2 Years!!

I can't believe it's been 2 years since I had my surgery. It feels like just yesterday I was getting ready to head into DC with my Mom for the biggest milestone of my life.

I also can't believe it's been almost a year since I have made a blog post. Shame on me. I guess this past year has been a crazy one for me!

I moved, started a new job, moved again, started another new job, and now I'm getting ready to change jobs again. Considering all of life's changes and stresses, I'm impressed that I have been able to maintain the same weight over the past year.

I haven't lost anything in about a year, but I also haven't really gained any thing either, which is great in my book. I haven't been able to work out with this current job taking up the majority of my life. I did sign up for a new gym in town, and was going to classes almost every day, which I really love, and I hope to be able to start going back once I get a better schedule with this new job. I found myself being much stronger and leaner than in the past, I was worried that going to the classes instead of working out at the gym was being less effective, but when I went to PF for the first time in month, I found myself flying through the 30 minute workout, and having to push myself harder than before.

I also, decided to sign myself up for the Color Vibe 5K in a few weeks. I am very excited to do this with my friends and sister, however not very excited to run, as I haven't trained AT ALL. That's a lie..I went on a walk/run last week with the dog, though it was more of a stop and smell the roses for the pooch.

I continue to work on myself, I find that the hardest part of this journey, to continue to be selfish and put my wants and needs first, since I've always put myself on the back burner with everything. Even recently I felt SO guilty quitting a job that I truly enjoyed, but really just is too far away. I still feel guilty, leaving the company high and dry, but at the end of the day, I need to put myself, my health and well being first, and if I'm not happy at the core, then how can the rest of my life be happy?

So here's to another year down, another year of living a healthy, happy lifestyle and to more blog posts!

  1. Sarah,
    I am so proud of you!! When you look at all the pictures it is unbelievable the changes you have made. Keep putting yourself first... you can't help anyone if you aren't in a good place yourself... Love you,

  2. You are doing great! it's hard to put yourself first. I started doing that last year. I get up at 4:45am to hit a class at 5:30 am at my gym and am loving it.

    You also might want to by some DVDs...I LOVE Body combat...as your mom...she'll tell you I post about it all the time. The DVDs are as good as taking a class!

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Thanks Mom <3

    Thanks Lynne! I love body combat too! It's one of the classes I take at the gym, but I didn't know they had it on DVD too, I will have to check it out!
