Summertime Fun and New Job!

It's summer.

But I know you already know that.

Summer is that time of year where people relax, take vacations, and enjoy the weather. 

I did all of the above - I didn't go anywhere this year - we usually just stick around town and have our "staycation" and go to movies and hang out with friends.  The last couple of summers, I have been very rigid with myself when it comes to my exericise regime and my eating habits.

This year...not so much.

I wanted to relax more - which apparently I needed to do.  I got out with friends and went to a few movies.  But I also cut back on my exercise and pretty much ate what I wanted. 

And yeah...I've gained a little bit of weight.  But you know what?  Oh well. 

This time around, I'm not going to freak out about it.  I have worked really freaking hard lately and I know I will lose the weight again.  I fell off the wagon, but have gotten back on.  Shit happens...and I'm dealing with it.  I wanted to have fun this summer and I routine fell out the window - my fitness classes at the YMCA ended for the summer and I was on my own - or I felt that way...and that's okay.  I know how to kick my own ass when I need to.

Onto more positive things...I got a new job!  It's the Administrative Assistant position in the same department where I am presently.  It's a step up and I am so happy about it.  I am happy that I get to stay working with the same great group that I currently work with.  I am hoping to start it near the end of September, but that will be dependant on how the training goes with the person that takes over my present position. 

So that's my summer so far in a nutshell...lots of relaxing, laughing, and just having fun - something I just haven't done in a LONG TIME...oh ya...and a new job to look forward to!

In case you are wondering...yes I am back to my routine...eating clean (well most of the time) and exercising 5-6 times a week.

Onwards and upwards!
