Happy Thursday, Spark Friends!
Sorry I have been MIA lately, but there's been A LOT going on.
Since my last blog, I've been really battling with my emotions and food cravings. I've been trying to find a new job as I am not happy (although I am grateful) with my current job now. I have been searching for over a month now, and I have not heard anything back. In addition, finances, relationships, and my injured foot have all led to a bout of depression. Because of it, I allowed myself to venture off of the healthy journey that I was on. Now, I'm back to the 160s the last time I looked at the scale which means I regained 20 pounds of the 30 I had lost which does not help at all.
Last weekend, I went to Atlanta to visit family as well as participate in the Color Me Rad 5K. BJ and I had a blast! That was his first 5K race, and now, he has 5K fever! Haha. So, we are signed up for two others in the fall, and we are looking at one or two more.
Really, the Atlanta trip (especially the 5K) really turned things around for me. I am in the beginning stages of getting back on my healthy journey. However, I am choosing to look at it as just that -- a healthy journey. While weight loss is great, I am trying to focus on other aspects of this process -- healthy eating, exercise, sleep, and how they make me feel. I am hoping that this will make it more permanent. Nonetheless, I am excited to restart this journey!
Also, I am excited to say that I have three interviews for jobs this week and next week! I interviewed with a bank on Tuesday, and they really liked me. I will not hear from them for another week or so as they had other people who interviewed at the same time. Today, I have a test with an insurance company! Lastly, sometime next week, I have an interview with a tax firm. I am so excited about all the possible changes coming up in my life!
In addition, I have kind of been taking a break from Spark. Truthfully, I felt like a hypocrite by giving advice about health when I was not taking it myself. Plus, I did not feel cheery when I was depressed. I didn’t think it was fair to all of you. Anyways, I am hoping to gradually get back to Spark soon. I do miss you all!
What’s going on in your life?
