Aaaand We're Back...

How much do I suck at blogging if almost every post starts off with something like "long time no chat..." Oops. The foundation of Mumbles and Mishaps is that my life is not perfect and I make a lot of mistakes and f*ck up on a regular basis. Is my blog going to be perfect? No, because I am not perfect. *end rant*

Most recently, I participated in the TIU Bikini Series (yes, again). This time I stuck with it more than I have in the past. I used a bullet journal to track myself - #instagram thank you for that inspiration. My weight has been fluctuating throughout the series. The last couple of weeks I had MDW celebration, birthdays, and a high school reunion. Did I enjoy myself during all of those things? Yes. Did I worry about following the Bikini Series to a T those weekends? No. That's fine. I found that I had a lot of NSV (non-scale victories) throughout the challenge. My scrubs are fitting much better/some are getting to be too loose. Pants I thought I would need to donate are fitting again. MY SHORTS FIT! I did not think it was going to happen for me this year after holding onto my #senior20 that no one warns you about. I am going to do a whole post on Bikini Series 2k17 and my future plans once it ends.

Since I last posted, I also actually finished BBG for the first time, out of 3 tries, and am so proud of myself. I mainly focused on fitting in the 3 circuits into my weekly schedule with some cardio here and there. Do my before & after pictures look like the ones you see promoting the product? No. Did I tone up and overall feel like I had more stamina during a workout? Hell yes. I remember running on the elliptical and thinking "when did 30 minutes become so easy?" NOT ALL PROGRESS IS ABOUT OUTWARD PHYSICAL APPEARANCE though I do appreciate that kind of progress.

I have hit 6 months at work and I still absolutely love my job. I am also working on moving out into an apartment and there are going to be many, many posts about my experience with that. Quick and dirty - I found out I know nothing about apartment hunting and real-world "adulting" so maybe some of my mishaps could prevent a few of your own..

For those of you still reading, thank you. I hope to post again soon but knowing myself, no promises.

xox, Sarah
