Hey guys. Thanks to those of you who have stuck around. My first semester of graduate school is complete, and I must say that while I adjusted to it faster than I figured I would, it still consumed a great deal of my time. However, I'm on a break until mid-January, so hopefully I can get back in the swing of things and then keep up with it come Spring semester.
Just as an update, I'll share where I am in my fitness journey. I weighed in this morning at 216, which puts me at 59 pounds lost. I am SO excited about hitting 60, but after passing my first goal of 50 the next is to be 75 pounds down, so I have 15 to go before I reach my second goal and then I am on the edge of ONEDERLAND! Yes, ladies and gents, I will be - for the first time in over 12 years - under 200 pounds.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I can hardly imagine how excited I will be. I know fitness is more than a number, but for me, personally, being in the 100s is something I have longed for, dreamed about, but never really believed I could do. Of course, once I hit that goal I still have 55 pounds left until I reach my weight goal. I'm not worried, though, because I look back at how far I've come, what I've accomplished in the past five months, and how much stronger I am. I look forward to the challenge, because I know I've got this.
Oh yeah, I finally got around to joining Instagram. Find me and I'll follow you back. We can share fitness motivation, encouragement, recipes and successes! bea_beautiful_12
Happy Hump Day!
