16 Months Later...

I cannot say that I cannot believe that I haven't post anything in the last 16 months because I know I haven't! What I can say is that I can't believe how quickly time passed. So let's see what happened to me in the last 16 months...
  1. Good news first... I lost 20 lbs in a year (guh, the last 5 lbs are the hardest!) and able to keep the pounds off for almost 3 months now. I am able to get back into my old clothes (even my favourite high school ones that I still keep! :D) and get back in shape. What I did I do to lose weight? The long-no-nonsense way. It's true that there's no shortcut in losing weight and *keeping* it that way. I change into a healthier lifestyle, exercise and diet. It's simple, really...once you get the hang of it. Now, I can look at a plate of dishes and pretty much guessed how many calories in there. It sort of becomes your habit when you've been doing it everyday.
  2. I'm working to overcome my fear of running. When I was in high school, I was such a bookworm that I hate any form of physical activity. My seniors made me run a 1.5K race during sports day once, and I feigned fainting in the first 500 mtrs. Haha… I don’t know why I hate running so much--probably because of the puffing and panting and the fear of dropping dead because of that, lol. Anyway, my physical fitness had improved a lot since I started exercising, so I thought it would be a major boost to my confidence level if I participated in a 5K race just to proof that I can. So now, I’m working towards that and in less than two months time, I will have my first race. :) At least then, when anybody tries to look down on me, I can say 'Huh, can *you* run a 5K and survive it?' LOL.
  3. Bad news now, I was involved in 3 car accidents in the last 16 months. Yup, three. It was beyond scary, especially the first time. It was an experience I don’t ever want to repeat again but I did…twice after that. Sometimes when I go to sleep, I can still remember how my tyres screeched and the collision that followed.
  4. I’m still working at the same place as last time and still looking for a better job. No luck thus far.
  5. I’m still into SS/HG and read the fanfics now and again (when time allows) but ever since I’m dating someone with the name initial, SS, my muse had left me and I can’t write a decent story to save myself. Sigh.
Well, that’s about it!

zyra, signing off… ;)
