I Ran Away and Got Lost....

I know, I know, I was going to do better and post daily but then life happened and I didn't post one day, which led to two days, a week, a month and then it had just been too long to put something up because I didn't really have a reason for my break or anything to say.  I got laid off from my job in January (good start to the year right??) and for several months I didn't really know what I was going to do with my life.  I had several great jobs in my past and I really like the one I lost so I was just slightly in limbo.  With the loss of my job came the cancellation of my CrossFit membership and that kinda broke my heart and seemed to make my workouts less fun.  I tried to keep up with them at my home gym but I just didn't have the same intensity without my workout friends.

After a few months of soul searching (and very little working out or eating healthy) I made a pretty big decision in my life.  I have left the housing market completely and re-enrolled in school.  Not a traditional college like most would think, I already got that diploma, no, I have enrolled in beauty school.  Hopefully in 11 months I will be the proud owner of a state cosmetology license.

I always said I would never go back to school but just shopping for the schools supplies made me so excited!

Week One and I'm already getting hands on!  But first let me take a selfie!

This has been something I have wanted for years and I'm still not really sure why it has taken me so long to take this step and go for it but now that I have made the decision to do it I am so ready!!!!  I finally have a daily schedule, something that I have missed over the last 7 months.  You all know I LOVE a schedule.  When my day has no structure I find myself not getting to the gym and eating junk....and I'm hoping my new lifestyle can help me lose this weight that I have gained over the last 7 months.

I'm not trying to pretend that I haven't gained weight cause I have and its pretty obvious so its time to get back into focus and headed back to the goal weight.  I have proven that I haven't figured out this healthy lifestyle thing yet cause I still continue to yo-yo with my weight but by golly I sure as hell haven't finished trying!

I'm not making any promises cause I'm still adjusting to my schedule but I'm going to try to get back to my blog (cause I love it and miss it sooooo much) and in the next few weeks I will be joining back up with my CrossFit folks (which by the way just makes me smile to type those words!)

I hope to get all my readers back after my leave of absence so feel free to share with your friends, and if your not much of a blog reader you can follow me on Instagram or Twitter @fatgirltothin.
