Happy October everybody. I would have blogged yesterday, but ended up having to go into work early. Woke up this morning, not wanting to get out of my nice warm covers. Woke up with stuffed up nose, and soar throat. I am hoping that I am not trying to come down with a cold. Still going to the gym this morning, and see what I can do. I still have to go to work today.
It is very cold this morning. I had to scrape ice off of my windows this morning, before taking the boys to the bus stop. I wanted to share the biggest accomplishment to this date. It's not about how many minutes of fitness I did or even the pounds I have lost. It's one that I have been battling for almost four years now. First I will give you the back story, and then share my biggest accomplishment.
In March of 2010 I was sexually assaulted at work. I wish it didn't happen, but it did. I went into a depression and gained weight. I had a hard time getting around people especially men. I had a hard time telling people to get out of my space and to leave me alone. I have been living with this four the past three and half years. The other day at work I finally came out of my shell.
The other night One of my male co-workers, kept getting a little to close into my personal space last evening. I kept telling him to please back away from me, and then I will talk to you. Kept getting in my space. I finally looked at him, and told him that if he didn't get out of my space I would turn him in. He backed off and called me a bitch. while he was walking away.
one of my female coworkers took me into the nurses station, and asked me what was going on. I told that I was uneasy to be to close to men. Then told her of the sexual assault that happened three years ago. She gave me a big hug, and asked if there was someone I could talk to. I told her I was willing to talk to anybody. She told him he was to leave me alone or she was going to call the nurse and the administrator. He left me alone the rest of the evening.
To be able to finally come out of my shell. I felt good, I felt like I had taken my life back again.
