06 October 2014

I went to the doc on Friday and found out I have ear infection, so I'm glad I went. Hopefully the week long course of antibiotics will kick this bug out once and for all. If not, I'm heading straight to the ear, nose, and throat doctor instead of my regular doctor. I still get pretty tired once I'm up and going for a bit, but I'm feeling better.

I've been eating horribly, so this week I really need to work on it. I keep saying that I need to eat better, so now's the time for action. My hubby has been on a good healthy eating kick, so that should help me too. I know if I eat better it will help me feel better, so that should be all the motivation I need, but for some reason I forget that and go for the chocolate, or other junk.

Exercise has been nonexistent too. Today I'm going to try to do a short workout or walk after work. This week will be a more normal week, so I'm going to try for at least 3 days of exercise after work. It's so easy to get out of the routine, and so hard to get back into it. I know my body image is so much better when I'm exercising, even if I'm not losing, so that should be motivation enough.

Here's to starting a new week with a good attitude and a renewed motivation! I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

It's been over a week since I last journaled!! For shame! I was so busy last week with training a new person and with the kids activities that I just didn't feel like I had an extra minute. Yesterday I was out sick and I just felt off, and still feel weird today. My stomach has been crampy for about a month and I think after a week of training and eating lunch out all week my stomach is rebelling. I'm going to try to do things healthy this week and see if that helps. I am going to try to get back into some exercise too as I have time. My stomach sometimes cramps so bad when I do things, even moving to sit down, so I haven't braved exercise for a week or so. I'm getting my eating back on track first, then the exercise.

I haven't heard anything on the other job yet, but have a feeling they would have called already if they were going to offer it to me, so I'm waiting for that letter thanking me for applying, but they offered the job to someone else. I'm not sad over it though because I enjoy my job, and I just think it wasn't meant to be. Oh well, life goes on.

I hope everyone is having a great day!!

Today's the day of my interview. I'm getting nervous as it gets closer. I should have chosen a morning time, then I'd be done already, but I was thinking then I could have a short day instead. Silly me. I talked to my supervisor and he's supporting me in whatever I choose to do, which is nice. He understands the pay issue and if he could give me a raise I know he would. It will make that blow if I don't get the job so much easier to take knowing I have a great place to work already.

This morning I made myself a "green" smoothie, but it was more like a brown smoothie. Other than the repulsive color it was good. I think I need to add more spinach and kale and less berries to make it really green, not to mention I need a blender that can really liquify everything. I just have a single cup blender and it's on it's last leg I think. I'm going to keep trying to incorporate the smoothies though because they are such an easy way to get some fruits and veggies in. I'll have to find some other fruits and veggies to add too.

Exercise wise, I haven't done anything in like 2 weeks. We've been so busy after I get off work, that I just haven't had time or energy. This week will be a little better, so I should be able to get a workout in after work at least a few days. Something short is better than nothing, so I'm going to try to get going again and I need to restart my running program.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!

TGIF! I can't even say it enough, I'm going to be glad when this day is over. Not that I'll get much relief, I'll still be busy, but tomorrow if I need to take a nap I can! :)

I'm going in to talk to my boss today about my interview on Monday. He's been out of the office since I found out about the interview. Well, he was in for a bit yesterday, but I was super busy so I just didn't have time. I made an appointment with him today so I make sure to talk to him. He's going to be sad, so I'm not looking forward to it, but I know he'll understand. I think some of the stress of the interview will be off my shoulders once he knows. After I talk to him I'm going to talk to my co-workers about it. I didn't want to tell them until my boss knows because I don't want him to hear about anything second hand and I know the word would spread quickly. I'm nervous for the interview Monday, but ready to just get it done.

I'm going to try to go for a run on Sunday or at least a long walk. I need it and I know I'll feel good if I push myself a little. Next week will be super busy Monday, and at work, but other than that I should be able to get exercise done in the evenings and that will be nice. I don't think I'm nearly as stressed when I get my workouts in. I'm also in a challenge to eat healthier and less processed foods, so let's see if I can make that happen too!

Have a great Friday and a great weekend!! :)

17 September 2014

Well my eating yesterday did not go as planned, I pretty much just snacked here and there until dinner, so I don't even know how to record it, but I'm sure I was over my RDI. Tonight after working late I'm going to go help my mom clean her house to get ready to put it on the market and help her get some garage sale stuff ready. That will be my activity for the day, and if the house looks like how we left it after the move there is a lot to do and I'll be plenty active. :)

I have an interview on Monday for the other job and I'm telling myself what's meant to be will be. I will make the decision if I get offered the job and I can't feel guilty if I do get it. I have at least 30 years of working ahead of me, so if I have an opportunity to get a higher paying job with more possibility for advancement I'd be silly not to take it. Yes, I am still justifying the new job to myself.

I hope everyone has a great day!!
