Is this thing still on?

Hellloooooooooooo......? Is there anyone out there...out there...out there...?

For the past 6 months I've been telling myself that I'm going to get back to this. There must be so many new faces and stories out there and I want to catch up on everything! It been a year, less a week, since I've blogged but I really think that this is the turn around I need right now. I need to start feeling all-around good right about now.

So here is the run down of the last 12 months of my life: I started dating again. Like, really dating, and it's got me to a place that I am very comfortable with myself but almost too comfortable. Until 2 days ago, I hadn't been to the gym in probably 5 months. I fell out of the habit and it has been so difficult to get back into the habit because I'm never home. I'm always out doing things with other people. Going for dinners and drinks and desserts, lounging on the couch for hours on end watching videos that I don't care too much about. And eating. Did I mention eating? I'm no longer working out with a personal trainer (note the "haven't been to the gym in 5 months"). Nathan, unfortunately quit Fitness World so I don't get to work out with him anymore but I still talk to him occasionally over Facebook. I'm working in retail, managing a kiosk in BC's largest shopping mall and if it weren't for the people who ask me for directions all day, I would love it. I do love my job, I've just lost the patience to deal with people who are incapable of using their own devices to answer their own questions. But I love what I do.

That is pretty much the extent of the last year for me. Nothing too much has happened, and I am sorry to say that I haven't stuck with my goals this time. I feel like a very, very, warped and broken record for saying that this time....I'm going to try harder. I'm going to stick with it. I want to develop a support system and be accountable for my life choices. I miss the honesty and the vulnerability I felt when writing this blog and it is something that I would very much like to get back again.

The next few days are going to be spent revamping this blog to give it a fresh and new feel, but still have the old coziness of dear friends and wordless support from all of you! So stay tuned, buckle up, and feel free to harass me when I don't post enough! I can't wait to check in with everyone to see their progress!
