A lengthy break...

I can't believe before today the last time I posted was April of last year.  Pathetic!  I rejoined Weight Watchers two months ago.  I've also started going to the gym more, and completed a 10k last month (not running the whole thing, of course).

I was going through my old medical records the other day and realized I had forgotten how much I weighed at my most during my pregnancy with Q.  I've lost 50 pounds since then.  Since I've started *really* trying this year, I've lost 20.  More exciting is that I'm able to fit into nicer, smaller clothes now!

I recently took a new job at the hospital and that has been an interesting transition for my eating habits.  Also, I'm not on my feet like I was at the office, so I know that's taking some getting use to.  My hope is to start getting more active this week and continue going to the gym several times a week.  I still have issues with tracking everything I eat, especially at the hospital.  The cafeteria has some yummy food!

Instagram has actually helped to keep me accountable.  I post photos of my food creations and how many calories I burn at the gym with my Polar watch.  I have a legion of WW friends there that also do the same and are very inspiring.  I make it a point to check IG at least once a day, or when I really need a boost.

Of course, every once in a while I turn back to the old blog to keep me going.  I'm hoping that I can continue to post now that I'm back on track!
