Default Back

In September I started a job that made my life insane. First I had no time for exercise or to come here and then slowly my food choices got worse and worse. I was temporary at the job with every expectation of being hired permanently. I knew after a few weeks that I didn't really want the job, but since what I was doing was teaching a 5th grade class, I didn't feel as if it was right for me to just give up on them (especially as they had already had a horrible start to their year before I got there). In the middle of December I found out the principal had decided to put someone else in that room. I cried my eyes out because I know she is a bad choice and these kids don't deserve that. However, she is a friend of the principal and there is nothing I can do about it. On the bright side, I am now free of the insane, stress filled job. However, I discovered a couple days ago, when I got on the scale that I had been neglecting, that the stress job for a few months plus the holidays have given me back over 20 pounds. That's ok, I've lost them before and I can do it again.

So, to make a long story not very short at all, I'm here now and that's all I'm going to concentrate on. I've been back on track again for 2 days so far and I'm going to stay that way. I haven't gotten back to workouts yet because I also allowed myself to get back on the caffeine habit, so kicking it again has given me terrible headaches. I'm hoping to be working out tomorrow. My food choices have been better though and I have already lost 1.2 pounds.

I quit smoking on Oct. 20, 2008 Now I right and more.

Welcome back, FitGirlyGirl ----

Sounds like you are just coming out of some pretty stressful times. I am impressed by your attitude to just jump right back up on the horse and keep on track. I bet you get rid of those new pounds in a real hurry --- and that they take a few friends with them.
