This month has had it's ups and downs. I started the couch to 5k program on January 4 and 4 weeks later I am getting around to day 1 week 3 of the program. But I am still doing it and I signed up and paid for a 5K yesterday -- I will be running it on March 20. I better keep my schedule or I won't be ready.
I have eaten out an immense amount this month...my addiction to groupon www.groupon.com/r/uu1316
and living social https://livingsocial.com
saves me a ton of money on eating out but sometimes if I don't plan it right, I end up going out to eat 6 days out of 7 like the beginning of this month. Follow that up with a weekend of union business that includes meals (served buffet style) and I am up to my highest weight ever.
I had some disappointing news when some one convinced me to be more persistent in following up on old career dreams and then to suffer rejection again. I am not good with rejection. Not to mention on the same day, I got some disappointing medical news. I had my suspicions that it was a possibility but the actual news from the doctors office hit like a ton of bricks.
I am trying to find a font of positive self talk and motivation. I can do this -- we might be starting a WW at work session which words way better for me than the regular meetings which I have a hard time fitting in my schedule. It worked for me before and kept me motivated and accountable. I keep wondering if I should pay for more training but it is so expensive, and they don't have that many good times open at my center either. Maybe pick up a couple of sessions at the Y? I don't know, I imagine life will just get too busy again but I will find a way to make this work. I am going to come up with some goals for February and post them sometime over the next couple of days.
