which ironically means more available gym time for me. I'm also getting back to running, starting today. I've had some nagging knee pain and an ankle sprain from the half-marathon I did last Fall. Being inactive (as far as running) has not really helped. So...it may be alittle slow going at first.
This is Day 1 of a new lifestyle for me. Toxic habits, thoughts and relationships are going bye-bye and I'm focusing on what I need to do to be healthy!!! Cheers.
