Sup Strangers!

Hi everyone! First of all, I just want to say HI and I miss you all! I haven't blogged in so long. Life has been really busy. There have been a few of you (very few) that emailed me to see what's up, and I appreciate that SOOO much.

A little update -

I am working a full time job with an hour-long commute, so my free time has been cut way down. The job is something that will look good on my resume, but that is sucking the life and spirit out of me. I hate it and am looking for something closer to home. However, I live in a small town, so there are not many marketing jobs around here. Maybe I can get into a different line of work, but who knows what that would be. Any ideas?

In brighter news, I am dating someone pretty great and am now living with him. We've been together a little over 4 months, so we've moved a little fast, but it's going good. Most of my free time is spent with him.

As far as weight loss goes, I made a New Years resolution to lose weight and then just forgot about it. I just need to get my mind in the game like it was before. Right now, I am wrapped up in this job and trying to find another one, having fun when I'm not at work and just not making it a priority. I haven't gained any weight tho. I am sitting around 170 and have been for months.

But. Let's get to confession time. I don't work out. I don't eat that often (like overeating), but I do eat foods that are pretty bad nutritiously. I go out to eat a lot on my lunch break because I have friends at work and that's like the highlight of the workday, and most of the time it is very bad (yet really good, ha) foods. Mexican is my fave.

I have become aware in the last couple weeks that I am looking to food and alcohol for comfort lately. I find myself thinking about food more (like how it used to be when I was fat), and wanting bad foods just to make myself feel better. And I drink almost every night. Actually now that I'm talking about it, it's a wonder I haven't gained weight. I guess it's the busy thing that saves me.

I need to get with the program tho. I need to get back on track with my goal. I am comfortable at the weight I am, but I want to be more than just comfortable. I want to feel like I look great. Plus it would be good to focus on something healthy and productive and to be working towards something again.

Ahh life. Ok so there is my long-winded update! I will try to post more, and can't wait to read and catch up with all of you! I look forward to connecting with all of you again!
