Hello everyone... that is, if you remember me.
The last few months have been trying and it won't let up at least until December, I'm guessing. I started a new job March 16th and underwent 10 weeks of classroom training that I thought would make my mind explode. I had three exams - one 16 hours, and two others that were 8 hours a piece. I made it through that only to be thrown into rigorous on the job training since then. I've worked every shift - it's intense and stressful... after i get through with this part of the ojt, then i have another 2 weeks of classroom training, and another 2 months of ojt for the actual part of my new job. What was I thinking taking this job? ha! In the end it will be worth it, but I had no idea that it would be like this.
No excuses though -- the exercise could have helped me with my stress from all of this, but instead i would just collapse from all of the brain work and spend the rest of the time studying for the next day. I realize, however, that I absolutely MUST get back to what i was doing for my health. I've gained weight back, my health is going down the toilet and I feel terrible (health wise and self esteem). So, I'm going to put forth a concerted effort to start this again. Wish me luck!!
