    Aww lady I am sorry = ( . When you're unhappy with your job, it makes everything else in your life that much more stressful. I wish it was as easy as just finding something else. Is there maybe a new position or change that you can make at your current employer? Maybe a slight change will make things better even. I use to really really loathe my job. I would upset myself so much that I would just lie awake at night depressed about going to work. It took me a long time to realize that my job doesn't define who I am - it's just a job. Look for the positive and try to push back the negative. Your job should provide you with the means to have a life, not be your life.

    I wish I could make it better for you. = ( . I have found that exercise lets me get a lot of that sadness/anger/depression towards my job out. I use that frustration to drive myself. If you're having trouble getting motivated, schedule yourself for exercise. I literally schedule 80% of my day on a day planner so I know I will stick to my workouts. I don't let anything get in the way. The days you don't feel like working out are the ones that you need to workout on the most. Sorry if I sound preachy - I just don't want you to give up!!

    You have done so well and come so far. Don't let a minor bump in the road derail you. Remember how amazing it feels after you finish a workout or putting on a pair of pants a size smaller than you thought you could ever wear again! You can do this hon. I know it. You are so strong.
    Take a step back, catch your breath, and then ignite the fire again.

    I'll be here, cheering you on the whole time!! YOU CAN DO THIS!

    Yay for exercise partners! I am glad your patient is okay. Sounds scary! I have class tonight, but if I get out early enough, hopefully I can get a run in tonight. We will have to see! Any plans for the weekend?

    I know = ( , I could kick myself for the same reason! However, we need to look forward!!! Every moment counts, so we just have to make each new moment worth it. I think both you and I can get out of the 200's before the end of May!!! Let's start summer in Onderland, deal? I am sorry about all the stress you are going through. The only advice I have is exercise helps relieve stress!

    I promise to keep on you if you promise to keep on me! We'll push each other.

    Hey hey Lady! That sucks about your toe. I have no idea what I would do ... if it feels okay, I would assume you can go back to working out . Maybe start with weight lifting or something not too high impact!!!

    As for the workout/weight loss thing, I have been fluctuating between 208-215 for almost 2 months myself!!! I keep telling myself its stress and lack of time to exercise, but I know its within my control. I am putting my foot down though. I need to get serious because I have my half marathon in 12 weeks. So I am using this weekend to reaffirm my goals and come up with a workout plan.

    I think the both of us just need to restart ... maybe if we push one another, we'll see the results again!! Here's to getting to Onederland!!!! I am making myself be more active on SP. I do the same thing as you... jump on, quick update, jump off. I need to schedule more time on here because it helps!!!

    I hope your family is doing well and work isn't too much stress.

    Keep being lovely and wonderful my friend. We will get this done!!!
    Have an awesome weekend and keep in touch!!!
