If I Don't Get a Job Soon I Will Totally Blimp Out!

Saturday, December 15, 2007

Unemployment, hmmm. Was okay the first week, relax, play on the computer, sleep whenever you want. I started exercising in the mornings and thinking well this is good I will get fit while I can. The second week, eating out of boredom crept in and exercising slid down. I have been unemployed three weeks now and the weight is not just creeping on, it's bob-sledding! I can't afford to go places so I sit at home, eat, get more and more introverted and feel like I'm not in control anymore. I sure hope this ends soon.

    When I do schoolwork at home I have a tendency to eat and eat and eat... Once I realized this, I stopped buying unhealthy snacks. The food in our houes is pretty boring, but at least now I know that if I snack it's not THAT bad for me... yogurt with granola, fruit, popcorn, chocolate milk (my personal fav -- calcium + protein + CHOCOLATE)... good luck, chin up :o)

  MJOHEMME, don't give up hope. I know what it's like to be unemployed. I expect you already registered with one or two brick-and-mortar search firms in your area, as well as with a few online ones, such as Career Builder and Craig's Llist, as you try to find another job.

I know it's not an easy time for you, but try your best to get some exercise in every day. If you live in a part of the country where it hasn't really got cold yet (such as in the south), go for a walk in the park, or walk around a mall. Also, if you can volunteer an hour or two at your church (or other religious establishment) office, or a soup kitchen or food bank, that would make the day go by faster, and you'll be helping someone else at the same time. That way, you won't get bored and give in to the temptation to eat. But keep your cell phone with you at all times, though, so that you can still get your calls.

Hang in there; think positive thoughts. Remember that what you do for others will come back to you tenfold.
