Why hello there. I’m feeling some serious Mr. Rogers vibes right now. Probably because I’m tired. In case you forgot who I am and what I look like, I’ve taken a wonderful picture of me doing a typical 80’s glamour shot pose in my Moody Beach sweatshirt. #yourewelcome
It’s been a really, really long time since I’ve written anything on here. It’s actually May now (unfortunately we have to wait another 11 months to use that wonderful JT meme). I’ve been trying to be somewhat active on Instagram to make up for it, but even my sister recently told me she noticed I hadn’t been blogging. I hope no one was worried – I’m doing well. Just busy still adjusting at work and taking time to be instead of write. I’ll be better, I promise!
Let’s see. Since I last checked in…
Things have kept moving on the health/wellness/exercise front. I’ve seen 218lbs and hit the 50lb mark now like three times. Going away for my 5th year college reunion and having my cousin down to visit on adjacent weekends did NOT help the cause. But this burrito place in Harvard Square (Felipes) is a tempting thing. And I’m not just talking about the burritos. Now that the sun has come out for real and it’s not 40 degrees, I’m seriously struggling with my desire to drink fun summer drinks on patios and roof decks. Did someone say margaritas? But I must persist! Summer is coming and I’m feeling like it’s going to be a good one.
I just cleaned out my closet and dresser and have two bags of clothes marked for donation. While some of the clothes were just items I haven’t worn since before I moved (or longer), a lot of the things that I’m donating are too big.. or they fit but look frumpy because they sag in all the wrong places. I’m putting that into the successes pile. And I know, I know! Don’t get rid of stuff yet… You’re thinking that I might need a loose pair of jeans in a few months. After a summer of rum cocktails and hot dogs. But I’m not so convinced. I don’t know if you read… but I’m hovering around the 50lb mark. And most of these clothes are pieces that I wore before I started losing weight. I’m also determined to continue on to my goal weight/feeling, and keep it off! If I doubt myself, I have no chance of success.
What else? I have definitely had a number of wonderful drinks. I’ll get on IG tomorrow and post a bunch of pics. If you haven’t been to The Rising Bar in Inman Square, YOU MUST! And get the Coconut Margarita. It’s amazinggggg.
Oh and for those of you worrying about my love life… Coach and I are still together. I mean, we’re dating… since that’s how we defined it. I’m still allowed to see other people (though I haven’t dated or made out with anyone but Coach since St. Patrick’s Day). He actually went with me to a wedding of one of my work colleagues. It was fun. Awkward. But… fun. Fun might not be the right word now that I’m thinking about it. When I had asked him earlier that week if he was still down to go, he said something stupid like “I don’t think I ever agreed to that”. Of course, once I told him I could find someone else to accompany me, he got his act together and looked so handsome. My boss and coworkers are now prying into my situationship more than I’d like.
Also on the Coach front… we are definitely moving in the direction of relationship. We went to the movies to see Black Panther a few weeks ago and let me just say: we were being so cute. It was gross. If I was out and saw a couple playing and kissing on the escalator or literally any other unnecessary PDA, I would have seriously judged them and been like “ew. stop.” Last week when I saw him a few days after I got back from my 5 year, he was driving me to work in the morning and he said, “Man, I’m glad you’re back”. He’s so freaking cute, I can’t.
Anyways, I promise to write more. See y’all soon.
