It's been like FOREVER since I took time to write thoughts and catch up with myself and what going on....
My weight loss has been put on the back burner due to career goals and the beginning of a new life. Has it been stressful....Yep...Big Time!
I quit my job after 27 years, it was my security but it was also draining me of my Spirit. I realized a year ago last April that I needed to make some Huge changes and they started out with changing my life style to living Healthy.
At that point I found Spark People and learned about setting goals. It was and still is the journey of my life! So Many good things happened, I lost about 40 pounds, built muscle, learned how much better it feels to fill your stomach with healthy foods, and build esteem.
As I became fit I realized I still had work to do, I was stuck in a job that left me with nothing but work and sleep. The only thing I had time to do was plan meals and work out. That was OK for my goals here at SP, but to truly LIVE, I also needed to plan goals to free up some time to experience life!
I put my house up for sale, enrolled in school, and started looking for a new job. I landed a job last month and quit Pepsi 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately my background check has slowed the process and I am on an extended vacation waiting for orientation.....that was a bit stressful until I processed it.
Life is one big process, this I have learned. All will work out!
Now it's time to also focus and incorporate all I have learned here to make the best of it!
So here are my positives...
1) I have maintained my weight
2) I have made a plan and met every goal
3) I am enrolled and will finish my CNA class
4) My house is on the Market
5) I have a Huge support system
6) I have a new job in my field of choice
7) I believe I Can!
8) I am accepting the process
9) I have time to reflect
10) I am ready to start fresh with SP goals and finish my Health Goals
11) I am right where I belong
12) Life is just plain good!
Time to start giving myself the Gold Stars again :)
