I haven't been around at all the last 6 weeks or so.
I have so busy with work and such. I really don't even time to jump on while at work. I've been commuting to center city to work every day, which is a longer commute from my old office. My supervisors were nice enough to adjust my schedule so I can still work at my part time job at the library and that way I can take the train. (There's no parking in the lot of our building for me and it's cheaper to take the train.)
So, my new hours are 7:30 to 3:30. Every morning, I am now up at 4:30 to get in the shower before my husband, who needs to be in the shower at 4:50 and I am out of the house by 5:50 a.m. Monday, Thursday, and Friday nights, I am leave the office at 3:30 and I am home at 5:30. By the time I cook and clean up dinner, get my lunch ready and do one "chore" (to avoid doing it on my only day off), It's 9:00. On the nights I am at the library, I am off the train at 4:45, work at 5 and home by 10 PM.
So, I am looking at how to get all the things I want to get done done. I am trying to work in a walk 3 times a week and maybe a video 2 times a week. I am going to go back to paper tracking for now, since I can't really use the computer at work for personal stuff.
Slow process, but I'll get it done :)
I have been trying to be good with eating, but I plan on getting back on track with tracking what I eat.
How's everyone been?

Ok, I need to post this . . . my apologies to my Chester Count friends for repeating it. I need to get it off my chest!!!
I'm sooo stressed. Actually, I'm annoyed - but I was angry!
I was 15 minutes late to work today due to the weather and traffic. Well, the boss called my cell phone when I was 5 minutes from work. I didn't answer b/c I was that close to work and I don't like to talk on the phone when I'm driving. My boss called back at the office a minute or so after I got there (he wasn't there, obviously,) and was wondering why no one was there at 8:30 to answer the phones and I why I didn't answer my cell. Well, I guess he didn't like my calm answer of getting stuck in traffic and I didn't answer the cell b/c I don't like to use it when driving and keep it turned off, plus of a strict cell phone budget. He started harping on unlimited cell phone plans and why don't I use my cell phone. When I told him I wasn't discussing my cell phone plan or my financials with him and asked him "what's up?" (as in "how can I help you?"), he wanted to know why I had an attitude. I explained that I didn't have an attitude with him. I was running late due to the traffic/weather, wasn't sure if I had my phone on me, and was not going to discuss my finances/cell phone plans with him, thanks for the advice. Surely, he needed help with something urgently since he called the office and my cell. He just mentioned that someone should be there at 8:30. urggg. I am always on time. WTH?????
I don't think he's going to be in today, which is a good thing. But, I am always prompt, on time and pleasant. Just because I disagree with you, doesn't mean I have an attitude.
so, thanks for letting me vent. I needed to get this off my chest, so I don't go and eat my stress away.

Ok, today's Daily Reflection could not come at a better time. It's really making me think. It talks about how the need to weather hard times is constantly part of our lives and do we ever think of these hurdles in a positive light? I try, but I think my optimism is running low. I don't know what it is, but work is stressing me out, finances is stressing me out and I am struggling with the smallest of weight loss habits I thought I conquered. I've been in worse situations and I'm trying to be proactive in finding a better a paying job and remembering that what doesn't kill me makes me stronger.
Thanks for letting me remind myself that I can do this!

Trying to form good habits this year. I got away from tracking, drinking my water, and I really want to start working out again. I'm starting off slow, but plan on tracking my food and water on a daily basis. Now that this week will have me back on a normal work schedule, I plan on start doing a walking video a couple of times a week.

I've kinda started this blog in a sparkmail to one of my sparkbuddies, so I hope she understands if I'm repeating myself. I just need to vent.
I'm tired and frustrated. I really need to whine.
I started this job back in October. I have been questioning my decision to move over to the new job for a while now.
I guess my problem is that I need to learn how to stand up for myself. I can not let this job, or more specifically, this boss, make me feel bad about myself. I take everything personally. I'm the first to admit it. But, when I hear others making comments to me about this boss being a "jackass" or "the devil", I know it is not me. (And no, I do not express my feelings about my boss to others. They volunteer their opinions to me.)
I'm struggling with feelings about this job . . .it's making me feel bad and I'm so trying to stay away from my old comforts (eating junk, vegging out) and going for good things to feel better. Venting is one of them (thanks for listening!) I'm starting to make a work out routine to help too. That is, if I don't have to work late, unpaid, that is.
I feel like I need to stand up to my boss and tell him to stop being so mean and degrading (okay, I sound like a 10 year old, but that's what he is~he had my coworker in tears yesterday!)
But, I don't want to lose my job either. I'm never good at standing up for myself. It's one of the reasons the why I weigh so much. I've eaten so much to make myself feel better, but wound up abusing my body.
How do I stop feeling this way? How do I stand up for myself????? How do I not go home and cry and eat and taking it out on my dh?
I think to myself that I didn't go to school for this. I think I have to go back to school and get my masters.
Okay, now I am rambling. Thanks for listening and letting me get a bit of this off my chest. I know that here, no one knows my boss or will rat me out, lol.
Well, back to the job I really do like!
