And She's Back!

Thursday, May 19, 2016

Wow! I can't believe it's been 2 years since I've blogged!! Life has been crazy. I think my life was consumed by work and not being happy at my job. It's amazing how a bad work environment can send you into such a tailspin. Thing have improved in the last 6 months. People who had made this a horrible place to work are now gone. Several positive things have happened at work. My office was moved to a better location, I feel as if I am being respected and upper management has been coming and asking my professional opinion on things. I feel as if a weight has been lifted.

In the meantime I have decided to look again at my health as I continued to gain as I emotionally ate because of the unhappiness. I went to the doctor and my blood pressure is looking a little high and I am pre-diabetic. This means that I need to get on the ball and lose weight and get back to exercising. March I did great hitting my step goal and I upped for April and promptly fell off the wagon! So here mid-may I am trying to scramble back on. The last couple days I have hit my step goal and need to continue on with that. I have done great with drinking my water. I got a water bottle from motivationalbottles.com and it makes it easier. It tracks the water by times, not ounces. So it tells me where I should be at 8am, then 9 am, etc. I got the one with the straw. I love it!! It has motivational says and mine says "She believed she could. So she did."

I do need to get back to menu planning and eating right. This will probably happen after my camping trip over Memorial Day weekend.

    I hear you loud and clear - I've been on and off Spark, on and off eating right and excercising...bad breakup is my excuse. Thankfully my job is my refuge. I'm hoping to make some serious lifestyle changes in the coming year. I will watch for you in the motorcycle chicks group
