Setbacks

Friday, April 16, 2010

Hey, guys!
Whoooooo .... I am now at the heaviest I have ever been. I don't know if you remember that hip injury I wrote about a while back, but that's still not totally gone. I got the OK to exercise probably 8 months ago, but I still haven't had the heart to go again. Exercise is not on my brain any more and it's back to feeling like an "extra," not a "must-do." I remember when I exercised frequently it just made sense. Now, I can't help but feel like it's a waste of time because I have so much stuff to do. Bad thinking! I need to change my thinking.

It kills me that I was 10lbs away from my goal weight and now I'm 10 lbs heavier than I have ever been. But, I did it once, I can do it again!

In other news, I've been doing an internship at the alumni magazine for the college I'm attending. This is my dream to have a writing job! I haven't enjoyed the internship very much, unfortunately. It was too much work and it was an unpaid position. A few of the people were very unfriendly and I didn't feel like I learned much. But, it was good experience to put on my resume. I'm not sure where I'm going now! The internship ends in about 2 weeks. Where to go from there? I don't know. I need a paying job and I really want one in my field (writing/editing). Something will come through, I just know it!

This is the 965th time I've "restarted" here on SP. Hopefully, this time I will stick with it!

    I have started over and over again as well!

    Don't worry! You sound so resolved to do this! Embrace walking everyday for a couple of miles. Soon the exercise bug will bite and you will want to amp things up!
