"Unwritten" - Natasha Bedingfield
I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined, I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned... Feel the rain on your skin. No one else can feel it for you. Only you can let it in. No one else, no one else can speak the words on your lips. Drench yourself in words unspoken. Live your life with arms wide open. Today is where your book begins. The rest is still unwritten ...-

It's been just over a month since I moved to Virginia Beach. I've spent a lot of time alone, a lot of time talking to Lily (the cat), and a lot of time reflecting. I have a few (great!) friends here that I've spent the past few weekends catching up with, and it's been wonderful. I spent Memorial Day in Vermont with my family and best friend, Lee Ann. There is nothing like the comfort of family and best friends. I feel like "me" again. Whoever THAT actually is.

In the process of figuring out "me" again... I'm doing for me. I sleep in if I want on the weekends. I go to the beach when I want, do my laundry I want, go to bed early and eat Italian Ice for dinner if I want. (Luigi's Cherry if you must know!)

... and today... I joined a gym. FTP Fitness is it's new name, but I really like it's old name... Face The Pain Fitness.  A husband and wife that I already like run it and own it. It's small, the regulars all know each other. The owners make sure you know what you're doing, they help train you even without personal training sessions. Tomorrow at 7p, I enter "Mr. Pain's World". Billy, the husband, and I, have an appointment to set me up with my beginning circuit training session. I told him not to be too gentle with me, and to kick my ass. I'm doing this for me. I met a girl who's lost 23" since October. Inspiring! I can't wait to be her in 8 months!!!

So here's to a new journey. I don't know where the road leads, where the book ends, or how the chapters get written, but I plan on having a lot of fun along the way.
