Hi Lovely Friends!

In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off & have stayed off. Currently I am still not 100% at my "goal weight", but I have come to reflect on those 2 years & I realized, although I lost that weight, I was the most stressed out,obsessive and unhappy while dieting.

Hi Lovely Friends!

In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off & have stayed off. Currently I am still not 100% at my "goal weight", but I have come to reflect on those 2 years & I realized, although I lost that weight, I was the most stressed out,obsessive and unhappy while dieting.
I am resetting my life. I have achieved so many other life goals during that time and am so proud of myself. However,I can thank that time for introducing me to things I never thought in a million years I could do. I am a runner,a cyclist, a boot camper, a yogi and have found peace through meditation. I have explored and learnt so much about my body and how it works physically,mentally and nutritionally. I have a great basis now to propel my new direction into better overall health. Life is too short to beat yourself up over calories and whether or not you worked out enough to burn said calories. If being active results in losing weight so be it but the scale won't control me anymore, my happiness will.
I.CAN.DO.THIS.

Just sent out a batch of applications. Hopefully my "something set aside" rests within one of those apps!

Thanks for all the positivity!

Thanks for the blog comment! I'm not going to worry about things too much and will see what happens next month!

I'm a high waisted jean fan too!

Thank you for your blog comment! Attorneys are a pretentious bunch, so for some reason, it matters to them how I got to passing. Which is ridiculous. I've had a hard time coming up with a smooth way to explain my situation, but it's difficult. All they hear is "fail" or "not the first... or the second..."

I spoke with someone who was on her second go-time, and we talked about "the stigma of retest taking." It is kind of this unspoken thing in the law community that having to take the test again is embarrassing and taboo. So to bring it up in an interview... ugh. Of course, it has to be brought up because I graduated in 2013 but didn't get sworn in until 2015. Math isn't the best subject for attorneys, but we can at least see the gap there.

Good things DO come to those who wait-- it is a good saying and worth say it! I jut have to keep at it and remember. Thanks again!

I am super nervous about this triathlon. Its a very short distance as far as tris go; from what I've seen online anyway. The swimming portion is at the public pool, which opens next week. I'll get a week of swimming in before the event. I plan to also ride me bike to/fro work that next week as well. So I'll get some practice doing 2 things back to back. A friend signed up to do it with me, so I'm not as scared. However, this friend has ran a half marathon sooo.....

I feel kind of like a dork cause I really have no idea what to expect and no one that I know has done one before and I'm just going to be riding my cruiser bike, but whatever. I can say I did it and I'm sure we'll have fun. Right!?

Good lord somebody stop if I try to purchase legit biking gear, lol.

PS. How's the new job?
