Starting Over


I used to be quite the blogger, I would spend time every day telling the blog community things about myself and actually making a really cool friend in the process. Lately I felt like I couldn't write the truth. Not for fear of being judged, but I needed to keep some things private. My ex used to read my fomer blog and I felt that I couldn't write about what was happening and what was really going on as I didn't want him to read it online. Blogging is something that I want to do for myself and feeling that I had to censor what I was going to write made me develop severe writers block. Not cool. Well I am feeling inspired again and so without further ado I am back.
Last year I heard about NaBloPoMo mid November and I was pissed cause I thought it would be a fun creative challenge to have to post every day. I year I shall do it! I shall be a super poster every day of November. Well today is the 8th so it looks like one more year I will miss out on getting the cool little icon in my blog. No matter, it is good to be back.
Have had a really nice day. I took my Nan out for a coffee and grocery shopping, and then just came home and got some "homey" things done. Made some phone calls, wrote some letters, paid some bills. The things I mean to do that sort of get swept away each day only to pile up and make me nuts at the end of the week. I have recently become a gym rat. I pretty much do hate working out so this is quite a surprise to me. My friend Jen recently moved back to town and we decided that we should work out together. I really said yes as a lark but now we are going 4-5 times a week. I have wanted to work on my fitness (from couch potato to semi active at least)for quite a while and now it is so amazing to actually feel myself sweating and getting stronger. My routine at the moment is 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and then doing some core strenghtening exercises on the weight machines...I am feeling an improvement. I still want to crawl in to my jammies and bed as soon as I get home, but I think I am a bit thinner and stronger...lets hope it ups my metabolism asap! Suddenly though it is 5:17 and I have a gym date for 6pm! I am quite proud of myself though cause I managed to prep for dinner this afternoon so that when I get back I just have to throw the veggies on the stove and make some pasta. There are many ways I am changing my life at the moment, this seems to be one of the easiest!

I'm so glad you are back to blogging, thanks for letting me know. It sounds like you are making great positive changes in your life. Great job on working out! That's something I still need to improve on myself.

Aww, I'm glad I met a cool friend through it, too! I'm very impressed with all of the working out you are doing, but I most definitely recommend adding more wine consumption into your daily routine, too. :) BIG HUGS from Philly, and it's great to have you back!
