Hello Sparkly Peeps,
You may or may not have noticed, but I've been pretty much MIA since June. After running my first 5K and graduating college the very next week, life went full throttle for awhile there.
I got the job I wanted less than a month after graduation. There was only one little catch. It was in the city over four hours from home. So, I moved into a friend's basement and spent two hours driving to work and two hours driving back every day. It was a killer!
Handsome graduated in August. He and the cats moved into the basement with me. Thankfully, he got a job in the city less than a month after graduation too! Double Yay! After Handsome was employed, we were able to find our very own place in the city which we moved into the Friday before last.
Needless to say, those three months were hard. Our friend was kind enough to feed us, but it proved too stressful to track and measure food that I didn't prepare. The stress of the drive was wearing, so eventually I gave into the fast food demon. I tried to make good decisions, but some days the need to wallow in the comfort of greasy fries won out.
However, we are settled now and started slipping back into our old healthy habits. Fresh groceries were purchased last night, every lick-nibble-bite has been tracked today, and new goals have been set. I couldn't be happier to be back on that wagon, because now I know what a glorious ride I had.
