I just want to thank all of you who were so supportive after my last blog entry. I really was feeling low and terrible and I really appreciate having so many loving people there when I fall.
I hadn't intended to write a month-after update but it seems to have worked out that way! So what has happened in a month?
I've been doing a lot of travelling still for work and volunteering, and haven't made a lot of thesis progress
I've been going to the gym again! I have a plan, and goals, and I'm moving forward with my fitness to try and get back to where I was in October
I lost six pounds (averaging exactly my 1.5 per week goal)
I just got hired on for a new job! A real, grownup job, at a company I've worked for through the summers and volunteer for during the year. And I'm on a manager-track apparently, with the directors of two departments fighting over where I get to work. At this rate, I will be in the right place to take over for the COO when he retires! (Har har, I think I would hate that job)
Spring has sprung and I am feeling much better about things. I am joining some of my very anti-blah friends in a 100 Days of Fitness Challenge.
30 minutes a day, every day for 100 days.
I'm excited for this challenge because even if that is a long time, it is a good way to make a solid habit of exercising even just a little. And it won't let me slip from one rest day in to a rest month -- instead of taking a rest day, I'll go for a walk or go dancing or something.
Day One was today, and I hit up the gym for a walk and for Zumba!
LET'S DO THIS THING SPARKIES!
