(This might be long)
I'm back. Well I am as much as I can be. First and foremost.....
CONGRATULATIONS DALLAS MAVERICKS, NBA CHAMPS.. YOU ROCK MY WORLD!!!!!
okay got that out of the way.
Well life has been quite challenging and interesting this past year to say the least. I'm one month shy of the year anniversary when my plateau started.. and never ended. I have been told I've come in a hard second for several jobs. My husband hates his job, but he won't quit, which is a good thing because in the past he has.
So first thing - I'm exercising again. Of course I told you guys that last blog. I've been regularly in the gym again for the past week, tracking food and lifting and doing massive cardio. I have a short term goal of too much, but setting it high and aiming at that and hoping for something in the middle.
Second thing - I do have a new job. I start on the 27th. I'm very excited. It's going to be challenging, busy and totally engaging. and I get to ride public transit for the first time in my life (train to Dallas). Got a raise with this and the benefits seem to be equitable or better than I have now.
Third thing - hubby has interviewed at another place and it looks good, but these people are very slow. It won't be a HUGE raise, but it will be significant enough to help get us out of this jam. Thankfully the bank has worked with us and we still haven't lost the house. It's been getting close though. I'm so sick of bill collectors calling and being overdrawn.
Fourth thing - I've finally come to the realization that I have a chronic problem with tendencies to depression (chemically challenged brain as my doctor likes to refer to it), so have gone back on medication and it's keeping me leveled out. So is exercise too.. but unfortunately exercise alone wasn't cutting it.
Daughter stayed in Lubbock instead of coming home from college. That's been kind of sucky, but it was for the best financially for her. She got to go to New York City last month and enjoyed herself. Someday she and I will do our own shopping trip there. When I was up there in February, I loved it... as a visitor only. :-)
Managed to gain 6 pounds in six months of depression, and minimal working out in the last three months, which is NOT too bad, but yeah it's going to be hard to get back off, but I can do it. I'm not going to let it get to me because most of the clothes still fit and I know what I did to myself.
Back to the grind of life... enjoy your day!!
