So…I uh, took a bit of break there. Did you notice I was absent from the blogosphere?

The last couple of months were really busy and blogging just sort of fell off my radar. Honestly, I just haven’t felt like I had much to say about weight loss (or my lack thereof). I’ve been writing this blog for 8-ish years now and I’ve been spinning my wheels the whole time, so obviously writing about losing weight does not actually cause one to lose weight. Who knew?

I thought I’d pop in and just post a quick update on what I’ve been doing and what’s been going on in my life.

My son graduated high school a couple of weeks ago. I’ve mostly been okay with it, except at his last band concert (he’s been in band since 5th grade) where I had to excuse myself to go cry in the bathroom. I sobbed big huge tears, just to get it all out of my system once and for all. At his actual graduation, I didn’t even cry at all – it was a happy day filled with friends and family and we had a lot of fun. He’s going to a local university, so he’ll live at home while he’s going there. I am not sad about that at all. 🙂

I’ve been reading Georgie Fear’s book Lean Habits, which I find phenomenal. She has such a great approach and I find it easy to work on the habits because it’s all ultimately up to me. I’m also reading a great book on exercise motivation – I’ll share more of that once I finish it, but so far, it is changing how I look at exercise. I am really happy with my food and exercise right now.

Speaking of working out – I joined a gym! It’s a women’s-only center and I absolutely love it. It’s pretty and girly and friendly and it has so much to offer: weight machines, cardio machines, plus so many other amenities, not to mention a massage chair that I have a serious crush on. The staff and other members are really helpful and I just like being there. I know the honeymoon probably won’t last forever, but for now I’m milking it for all its worth.

Looking at my calendar, it’s going to be a busy summer. Kids will be going to camp, we’ll all be going on vacation, my youngest is going to take a summer gymnastics session…better enjoy it because busy summers tend to fly by!

That’s all I have time for today, folks. I’ll be back to post again sometimes soon-ish.
