It's been ***EIGHTEEN*** months since my last post. Holy crap, indeed.
As you can imagine, it's been the same virtual roller coaster of the same 20 pounds. And naturally, it's a new year and I am coming off of a multi-week bender of food and alcohol and whateverthefuckIwant. Funny how the things I want in the moment only lead me to feeling the absolute worst as a result.
Prior to the last month or so, I was maintaining a pretty healthy lifestyle, though was still not achieving the body I really want. On chase trips Skip and I will hike and eat veggies and hummus and mostly maintain a really healthy outlook. It helps that he's vegan.
I have been reading back through this blog, an amazing chronicle and account of what I've gone through in weight loss and fitness and such over the last several years, and I was even finding myself ... inspired by myself.
My husband and I have chatted about this Ex Hot Girl blog thing several times over the last 18 months while I've been absent here. (Meanwhile chasing and working like crazy,) and he encouraged me to come back but I never did.
Well, I'm back.
I'm back to blog more, to share with you my fitness and health goals, food issues and all of the things that I used to share with you.
Hopefully you'll run along with me and we'll renew our focus on ourselves together.
For me, it's back to low fat vegan / raw juicing and smoothies. I had a great deal of success on this (You don't have to scroll too far back to find this, but it was at the end of 2011,) and I'm ready to reset things to where they should be. Fall back in love with fruits and veggies again!
A quick update then, on what I've been up to and where I am. Like I mentioned, up and down between 160 and 180. Currently:
Weight: 180.3 (fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck)
I actually started running in the late summer and found myself running 5k distances regularly. I wasn't losing weight during that time, but felt really good. I really was blown away that I had the need, the pull, the actual (wtf?) desire to run. It baffled me.
SO! Here is a photo of my husband and I on New Years Eve this year, and a current shot of me before going out. HElloooooo, MAC makeup.
SO. Here we go. Day one. :)
