Moving On and Joining a New Gym
Saturday, August 13, 2011
I have been in such a slump. As a lot of my spark friends know, Noah and I moved at the end of June from NC to GA. We moved in with my sister and her boyfriend. It has been a good transition but a transition, nonetheless. Moving is stressful.
Noah started his sophomore year at his first new school last Monday. His new school is double the size of his old school. He is great though. He is already making new friends and a teenager in the neighborhood has already made our house his second home.
I am still looking for work and I am trying to stay positive.
The downside is that my sister and her family's eating habits are not that great. My sister manages to stay a size 6 while eating fast food on an almost daily basis and no exercise. I have no idea how she does it. She never feels energetic though and always needs a nap in the afternoon. Typical dinners are nachos, pizza, etc. I usually eat a salad with protein for dinner but I am not eating as well as I did last year. My will is weak and I am eating many more snacky-types of food. I am afraid to weigh. I have probably gained at least 10 lbs. during this stressful time.
There is a Snap Fitness gym a couple of miles from here and I am thinking of joining. I feel guilty spending the money (no contract - $34.95 per month) but am trying to think of it as my Rx anti-depressant, anti-anxiety reliever. I looked at the website and they have a week free trial. To be such a loner, I am terrible at exercising unless it is at the gym.
I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to all my spark friends for sticking by me and continuing to send me notes and stopping by my spark page. You all mean the world to me.
Here's to moving on and getting restarted on being my best self!!
