Let's catch up

Well, I was on a roll there for about a week! I was able to post like 3 times! Crazy, I know.

Anyway, since then I've had a lot going on. 

1. I turned 30. Woo hoo! I had an awesome Mexican Fiesta Birthday party at my mom's house. Not the healthiest night, but I had fun and I'm glad I let loose on my birthday. Ok, I had some bomb-ass Mexican food (made by my mom) and 5 beers. I fell asleep on the couch at 11 PM and my friends were still hanging out in the back yard. What can I say, I'm not much of a drinker these days!

2. I had a bod pod. Not proud to admit it, but I gained about 2 pounds in the last 3 months. I have to rethink some things and figure out how to live my life the way I want to live and still not gain all this weight back. It's a very difficult thing. I want to feel like I'm getting to do and eat what I want, without going overboard, but still continue to lose a few more pounds and whatnot. I know there is a way to do it. I know there is a way to be happy and healthy. I just have to find it again. I used to be able to follow meal plans to a T and be happy and healthy. Now, I'm feeling unhappy when I'm following a meal plan. I feel like I have no freedom to live and make my own choices. I feel like I'm letting Zach and Janelle down if I don't follow a meal plan. I'm in an awkward spot in my weight loss. I need figure out what direction I want to go. 

3. I'm still running. I'm in week 8 of the plan I've been following. It's crazy to think that I've been following for this plan for 8 weeks. I'm jogging for about 30 minutes at a time. CRAZY! The entire time I'm on the treadmill I'm in total disbelief that I am even running. Some days I think it's just too good to be true! I mean, me.....running? I guess so! I'm able to go a little further each day and each week. I can go over 2.5 miles in my 29 minutes this week! I think that's pretty damn good!

4. I swear, I'm reading your blogs too! I just read them on the fly between my classes that I teach and on my breaks from other random jobs. It just gets hard to comment! So, keep reading and I'll keep reading yours!


  1. Happy Birthday! My party days flickered out long before 30. (I blame many years of bar tending though.)

    Secondly-I have no doubt you'll find your balance. I think sitting down with Zach and being honest would probably go a long way. The last few are the hardest, but you can do it.

  2. Happy birthday! That's pretty funny, falling asleep while your friends are hanging out...kI would so do that! Hang in there, I believe you will find your balance. And Awesome on doing this program for 8 weeks!
