This friday is my last day at my current job. I'm returning to my previous job which will eliminate ALOT of my stress. Of course life will never be stress free but working here as changed me in ways that I really do not like. I don't even recognize myself anymore, i lost all desire to take care of myself and barely struggled through the day. I'll be returning to a supportive environment where the job itself is less stressful.

Unfortunately i've been doing poorly on the weight loss, mostly due to stress and depression. I'm going to put down some new "rules" for next week. New job, new plan! It will probably take me a bit to nail down a work-able workout schedule since my hours will be different but i'm sure I will adapt quickly.

1. No snacking after 9 pm, this is when I tend to over eat and throw a whole day of healthy eating out the window. If I am truly hungry I may snack on some vegetables. If i'm just craving something I will have some tea.
2. Workouts:
2 days intense cardio, 2 days heavy lifting, 2 days of yoga. Days will be determined by my schedule!
3. Once a week pamper myself, i haven't been feeling much like taking care of my appearance which does not help self esteem so this is mandatory! It can be a bath, a pedicure, a facial..maybe even all three, just gotta get it together!
4. Daily visualization of the person I want to be to help me stick to my plan.

I'm running low on time for my bridal shower, i really want to lose 12 pounds by then and 25 by the wedding.. I'm starting to get really nervous, if my wedding doesn't motivate me then nothing will!

    You have discovered a principle that Wayne Dyer preaches: Two questions: What would be your ideal job? and Why isn't that your job now?
