Day 2 went well. I had the luxury of having the whole day under my control.
The job hunt is heating up and that's where things really get tested. Will I get up early enough to fit in a workout AND catch the train to get me in on time? Will I work next to one of those magical salad bars that got me in trouble at the last job? (Plenty of yummy healthy produce up front, but a magical little hot bar in the back. Once you pile the mac n cheese over the fried chicken on top of your salad, really, who do you think you're kidding at that point?)
It's all very exciting and nerve wracking. Which means it's time to take a breath and get a realistic look at what's in front of me. "Exciting" is fine. Enjoy it. Have fun with it. "Nerve wracking" doesn't need to stick around. To the best of my knowledge I have 7 strangers that hold my immediate future in their hands. Etiquette dictates that I can't be a bee in their bonnet every five minutes just because I got impatient and wanted my answer yesterday. This means we've hit the "out of my control" part of our day. I have no power over it, so why should I let it drive me crazy? Answer: I shouldn't and I'll try my best to drop it. I'm trying to lose my own weight. I don't need to pick up extraneous heavy burdens along the way.
By taking out the worries and "what ifs" that were bugging me this morning, I've freed up room for some new things to swim around in my noggin. Like, "quit using your blog as a stall tactic and get to that day opening workout!"
