It has been a while. So many things, SO MANY. Well..about the time I stopped writing, I was starting to apply for jobs, mine at the time was showing the writing on the wall that it was time to move on. I really liked that job, the people, and being able to grow into different positions but, it was time to move on. Starting at the end of August, life threw me a big one: interview for a job IN MY FIELD. Yes, a job where my chosen educational subject area was used. I got the job after labor day. I put in my two weeks mid September, and moved out of Connecticut, and back to Buffalo. I spent 5 years and met some of the best humans I know. I miss them, daily. I actually do miss New England: the ocean is close, great hiking, decent food when you can find it, and my friends, but I do NOT miss the epic amount of driving I was doing everyday. I’m going back soon, but it has been quite a ride. 2 weeks notice, moving, starting new job, starting new derby league, loving new job, having no free time, training, sleeping, eating, and now…time enough to write again.
My litany of food crimes: dude you don’t even want to know what I’ve done in a YEAR…which included a vacation to Rome/Florence right after Christmas with family, and a work trip to France a couple of weeks ago.
Fitness goals: I did NOT drop smolov! I only missed one workout due to moving, and hit a 1RP of 205 the weekend of Thanksgiving! I played on the B travel team, was the resident fill in Troll for home teams (so in short, I’ve played numerous games January until now). Bad thing: my hip is screwed. I have no idea what it is, but going to the Ortho not soon enough since deadlifting is PAINFUL and I’m trying to not hurt myself more.
Dean knows what not deadlifting is…
