Carolyn's Attempt at a Page... and a Lifestyle Makeover

I'm here to get my life under control... the eating/drinking/exercise portion, anyway. I'm days away from 30 (update 7/9/10: I now AM 30. Ugh.) and am finding it harder and harder to stay in shape and lose an extra pound or two. How I miss the days of my early 20s when I'd "diet" (i.e. live on Ramen noodles and vodka)and "exercise" (by that I mean put on some cute workout gear and hang out at the Rec Center) for a week and be down three dress sizes. Those were the days ;)

Those were the days ;)

I started this whole let's-get-back-into-shape in June 2010. I signed up for my first 5K and started training. Amazingly, I didn't die. And to my utter astonishment, I finished under my (extremely slow) goal time... I came in at 33:54. A few weeks later I began a Boot Camp Challenge class. I'm now completely obsessed with it... so fun! I've also been eating SO much healthier. Does anyone else find it kind of like a game, with the food tracking thing? You know, let's see how much food we can possibly cram into our daily calorie allotment? I do. haha. So far, so good.

My biggest vice in life is wine. Not sure how that's going to fit into this new lifestyle of mine. I can't do moderation with wine. Sorry, just can't. Don't give me a glass, pass over the bottle. Please and thank you. Guess I'll have to limit myself to once a week.


And now since I'm so creative, I'm going to copy and paste, word for word, the "About Me" section from my facebook page. 'Cause I know you're dying to know more about me. Right? Right. :)

Personally:
I truly love my life and enjoy each and everyday, I have incredible friends and family, I'm ridiculously impatient, I talk fast... and tend to talk over people, I get bored easily, I lived in St. Louis long enough to have a slight (and quite unfortunate) accent, I love to laugh, I'm a happy easygoing person but have been called a bitch on more than one occasion, volleyball is my favorite sport... especially sand, I hate nature but I love snow, I spoil my two longhaired dachshunds like they're children, I've become much more of an optimist lately, I have a ridiculous obsession with sushi and designer jeans, my nickname in highschool was "Smiley", I have an amazing husband, I wear heels everyday, I'm a perfectionist (which has its faults), I'm obsessed with real estate, most days I would prefer to be on a beach somewhere... although I'm terrified of water, I'm the biggest people pleaser I know, I'm generally quiet, I drink far too much wine, I'm beginning to love the gym and running again, I have a serious problem with the snooze button, people with bad grammar really bother me, I love hats, my favorite color is green, I'm really looking forward to my thirties, I avoid conflict at all costs, I love lazy summer days by the pool, I really want to go to Europe, I'm a total germaphobe and never leave home without hand sanitizer, I have an incredible outlook on life and can't wait to see where it takes me.

Professionally:
I want to sell you a home! I am a NYS licensed real estate agent and wholeheartedly love what I do. I have over 6 years experience selling real estate, specializing in residential resale and new home construction. I especially enjoy working with first-time home buyers... so rewarding! With a degree in interior design I am also skilled in home staging. Please contact me if you or anyone you know is interested in buying or selling real estate in New York's capital region. I'd love to help!

Yeah! The scale is not moving anywhere...and it sucks because I'm working out 6 days a week, 30 mins...and also staying at the low end of my calorie range. I just need more protein. But that's about it. I was on here when I was 18 (back in the day) and it seemed so much easier! Crap! Getting old SUCKS!

Hey chick! I added you to my sparkpage "friends" because you inspire me. You seem very cool (like myself..haha) and very similar to what I'm doing...(bootcamp classes...cardio...same calorie range...weight loss goals).

I've hit a wall this week! Hopefully it will get better!
