Well I hit my goal last year and I maintained pretty well! This summer's indulgence got away with me a little bit though, and I gained 10 lbs.

So I'm back again to start being more conscious again.

I'm training for a couple runs coming up. I have a 10k in about 3 weeks (mid-October 2014), and a half-marathon in March. I'm really nervous about the half-marathon!

In the time since I've last logged in, I've switched careers and moved countries! I am now a full time physics teacher and I live in Germany (near the border with the Czech Republic). I am absolutely loving my life here (though the beer isn't helping with my weight maintenance)... but I've met several friends who are all living healthy lifestyles, and one of who has turned out to be the PERFECT running partner for me, so I feel very lucky!

    Good morning! or good afternoon? Well i don't have a much bigger living room and i do it in there. Just enough to do jumping jacks, and push ups, I think that is the widest u go . u should be fine! Yesterday i didn't do a cotton picking thing. I hardly ate. It is hot here and no appetite. I have had a headache for like 6 days now. Not really in the mood to pound away on the pavement, or anything else.
    I am gonna get out today tho, and walk at least on lunch. Baseball started for the middle boy. So we are busy at nightmonday and wednesday nights, I work till 7 on thursday, My summer is shot already and it hasn't even begun yet! I will checks in later! Have a good rest of your day!
