Maybe I'll Try Again

Way too much has happened since I last blogged (FEBRUARY!!) to catch up in one post (or any post), so let's just pretend you know everything that has happened in my life over the last seven months (I'm an open book, you probably do).

After seeing my friend Erica in New Orleans, I was inspired to start blogging again.  Basically if anyone ever tells me that they enjoy my writing, it's probably going to be enough of an ego boost to make me start doing it again.

Tomorrow is day 1 of retraining for a 5k.  Sakief found a race in early December, so I should be able to finish a C25k program before then.  He starts training for a marathon soon, so he promises to help me get out the door to run.  I'd hate to have a repeat of my last 5k (ow).

No recipes to post at the moment, though I apparently have three draft posts from February (sigh) that are all recipes.  I feel like I need to make the food again before I can go back and finish the posts.  At least I know what's for dinner... 

Hopefully this means I'll start cooking more often too.  Sakief loves to cook, but I don't feel like I've been pulling my weight in the kitchen recently.  

Wedding diet is in full effect with 20 lbs down.  I haven't been on the scale since before La's wedding, too much traveling, but I feel good, and know when I get back on the scale it will be a number I approve of.  I only have to skrink myself at least two dress sizes... damnit bridal moment.  I just had to fall in love with a discontinued dress.  That aside, the weight loss is for me, not the wedding, and for continued health.  Sakief is the greatest support system, as per usual, and with him by my side (duh) I can do anything.

P.S. If you don't have a FitBit, you probably should.  Just saying.  I've never walked more in my life.

  1. Glad to see you blogging again! Seeing other people be responsible helps keep me on track too... or at least guilts me into putting forth more of an effort. Do you use MyFitnessPal? I found it really useful when I was trying to drop some grad school weight last year. I wish I had the willpower to commit to a low carb lifestyle (everyone I know swears by it) but the closest I'll come to a compromise is replacing my white rice with brown rice.
