Once upon a time, I was a blogger.
I miss those days. I miss writing. I miss reading other people’s blogs. I miss you all!
I’m really sorry I haven’t kept up with this. I started this new blog because I wanted to give myself a fresh start with everything, and all I’ve ended up doing is pretty much ignoring it.
It’s gotten to the point where part of me has thought about quitting on occasion, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I have more that I want to say, and my journey isn’t over yet.
So with that…I am back. I am going to make a commitment to myself, and to you person who is probably my only reader left.
So yeah, I’m back.
Let’s start with what the hell I’ve been up to!
For starters, I got a new job. I’m still with the same company, but I went from being a Claims Processor to an Operations Analyst, which basically means I get to deal with all of the issues and shit that noone else wants to deal with! It’s stressful at times, but I kind of love it. The days go by really fast, I’m always dealing with something different, and I have the potential to have a lot more days opened up for me.
I’m also salary now, which sucks in that I’ve lost my overtime, but doesn’t suck in that I get higher pay without having to work 60-70 hours a week. This leads to a lot more time to focus on myself, which…
…still hasn’t been really happening. I’m back above 300 pounds again, and my gym schedule has been sporadic. I put my CrossFit membership on hold, in hoping to save some money, but I’m want to rejoin soon. I really miss it, and I miss the community that I was a part of there.
Oh, and I turned 30 yesterday! I’m officially an old man. :/
Seriously though, I’m okay with 30. I made a lot of mistakes in my twenties, and I feel like I have an opportunity to seize the thirties and start doing things right. I’m starting my thirties as a college graduate, and in more of a “career” position now, which is awesome. I’m bigger than I would have liked to have been, but it’s okay, because I am going to work on that.
I have rejoined Weight Watchers. I’m not sure why I end up getting so resistant to it, when it’s the one thing that has really worked well over the years. Right now I’m just doing Weight Watchers Online, but I would like to start going back to meetings too.
In closing, been busy as shit, got fat again, turned old, but am trying to make things right.
And here is a picture of me and my cats, because what crazy cat dude blog would be complete without one?
It feels good to be home.
