Happy New Year

Monday, January 13, 2014

So, it's been a while...

I guess I haven't really updated my blog much since moving to Cary! It's been pretty busy between work and school.

In the last year or so, I've finished 3 semesters of prerequisites for a Master's Degree in Public Health and have sent of my application (fingers crossed!) as well as worked my butt off at Total Wine. It was causing a lot of stress, unfortunately, so I stopped working there in November and have been focusing on my studies since. I'm just glad I have the ability to do that!

I'm going a little stir-crazy not having a job and a "60-hour" week anymore, but we've had more fun in the last three months than in the previous 3 years! I'll try to post some pictures if I can dig them up. We've been able to go backpacking more often, have friends over, have parties... and have more nights and weekends together.

I've taken up running again, as well as trying to do some more heavy weightlifting now that I'm not schlepping 40-lb cases of wine everyday... it's not easy, but it's fun! Fitocracy released a set of workouts entitled "12 Days of Fitmas", and they are no joke... maybe it's just because I'm out of practice, but I could barely move my legs after the first two.

As far as running is concerned, I've downloaded an app called "Zombies, Run! 2" -- it's a collaborative effort with the NHS and is worth checking out! It costs $3.99 and is compatible with iOS and (finally!!) Android devices. The missions are pretty gripping and you get to upload your own music.

Enough sitting on my backside; on to running!
