To 100, and Beyond! But I totally almost typed "Beyonce"

Today's post is a special post.

First, it's my first post since January, but for good reason...

It is my 100th blog post!

I  have big news too!

This guy and I have gotten an apartment of our own and moved in together.
Our huge living room

Dining room. I'm in the process of re-covering a bench to use  as a seat instead of the one un-matching chair
Also, remember all that long, glorious hair I had? 

 Well, it's all (mostly) gone!

It's taken me a billion years to write this post because my beloved Frankenstein (my laptop) has finally died and there is no fixing him. Although I've had access to the outside world via Internet, I haven't had a reason to blog. I didn't keep up with the weight loss posts because, well, I've gained all the weight back. I guess I've only gained around 10lbs back, but that's all I really lost. I haven't been to the gym in I have NO idea how long. 

But...the main reason I gained all the weight back? I quit smoking on January 15th, 2013. We had a meeting at work, and afterwards I smoked the last cigarette in my pack and told a fellow manager "This is it. I'm done smoking." And haven't picked up a cigarette since. 

I used an electronic cigarette for the first week, but it sucked so I stopped. I can't say its been easy. I lived in a house of 5 smokers, Justin smokes, his mom smokes, my cousins, coworkers, friends...all smoke. Even typing this I'm getting a huge hankering for a delicious tar stick, but I know it will kill me, and the damage I've done is already irreversible. I keep wanting to smoke, but not bad enough to actually do it. 

The reason I blame not smoking on my weight gain? Replacement cravings. My body has to crave something in place of the it craves sugar. Chocolate, cookies, candy, cake...if it contains massive amounts of sugar, my body has to have it. Right now? I'm drinking a large espresso, syrup, ice cream base and chocolate drink. Known as a frozen mocha, or Frappuccino if you go to Starbucks, but whatever it came from Sheetz and why does that even matter? The point is, sugar and caffeine have become my vices. 

I'm glad I finally have something to write about, as I know you were all compulsively checking my Facebook and Twitter to make sure you didn't miss anything. I plan to write a new post soon about either my success or utter failure at re-covering an old bench seat. 

As soon as we get settled in and I have Internet access, I'll try to be more regular in my posting! 

Until next time, drop me a line on Twitter, friend me on Facebook, follow me on Pinterest and re-read all my old posts so you never forget I used to be funny and a semi good blogger!

  1. Congrats on the new place AND I love the haircut. I am too scared to cut my hair off like that, but then again, I have curly hair and the keratin may not work as well with my hair shorter.
