Working and Working Out

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Hello, my Lovelies!! I am FINALLY writing to you from an ACTUAL computer!! LoL

Started my new job yesterday and it's going well. I have to try to fill up my hourlong lunch now. What better way to spend it than writing a blog!!

Yesterday was the longest day in the history of days. I had to go to my new employee orientation at 8am, then drive to my job site around 10:30. After getting off at 5:00, I had to get my car looked at - oil leak. Took it to the dealership who told me that the place I got my oil change at didn't tighten the drain plug. Nice. So after that, I went to Pep Boys and gave them a piece of my mind AND had them do a complete oil change at no charge. Got home around 7:30. Called my mom to update her on my day. I don't remember having slept so soundly in a long time.

The best part about the job is being back on track nutrition-wise. Because of yesterday's butterflies, it was difficult to get entire meals eaten. I wasn't really interested in my cereal, didn't eat my entire lunch. I didn't eat dinner until after 8:30 - a simple tomato sandwich. Slices of tomato and mustard on wheat bread. But it held me over to this morning.

Even though I was so drained after the events of yesterday, I was triumphant in jogging this morning (which I also did the day before). Food is going well today. A little more comfortable at work, which will always help.

Less than six weeks until my brother's wedding, so I need to ramp up the intensity a bit. I'm still kicking...just with a few yawns and groans in between :)

    Super glad to hear you bounced back from an off day nutrition-wise, and were able to push out a run no less! :-D Sounds like you might be like me, in that my 9-5 job really helps me to follow a routine in terms of food. Congrats on the new job, new things are always exciting! :-D

Settling into a new job can be exhausting! Staying focused on your nutrition and fitness during such a stressful time really shows your motivational strength. Keep up the good work!

    Congrats on the new job and getting into a schedule! And agreed with others, an hour is plenty of time to get some exercise in, even if it is just a 10 minute walk, or some sort of strength work that you don't need to get all sweaty over..lunges, squats, wall pushups, etc will make the afternoon even better!!

    You have 2 triumphs to celebrate!!!

1. You're on a regular computer
2. Your new job

emoticon on both of them, and I'm delighted you're using your lunch hour, to blog, as I love hearing from you. However, I do also agree with Lousyloud, below, maybe you should try to sneak in an extra exercise routine for the office. I don't know what your exercise regime is now, so it may not be an option.

Again, emoticon and be blessed,

    Working has such a habit of getting in the way... Glad you are enjoying the new job so far; when you aren't using the time for blogging, you could always sneak in a lunchtime workout. I find my afternoons are way better if I at least get out of the office and walk around for a while!
