I am still on my blog hiatus, but thought I would write a post while trying to figure things out. I miss blogging, I miss my blogging friends, but really don't find myself fashionable at the moment. As I mentioned in my last post, I love my job but it really isn't fashionable. I try to wear stylish looks but they really aren't blog worthy. So how can I write a fashion blog when I am not setting any fashion trends? I really can't. I want keep my blog real but don't think I want to go that real with my outfit selections, because lets face it I wear black tennis shoes sometimes to work.
If you have been following me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you know that I am now doing my #stayfit2013 routine. 2012 was all about getting fit and I actually achieved my goal. I lost 62 pounds and feel very fit but now I am trying to stay fit.
Here are my pictures from New Year's Eve 2011 and New Year's Eve 2012. With my #stayfit2013 I have signed up for a running group and plan to run my first half marathon in April. I have been thinking that since I am no longer being fashionable I may change my blog to Fitness By Alicia. I thought I could provide my exercise routines, healthy recipes, and even workout gear reviews and selections. I do not know everything about getting fit but I do know I have seen results. So my question is, would you read my fitness blog? I figure I will write 2-3 times a week. Give me your thoughts so I can decide if it would be worth it.

Hi Everyone! It has been months since I lasted posted on Fashion By Alicia. I definitely miss you all and appreciate the messages wondering where I have been.
I thought it would be best to kind of fill you in on what is going on with my life.
As most of you know, I started my new job in June and things became kind of hectic. I work at job where I am not allowed a cell phone during the day and have very little internet access. This led to me coming home to hundreds of emails and feeling completely overwhelmed. On top of that, my work attire is not really blog worthy. I where flats every day. Some people commented that they were sure I could where heels, but I really can't. I walk a lot at my job and need to be able to run if there is an emergency. I can't really go much into details about what my job entails, but let's just say it is not fashionable at all. But I do enjoy it. Actually I love it! Every day is entertaining and different.
In August, I spent three weeks in Glynco, Georgia for training which consisted of a pretty ugly uniform. If you follow me on instagram or twitter I am sure you saw it! I had to complete a physical ability test, self defense, firearm, and academic training. I completed the training and ended up with Excellence in Academic Performance. Needless to say, August was not a fashionable month. Since I have returned from Georgia, I have stayed busy with work and honestly haven't missed the blog.
I started the blog as a way to entertain myself while I was unemployed. I always said that once it became too much work and no longer fun I would give it up. That is how it feels right now. I definitely do not know how the bloggers with full time jobs do it! I am totally impressed.
So as of right now, I am taking a break from blogging. I would love to come back and I may some day but for now I like my evenings spending time with J and Sophie.
I am still training for my half marathon and still going strong with my #getfit2012 regimen. After coming back from my training, I decided to lose another 5 pounds to be exactly where I want to be. I have lost 47 pounds and am 1 pound away from that goal. I am the smallest I have been in years and am wearing size sixes which makes me really happy! I think 2012 has definitely been about getting fit.
I miss my readers and hope that you forgive me for taking a break! I am hoping to start reading blogs again soon so I can catch up on everyone's lives. Hope you all are well!!
