Review of Summer and on to Fall

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

So I haven't blogged here for a while. Had a busy Summer, took an accounting course and also tried to enjoy the good weather of Summer. I managed to take in some great festivals as well. The only thing that didn't happen as often as I would have liked upon reflection of course are my workouts. Kinda fell between my test prep freakouts and festival roaming to relax from the stress of my I have to laugh at it cause in the end I passed the course, gained the credit and new skills so seeing my freakouts in hindsight were just silly. Back on the fitness thinking and the FALL approaching. I know that I need to use the rest of this month to get myself organized and re-committed to me and my fitness goals. The Summer was great but on top of classes I had to help plan a Bachelorette party (my first) and that had way more headaches involved than I could ever imagine. And at the same time start prepping for tests/exams and a Baby Shower! Still have a couple of weeks to go before the baby shower happens for my friend, but we as the planning people are trying to get most of the stuff done and out of the way...then there's a wedding in mid October, Thanksgiving and well I think finally I should be free just before Halloween and Christmas rush. I do realize now after Summer's lack of effort that I can't just wait until all that stuff takes place first before I am able to act. I NEED balance! Which is why I am giving myself to the end of this month to come up with my new workout routine . I better go and get started on that then...


Looking forward to March

Monday, February 28, 2011

As this month ends and another begins I am looking forward to revving up my motivation and getting back on the horse so to speak. I've been busy not getting all my workouts done some at least but still not all. I'm trying to work on finishing up this pre req math course in order to take an accounting course this Summer. And I know that I have just been focused on that. I know I can do better and this is the time to get a new routine started and figured out.

    It's hard when other things get piled onto your plate, but you are getting refocused and that's what counts.

You'll be back in the swing of things in no time. emoticon

post -Interview

Thursday, November 25, 2010

So I finally did it. I finally did an interview where I did not leave feeling down, depressed, or sad. For most of my interviews I always feel so down afterwards. But today I had one and I was nervous at first but as the questions came and I knew the answers well and I felt I answered them to the best of my ability. I realized after leaving that I actually feel ok. I feel fine. I mean I won't know the decision either way until next week but I actually feel great about it. I feel that whether I get it or not that I represented myself truly and that if I don't get it then I wasn't going to be a good fit in and that's fine too. Finally I did the correct prep and answered it as best as I could and do not regret any of my answers. Whereas usually as soon as I leave the space I start re thinking my answers and start regretting some of my responses.

Lol an added bonus one of the people on the panel had the exact same degree that I have and went to the same university as me..just years earlier and well that was nice that they noticed that fact on my resume.

Oh yea to my American Friends and teammates....Happy Thanksgiving!

Postive thinking and positive actions

Monday, September 13, 2010

It's a brand new week. I'm feeling pumped about it. The drama from my previous few weeks seems to be ending. I just want to start my week on a positive note. Getting back to the basics, recording my food intake, drinking my 8 glasses minimum. If I don't start going to the gym again by the end of the week at least recording my food each day and drinking my 8 glasses will put me in a better head space. Which I definitely need!

    I like your statement "positive thinking and positive actions". I think lots of us could use this. I know I could. Thanks for sharing and motivating the rest of us.

August was kinda rough looking forward to changes in September.

Thursday, September 09, 2010

The past month was a real up and down one for me. In the beginning I was doing really well..then I got myself a toe infection..yuck!! Which even to this day I am still getting over....I got it drained and all and well it was so hard to walk /stand still or anything with my right foot. I let my exercise slide..just losing motivation and really trying to concentrate on getting better. It's still not 100% but I am so reluctant to start working out at the gym again (which I love doing by the way). Working out at home is very difficult for me, for some reason I have it in my mind that home is my relaxation place and therefore if I do attempt workout it doesn't last very long or I do not continue with it..whereas the gym I can go 5 or 6 days a week no problem! In that time while not working out ..met someone new, that did not work out as I ended it the other day. And I realized that had I been working out like usual my concentration and thinking would have been on point.

The warning signs would have revealed themselves to me sooner. When I work out at the gym on my own I'm get in a working zone and usually by the end of my workout whatever was bothering me before would have worked itself out. I have realized this very important fact about myself over the last month of me not being able to get to a gym and do a proper workout.

And as my toe is on the mend I have started thinking about exercises to going back to spin class I really enjoyed it and I'm not standing as much either. Just had to get these thoughts out of my head.

    I am sure t6hat now you have blogged your thoughts you will be able to get moving again. Toe permitting. I also have had a toe problem. I damaged the nail a few months back and it did not heal. It actually has come half off today. I dont know how I will be able to wear proper shoes.
