Start from Where You Are
Sunday, February 19, 2012
Its been awhile since I checked in - had a rough Christmas because my only daughter and I are at odds. Then January rolled around, I stopped exercising and sparking. Lost my job of 14+yr on January 13th (downsized but not down any sizes, ugh) and have spent the last month so intent on the job search that I still avoided Sparkpeople as well as exercise.
Here I am so here is where I'm going from - thankfully only up about 5 lbs from last check in. I decided that I can't possibly live life to its fullest if I am ignoring what was making me feel better. Exercise and eating better. Sparking with my friends.
I have a few job prospects and am hopeful. It finally dawned on me this week I won't be able to truly give a new employer my best impression if I'm not taking GOOD care of myself. Nice resume, nice interview clothes, and a winning smile are great. Except if underneath all those things I'm feeling like a FAT, BLOATED SLUG then I'm not doing anyone any favors.
Here is where I am and starting from here is as good as any place.
