Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Don’t call me Lance just yet.

Graduation weekend was a true treat. My family was in town and we had some great meals, laughs, and time well spent. The ceremony was pretty boring so I after crossing the stage and getting my diploma, I scrammed to the exit and got out of there early. Probably not the best etiquette but hey, it’s my graduation I’ll do what I want.

I love making my dad proud.

Mom came to Boston for the first time! I almost died when I saw her in the audience.

Along with my diploma, I received some incredible gifts……

Beautiful flowers sent to me by my sissy

Garmin from my dad and rob

self-help book from pops. this girl needs all the help she can get

And last but not least, the best gift of all from my hunny……..drum roll please….

A CUSTOM MADE MOUNTAIN BIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been talking about a bike for YEARS now but never did I dream of one specially made for me. This bike is so cool because it can be switched into a road bike too. I tested out my bike after a night out with several glasses of wine and boy was that fun. I sailed down hills with my hair blowing and jumped off curbs effortlessly. I think I’m a natural. Β Don’t worry, only once did I almost ride into moving car. No big deal since I got a matching helmet!

don't be jealous.

Not sure when I’ll venture out to the streets of Boston during the day time. Its dangerous out there with the many cars, buses, people, etc. When I’m driving, much of my road rage is geared at bikers because they hold things up and I’m terrified of hitting them. I’m amazed that bikers can weave in and out of cars so effortlessly without getting hit, bumped, or ran over. Scary! Yeah, I don’t trust myself. Not yet anyway. Either way, Len and I plan to take our bikes to the trails when we hike in NH and Vermont and ride along the Charles.

Thank you babe. I’m so lucky to have a boyfriend who loves me so much and I’m excited to have another activity to do together.

My mom and her friend are here for the day so we’re going to explore Boston a little and then hit up Target. Priorities, people.

  14. Congrats on graduating! It’s the best feeling to feel so accomplished! That book “how full is your bucket” is actually part of a behavioral program in schools (im obviously an education major haha) It’s really interesting but I’m not sure if that book is the same layout or not. Also, awesome bike! Last time I rode a bike I left it out front like little kids do and it got stolen 😦 It’s nice that even with your parents going through a divorce they both came to your was like pulling teeth to get both of mine to go! anyway CONGRATS AND LIVE IT UP!

    • Hey Jamie, the plan was that my parents wouldn’t even see each other and would each get one night at my place. believe me, it wouldn’t have been pretty had they bumped into one another. Some day…..
