Work is good ... but I want to be unemployed again!

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Okay ... so one should NEVER not want to work or turn down a job! That's just craziness and a little on the ungrateful side - IMO! But I just got extended for another month at my old job. I'm not complaining about the work ... what I'm complaining about is the lack of time I have to work out! I was looking forward to restarting Making the Cut since I only got to day 21 (several days out of sync of the program) when I finished this "contracted" time on October 2nd. Now I've been extended to the first week of November ... UGH!

I'm happy working and I really enjoy working with my old work pals again ... and being a machine operator is pretty cool because it's like a new job every day - even twice a day since we switch off with our "team mates" after 4 hours everyday. But I REALLY wanted a month to really concentrate on Making the Cut and see if I can really get down to my new goal weight before November.

The work is so labourious and I burn anywhere from 850 - 2000 calories a day doing my job, but it's NOT working out, which, believe it or not, I REALLY miss. On early weeks I get up so early that I'm exhausted tired come 3:00 in the afternoon and on late weeks I have so much to do before work that I am not making time to work out for at least an hour. I guess I just have to put it on a schedule and do it regardless of how tired I am work my physical job or what I need to do before work.

Anyway ... I'm also going to stop making Spark and my Spark friends suffer my absence because I'm working ... I'm sorry everyone! It's absolutely not personal. I'm just not unemployed!

Be Positive! Be Strong! Be Confident! Be Committed!

Talk to you soon!

    You have just defined how I've felt for the past few months!!! I was working night and just started a day job so now between the two, and spending time with a wonderful man I've acquired along the way it's become impossible to find time to go to the gym like I used to. I'm just trying to find ways to manage my time better seeing as I've gained 6-8 Lbs back and I am SO disappointed about it. I WILL be going to the gym after work today. It's all about taking baby steps to keep you in the routene. Miss speaking to you too but now you make me feel less guilty! lol I'm not alone! Good luck in your journey Cindy. You REALLY look incredible. Don't lose the momentum. Talk to you soon!

    I can't wait until your unemployed again either :) Miss you, but that's really cool you burn so many calories in a day. This is just a little hump and as long as your not gaining or going back to old habits then you'll be fine. I'll be counting the days down until you get done this!

    I know how you feel. I have a sit down job and can hardly wait for the time I retire so I can have more time to take my long walks and exercise more. Is that crazy or what! Anyway good luck!
