7DBC: The Start Doing List
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Well for those of you who watch my "Status" feed know I just started a new job. Sorta exciting. Its education, its close to my house. But it's as a teacher's aide, not teaching.
I have been out of work for *2 years* during which time I have applied for hundreds of jobs. In November I looked at my husband and said "If I cant get something by January, that's it. I'm done. I'll get a job as a cashier or secretary." This particular job pays the SAME as those positions, but at least its something I can put on my resume.
So Yes - Starting Things.
1) I will give myself 2-3 weeks to wallow in "Oh god, how do working people find balance time!" Then I will do it. This may mean getting up early for AM runs. This may mean Child gets to watch me sweat with a Jillian DVD. And when the weather gets warmer, I will start bicycling to work (its 3 miles) at least once per week.
2) I am restarting my program, not because I gained a buncha weight over the holiday, but because I need to reset my brain. 10 days of sickness, sloth and eating had a 3 lb impact. I've already lost 2 of the lbs so its really just one that needs my attention. But I was getting lazy with my tracking and eating anyway. So a Start-Fresh is in order.
3) I will restart blogging in my other blog. I havent posted anything since the August Monroe Triathlon. Family members comment that they enjoyed my writing and seeing what I'm up to. Now its just a matter of doing it.
Oh dear. This entry comes perilously close to New Years Resolutions.....
