Happy New Year: Extended Edition

Today’s song is brought to you by the Pandora Pop Fitness station.

This time last year was a time of hardship and growth.  No really–I gained 12 pounds.  But it was also character growth, and so so good.

From there, we went through wedding planning, a wedding, getting a dignosis of ‘hyperthyroidism’ for Tazzerson (our cat), an international reception, helping my brother move, moving ourselves, helping my mom move, planning festivities for my sister’s wedding, and finally–attending her wedding.  In between, I’ve been going to school and my husband has been studying for his certifications, our parents have had to take care of our grandparents as they age and needs change.   We’ve had a ton of just LIFE things happening and when that happens, some things fall by the wayside.  Thankfully, I’ve been able to maintain my weight for the last year–230 on the dot.  But what is the point of maintaining when I’d much rather be working towards my ultimate goal weight?

The “life” things have settled down for the moment.  Now it’s time to get back to the rhythm of working out, planning meals, and eating right.

Today’s plan is to get in a quick work out, clean the house, and do some cooking for the week ahead.  When I buy breakfast at work, it’s a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich (english muffin).  There’s no reason why I can’t make something similar at home and make some healthy substitutions.  When I buy lunch at work, it’s usually when they’ve got gyros in from a local restaurant 🙂 I can do that, too.

Now that life has settled down a bit, I expect to be posting much more often.  Thanks for sticking with me!
