A Realization

Thursday, January 01, 2009

The other day, on RT, Marissa posted about Spark people. I decided to check mine and update mine. Seeing the graph jump from 218 to 254 was extremely depressing. I feel like a failure.

Why did I gain weight?
A combination of things: new boyfriend who cooks divine, traveling from Nicholasville to Lexington all the time, work, promotion, sprained ankle, money, class, and more.

I know this is an excuse but I don't feel like I can effectively lose weight at my current job since I live out of town. I wake up at 5:30 to be at work at 7:00. I can't wake up early enough to eat a good breakfast. With gas, I can't go home to make lunch, I don't like taking lunch every day, and don't go home till 6:00. I don't have access to a fridge or microwave. I had class after work some days and didn't get out till 11 those day. Again, dinner had to be on the run.

I'm actively trying to find new job and what not. I took a CNA class this week. I have clinicals tomorrow.

I figure I may have a goal this month of just trying to eat a bit less and not to drink anymore sweet tea. After I get a new job, I will think of a better action plan.
