I am still here

It has been over a year since I have published a blog post and I could fill in where I left off, but then it becomes like one of those yearly newsletters from friends and relations which I do not get the point of sending or sharing. So it is time for a fresh start.

I am the clinical educator for my operating room now and am a year away from completing my Master's of Science in Nursing (MSN). My big challenge (which remains) is to get in shape and lose weight. I have started using a program online called My Fitness Pal. I have tried Weight Watchers at various times with varying amounts of success. The biggest barrier for me right now with Weight Watchers is that there are no meeting leaders here I like well enough. My Fitness Pall is easy, free, and no meetings required. I still have to track my food, which I hate, but I realize is the only way to keep caloric intake under control.

I am getting more exercise in at work.  I am trying to use the walking path which includes stairs and am planning on starting to commute via bicycle again to work.

So fresh start, new attitude, and new job. This time means success!
