I've just felt so BLAH lately.

School has been over for almost two weeks and I should be happy and living it up. I mean I finally finished my Bachelors degree...I'm happy that its over just wasn't anticipating all this extra time I have on my hands.

School consumed me, for the longest time I was only my job, school and homework. Now that school is over I am my job and have way to much time on my hands. All I do is think about how lonely I am.

Earlier this year I had major life changes and I apparently buried my emotions in my homework. In February my mom, who is basically my best friend moved 14 hours away. Sure I cried and I miss her and have even seen her since then but doesn't fix that she's not here to hang out with if I need her to be. The next week I was told my job was being eliminated, I loved everything about that job. It continued till July and I did find another job but its not the same. This new job I feel like an outsider, the owners wont even look at me or say hi unless they need something.

So these are the things I now think about in my extra time instead of doing homework or logging on for class. Everyone says to get a hobby...I have a few I'm just not motivated to do them. I also have projects around the house, major painting projects that I want to start.

Some reason I'm dragging my feet. I think I need a swift kick in the butt to get motivated and end my pity party!


30 year reflection...

Monday, August 09, 2010

It's amazing to me that I have been alive for 30 years already. Time flies and the weight has piled on. I've been doing a lot of thinking this past weekend and turning 30 doesn't seem to bother me. I've always said age is only a number, and I truely believe that. My problem is that I don't like everything about the 30 year old I have become. I put my life on hold it seems and always had excuses to not take care of myself. I question now why I wasn't important enough to focus on my emotional and physical needs. The only thing left to do is focus on me, hold myself accountable and welcome the encouragement from my fellow sparkers. No more excuses its time to make me the woman I want to be and one that likes myself and choices!

Weigh Myself Monday

Monday, July 26, 2010

So last week was truly the beginning since the on again off again relationship with working out I've had and I was very proud of myself. I worked out four times last week, didn't eat out once and ate healthy. Today was Weigh Myself Monday and I was a little sad to see I was only down 1 lb. As I thought about it more I thought hey at least I'm down and pound and not up a pound. Yay I lost a pound!!

    I really and truly admire your attitude! Its awesome that you can look at it that way, because it really is true that every 1 lb does add up. I have a really hard time when i dont see the numbers i want, so I think you're awesome for realizing that any loss is a step in the right direction.

Low-key Weekend

Sunday, July 25, 2010

The weekend seemed to go by smoothly and had really no stress once I got over the fact I had no car and my lawnmower for some reason wouldn't start either. Maybe they both went on strike!

Seeing it was low-key I didn't do much, I cleaned a little and of course did homework. My eating I think was pretty good. As for exercise I think I forgot what that work meant this weekend.

I tried to get my workout buddy to go to the gym Saturday and go for a walk Sunday, but life happens. So I should have taken my dog for a walk I suppose or popped in one of those really really old work out DVD that are collecting dust in my living room.

I've come to understand that I need to be brave enough to go to the gym on my own and not use my workout buddy as a crutch. Just because she can't go exercise doesn't mean I shouldn't.

So I'm on a mission to find an activity that I can do by myself when I feel the need for another round of exercise, so I don't miss a work out. Also our workout routine is changing to evening work outs and I'm not to thrilled but will deal with it.

Have a healthy and happy day!
