I had a great weekend. I took off work last Friday to spend the day with my niece. She's finally back in the US for good and they spent a few days in NJ before heading down to there home in DC. It was a great day and so worth me missing a day of work for. We went to the beach and then to a BBQ that afternoon. She is fearless in the water. It's amazing.

Loving the sand and the waves

She loved getting knocked around by all the waves. She would hold my hands and then kick out her feet!

Then on Saturday we went up to visit my grandma. Since a lot of my family haven't seen my niece in well over a year, we had a little party. It was great and my niece looked adorable in her little party dress.

Here we are on my grandma's stoop.

The weekend was great but ended way to fast. I miss her already but am looking forward to seeing them again in a few weeks. It's great know that they are only a car ride away now. No longer a very long plane ride! I am looking forward to seeing them much more often and creating awesome memories with her.

Before and After Picture

I had a friend of mine put this picture together to celebrate my gym's 3rd year anniversary. It's so easy for me to forget sometimes just how far I've come in just two short years. This helped put the fire back under me to get moving again and to finally hit my goal weight!

What do I want to be when I grow up?

I'm 28 years old and I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life. This is something I've been struggling with for a few months now. I've been at my work for almost 5 years now and I think I'm ready for a change. I've become complacent and a little bored. I've also been given promises of a new job that have yet to be seen through.

I love where I work though. I love my friends here and the benefits/perks they give us. It's truly a wonderful company. I just feel stuck lately. And I don't know how to get unstuck. I say I need a new job but I haven't even so much as looked around. Mostly because I have NO IDEA what I would want to do next. I know if I were to make a change, it would be to something totally different. And that is so scary.

The unknown is terrifying. And I would be jumping in feet first. I just wish I had some inkling of what to do next. All I do know is I need to stop talking the talk and start walking the walk. I need to take action in some way.

I hate feeling so lost. It's making me sad and not only that, it's making me overeat. I'm up like 8 pounds right now and I am absolutely miserable. I feel awful inside and out. Today's a new day though. I'm back on track with my eating and hopefully this weekend I'll be brave enough to start looking around for new opportunities.
