Hello out there! If there's still anyone there, actually!
It's been awhile!
Where have I been, you ask?
Right here... haven't gone anywhere! It's been pretty busy for us the past few months I've been "away". Long story as short as possible... I was pretty ashamed of where I was heading food/weight/work out wise. I have let some things take over me and control me... since I can't seem to control them. That has caused some pretty out of character eating patterns for me and leading just plain not caring whether I work out or not. Absolutely NOT like me at all. I won't get into all the details... I may touch on a few things later if I keep blogging.
Needless to say, I have gained quite a bit of weight. I went from being 129 pounds a year ago to 153 pounds as of yesterday. Not that 153 pounds is horrible - it's how I'm treating my body that's sad. I'm definitely paying for it! I haven't been this out of shape in years! And I'm pumping my body full of sugar and unhealthy carbs. It's almost putting me in a bad depression... I don't want to see anyone. I don't want them to see me! Here I was, the "weight loss girl"... and was proud of my body! I worked hard for it! And just like that, I let it go.
I'd like to say that this post is all about a "change". Really, I think it's more about getting all of this off of my chest.
And my time off from blogging hasn't all been horrible... I have had some great times with friends and family! And of course, Maddie always keeps me smiling! She just turned 4 on January 17th... I can't believe my little baby is growing up! We had a big My Little Pony party :) It's like living my childhood all over again! I was obsessed with My Little Ponies when I was 3 & 4! Crazy how that all comes back around. Some recent pics of the kiddo....
I hate that I did not keep up with blogging. I really do enjoy it! I am going to try to pick it back up again...I do have some limitations with some food right now (that would be a whole other way too TMI post!) but we'll see what the future brings!
We are COVERED in snow and ice today here in Nashville... how's it looking where you are?
