After my post last week, I started going to the gym on Tuesday. So far since then I’ve been Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and I did cardio at home on Saturday as well as walked around shopping for 4 hours Saturday night. Sunday was my rest day. I just got back from my sixth day at the gym. My body is so sore but it feels worth it. I don’t get sleepy in the early afternoon anymore. It’s easier for me to stay up past dinner time. I feel less irritable at work.
When I went shopping I spent about $250 dollars. I bought myself some nice sports bras, some workout clothes, and a sweet pair of Nike’s for the gym. The Nike’s were about $70 bucks but my feet need a good pair of shoes. I have flat feet and my whack Champion sneakers make my feet sore and my right foot goes numb a little bit. So event though I spent a lot of money I spent it on things I really needed… I also bought myself a new purse because I needed a new one and it was a little reward for myself.
There’s been some changes at work too. They are moving me to another site. I couldn’t be more thrilled. Of course I will miss my kids but I can’t wait to escape the torment of my over working, under appreciative boss. My new boss is a girl about 2 years older than me and she’s really cool. She has a lot of good ideas, she doesn’t make her employees do her work. She’s much more organized and personable. I start at that site today. So I’m in a really good mood post-work out.
The next step to weight loss and being healthy is to start eating healthier. I don’t have to be a total health nut but I’m going to start by making healthier decisions. Smaller portions to start with and fresh vegetables instead of canned or frozen. Buy healthier snack food. Etc.
Anyways I’m so tired right now I don’t even know what else to write about. Haha. I think I’m just feeling overwhelmed with the long road ahead of me. But I haven’t had this much determination since well… ever. Hoping I keep this up.
