Journey of the Mad Pants...

Monday, June 09, 2014

So, I have lost the wagon again... life has been SO stressful over the past months and diet has been the last thing on my mind. I eat whatever is there... usually more healthy than not, but certainly not low calorie or fat.

I have noticed this in the past month by my pants getting more and more mad at me... and I even broke down and bought a couple of pairs of new pants (in a bigger size emoticon )!

Anyway, yes... lots of stress. Still no resolution on my job situation... and the fiscal year is coming to a close WAY faster than I'd like. I have finally started applying outside of my division/department because I am feeling VERY stressed about the whole situation... despite having been told that I have nothing to worry about. (I just can't compute how no funding for my job after Jun 30th and no new job for me yet should equal don't worry... )

DH has been noticing weight issues too... so we've embarked on healthier eating starting now. I even made a smoothie this morning with beets and carrots (with other things of course)... what a beautiful color! With that, my snacks and lunch, I've had 6 servings of fruits/veggies already today! emoticon

I'm trying to set reasonable/attainable goals... haven't gotten those determined yet, but hopefully in the next couple of days.
Today, I am tracking and eating more f/v's and going to call that enough...
tomorrow... the world! emoticon

    Thanks, Ladies!
I really don't want to leave my organization (in fact, it makes me ill to think about it), but I have to do what is best for my family and my own well-being too. If God makes it work here, GREAT! If not, maybe there is some amazing opportunity that I would miss if I kept my blinders on.

Hopefully I'll have something positive to post before long....

    I agree. I wouldn't rely on your organization with the job issue! i think it's a good idea to have a back-up,. who knows something better might come along anyways!

Glad to see you back and posting Sam!!

    Oh man, how are you NOT supposed to worry about your job? That has to be mega stress, I can't even imagine!

Great job on those freggies, though. That's a great place to start.

Woo hoo for having your dh on board to do the healthy living thing with you, that's a pretty good set up.

Good luck!
