(Insert Hashtag Here)

It’s been a while I know, I’m sorry interwebs. I started a new job 3 weeks ago and I’ve been busy-kins ever since! I now work as a graduate school enrollment advisor for one of the larger schools in Chicago. So far, I love it! I’m really happy to be working again and being challenged in new ways. I have also been adjusting to commuting on public transportation which has been an adventure and a half so far. Let’s just say, I have run more the last 3 weeks than I have in about 9 years only to battle out 1/2 a square of standing space amongst at least 50 high school students.

Meanwhile, I have also joined Weight Watchers. It’s time I get a little more serious and structured about my weight loss goals. I have been doing the online version and I have already seen and felt some changes but next week I’m switching to the weekly meetings, in hopes that doing the group thing will help boost my results and my motivation. The one thing I still haven’t quite figured out is exactly when in my day I will work exercise back into my routine. I suspect the best option will need to be either at 5 am or after 8 pm so as to not miss out on fun times with babycakes. I’m not much of a morning person so the 5 am option might be tough but the thought of dragging myself out of the house after babycakes’ bedtime when I could hang out on the couch with mancakes would be even tougher. In the meantime, I have been taking walks on my lunch breaks to make up for missing out on workouts during this time of transition.

And what a transition it has been! So much is happening all at once that normally I would shut down with so much but I am so energized by having some professional and financial stability again! Not to mention having a new place to go and new colleagues and friends. I’m pretty ecstatic about what this new chapter will bring both professionally and physically (more on this soon!).
