thinking back on the last year. i joined a gym and am still going. i lost 25 pounds, my uterus, my job. them i found a new job.
the first 6 months of the year were all about learning to exercise and eat right. losing those 25 pounds.
the next 6 months were all about dealing with health problems (stupid tumor), having major surgery, and focusing on healing and not gaining weight. maintaining.
i'm still sometimes sore from the surgery. i can't wear jeans without being in pain. it's only been 3 months and this is normal. i also get tired and can't work out as much. so again, maintaining.
it's been 3 weeks at the new job. i really love it. but it's going to get hard. now i'm testing things, having to ask a ton of questions, trying to understand a complicated SDLC process. also trying to invent some new & (hopefully) awesome way to make QA work at this company. i can do it. it's a little scary and some pressure, but i like that.
here's a link to the pics from this week's "office olympics". what a blast!
so now, i feel like i'm at a crossroads. i've been half-assing it at the gym and with my eating. after surgery i needed to do that. and i did maintain my weight. but now it's just lame and i need to get back to losing more weight and getting healthier.
my goal was to lose 50 pounds this year. i won't hit that goal (due to surgery). so my new goal is to just get under 220. i've been at that weight for months now. i can do this.
another goal is to see my friends and be more social. i'm such a homebody. i LOVE being home with dan and the dogs. but i miss my old work friends, and my old high school friends. i'd also like to get out for walks in the woods with dan & the dogs. we could also use the fresh air and exercise.
ok, i need to stop rambling and get ready for work.
