"Where have you been?"

Can I first start out by saying how flattered I am that people have actually taken the time to ask me where I have been? I honestly didn’t know I had followers who read my page like that! That’s definitely a self esteem booster, and I strongly appreciate it.

So here’s an update on where I’ve been the last couple months. I don’t think I’ve been active since…May? June maybe? But I’m definitely going to try and get into the swing of things. I’m much more accountable when I’m posting.

I’m going to start with the elephant in the room…literally. I have gone from a happy weight of 148 to a slightly larger weight of 180. Sigh. Ever since I got back from Seattle nearly a year ago, it’s been hard to keep my weight and eating in check. But these last 2 weeks I’ve been doing mostly good (minus the frozen yogurt I’m addicted to and must wean myself off of!) and running, as I have a half marathon in 2 months. I’ll get back to a happier weight though, and hopefully get it all off!

I got a Samsung Galaxy S5 which came preloaded with a calorie counter and pedometer. I’ve been trying hard to get my 10,000 steps a day!

I got a new job last month. My commute has gone from 3 hours a day to a half hour a day. My salary has gone up as well, but due to my sister’s bridal shower and paying off debt, I haven’t seen too much of that. It’s a step in the direction of what I see myself doing long term. It’s still working with people with disabilities though, and it’s a pleasure to walk into work every day and know I’m making a difference.

Things are going great with my wife. I love her more than anything and I feel like we grow so much more in love every day. I’m excited to (eventually!) start our family, when we’re more financially and physically stable. I got an awesome new ring that I hate to take off!

I have an annual pass to Disneyland, so we go there quite a bit! Pros: Lots of walking. Cons: Lots of delicious, unhealthy foods. I gotta get used to taking my own snacks.

My sister’s wedding is in 2 months and I’m the maid of honor. Stress City, Population me and her.

I’m going to work hard on buckling down on money and saving up. We want to buy our own house someday, so I really need to figure out how to budget better and pay off all our debt.

I think that’s it for now. I’m working late tonight, but hopefully I’ll be able to get in my 3 mile training run tonight!

I actually got up and ran this morning!

This is HUGE for me, as I love to stay in bed and press snooze.

Let’s hope I can do more days like this!

2.0 miles, 22 minutes. Baby steps.

Completely transforming your body can take a really fucking long time and it’s hard so just be patient.
