i'm just not feeling as strong as i used to, not sure if it's the time frame, if it's this plateau i seem to be stuck on, it sure was a lot easier to lose weight whe i was 300+ pounds than it is now!
but, i was elected to our union's state bargaining team- first chick in history for the state's security public safety team- so it really is an honor- or- i don't think i would have accepted it- we all know there's no state money for raises, so it's going to be a very hard contract! hopefully it means we can get some good language changes
anyways, it starts this week- just 3 days this wk, but 3 days in a hotel, and of course, i'm the only chick-- i know these guys are party'ers- and the nights will be drinking- and eating-- and i'm going to have to set the tone this week for the weeks and months ahead-- of how i am going to live with them, be part of the group- and not blow the new lifestyle!
not looking forward to hotel living-- and the fitness room they have is a joke- 2 bikes.....so that's not going to save me!
hopefully i can find a cheap laptop so i can at least keep up with spark during these nights i'm gone.....
but i'm rather scared about how this is going to go- and how i'll handle it
how can it be 2009 and this group of union guys has finally accepted a chick? and, partly, i am not turning it down cuz there are no up and coming chicks either.....i don't know where they are!! it took a long time of being TENACIOUS and sticking round to finally get respect from all these tough guys.........
will be an interesting week! i better do good!!!!
