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. :)

    Glad you're back on track. I understand completely about just "taking some time off". Been doing that most of my

    Sorry about your job. That really bites, but you're incredibly bright and energetic, not to mention skilled, and I'm sure the right job will come along when the time is right.

    Hope to see you this weekend, but if not, we're still thinking about ya!
