Shortly after I married my bestest friend in May, I started taking classes to prepare for nursing school while working and taking care of my family. That was hard work, but I’m pleased to say that I maintained a 4.0, kept my job, and didn’t kill any of the boys in my house due to lack of nutrition or cleanliness. Whew! I now have a month off (whatamIgonnado?!?!), so I suppose I can actually fold the laundry now. Hooray. Or something.
When PattyCakes asked me to marry him, I knew I wanted to lose weight to look great in my dress, and I was successful, as I’ve posted before. But since then, the journey has become so much more. I’m no longer “dieting,” but have changed my view of food. I eat what I want in moderation, and actually crave healthy things after I “cheat.” I don’t view working out as a chore, but something I absolutely love doing. I lift at 5 AM 4-5 times a week, I don’t weigh myself as obsessively as I used to, but I do know that I’ve lost 3 inches from my waist, 3 inches from my chest (I CAN BUY BRAS FROM TARGET! WOOT!), and 4.5 inches from my hips.
(Don’t mind the bathroom, I’m traveling and messy)
All-in-all, this year has been more than kind to me, and now I have time to write about it. All of this extra time means more recipes and meal prepping, more workouts and logs, and waaayyyy more pictures of my little bug. Speaking of, here’s one of us and my “baby” brother…who just got accepted into grad school and isn’t really a baby anymore.
Later, blog readers, I shall return with more of these good reads!
Until next time,
