16 September 2014

I'm here today and I'm going to try to stay positive and keep my eating under control this week because I don't forsee a whole lot of exercise in my future (at least this week). We've got games, practices, I'm helping my mom clean her old house up and get things ready for her garage sale, I have to work late a couple of nights, homework with the kids, and just everything that a parent deals with on a daily basis. Everyone knows because you all have busy lives too. :) This week just seems busier than most, but it's one week and I'll get through it. It does make me feel good though that I'll be able to help my mom, because not only does she need help because my dad won't do it, but I'm sure she needs someone to talk to about some of the issues they've been having with the move and sometimes just getting it out helps your sanity. That's why I journal here. :)

I took the test for the other job yesterday and it wasn't what I was expecting. It was one of those that in the beginning they tell you that there are no trick questions, but then you start the test and they all seem to be trick questions or just hard to answer anyway. I have no clue how I did, but I figure if I don't pass or don't get an interview based on that, then it wasn't meant to be anyway. I like my job so I'm not too worried if I don't get the other one.

I suppose I'd better get to work. I hope everyone has a great day!!

11 September 2014

Another cold, gloomy, rainy day here. Great day to stay inside! I'm going to try to do an indoor workout today, but that will be after my daughter's game, so hopefully I can keep myself going until then.

Eating-wise I just hope the gloom doesn't bring me down like yesterday and feeling like I need to drown my sorrows in donuts and candy. Ugh. I am not feeling the best, it's my sinuses as usual, so I'm going to keep taking my meds and hopefully I'll be able to get through the next couple of days. I'm just so tired and it's dragging me down, especially by the evening.

Monday is the test for the next step in the application process for the new job, so I'm anxious to get that done and hoping I'm not sick during it. I have had such a hard time this week thinking about leaving. Is the money worth it? When I'll be making more money, it probably is, and not only more starting, more in the long run. I'd miss the people here, but having room to advance is a hard opportunity to pass up. I guess just putting it down here helps me work through it a little bit. Change is always scary, but not always bad, so I just need to do what's best for me and my family. And if I don't get the job, then at least I know I'm happy where I'm at. :)

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

09 September 2014

It's a rainy day here today. That means no run this morning, and we'll see about this afternoon. If it's not pouring I'll still try to get my run in because temperature wise it's not bad. If I can't run I've got DVD's. These are the days I wish I had a treadmill, even though I hate them.

My daughter found out yesterday at practice that she has a game tonight, so I'm going to try to make it. She also will play in a game on Wednesday and Thursday, so I'm going to try to make it to the Thursday game also. I'm glad if I get the new job that I won't start there until probably next month sometime because the kids activities will be over for the most part until December and January, and those should be things that will be in the evenings. That is one thing about my current job, the pay may be less, but you can't beat the flexibility, that's what makes it such a hard decision to leave. Sigh.

I'm going to try to stay positive today even though the weather is gloomy here. Have a great Tuesday!!

08 September 2014

Well it was a busy weekend and it's going to be a busy week, really a busy month. We moved my parents on Saturday and that was an all day ordeal. They were not ready at all, other than having the truck rented. It was just ridiculous and my dad was acting like my 12 year old daughter. At one point he had to leave because he was getting so frustrated, which was probably a good thing. My dad is just a my way or the highway person and when there are other adults moving your stuff, they're not all going to think the same way as you. Oh the frustration! And then when he yells at my mom, it makes us kids and the grandkids upset, because this is why they had gotten divorced in the first place and why I had reservations about them getting re-married. Sigh, parents.

In other news, I have a test for a new job next week. I don't have the job, but it's a step in the process. If I pass I'll get an interview. I'm scared about the prospect of a new job, but excited too. It would pay more and have more room for advancement than my job now. I would be sad to leave my job now though. I'm a little stressed about it because I need to talk to my supervisor today about it. I feel like I'm sneaking around for this job, and I think once I tell him I'll feel better, but he'll be sad, so that will make me feel bad. I don't have the job yet, so I'll just cross that bridge if/when I get there.

I've been getting exercise in, eating okay, and trying to stay positive, so things are going well. I'm going to stick with getting exercise in when I can. Today I have to pick my daughter up from volleyball practice, so I have about 15-20 mins and I'm going to go for a walk while I'm waiting. I can get at least a mile in, then I'll do the other .5 miles this evening after dinner with my dog if I can't get it done during practice. It's going to be cooler and rainy this week, so hopefully that doesn't keep me from getting my running and walking done.

Okay enough from me today, this has gone on too long. :) Have a great Monday!!

05 September 2014

Well I'm up about 1.5 lbs, but it's to be expected and I haven't weighed in for almost 2 months. But, I'm working on it and I'm not up as high as I thought I would be. I'm going to try to be positive and keep moving forward.

Yesterday we took one of the office ladies out for lunch because it's her 60th Birthday Saturday. We ended up at Panda Express and they had none of the lower calorie items available, so I got regular stuff, but only ate about half. Then she brought in a cake and gave everyone a piece and it was delicious and I enjoyed it, and thankfully I didn't snack a lot yesterday. I should do okay today, better than yesterday with fast food and cake at least. :)

I got a workout in last night, and I'm glad I did it. I actually did it after dinner because it was a strength workout, so not a lot of jumping around or running, and I did fine (I hate working out after I eat). Today is a walk, so I'm going to try to get that done while I'm waiting for my daughter to get done with practice. Then the kids and I are going to help my mom pack, so that could burn a few calories. We're helping them move a bunch of stuff to the new house tomorrow, so the run I was planning on may be moved to Sunday.

All in all, I feel like I'm starting to get back on the right track. I'm feeling motivated to exercise and trying to make better food choices. Little by little I'll get there, but it's hard and it will take time.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!
