My "job" is a substitute teacher. I go into other people's classrooms and take their spots whenever they can't be here to teach their students. It is a rewarding, though low paying job, especially for me, I have my teaching degree but am one of the many recent graduates who are unable to find a teaching job due to budget cuts.
It's frustrating for me to be 2.5 years past graduation and still not have a job. I am really going to put a major effort into job hunting this year and applying and doing everything I need to do to make sure that I ma successful in getting a job this year. Teaching is all I want to do with my life.
I think that losing weight will have a positive impact on my job search. It will be nice to be viewed as a normal size woman instead of an obese applicant. I know the statistics....thin people get hired more often than fat people...the world's last tolerated form of discrimination!
So today I am getting back on the fitness wagon which I fell off of last week. I am going to go run and I am going to like it- darn it! I am going to do Lv 2 of the 30 day shred and I am going to love that too!
I have 2 more big reasons for wanting to lose this weight....
My High school reunion next summer
My son's Soccer 8th grade night in April (I have to walk out on th e field in front of EVERYONE with my son!!)
So that's three external reasons for needing to get healthy. Time to get on it!
