Oh 3FC, how I have missed you. Sure, I read a blog every now and again when I am feeling out of control, but I haven’t posted in almost a year?! Can that be so? This last year of my life has been CRAZY. And you know what? Although the ENTIRE time I have worried about my weight, I weigh the exact same… up 7 pounds from my pre-Japan weight. Ironic. Here’s the year recap…

In June last year I get the crazy idea to take the CPA exam, you know… the one with the lower than 50% pass rate that you can only take in the US. So I buy some materials, put off grad school and get to studying. I have to arrange with my husband a schedule so he can be sure he’s able to get the boys after school and take care of them for a week (not easy when you are married to a Marine!), fly roughly 24 hours with layovers, fight jet lag, and THEN take that stupid test. I took one section and passed. Waited 2 months and took another and passed. Waited a month and took the 3rd and FAILED. So what do I do? Nothing. I keep studying for the last one and since it’s so expensive to fly to the states and take off work, I go ahead and try to retake the one I failed with NO studying. And I pass both. haha So, now I get to call myself a CPA, which I am uber proud of :) Of course, during this time I am studying whenever I am not at work (where I got a sweet promotion, but I work a lot more than 40 hours these days), and that isn’t easy on a relationship. So add the stress of fighting hardcore with my husband to all the test anxiety and you can imagine… emotional eating. I have gained and lost the same 10 pounds this last year.

The weird part is that I am either on track for eating or for exercising, but never both at the same time. UGH! I wish I could just fix whatever is jacked up in my head so I could so both simultaneously. So, I am going to try to blog again. I’ll start with my diet tomorrow (I didn’t write anything down today). And call me out if I don’t show up!!
