Work is still stressing me out..big time..and it's being reflected in my eating. I don't eat near as much at home as I do at work. I know this but yet I still struggle to control it.

I have sent out 3 resumes this weekend but expect it'll be a few weeks, at least, before I hear anything.

On possibly a positive note, I asked the boss that drives me crazy, if she would stay to train/work out a new head boss (believe there is a strong chance that current one will leave in next 6 months or so). She claims that she has wanted to retire for awhile (she's in middle 70's) but didn't want to add to his stress with his wives illness. She said she is leaving in the next few months. I got all excited about that but then remembered she has said that several times before so while I hope it's true I'm trying not to get too excited. I don't want to put the blame for my eating problem on her and know that it's my issue but I do think removing the stress and games she plays with my head will help.

And on an even more positive note I had a good workout Monday, Tuesdays work out was okay but todays was awesome!!! I pushed myself harder than I thought I could go and I did it!! I don't know the last time, if ever that I worked that hard. Felt great! As for the Tuesday workout it was water zumba which I enjoy but the class was only 30 minutes so got the guts up to ask instructor and she said she would love to increase the length of the class!

I enjoy classes much better than working out alone and they have added more classes so I'm in 7th heaven! There are classes Monday through Thursday and all are different.

I'm thinking I might actually be able to complete the 3k walk next month! woohoo!!

    emoticon on the exercise! I hope things work out with your job. I've been feeling the desire to look for alternate work lately, too. What my employer says/implies and what they do are two different things, and I'm beginning to feel like I have no future where I am at. I would LOVE to work for PetSmart instead of Wal-Mart because I have a passion for pets. The only thing holding me back right now is the fact that we already booked our vacation for June and I don't know if a new employer would give me the time off or not. Plus, I am full time with benefits at Wal-Mart, and I don't know if PetSmart would give me health insurance or not. I know there's only one way to find out.

    Sounds very positive indeed. You are very fortunate to have the opportunities to work out so often in the water. The work situation is bound to get better. Either by her retiring or perhaps a new job. Keep breathing and concentrate on your many skills and qualities.
