it's been awhile.

i had no idea that when i posted about starting my healthy lifestyle three months ago that i would basically be taking a hiatus. wasn't intentional, but you'll notice quite a difference in the look and feel of the blog! the beautiful and super talented Brittany from lifesetsail helped give my blog a little makeover. i switched to blogger from wordpress and i am so happy i did! i just need to get back into writing.
so... a lot has happened since January 6th when i last blogged! i wrote about getting healthy and i sure did just that. since January 5, which is when i started, I've lost 38.6 pounds exactly as well as 18.5 inches all over.
i feel amazing and am starting to feel like i look amazing which kind of go hand in hand in a way.

how'd i do it? i work out everyday and stick to a 1,200 calorie "diet" but i don't call it that because that's not what this is.
during the last 3.5 months, I've had a lot of struggles and bad days. i've been faced with so many temptations and days where i didn't want to do anything but i did. never did i regret the decision to get up and workout.
i have about 42 more pounds to lose and i KNOW i can do it. my family has been amazing and so have my friends. i was asked to be in my friend's wedding in September and so that's my end goal. but my vacation to savannah, ga and tybee island is coming up in TWO WEEKS and i cannot wait. i think i've been counting down since October when we made the reservation. i need a break from my routine at home.
so the other night...i decided i needed a change and my super awesome mom offered to cut my hair. i think she was expecting to only take off an inch at most...but i convinced her to just GO FOR IT and take off 5. it feels amazing!

i won't take such a long break this time, guys! i plan on blogging a lot and reflecting while on vacation and now that the blog is all pretty again, i will keep up with it so much more!
