The blog section of this site is celebrating it’s third birthday today. if you look back in the archives, you won’t see my original test posts, but I know I started it on march 29th. It is also Sean’s and my 7th anniversary today. I really feel like our relationship has matured over the years. At least we still like each other, and Sean still makes me laugh. I guess we’ll keep each other – stay together for the cat at least.

I joined a gym again. I’m really excited about it since it has a pool and it’s close to my work as well as weight and cardio machines and lots of classes. I’m really trying to get healthy. I joined Weight Watchers just over five weeks ago and I’ve lost 11.6 pounds so far. This is good stuff. I haven’t talked about it here cuz a) I haven’t talked about much of anything here lately and b) it seems that weight stuff is all I talk about lately. My mom calls me and asks me how I did each week. I really appreciate the support, but I wish that my mom would talk to me about stuff besides my weight and my sister’s wedding. Both of these things are very important, but not the be-all and end-all of my life.

But yes, the gym – I’m going to start doing water aerobics again, and weight training and yoga classes. Really and truly. I’m so excited at the idea of becoming truly healthy. I’m proud that the phrase running through my head as of late is “Self, you can do anything you want to if you just put your mind to it.” It’s still scary, but empowering at the same time.
