It Was Just One of those MON-days...

Hello Friends!

Update. After the weekend, I was suffering from some MAJOR Monday blues! emoticon

Had a fun weekend, then Sunday went by way too fast. Then I fall asleep, and poof, it's Monday.

Didn't want to get up. Didn't want to brush my teeth. Didn't want to put on any clothes. Didn't want to put on any shoes. Didn't want to get in the car. Didn't want to go to work. And sooooo didn't want to BE AT WORK. (laughing) Ugh. You know what I mean?



I just feel like I'm so over this 9 to 5 business. I'm an entrepreneur at heart and can't wait to get my own diddy up and off the ground one day. And even though I'm at a job I enjoy, it doesn't pay a lot. And to start a business and make money, you have to spend money. In addition I really would like to go back to school and inhale some learning to get my MBA or some Masters degree. But it's such a crossroads. Spend more money I don't have for an education? Online or on campus? Stay at this job or get a new one? Should I study for a new career? Should I move (my lease is up in November)? California? Colorado? Georgia? England?! Should I stay or should I go?

So UN-sure...

I feel like I don't know which school I want to go to and what for yet. And I don't really know where to move to that is a great, affordable place to live. Then I'm also like, should I leave this job during my personal fitness journey when things have to be so disciplined for me to lose weight? I mean, think about it. Having a job keeps you in somewhat of a routine that helps a great deal with your success, you know? And the stress of a new job is a lot compared to my virtually no stress job right now.

Plus, did I ever tell you guys I wanted to be a pilot when I was growing up. Well I did. Something emotional sidetracked me. But I was just thinking about it the other day. Should I, shan't I? Yet another crossroads... hmmm....

You know what? I'm rambling. And you know what else? I think it's TOM. (lol) emoticon emoticon emoticon

You know when your mind just wanders and wanders, and you feel a little stuck and slow and heavy...

Whew. So glad that day is gone. My mind is still a'wandering, but it's no longer Monday.

I still feel very in control of the weight journey. I am a very slow work in progress, but in progress nonetheless. My weight loss is maintaining excellently, and that's success in its own form.

Meantime, I'm taking any advice I can get, still watching the World Cup, and staying away from the muffins and cake...

And I hope everyone is having having a wonderful start to your weeks!!!

    Hey lady--

    Be encouraged!! I know exactly what you mean. Living and thriving is all about taking calculated risks so think, pray, decide, then move forward. I moved solo 3500 mi without an ounce of family in my new state--it's gonna be 3 years in August and I still love it!! I also resigned from my gig as a celeb asst to go to grad school full-time but the student loans are eating me up so I've taken a pause and am looking for a 9-5pm! With that said think twice about digging yourself in debt if you can. If you're ever scouting your next move and venture to Los Angeles-- let me know so we can meet up. I also just started my own business which has been exciting and fruitful--everything's hard before it becomes easy. So step out on faith for something different since you have a feeling that your current situation isn't very fulfilling for you.

    Be encouraged girlfriend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    i also am feeling all those things. i'm looking for a stable job. wanting to move overseas, but also want to take up MBA which would be more affordable if I stay here. i'm dependent on my parents and a work in progress in terms of loving myself... i feel lost sometimes and only my faith in God and his plans stop the agitation and worries. we all go through crossroads. it' part of life and i believe that it makes us stronger. when we're at our 50s we will look back and appreciate what we have gone through as these will shape who we become. good luck with your decisions. tackle it one at at time. :)

    I totally wasn't feeling Monday either. And usually I don't mind Mondays - especially on a pay week. Ha! If you do decide to go to school please please please make sure it's for a masters program that you can utilize and that you are happy with. I got a masters degree in a very obscure subject matter totally expecting to get a job in that field, economy hits the tank and I'm working in a totally different field because I was desperate for a job. But it's a good paying job and it keeps the student loan sharks off my back. Whether you get an obscure degree or not, the man wants his money, that's fo sho! :) And I totally feel you about wanting to try a new city. I live in a very small city, I mean super small (like 50k) and I want to live in a big city or maybe in a different country. It's on my 30 before 30 list so I need to make some moves soon! Hey, tomorrow's hump day and you're on the brink of a long weekend! Whoodeewhoo! you'll still have to face Monday but at least this week it'll be on your own terms. Happy rest of the week to you doll!

    You are doing just GREAT! And I'm so excited for you, so young and with all these intriguing choices in front of you! So many decisions yet to make, aren't there? I'll be anxious to see what twists and turns your life takes from here, though I can see why you're a little reluctant to make these changes, as you presently have all that structure your job has established, and structure does make a structured eating/exercise plan easier to implement. So I have absolutely no advice, but I'm all eyes and ears... Good luck with whatever you should decide! - Sandi emoticon
