On the job front, I'm calling someone from HR tomorrow morning for a confidential discussion about this whole issue.

The reality is, I like my job. I really do. And right now I'm getting rides to and from work. So I'm thinking as long as I have a ride, I can just sit this out. It's not fair, but that's life sometimes.

But if I ever have to start putting the miles on my own vehicle again for this nonsense... That's why I want to have it on record that I said something right from the beginning.

Anyhow, on the fitness front, I'm feeling a bit of a burn today. I went to the gym yesterday again. It went so much better than I expected. I actually found guys willing to help me learn how to do dead lifts right. It was awesome. I didn't do them very well, but at least I got out there and tried. It'll only get better from here.

Back to my burn. I am feeling a little achy in the muscles today. Not so bad I need to sit in my chair all day. But enough to know I'm doing something different, and the muscles are changing/growing because of it. It's awesome.

On a worrysome note, I'm not sleeping. Two nights in a row now. I'm up tossing and turning until after midnight. I have to get up a 5:30am to get to work on time.

Funny thing is, I'm tired in the evening. I even fall asleep for a bit when I first get to bed. Then I'm wide awake.

I'm trying to not let that stress me out - I have enough stress in my life as it is right now. Last night I was thinking about it. It seemed this unfair job stuff was mostly what was rolling around in my head keeping me awake. So I guess that's telling me I can't just ignore it. It's really affecting me more than I even want to admit.

GRRRRRRR. Sometimes I HATE having such a strong sense of right and wrong. Regardless of who is being wronged. I tend to just dwel and want to fight for it.

Anyhow, I need to turn my mind. So that's what I'm working on today. Doing what I can with it, and then just leaving it up to the powers that be.

I am planning on going for my run today. Part of me is considering not doing it - there is a blizzard outside. And I'm not quite recovering from all this new fitness regime as fast as I should. Maybe I'm stressing my body too much?? Anyhow, I will be on the road for the following three days. So no time to exercise or run then. I figure that's my workout rest time. So I really need to do what I can now to get my fitness now before I need to take a break over the weekend.

Good thing too. There is some stress coming up at work, and it's taking a toll on me. Not only this mess above.

    Since you're getting a ride I can understand letting the drive issue go - but you definitely need to be on record with your concerns. If/when you start driving yourself to work you'll be even more entitled to that extra pay.

    I hope the sleep issue works itself out. I hate not being able to sleep.

    Is possible that you're getting a cortisol bump at nite. When this happens, its difficult to fall or stay asleep.

    Try vitamin C over the course of the day and B complex vitamins for your adrenals?
    Glycine ( a non-essential amino acid) taken under the tongue about 20 minutes before getting into bed might help too.

    EFT or Tapping is another route.
    Glad you've come to a compromise with yourself over the drive to work issue.
    Something I've always hated to do... particularly in Winter with the ice and snow.

    Hang in there, it hurts to be wronged. But it will all work out, it always does!!
