Things are/were going fairly well for me.
I started Sparking again, not "hardcore" like before, but I started taking baby steps. I log in everyday, I track my fitness as much as I can, I have started eating better. At least, for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is still a bit of a challenge for me. But, I am slowly getting there.
I even started losing some weight. I am down to 226 (from nearly 240 a month ago). I have been stuck at 226 for a week or so, but I am getting there.
I started a new career path, which has been great so far. I'll get into that in another blog soon enough.
However, I received some news today that hit me in the gut and took away all of the goodness that I had built up inside of me. It might not seem like a big deal to most people, but it paralyzed me.
My main source of income while attending this academy was taken from me. Although I am not physically working, I was assured by my boss (and stepfather) that I would be taken care of until I graduated and was able to find a job. In return, I was to make myself available to work on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, if I was needed.
So far, I haven't been needed. But, I have sat by the phone, waiting for a work call.
Instead of getting my normal paycheck, I get notified that I misunderstood the "arrangement" and would only get paid if I were physically working, which there currently is no work, and subsequently, no paychecks.
Like I said, most people might not see this as a huge issue. However, with all that I have endured over the past 7 months of employment, it is a huge deal for me and my family. Another burden that I am not 100% prepared to deal with.
If it's not too much, could you please just say a little prayer for me? I don't care what religion you are or aren't or who you choose to worship. Just keep me and my family in your thoughts and good graces during our struggle. I would greatly appreciate it, more than you could ever know.
SparkPeople is my main support system outside of my family and I have had the pleasure of interacting with some AMAZING people on here. It would mean a lot to me.
Maybe together, we can get through this.
Thank you so much!
