Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

While motivation in some parts of my life has been strong (starting school and fitness goals), other areas (ie. my blog) not so much.  It was my intention so many times to give you an update of whats going on in the world of the Clothed Commuter but the intentions never seemed to grow into anything more than that.  Here is a super quick recap:

September: Got ready for Europe Trip, and left for Europe Trip
October: Returned home from trip.Started a fitness/weightloss challenge and committed to improving my health. Started seriously researching cosmetology or esthetics as a career change.
November: Continued my work out regime and tried to eat as clean as possible during Thanksgiving. Decided to start school to become an esthetician with the help and encouragement from friends and family - started school on November 29.
December: Got a bit of a sinus thing which really slowed down my work outs but I managed to lose 10 lbs during between October 15-Deceber 15!  Continued with school. Got to enjoy some quality time with lil sis Mimi.

I'm excited to be commuting again!  Even if I'm not commuting to work, I'm commuting to school and lacing up my sneaks to commute around the neighborhood regularly.  I'm hoping to start documenting outfits again but I have to warn you: there may only be two per week.  At school, the dress code is black from the waist down and a black or white top.  This doesn't leave a whole lot of room for creativity.  You may have to deal with photos like the one below once in a while too! 

Since New Year's is a time for resolutions I guess I'm going to resolve to pay more attention to my blog.  I love it, I learn a lot from it, and I've even heard that I occasionally amuse one or two of you!  I'm also resolving to keep the fitness routine going.  It is much harder now that I'm back in school but I feel so much better now that I'm taking care of myself and I can't let that fall to the wayside!

I hope you are all enjoying your holiday season.  Hug the ones you love, enjoys a day off here and there, and treat yourself to a yummy holiday treat - but don't go overboard :o)
