This summer was a non-stop whirlwind. I’m talking full-fledged, “Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore” type tornado. There were days when I saw the other side of midnight and still didn’t manage to even turn on the computer. And though I could easily access the net through my iPad or my phone, more often than not, I was passed out in bed with my jeans still on and my mascara all cakey because the idea of getting ready for bed was just too much, knowing I’d have to get up and do it ALL OVER AGAIN the next day.
I’ve never had a summer like this one. I’m not sure what happened. I’m infamous for being incapable of saying no, but this was ridiculous. Fun, yes. Exhausting, yes. But ridiculous.
One thing that sucked up all my time was keeping to my weight-loss goals. I am that chronic dieter. The girl that since middle school has felt too fat and whose weight has won a gold in olympic yo-yoing. I’ve never been good at sticking to anything. I always got discouraged and quit. And I just didn’t want to quit anymore. This was going to be MY summer. When I took charge and said no more. I’m WORTH IT.
I graduated from P90X. Me! I couldn’t even do a knee push up when I started. Now I can do a few “boy” ones. 🙂 I feel great. I’m down almost 50lbs since last year. I feel confident, I feel excited. Honestly, I feel like anything is possible right now! It’s exhilarating!
Other than that, everything else was just summer stuff. Weekend trips, family vacations, cookouts, day trips, park, pool, mall, etc, etc etc. My 3 year old has lots of energy to burn and its impossible to do it sitting at home when the sun is so bright in the sky!
That said, I miss writing. I miss the interwebz. I miss Facebook!! Ha ha. Though I’ll admit, it’s nice to know I can live without it.
So it’s September. Fall is right around the corner. The air is taking on that beautiful, crisp cool that I love. And summer, with all its craziness is just about over (though it shows no signs of wanting to slow down).
There’s only a month until The Guardian’s Choice releases! I’m making all the last minute arrangements and psyching myself up to get back to work.
Go ahead and add it to your TBR list over at Goodreads! Feel free to ask me questions, to make predictions about what’s going to happen to the gang, or even swing by and say hello. 🙂
In the meantime, bring on Autumn. ❤
