Crazy how time flies. This year has been a whirlwind. The beginning of the year was scary, June was the best time of my life and now it's almost time for a new year to begin! I just can't believe it!
Life at my new school has been going well. It is almost time to say goodbye to the students I have now and hello to a new group. That is the blessing of the block schedule! I really miss Woodcreek and the awesome people there, but I am finding a comfortable niche at Roseville day by day. Honestly, I am really just happy to have a job! These days it is definitely a blessing.
On the exercise and weight loss front I am in a rut. I spent most of the year working really hard and seeing the pounds drop off, but after my wedding and my first ever sprint triathlon I sorta hit a wall. I was still training for the Urban Cow Half marathon, but not to the level I should have been. My food intake has been bad for a while now. I stopped counting points and calories and writing down my food and it all fell apart. I am not saying I have been pigging out on twinkies and eaten nothing but junk, but my portions have been outta control. Thanksgiving did not help at all. I weighed in this morning and I am at 175lbs. That is the same as I was last year at this time, which means all of my hard work to get into the 160's has been undone. I have created a gym schedule that I have been following, but that has been just this week, so no results yet. I hope that at this time next year I can say I have met my goal of 160 pounds. I know I can do it, I just need to do it!
That is my update. A little disappointed, but I know what I need to do and I know that I can do it.
