Confessions of a Bad Blogger


Wow!  I have been a bad blogger!  *Bad blogger*  I haven’t written a post since August of last year.    So much has changed since then.  After much prayer and deliberation, I decided to leave my job at Family First in Tampa to go back into the classroom.  I have been teaching German at Central High School in Brooksville, Florida as a long-term substitute since August 24th.  I applied to Asbury Seminary in the hopes of pursuing a Masters of Divinity, but have deferred that application while I wait to be hired full-time.

While I really miss working with all the great people at Family First, I have to say that I absolutely love being back in the classroom.  I love working so close to home…my commute went from over an hour to less than 15 minutes!  And most of all, I love that I’m able to spend so much more time with my niece and nephew.

I’ve continued to work on my weight-loss and I am currently at 306 pounds…about 75 pounds down from my highest weight.  I haven’t been as dedicated as I should or could have been, but I continue to make positive progress.  In fact, I have been in communication with the casting producers from The Biggest Loser and Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition regarding the next seasons of both shows.  I’m also joining a “competition” here locally in Hernando County with a couple of girlfriends.  On top of that, another girlfriend and I are walking together twice a week at one of our local walking parks.  I’m highly motivated and committed to making all the changes I need to in order to reach my ultimate goal of 120-135 pounds and being the most fit of my life.

So, I am sorry for being gone so long.  I won’t make any promises I can’t keep, but I will say that it won’t be so long between my next post.  Also, if you’ve been following my Weight Loss Wednesdays, I’ll be back in the swing next week.
