It's been a long life changing journey this last year(almost). Things happen for so many reasons, and yes things happen for a reason. My husband and I almost totally lost our marriage together this last year due to many factors, but the main reason was communication. You see after being together for 8+ years you may think you can read each others minds and communicate telepathically, but that is just not the case. That is one thing that we both have learned and are working hard on it day by day. Life is ever changing... For those of you that are married or in any type of relationship... Keep talking to each other, don't assume that your partner knows everything that goes on, talk about things that happened that may or may not be important to you, but it will keep that communication open with your partner.
I also started working outside my home in all this time as a Certified Nursing Assistant(CNA) in a nursing home. Being a CNA before, it was nothing new to me, just getting back into the swing of things. Trust me it's not my dream job, but it helps pay the bills.
And let me tell ya my weight has been all over the place in this year. When my husband and I were at our worst point I lost 12 pounds in one month!!! That was not good!! But as things got better with us I gained it back and + some. If you have ever worked in health care, you know all the goodies that come along for the holidays.
In March I decided to get back to basics: Workout Journal(Mind you I had not worked out in months!!), WATER, WATER, WATER, and making healthier food choices. Starting weigh on 3/5/12 was 149.8. As you all know it takes time, but as of this week I am now down to 143! One of the biggest factors is I started doing Insanity and also Shakeology! I just seem to be more focused if I am on a schedule. I am also a Beach Body Coach again, because I realized that this is where my passion is at. I love the fitness industry and I did go through a little depression period when I was not working out. I was just not happy with myself and where I was. So I am almost like a newbie once again, but I love it!!
So, that's what I've been up to lately. I am still working full time at the moment, but I am hoping to post at least once a week! I hope you continue to follow me on my journey through life and also fitting back into my old jeans!!!!
