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.
