It’s the end of September and there have been a lot of developments since the last time I wrote. For once, I traveled to DC; Ocean City, Maryland; and San Diego. I went down to DC to visit Kelly, which was so nice. We just spent the time eating and drinking and it was so nice to be back in the city that I love so much. I always have a good time in DC no matter how short the time is and it really was nice to just get away from NJ for a little bit. Then, I went down to Ocean City for four days with Amanda and Brooke which was amazing. OC is such a nice area where the beach was amazing and there were a ton of bars and places to hang out. It was nice to get away from work for a couple of days and to really be able to relax. Seacrets was heaven on earth and we basically spent our entire vacation there which was amazing. My last trip was this past weekend and it was to San Diego. Being in San Diego was just incredible. I took a free flight out there with my Uncle and spent the entire time with my cousin and it was just so nice. I love California so much. Everything about the culture, the atmosphere, the landscape and the people fits with the things which I value and find important. I ate such amazing food and got to see all the coolest things that San Diego has to offer. It was such an incredible experience and I cannot wait to go back.
I have also been feeling really great about myself and the work I have been putting into my body. I have been going to the gym three to four times a week and I think it really has been showing. When I was in Ocean City, I got a lot of compliments on the way that I looked but more importantly I never felt as confident in what I was wearing. When I go to the gym, I still feel self conscious in some of the things that I do, but for the most part I am proud of the type of training that I have been doing and I don’t really worry about what is going on around me. Some days are definitely harder than others, but for the most part I feel good about how it has been going and although some days I don’t feel like I am making progress, I know that I am getting stronger and that certain parts of my body are changing, even if they are small changes.
