Week 2, day 8 Woohoo!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Today is the first day of the second week and I am plugging along. I am actually pretty proud of myself. I usually go to the gym after work to blow off steam, but I ended up working late and the gym was closed. I thought about skipping my workout, but just could not come up with a good enough excuse. I have a treadmill at home, but I am close to the maximum weight limit for it, so the belt tends to slide. It works, it's just not what I PREFER to workout on. So long story short, I did my workout and am proud of myself for not giving up when an obstacle came along.

I have not been sore at all, but I can tell I am still pushing myself at the end of my workout. I advance to the next step next Monday and am kind of anxious about it. It's only running for 30 more seconds, but that is a big deal for me. I know I can do it, I am just trying not to psych myself out.

I am dealing with the hours I have been stuck working and tightened my budget, but I have applied for some different jobs and am praying that I will be able to find something else in my field with decent pay. I am burned out at the one I am at now. I have been so short with people that I have avoided talking to my friends because of it. I am praying this change will come soon and that I will be able to handle my temper better.

    Glad you were able to get your workout in! I have to workout first thing in the am or I won't do it at all.

    I pray that the Lord open a door for you and that you will be able to find a new job or if the Lord does not want you to move on that He will give you the strength and patience to stay where you are at. It's so hard when you are in a place that YOU don't want to be BUT the LORD wants you there. Let your faith shine through in the workplace!

    Keep the faith.
