Been almost a year since I've posted a blog. Quick life recap:
-Working out 5-6 times a week. Upper/Lower split for weights, with rowing or running for cardio. With fall here, I'll be running even more and hopefully can get back up to half-marathon distance with ease (last 'long' run was 10 miles and I cramped at the end, but it was 80 degrees and about 7pm...)
-80-90% vegetarian since March 2013. That's been interesting, and it's not full-time though I do consciously try. A co-worker challenged me to go vegetarian for Lent and I successfully did so, and I noticed I trimmed down probably a good 5 pounds during that 40 day period (plus I worked out more), so I decided to keep going.
-Working full-time at a management consulting/defense contracting firm. Really enjoying the work and the challenges and the people I work with. Ups and downs, as usual, but very pleased to be working where I am.
-Had some emotional issues recently, and coming up on the elusive 3.5 years without a serious girlfriend, which is quite a feat in today's world. Work is keeping me busy, and I'm discovering I'm a bit more extroverted than I was during graduate school - I'm enjoying going out and grabbing a beer here and there, or meeting new people at my firm.
Hope all is well with anyone who still reads this. Take care!
