Listening to your gut

Saturday, November 20, 2010

I have been thinking more about this water aerobics job. I was talking to my friend Amy about the Pro's and Con's of the job. My gut is telling me not to do it. I am already working enough hrs right now making enough with my other jobs. Honestly I am exhausted working what I already am. I feel like I am kinda getting pushed into something I don't wanna do. All your encouragement here has been really sweet but its kind of confused me even more. It kind of turned into a personal challage. But if the best thing about the job is a free gym membership and the worst is that I will be even more tired then I am not and stressed...ugh! What angers me is that I would have loved this job 6 months ago but now I am in a totally different place mentally. Water aerobics is not something I like doing on a regular basis right now. It actually really bores me and has for the past 4-5 months. All my friends who used to go, don't go anymore. So when I do go its all 50 yr old women who come with their friends and just talk to eachother and its boring. Ugh how did I get to the 3rd interview and why?

    Yes you should totally do what's right for you girlie! Just because all of us on here support doesn't mean you have to do it. No one will think anything if you decide it's not for you. You've got to be happy! Do what works for you and makes you happy! You don't need to be anymore stressed than you are. Besides working at the gym might make you hate it...you know the old idea of when you start doing what you like for a job it no longer becomes fun (not that you love water aerobics but that you like going to the gym is what I mean).
I wish you the best of luck in you decision. You challenge yourself in so many ways...its PERFECTLY OK to SAY NO sometimes. Its hard but in the end you'll be happier and healthier because you'll have less stress.

And you got to the 3rd interview because your awesome!!!!!!! You can always say you had another opportunity come up and you had to take it.

    I was a stay-at-home mom and wanted to make money. Since I had little children, I decided to do limited day-care. I made money but then didn't have the free time to spend it. Decided free time was better than money. U have to decide what U really want.

    I think that you should listen to your gut and give up the job. That doesn't mean that you won't be in a different place later, they may need another instructor or need one for Zumba or something else you enjoy.

I get the feeling that you put so much pressure on yourself to be a weight-loss role model while trying to stay true to yourself, and that must be tough. Remember that your actions alone are what's inspiring and you don't have any reason to try to be everything to everyone.

Have a blessed Sunday!

    It sounds like you will be better off refusing the job. You are busy and if it's something you can do, but don't enjoy it's not going to be fun for the students. The choice is yours to make and you will make the right decision.

  Definetly listen to your gut. If this isn't the right fit for you right now the extra stress isn't worth it. If you don't need the job to live and it will just add extra unwanted stress to your life then gracefully decline. Life is to short. Best of luck with your choice. emoticon

    Then I think you should totally listen to your gut. Just because you would be great at it and inspirational does NOT mean that you should take the job, especially if you don't want it. I think what all of us meant in our encouragement to you was go for it IF you really want it. We were simply trying to say "don't let fear hold you back." Stress is a huge factor in weight loss/management. I definitely vote for less stress, not more.

Juggling as usual

Friday, November 19, 2010

I did manage to get 2 days off this week. But then that means I am working all my hrs in 5 days like normal ppl. I like it but I am tired too. I got thrush right now too. I seem to get it every 1.5 or so yrs. My dad gets it too about that often. Ugh its annoying and makes eating miserable. I have been practicing my water aerobics. I am gonna keep practicing when I can. Hopefully I have lots of time on Sunday. Still no plans for Thanksgiving. I kinda wanna get a toferky and run a Turkey Trot. If we win a turkey we will eat one. If not, toferky it is! My internet job boss has been kinda pissy with me this week cuz I am not working very many hrs. It seems like tho if I am not there to work with him, he does nothing. If I am not around to ship out, he wont ship out by himself at all. Which is annoying cuz he's so worried about his ebay rating, AHHHHH! He told me he was interviewing ppl this week and he didn't. My other boss sprung on me that I need to stay 2 hrs later today. Which i was going straight to Rick's UGH. Well Rick is out of town and I am working at the warehouse alone, which looks like a setting for a Dateline murder. So now I gotta go to the warehouse 2 hrs later then I had planned. I really need to carry a knife with me. I actually woke up early thinking about this. My eating and exercise have been good at least. I am gonna go for a run this morning. Better bundle up, it looks cold as hell out. Oh I also forgot my HRM was on last night when I got back from zumba. My resting HR right now is 43. That's pretty crazy low, I have the HR of an athlete lol

    I'm sorry to hear that you are sick! That is not good!I hope you get better soon! Wow your heart rate is low! Have you checked your Bp out too. I went to the dentist back in Aug. and he was like wow your bp's really low. I guess the more you work out the lower that is too lol. Good luck on your water workouts! You can do it!!! That is scary your boss is sending you to a scary warehouse. Be careful and ya get some mace or something. I guess some ppl carry mace when they run. I need to get some since I run at night mostly. Have a good weekend! Get well soon! good luck on winning a turkey!!!

As for the Thrush? YUCK- I'm prone to it too. Nystatin is my best friend, maybe see if Dr will keep you supplied with it. I prefer the Liquid Version, best thing since sliced Cheese; lol Didn't say Bread? By now U have to know limiting Sugar and Carbs helps to keep that Thrush down & out. B safe, and unless your 'really killer' with that knife? Carry Mace?

Confidence, I am lacking you!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Well today I went for my 2nd step in the water aerobics interview. The boss watched me take the class and made sure I was high enough energy which she said I was. Then she asked me to set up step 3 which is putting together a 20 minute water class for her and Vicki. Ok I have been taking water over a yr and a half. I know the moves. I know the women but I am so scared. I am scared I will forget everything I know. I don't work well in large groups of ppl. I am good one on one with ppl but large groups make me fumble and screw up. I am not a born teacher cuz I hate being infront of ppl being the center of attention. Vicki keeps telling me though that I would be inspirational to the ppl in the pool. I don't take attention well or compliments. I kinda just let things roll off my back half heartedly believe ppl. I am tough on myself and I am my own worst enemy. I know if i could just relax it would be ok. I hope I didn't sound cocky already thinking about my future class when I havent even gotten thru this step. UGHHH I talked to Scott about it tonight and he made me feel better. This should be a piece of cake but my mind is still terrified. I will always be that heavy girl who wants to be invisible. Who hates being seen. Who's confidence needs to be seen with a microscope. I might not come off this way anymore but its how I feel still. I really try to be super friendly at work and outgoing since I lost weight. Seems to me my way of trying to be change it. Since I would rather hide in the past and not be friendly with anyone. Please talk me off my ledge, I need help. Feeling super scared. But I know if you never take risks you will stay in the same location forever wondering, What if??? I really do wanna help ppl and this is my way of helping ppl. I am really good at pushing myself and I need to use that willpower on other ppl and try to help them push themselves. I CAN DO THIS!!! I think I can, I hope I can.....help!

    YOU CAN DO IT!!!! Don't stop believing in yourself!!! You will be so inspirational in the position. Just practice your routine over and over. Do it in front of anyone that you can between now and then and in the mirror. Even if you mess up a little know that it will become so much easier. Standing up in front of people and doing things will get easier the more times you do it. I had to do a test conducting a piece while singing it out loud to myself at the same time in front of 20 people before for a final. That was scary but I just practiced over and over and even though I messed up a little I just took a breath, thought for a moment and got back on. So if you get off just stop, breath deep and focus yourself-try not to get flustered. When you get off or get stuck it seems like an eternity to you but to everyone else it is nothing...they probably won't really notice even. But you won't get stuck! You know this stuff! You've been doing it for a year plus! You totally have this thing girlie!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!! You are awesome, amazing, talented, hard working, motivated, energized, inspiring, WISE, and so much more!!!! Go JULIE!!!!

    Hey girlie, long time no talk. You look absolutely wonderful. You have totally turned yourself around and recreated yourself! Why are you standing on a ledge? So you're out of your comfort zone in front of people...it will pass, I promise you. Just take a deep breath and jump in your routine and the nerves will pass in 5 minutes or less. After a couple of classes it will become routine and you'll laugh about putting yourself through the wringer. Building confidence takes practice and I know you have what it takes to succeed. Heck, look how far you've already come!

Someone else mentioned writing out a script, which is a good idea. You can also rehearse scenarios in your head...like a dress rehearsal. Then whenever you're in that situation it will feel more comfortable and familiar.

I'm extremely proud of you for putting yourself outside of your comfort zone and trying something new and challenging! I hate to be the one to break this to you...if that isn't confidence, I don't know what is! You can do this Julie. If you don't believe that, turn around and look how far you've already come!

    Have you ever noticed how many people comment on your blog every time you blog? You are already inspiring people. You are awesome. I'm seriously going to kick your butt if you don't start being nice to my friend! :)

I would totally take any class you were teaching, because you have accomplished so much. People (especially heavy people) feel more comfortable with those that can relate to them. I know I would feel better taking a class from someone who did it at my same weight, versus someone who is stick thin and has been their entire life.

DO IT! YOU CAN DO IT!

    Let me tell you a little bit about our water aerobics instructor: she is tiny, probably not even five feet tall but it would be difficult to measure anyways since she has a serious spinal malformation and is very hunched-back, she is about seventy, she has quite an accent (German I assume), and messes up her counting all the time. All the women in the pool love her. She's a hoot and is very engaging. Her smile and cackle of laughter light up the pool. It doesn't really matter what you look like or even how good a shape you are in. What matters is that you have a relatively loud voice, can explain what you want people to do when they can't see all your body parts under the water and are willing to laugh with the rest of us when you accidentally dunk your head under the water and come up spluttering.

You'll be fine! You have a smile that will light up the pool as well and that's probably your best skill to score this job.

Good luck!

    I think this challenge is EXACTLY what you need right now! You've come so far but you've mentioned it on quite a few occasions that you're head hasn't quite caught up with your body. Well you've got this great new body and it's time to get a new mindset to go with it. Just have fun with it - if you mess up, laugh and keep going. No one's perfect and I'm sure they're going to be very interested to see how you handle stumbles - can you laugh it off and continue or do you get flustered? Because that'll certainly impact the people in your class and YOU being able to laugh and have fun is going to make it that much easier for THEM to do the same. Best of luck!!

    As a veteran of a lot of work speeches and presentations, there are any number of things you can do. The first is practice, practice, practice. At first, it feels really stupid talking aloud in your living room, but that is how you get the words implanted in your brain - by saying them over and over again.

Another is visualization. As you practice and as you do other things that don't require total mental energy, visual that you are leading the class. Literally give the class in your head. This gets the flow of the activities set in your brain.

Think positively. The people taking the class are looking to you. Be that person. Act as a leader.

You can do all these things and you can lead that class. You have done so well, you can be an inspiration to the class.

My very first 5k!

Sunday, November 14, 2010

I kicked it's butt!!!! I didn't think I was going to be able to run the 5k today since I had to work. But since I quit my job and the shelver was taking over. I was able to sign up at the last minute. It was so fun, Scott's mom came and his friend from hs we went to see Dean Karnazes with. This kid is speedy! He has gotten 3rd place in half marathons. He had an injury recently and his doctors took a nerve out of his foot. Which seemed to make running even harder. But he wanted to try running this and he was faster then Scott. Him and Scott ran their 5k's in 19 minutes. Scott was 30 seconds behind Andy.

I very loosely trained for this. For the past week and a half I have been running smaller amounts and upping my time. But I was not getting anything under 10 minutes a mile. I GOT 9:32 PACE WOOT WOOT!!! Take that gym teachers from HS who hated me and thought i was a slacker. I ran my whole 5k in 30:23.

Here are my pics from the race. Andy's dad took photos for me.
Us with Scott's HS track friends


Me with my Pilates teacher Cheryl, she ran with a stroller. She was so sweet, she told me she was honored to be in a photo with me and was telling her daughter how much weight I have lost.

Andy Running at the end

Scott running at the end

Me running and I am smiling lol Which is funny because my dad talks about how running is not enjoyable and he never sees anyone smiling while they run. Well there ya go! lol

At the end so happy to be done with Scott and his mom

Trying to keep warm waiting for race food

Friday, November 12, 2010

After writing that blog, I knew that I needed to go quit my Sunday job. All day I was dreading it. But I went and told my boss that I needed to put in 2 weeks or 4 weeks whatever he needed. He was very laid back and fine with it. He even went up to his new Shelver and asked if she would watch the shop on my day and she said yes. I asked her starting when and she said this Sunday was fine. Yayyyyy it went sooooo smooth. I told him about the health food store giving me new hrs. He said that my boss there really likes me "Julie is always doing stuff!" so thats why she upped my hrs lol I already told my coworker i would take Saturday if she took Monday. Now I have Sunday and Monday off AHHHHHHH I am so happy. Only working 30 hrs next week but that is totally fine! Gives me time to recouperate. Now I have Sunday off so I can take my fitness training class when I find one. I can work longer hrs too at the online job if I need to. Since I am not spreading myself so thin now. Oh and I took a day off working out today. Huge sigh of relief. I came home earlier jumping up and down haha I am going out to a movie with my hunny. Going to enjoy this Friday night we have together, yay!

    Awesome!!! I'm so glad you are feeling better about your job situation and that it went so smoothly with your boss. Sigh of relief!!!That is wonderful the health food store upped your hours too! I'm so happy for you. You work so hard and you totally deserve a day off so I'm glad you were able to get one and spend some time with your man :-)! That's funny though...the health food store boss talked to the book store boss and she gave you a glowing review?! That is awesome!!! You are a hard worker and it's sad you were not appreciated at that other place. Congrats on ending that!!! (I hope I'm talking about the right places...if not ignore all that lol).
