Hello! Well, since i have been pretty MIA lately on the message boards- I thought I would update everyone on what has been going on im my life.
At the end of May I was laid off from my job. I took it as a sign to just relax and enjoy my summer! Between school, work & life I had been on the verge of burning out, and although I would much rather be working than not, I have taken this opportunity to further my schooling and spending time researching graduate schools. Because I went from being super busy, to having an extremely light schedule, I started spending more time seeing friends and family in Ft. Lauderdale. I do not get to spend much time with so while down there I disregarded all diet and exercise. When I would come home to Cocoa, I would continue to eat poorly and exercise very rarely.
Well everyone, my vacay from that destructive lifestyle is over. I am back full on with my diet & going to the gym 6 days a week. I do not regret my decision to take some time off and live life as a couch potato. It was a choice I made, and it was something I felt I needed at the time. The weight I gained is coming off quite quickly, and my strength is getting back to where it was in May! As far as changes to my lifestyle, I am trying to take it a day at a time. No more of this "I can't eat this...I can't do that..." If I want some freakin' cake, I'm going to eat it (hopefully not everyday! ha). No more depriving myself & then binging when times get tough!
Other than school, work, and the recent changes to my lifestyle, all is well over here! Scott & I are planning events for my 22nd bday & our 4th anniversary. I am taking a trip to Maryland/D.C soon and yes, I've also started looking for a new job! I miss all my buddies in Brevard- and hope it isn't too much longer until I get to see you all. :)
