I started my new job on 2-27-12. I knew it would be an adjustment. I have to drive 30 min to the new job as opposed to old job where I was 5 min from work. I told myself I would never drive further....but this job was TOO good to pass up. After 5 weeks at the new job - I am glad that I took it! I am way more challenged. I have way more opportunities. I moved up in my career and making more $. Hours are flexible. I work in a sales office with only 1 other person and away from the production facility. I can walk on lunch and there is a fitness center less than a block from the job. I have 2 lovely windows with a view. I can also work from home, during bad weather in the winter.
So after giving myself time to adjust to the new job....I signed up for a 2 week free membership at the gym. I went this morning for the first time and got in a 30 min workout before work. It feels exhausting - but GREAT ! I am planning on continuing the morning workouts. I am stocked up on healthy foods too !
I am re-energized with the new job and the workout situation. I am motivated to lose the 5 pds I have put on over the past 6 months. I am motivated to lose the last 10 pounds I wanted to lose before I gained 5 back. It is my goal to lose 10 pounds by middle of May. I know I can do it with regular workouts and eating right.
I AM going to be more fit by Summer !
