Planning for Balance


Sunday, September 18, 2011

Thank you to all for your words of congratulations on my new '2nd' job! I also take note of your concerns that I may be 'too busy' but rest assured I have a plan for balance.

The shifts I'll be working are very reasonable - still allowing me to do my morning workouts and there's my lunch time walks unless the weather is too nasty. Then I may explore gym classes that they offer at lunch for a mere $4 at the rehab centre or join the gym at the hospital for a very modest monthly fee and get my workout in that way.

I will still have 2 evenings free and Sunday's off. What this new job is allowing me to see is how I can maximize my time and schedule. I'm ready for this and honestly so excited about learning all about the supplements and the store, that it won't seem like work but more an expansion of my education in the area of health (again - I see this as another step bringing me closer to my wish to one day become a health coach). It's another facet of knowledge that I'm adding to my experience.

This morning I'm a bit rushed so won't be working out. Just put a nice 'steak' chili in the slow cooker and going to be heading out to work my volunteer shift at the water station with my association. I leave at 6:15 and will be done around noon so I'll get my workout in a bit later - and for sure another walk by the river (it's going to be another gorgeous day!!)

So SParkies ... I'm off and running... well kind of - shower time, get ready and go to cheer on all the participants at the race. I may not be able to run, but I will be giving my time and cheers to all participating!

Go ANNE7X7!! And all others who are participating!

    You will be busy, but like you said, when you have less free time, you maximize it more! That's what I've been finding with school+work!

Thanks for the shout out :) Still bummed that I didn't see you (by the 16K mark, I had stopped looking and was just trying to stay alive!)

I know you'll figure it all out, Helene.
You are high-octane gal!
Lucy and William are coming to spend the day, overnight, and then the day again tomorrow. Their parents are going to NYC for a function this evening. They are sending over the double stroller so I can get out to walk-a good workout with a stroller- esp. a double!
