I'm a Latin woman. I get curvy. I get stressed and Lord knows I like food.
So naturally my weight fluctuates.
On the positive side- I'm feeling so fantastic right now. I've lost quite a bit of weight and my clothes don't fit anymore. It's almost like, God knows I was going through a tough time so he left the weight loss gift at the door. (Thanks!)
I've also signed up for a few races and have been running just a bit to keep in shape for them. I actually like the running culture and am happy to sign up for them. I have a half marathon in March I'm hoping to get into.
Now comes the challenge of keeping it off.  And I think I can. I have a solid structured schedule right now and when I squeeze a workout in it feels awesome because I'm doing it for me.
The food is another story. I'm pretty good about it but I definitely need to stay on top (no late night anything)
Workout tips are welcome!

What I Did For Love

I'm a firm believer in fight for whats worth fighting for.
I thought what my ex and I had was worth it. I tried. I fought for it. I even offered a move. and I forgave him.
But there comes a point where you have to stop. Because I was putting love for myself aside. I was not taking care of myself and my needs. And that point is when you realize they aren't fighting for you and its completely one-sided.
So now at this point, its a weird feeling where, I can't believe someone would throw something so special away. Thats not the type person I want to be with. I don't respect people who hold no value in relationships especially at our age where if you find someone you truly want to spend the rest of your life with,  you work it out. You tough it out in the tough times, you don't just drop the person when you get busy. Relationships / special people are not disposable and replaceable.  And thats how he made me feel towards the end.

I'm not replaceable. I am special. I am intelligent, pretty, talented and worth a damn. So if he doesn't want to appreciate me, so be it because someone else will.
And frankly, I'm excited to meet the next awesome person to come into my life.

Til the Moons Upside Down

So let people wonder
Let 'em laugh
Let 'em frown
You know I'll love you
Till the moon's upside down
Don't you remember
I was always your clown
Why try to change me now

-Excerpt from Fiona Apple's 'Why try to change me now?'

Sometimes I play music just as background and while I'm working I'll hear one line and have to stop what I'm doing to focus on the song and look up all the lyrics in order to find the backstory. 
This was a gem and struck a chord. pun intended. :)
