I have been off work for nearly 5 1/2 months, and have many things to show for that time off-some good and some bad.
1. Time to myself 1. 10 extra pounds
2. A closer relationship with Him 2. Less money in my emergency acct.
3. Less stress to get things done 3. More stress about money
4. Walking and listening to books 4. Missed career opportunities
What pops up to in the cons that I can control directly is the extra pounds, all gained as a result of my insatiable appetite for Dreyers Slow Churned Rock Road Ice Cream which I consider a gift from God (less fat, same great taste as the real stuff). The weather is starting to cool off and it actually rained yesterday and I know that with winter comes my waning interest in ice cream. Horray, I can capitalize on that I think, and am recommitting myself to lose some weight. The walking has become a real habit, so what's stopping me? Could be those bean burritos, No, No, No...I am going back to the salad a day with lean protein regime that I do love but have become too lazy to prepare. So, off to Costco for giant bags of romaine and all the berries I can carry. As God as my witness, I am going to do something to get out of those size 14 pants today and tomorrow and all the tomorrows ahead. Maybe I will land that illusive job this month, too.
