so I was so all over the place on my last posting that I didn't write about all the craziness lately.
First, I got laid off. Essentially my last day of employment would have been April 2nd. I had a lot of use it or lose it vacation and sick so I used it. I was officially "on vacation" starting the 15th of March. I have worked for my company for 5 yrs and love my job but contracted work is like that and you know the risks. I could have stayed within the company but I would have been doing stuff that I have no interest in doing. I got extremely lucky- before I had a chance to be unemployeed I found another job and started on the 15 of March. LOL- doing basically the same work, and for a great company and actually in the same location since I'm contracted to work for the same company I was already working for. It's like a weird love triangle unless you understand how this stuff works.
My good friend also got liad of as well however and this has left me with a huge void. She has left the state to be with her grandbabies and kids and this leaves me without my "partner in crime". Very tramatic given everything else that has happened this month. Either way I figured that this would be a good chance for me to get my butt to the gym and start working out. And we have a habit of eating badly together so well maybe if I try to put a good spin on it everything will be ok? Not that it's her fault I eat crappy however taking away my buddy kind of does change things a bit.
So to compensate for my very dear friend departing I've tried to focus hard core on my eating and exercise. As of today I've managed to get 30 minute of cardio in M-Th and I will work out tomorrow after working at the gym. I've also been able to get my beloved sauna in too those days. Except for yesterday, I stoke to my 8 week diet plan that I developed and I'm not going to sweat yesterday since I was able to bounce back today.
Life is indeed good and if it wasn't I'd just pretend it was anyway- :)
