Oh happy day!!!

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Yesterday, my partner graduated with her Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice.

Friday, she got a job (after literally years of no job/under employed).

I feel like a 1000 pound weight has been lifted off my shoulders of being the sole support for our family for so long. I feel hope.

Jodie will likely continue on to get her bachelor's in CJ online, which is wonderful but the job? oh yes....income! Benefits for her! Woo hoo!!

10K steps a day continues to be a challenge. Having the last couple days off I varied rather wildly from 12K to 5K, but again I realized my job sitting on my heinie at a computer for 8 hours a day is a huge culprit of my weight gain.

Today I plan on dragging my bike out of the garage and taking just a short spin....getting back on it, working it into my routine and maybe, just maybe working up to riding to work now that school is out....wish me luck, LOL.

    YAY!! CONGRATS to you both!! I'm sure it will make life SOO much better to have 2 incomes!! :)

    I wish I could take my bike out for a spin, but it's been at least 106 degrees everyday here in Phoenix. I'm afraid to get out in that heat... I have been trying to get some workouts in in the pool tho! ;)

    Keep on keepin' on, girl!
