Wow, I seriously neglected this blog.
I still aim to live the healthy life, I just need to learn not to get so obsessed.
Updates since…wow end of December 2011:
-got a boyfriend in March 2012 (as sad as it sounds, nothing exciting happened before then. That’s just how it worked out)
-graduated college in May 2012
-started what was supposed to be a great music internship in June
-quit in July cause they shiiiiiiitty people
-joined a gym down the street from my mall in June. Started off going there slowly but surely and now I’ve increased to not liking missing a day. I prefer doing the classes but in order to not get lazy I force myself to “do my own thing” a few days a week. About a half hour of weights/strength moves. Sometimes about 15-20 mins depending on intensity and just how fast I finish the two routines I print out.
-boyfriend joined The Town Pants and I joined them for some of the more local dates of tour to run their merch table. I’ll be doing it again this summer so if they stop anywhere near you, check them out!
-I went to working my two retail jobs as full time as possible. Which is still not enough to make as much money as I need in life.
-quit one job in October cause they shiiiiiitty people
-weighed myself and realized I lost ten pounds since coming home from school. Must have been all that standing at work? I didn’t change my diet much (I always aim to keep it clean and healthy)
-turned 22 in October
-went through a lot of ups and downs this year. Mainly with the stereotypical post-grad analysis.
-Spent a lot of time in NYC visiting my boyfriend while he did his student teaching
-we decided we’re gonna move in together in August!
-In Ohio, where he’s going to grad school
and now here I am. Hovering between 119-120ish range weight wise. Kind of stuck in my life, I really just go to work, work out, come home and read or watch TV. I have friends but no one ever reaches out to hang out with me so I’ve stopped trying with some of them too. I can’t be the only one always asking people to go get dinner or see a movie. Moving to Ohio will be moving to another small college town, about an hour and a half away fro Cleveland and four hours away from home, but I think a change will be good for me. Not to mention I love my boyfriend and we can obviously withstand long distance, but we were only physically near each other for 1.5 months before he moved back home…and then moved back to our college town to tour with the band. That’s an hour away from me, so it’s still long distance. If he moved to Ohio and I didn’t but we stayed together…it would just be even harder. He’s worth it, we’re worth it, but I just can’t keep doing it.
So I’m aiming to check in here more often. I’m still working on recovering from several EDs but every day is a challenge that I strive to overcome in that sense. For example, I didn’t get to eat that much yesterday and as I was visiting my boyfriend I managed to eat three pop-tarts and split a basket of fries with him (there may have been, ahem, other substances that led to these decisions haha) and I managed not to freak out…too much.
So yeah, I see 21 of you have stuck around (which I think was the same amount I left with?) so thanks.
Please update me on your lives! I know some of us were starting to interact more once I took my unannounced hiatus.
