WOW, I cannot believe it has been a whole year since I started this blog. It’s even more amazing I have kept it up for an entire year 🙂 WELL, I have been one busy bee since I started this blog. I have participated in several races, did a mud mania challenge, officially joined Black Girls Run, AND manage to graduate from grad school all while losing weight. I am in the best shape I have ever been since high school. Have I fallen off the wagon? Of course I have. Getting in shape and staying in shape in just like a full time job. Sodas is still my worst enemy and I have not mastered kicking that habit for good yet. Fast food is still my second worst enemy and I’m working on kicking that habit as well. I have managed to stay beef and pork free for over a year and counting. I’m not going to give a ton of excuses why I’ve been on and off the wagon. But sometimes life gets in the way and you take the quick easy options when it comes to eating. WELL, I am in the process of starting a new job and moving to a new city. I am more excited about getting back on my fitness grind once I am settled into my OWN place. I have been keeping Back to Me updated with current pictures. So you can click right on the words “Back to Me” and you can see how I returned back to my former younger body 🙂 I still have to tighten, tone, and lose the 10lbs I gained during my student-teaching. BUT I’ll take a 10lb weight gain over gaining it all back any day. Sooooooo, I know you all are wondering how much weight have I lost? WELL, you will have to read my update in the “About My Journey” section to see where I am now 🙂 I truly appreciate all the love, support, and positive encouragement. This has been a long and hard journey BUT staying healthy and in shape is a part of my lifestyle. Yes, sometimes life gets in your way and you fall off from you daily routine. BUT, don’t stay off the wagon just get back on and keep working hard. I found my fitness notebook loaded with great info while I was packing for my big move. At one point I wanted to right a fitness manual so loaded up with research info. Therefore, I will be bloging more about food, exercise, and other healthy tips. I’m so excited about what’s in store and I hope I continue to inspire others as well. This year is not over yet so let’s get back on the grind and continue to make the world sexy by being fit and healthy. Thanks again for all you love and support and please feel free to share my blog with others.
