A Very Long Hiatus Ended

It has been just over three years since I have posted to this blog - so amazing how much I have changed since then, and how much I have accomplished - good to know my time has not been wasted.

The reason I stopped blogging is because I found out my insurance company was "monitoring" my blog - which made me feel as I could not be completely honest. Hopefully they gave up...lol

So, the main reason for my "resurrection" is because I actually have accomplished the goals I set out to do. I wanted to share them - and I need to get it out of my head. My poor husband gets bombarded by all of my information - and trust me I have a lot of info in my brain....I'm honestly hoping that writing again will help me "blow off some steam".

So some of the things that I have accomplished that I can recall off the top of my head:

Walked a few Half Marathons, walked 5K's and 10K's, Ran a Half Marathon. Began a program/gym called Mikilas Boot Camp - entered a contest he was having for 1 year and $10,000.00 - well I didn't take 1st - but I took 2nd and won $1,000.00, but I gained more than I could ever buy for my health and the change in my body - I can do 80 push ups in 2 minutes - REAL PUSHUPS for you who are wondering - (someone seems to always ask) among other crazy things....AND.....the MOST IMPORTANT   PART to ME - I am now 130 - 135 lbs. depending on the day. I have been this weight since about July of last year and have not deviated from it. I can now sit for long periods of time - and ride with my husband on the motorcycle w/out pain. I began swimming - and my first bicycle as an adult and have been able to begin riding it...not pain free yet. Many more things that I will share.......

Saturday will be my first triathlon - I made a goal to complete a triathlon by 40 - so I'm 40 now - so I think it counts...LOL...oh and I did a relay triathlon w/my family last year before I turned 40 haha...the main thing is I'm so happy with how far I have come since beginning this blog.
I have learned so much the past three years and I want to begin sharing them again. For myself - for my sanity - to get things off my chest - I guess oh well if its out here...
I seriously am worried about the new healthcare system - and information that is on the web could be used against people. BUT, oh well.....I'm not going to worry about it anymore. I have too much to share - and for the sake of my marriage I'm going to begin writing again.
