New beginnings

Sorry to deceive you with the title of this post. There’s actually no new beginning to be described. Life has continued in nearly the same routine since the last we’ve heard from one another. Turn, smile, shift, repeat as Phantom Planet would say. haha OK the song reference may be a little dark for my meaning.

Actually sitting and thinking, more has changed than I realize. I’ll just list three things right now so as to give me motivation to keep get back into posting on this thingamajig.

1) I moved into my own 1 bedroom apartment

There’s a surprisingly much different feel to living in an apartment on my own when I went into its acquisition on my own. I think living in a 2-bedroom without a roommate (when I used to have a roommate) felt like it was missing someone, but this feels just right.

Me and a small glimpse of my apartment (plus the map of the world my boyfriend so graciously purchased for me at christmas time and framed for me 5 months later for my birthday because I am that lazy.)

This is pretty much the only photo I have of the place, so imagine this times two plus a kitchen, bath, and study.

2) I started Strong Lifts

Me during one of my workouts.

For those unfamiliar with this workout :stronglifts-routine-starting-strength-routineReally liking it but have pretty much stalled on everything. Here are my current stalls:

Squat: 105lb
Bench: 70lb
Row: 70lb
Overhead Press: 50lb (can only do ~3 at this weight)
Deadlift: 130lb

I can tell I’m stronger than when I started, but stalling is frustrating (and annoying). But I’m sticking to it for now.  Going to try and change up the reps/sets.

3) I turned 25.

Hard to believe that when I started this blog, I thought of myself as someone who was just graduating and getting out into the world. It’s been 3 years since I graduated now, and while I don’t own a house or anything, I feel much more “out into the world” than I did when I started this thing.

Well, I’m off to the gym to either get into a TRX class or do a Stronglifts workout. Only fate will tell. (I’m on the waiting list)
