I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve lasted posted. I really needed a break. I couldn’t think of topics to write about and I have been extremely busy. There has been a lot of change for me the past half year and it’s just been crazy.
For one thing, I needed to take a break from some social media. I haven’t been on Instagram, Snapchat, etc. for a while now. I still used Facebook but that was just to be able to communicate with friends and family. I want to live and enjoy life. Not live life behind a camera. Plus, it kind of sucks that no matter how hard I try, I tend to compare myself to others on social media. Taking a break has made me realize that I shouldn’t compare my life to others and I should just be happy and live my life. Everyone usually only posts the “good” parts of their life, not the not so fun day to day stuff.
I also started taking guitar lessons a few months ago since I thought it’d be cool to learn something new and plus I love music. It’s so different from playing the cello and violin, which I’m used to. I also have a new boyfriend, which has been going great. We workout together and do everything together. It’s nice to be with someone that has the same goals as you.
We’ve been to many places together already. We went to Disneyland, we started to going to a lot of brewfests, EDC Las Vegas, and to Belfair, Washington during the 4th of July weekend. It’s been fun being able to travel and do things with each other.
I have gained weight because of all of these vacations though, which sucks. That’s the price for eating too good during vacations. Before Disneyland (which was at the end of March), I weighed under 130 lbs, the lowest I had been in over three years. Now, I’m close to 140 lbs. I want to get back under 130 lbs. My goal weight is 120 – 125 lbs.
It’s not impossible to lose 15 pounds but it is always hard when you don’t have that much weight to lose to begin with. The good thing is that my bf and I are on the same page with losing weight, which helps. We both like working out and trying to eat healthy, but we also love eating good food (which doesn’t help sometimes either). But since we both gained weight because of the vacations, we are working together to lose the weight we gained.
I’ll be posting about my weight loss journey here. 🙂 For the most part, I do look the same but I don’t feel as well as I should. Of course, I want to lose weight the healthy way. I’ll post my plan on the next post. I just wanted pop in and say hi.
What have you guys been up to?
Do you guys need social media break sometimes?
