Better, Faster, Stronger

After originally titling my page "from Fat Coxswain to Skinny-In-The-Stern", I had a sort of epiphany and realized I need to stop focusing on skinny and get better at focusing on feeling healthier. I workout and eat right to be better, faster, and stronger...not JUST to fit into smaller jeans.

Explanation for my original page name and current username: I've been a coxswain for a masters women's rowing team for the last couple of years. Lately, my schedule as a student, employee, and intern has led to a lot of stress eating. My home and financial life have also gotten more complicated which has led to a lot of 'relaxing' alcohol consumption. I'm hoping "going social" will help me actually keep to some of my goals and priorities. Then, when I get back to coxing this summer, I'll be back to the size that fits in that tiny little seat in the stern.

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog post.

It's really comforting to know I'm not the only one who took a break! I can't help but feel a bit guilty- if I stuck with it consistently from when I first started WAY back in December, I'd be in a very different place right now.

Ugh. Oh well. Time to get back at it!

I hope you're doing well emoticon
