Lots of news and All Hallows’ Eve Celebration!

Ok so I feel like I’ve fallen off the face of the planet. I will try and keep this post as short and sweet as possible but I have a lot to discuss! First off, I found out I got accepted into Graduate School! I will be starting off my Masters degree in History this spring. I am so excited and I can not wait! Also, I have been working training at my new job and I start working all on my own next week. All of this is kind of nerve wracking but I am ready for change and challenges! Of course, all this has taken up a lot of time as well and as I have still struggled to eat healthy and work out as much as possible it has kind of fallen at my waist side in terms of importance and I can tell I have gained weight and I don’t feel quite up to par. I, however, am not going to give up!

This quote says it all. Sometimes you may have struggles and you may take a few steps back but you can either choose to give up or continue to strive for progress. I for one can not and will not let myself fall back into being lazy and unhealthy so I will keep trying as much as I can! I am limited to what I can do as far as cardio because I pushed myself to much to soon but I know I can strength train and build up my metabolism and eat healthy as much as I can. I need to get cravings in check and I will keep trying and I hope this inspires some of you out there!
I will end with a little Halloween picture from this past weekend!

I hope all of you have a safe and fun Halloween!

The place where dreams come true

Now, you may all be wondering what is up with the weird title and I am so excited to tell you! But you’ll have to hold on just a minute for that answer.

So, if you have read my last post you know that Easter I totally let myself go. Easter treats were just too tempting and it was ultimately my downfall. It set me back from all the hard work and progress I had made so far. Nevertheless, as sucky as it may be I am not giving up!

I have no realized that to make progress sweets are just going to have to no longer be a part of my life. Every time I have just a little it brings back my sweet tooth and I indulge big time. So from now on my cheat meals will have to stay far far away from anything sweet and sugary. I think I can do it…I know I can do it1! I feel a little bummed out that I kind of ruined my progress but reading some inspirational quotes has put it into perspective for me, so I hope these may help you too.

No one is perfect, everyone fails and all you can do is keep going! I will not let myself slip back into a unhealthy lifestyle and I will keep going at it!

Now, back to that title….GUESS WHAT!?

This girl right here has made plans to go to Disney!! I have been wanting to go since it  has been since high school since I went. Which is just way too long ago ( where has the time gone?) I had been reading a blog where the author had just finished the Goofy Marathon and I was intrigued as to what other events they had coming up. As I scanned the events they had lined up through the year one caught my eye right away.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler!!

For those who don’t know, my favorite holiday of all time, ALL TIME, is Halloween. So when I saw Disney, Halloween, and running all mixed together I was sold. So my and my fellow running buddies will be heading down to Orlando this October to get our run on and I could not be more excited. However, I have never ran that long of a distance so the thought is kind of scary but the fact I have set a goal to have myself ready for it is motivation for me to get my run on and up my training. EEEEEKKK I’m still so excited. Can not wait!

Also, I have MORE news. I found out I will be going to visit my brother in New York for my birthday in May! I will only be there for a few days so I will have to squeeze in as many activities as I can in that short amount of time. If any of you have any suggestions that would be greatly appreciated!
