emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (mass effect)
 My birthday is in 7 weeks and I am 3 lbs away from hitting the fitness goal I made last July. It's crazy to think that I've been living this new healthier lifestyle for 10 months. I remember how much of a struggle it was early on when I was adjusting to new eating habits and now it's just a way of life and I find food much more fascinating now, which might be funny but learning about serving sizes is enlightening.

Now 4 months of running on a treadmill since one came into my ownership and I've been doing about 40-45 mins of near daily cardio, in that 4 months I've comfortably cut over 4 minutes from my mile pace and I'm almost up to 4 miles a day. I'm so pumped about my progress!

Another animated property that has caught my fancy of late is Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  Between nostalgic love of the original from my childhood, and a slight aversion to the animation style I stayed away from the show for a long while. But last month or so I happened upon a marathon of episodes and left it on in the background and started consuming episodes left and right.

I love that It doesn’t play down to the audience and I like what they’ve done with the characters and the relationships, like turning April into a teen as well as having Donatello crushing on her, Splinter being fatherly to her or the dynamic between Leo & Karai. Unfortunately there have been so many iterations over the years that it’s hard to discover fic on this newest series but I hope to find some fandom developing around the show finally.

 I never know what to post here when I'm too busy to write for fun. I hate just reposting the few blog posts I do on tumblr nowadays but even though I lurk here daily, it's mostly comms these days. I think maybe 5% of my friends are still regularly active on here. It takes me forever to write even the littlest of messages but I will try harder.

That said I noticed I didn't copy over my November fitness update, but it's December, now over 5 months into my being fit goal, lost 7 lbs in the last 5 weeks and am in my best shape in 10 years. And I'm not done and really excited but it does wear on one's patience having such a long term vision.

In more interesting news.. I'm thinking about redoing my 12 Days of ficmas idea that I had thought about last year or the year before but came to my mind too late to start. To those still around, what would be a decent word count for something daily like this? I'm thinking at least 300, I'd love to do more maybe it won't be a fixed number but I want to have a realistic goal that is reachable. Basically a Christmas themed prompt for every story, and i don't know how multi fandom I can be but it would be nice to touch on all the ones I love.  If my counting is right, the first day would be Friday.. I might try to get ahead and set up, but here's hoping for a more active journal!
