big ol' sigh

Monday, November 11, 2013

Well I'm at a plateau. And that isn't a bad thing. The bad thing is that I'm sure the numbers on the scale are going to start inching up.

My eating is out of control. I'm totally off track and I cannot find the motivation to get back on the right track. I'm on the see-food diet, I see food, I eat it. Doesn't matter what it is.

I know what started this, the event/circumstances, that I faced. I started emotional eating, and got an i don't give a crap attitude about life, and there it went. All my work, all my good habits, all my motivation just went out the window. And I haven't found them again yet.

Doing a lot of thinking, but not doing much "doing". That is not a good situation to find myself in, but it is where I am at.

*hoping to find my motivation soon* I don't want to undo how far i've come.

    You can get it back- you're already recognizing that you need to start making a plan to correct this, what a great first step! I know you can get back to up to speed. Just take it one day, one decision at a time, and it'll be like this break never even happened!

the job workout

Friday, July 19, 2013

Today I started a new job, in retail. My job isn't a great one, in fact it is grunt work really. Very physical. I'm not used to PHYSICAL. I'm used to sitting on my behind day in and day out...or being able to sit down when needed.

Today was a 4 hour workout for me.

My body is screaming in protest. My thigh, arm, and back muscles are so sore. Worse, my knees are very swollen from being down on my knees a lot. I have the weekend off, thankfully, I get to recover from today. I go back Monday..and will be doing the same job over again. I will get used to this major increase in activity. My muscles will become accustomed to doing the things required of them for me to be successful. It will be progress, daily.

The people I am working with are great, and mentally I am in a good place today. Again, progress :)

Thanks for reading.
