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!
