Life Update

  • I’ve pulled myself out of the sadness of my best friend moving away
  • I’ve accepted another job at work. This next year will be a lot of learning and hard work, but I’m excited!
  • Two weeks ago I weighed 205 on the scales. I realized how unhappy I feel and kicked myself into gear. Last Wednesday I weighed in at 201.8. I’m going to begin my Weigh in Wednesdays again to keep me on track.
  • I’ve been doing a lot of clean eating, counting calories, and exercising 5-6 times a week over the past 2 weeks. I’m nervous for what the scale will say tomorrow, but my clothes are feeling a little looser and that makes all the work worth it.
  • I ran 4 miles this morning and it really put me in a great mindset for the rest of the day!
  • I’m seeing my ex tomorrow night. It will go one of two ways. We either start dating again or it will be the last time I ever see him. I haven’t seen him in 8 months and he is going through a rough time. I feel bad for him, but not bad enough to put myself in a bad position. Mama didn’t raise no fool.
  • My online dates have been a disas-tah as of late. But that’s the beauty of online dating. On to the next!

I found out yesterday that my work/life bff put in her two weeks. She was not happy and I’m not surprised she did it, but what I am surprised by is that she is moving over 2 hours away.

I’m happy for her, but am oh so sad. We eat lunch together everyday and have so many after work adventures all the time. Each time I talked to her today about it, she would cry. I did not cry in front of her (yet) because I want to put on a happy face for her.

But now that I am home it is time to commence the tears! I know 2ish hours is really not that far in essence, but we literally had plans everyday. Mondays were manicures, Tuesday trivia at the bar, Wednesday movie night, etc. And those will be no more.  This feels like a breakup.

For reference, my other best friend moved to Ohio two years ago. Cue “All By Myself”.

Week 5 Run 1

So in my last post I went on about how pleased I was that I didn’t miss a running day in my training plan yet. Well I missed all of last week. Completely derailed. Off the wagon.

I decided that instead of doing week 4 this week I would continue with the plan and begin week 5 as I was suppose to. I completed 4 miles this morning, will have another 4 on Wednesday, & then six on Friday. Despite skipping last week, my run was pretty okay this morning!

I bought new running shoes this past weekend. They’re Brooks brand which I’ve never tried before, but I’m pretty sure I’m in love. I also found Sweaty Bands in real life! It was the greatest!

In other news work is crazy. I’m pulling 12 hour days lately and it’s absolutely draining. I think I have a match date on Friday night, but I may be dead with the 6 mile run and work combo.

I remember in an interview years ago P Diddy said he did not need sleep and would work 24/7. I fell asleep during dinner tonight. I’m counting down to my day off on Sunday.
