So, last month was interesting, to say the least! I'm including my New Year's Resolutions this time, think I'll do it every month when I do these monthly self-assessments.
1) Continue to make positive changes in the relationship I have with my husband.
Things have been AMAZING between the DH and I. It's been a pretty stressful month, which is why I had to temporarily abandon the blog. In the span of three weeks, I found out my colleague at work was a backstabbing, spying, petty manipulative b*%#!, I quit my job, lined up 4 interviews, nailed all 4, selected and then started a new job. He was absolutely wonderful the entire time, and I really think that seeing him be there for me with unwavering support and love really opened up this new chapter for us. A good chapter :)
2) Enhance my Musicality.
Community band has been amazing to be a part of. We have our one (and only) concert on Mother's Day weekend, so after that it's going to be a sad summer. But I'm definitely joining again this fall.
3) Obtain my goal weight of 120 lbs.
During this hell-ish month, I think going to the gym has been a real since of stability for me. I have been able to maintain my current weight, while still continuing to add definition and strength. Well, there was the 2 week span where I lost 4 pounds then gained it back, but that's only because my stomach was in knots and I couldn't keep anything down. Since my work life was in shambles it was such a great source of comfort to hit the gym at my regularly scheduled time. Also, in the past when I've had a stressful event in my life my insomnia comes back full force (surprise surprise!), and thankfully that hasn't really been the case this time. Hum...in retrospect it looks like I handled this all very well, which is very unlike what my former self would've done. Another big source of accountably and focus has come from the team I'm an admin to, team Leaving 130-ville. There are a few ladies who consistently have been posting to the team, which has definitely made me feel more connected and centered with the sparkpeople community, as well as that whole "look, I'm not alone!" factor. Which is always nice :)
Look Ma, I'm growing (spiritually & intellectually)!!
I do have some more free time to focus on me and the gym, as right now I am only working three days a week. My new job has be going between 4 different clinics, the 5th one will be my Tuesday/Thursday gig, but that clinic is still waiting to get it's feet off of the ground. But it'll be my site once it's up and running. There is another one in the works as well, so my schedule will probably be changing soon.
April is going to be a better month. I can feel it.
And to all my fellow sparkers that celebrate Easter, He has risen indeed!!
