I feel sooooo good.

Monday, January 03, 2011

I'm feeling so good right now. Its amazing what just having a few extra days off can do when your normal life is so insane. I have been struggling as my team mates know for the last year trying to find time and the way to balance a healthy life style with my work schedule. I was getting very discouraged and slowly gaining back weight. Over Christmas I had a 4 day break and this weekend I had my sat. and sun. and Monday. Shortly after Christmas I stood on the scale and was horrified to see that I was up 13 pounds from my goal weight. I decided right then...no matter what I was not going to let this contine and my first and only priority at this point is making sure I get the time I need to do what I need to do to live a healthy, happy, and somewhat balanced lifestyle. I like my job, but it is my work, not my whole self.
Anyway, I have been exercising regularly, my fridge is filled to the brim with healthy foods that I have been eating in the right way and I'm already starting to feel so much better. Then to my delight I got weighed today and I had dropped 2 pounds.
Like I said I feel great right now, and feel like I'm actually finding my way. Now tomorrow I'm back to work and it promises to be a very hectic week, but I won't be going to work until my work out is done, even if that means going a bit later than I normally do. I've spent the day cooking and I'm totally prepared with healthy foods for both home and work. I can do this, I refuse to just be a victim of a busy schedule. I deserve the time I need to take care of myself, and with the added energy, confidence, and enthusisam that comes from a healthy lifestyle I"ll be even more effective at work. Why in the world has it taken me this long to figure this out. I think I just got so tired I just couldnt really even see what was happening to me. Just how bad I was slipping back into unhealthy habits and how much it was really affecting me.

Well live and learn right.
