Hi friends! So I ended up joining the gym I was interested in - something I never thought I would do. I'm finally getting back into a routine, and I've been dragging my butt to the gym three nights a week after work. I'm proud of myself - my job moved me from the local store 4 miles away from my house (where the gym was on my way home) to the store located 30 miles away (where the gym is NOT on my way home), so I'm happy that I'm making myself go (and for the most part, I am enjoying it). For the first time last week, I met my goals and then some for fitness minutes (exceeded by 100 minutes or so), calories burned (exceeded it by 500 calories) and miles (exceeded by 7 miles). Woo!
I got new tats! In my last blog, I mentioned how I wanted to get a tattoo of Baby's paw print, and I got it on my birthday a few weeks ago! I also got lyrics to one of my favorite songs, "Swim" by Jack's Mannequin, in the same day. A few months ago, I saw the lead singer of JM live, and it was one of the greatest concert experiences of my life. (One thing you must know about me - I love concerts. A lot a lot a lot.) After the show, I met him and asked him to write out my favorite line of "Swim" so that I could get it tattooed in his handwriting. It's absolutely perfect, and it means so much to me. The fact that I got it the same day as I got my tattoo for Baby makes it extra special - the song is about getting through the rough times, and losing Baby was the hardest thing I've had to endure in YEARS, so it was all appropriate. Here's a picture of them.
