Okay my update.
So while I've pretty much determined that I'm not going to find my match via internet dating, it's given me a whole lot of confidence which is priceless.
If I come out of it with a new friend or two even better. I'm going about my life doing what I want and enjoy. I joined the Philly chapter of a Vegetarian education group. Once a month they have a singles "outing" at a veg restaurant and general group events as well. I also voluntered to help staff a table at a health and Food Expo in March. It'll be fun!
I've gone to one of the singles restaurent outings already before the holidays and it was fun! Everyone was so nice and man oh man the randomness of the topics we discussed!LOL!
At the moment I am trying to not get the office respatory infection and stomach bug/flu that is going around.
So far I'm winning!
I'm reading a book that has me completely captivated right now. It's Becoming Jane Austen
, the book that inspired the movie Becoming Jane out Feb 12th on DVD! I'll be at Wal-Mart after work that day buying it!
The sad news: I lost both of my trainers at the gym last week!
One of them I was expecting to lose. He has just finished law school in Dec. and got a job. I knew it was a matter of time. I'm truely happy for him, but that just sucks for me!
The other trainer, had to cut back his hours because he's going to school. He cut two days out completely and one of them was mine. I had to split my time between the two of them due to scheduling issues. I have an appointment with one of the female trainers tomorrow and an appointment next week with one of the other guy trainers. So we'll how that goes. I'm gonna miss those two!
They showed me how to weight train properly. I'm now very comfortable in the back with the free weights with all those yummy muscly meat heads!
I love lifting weights because of them. I even got a high compliment from him, he said he loves when he gets to work with "Female meat heads"
:LOL: I'm so proud!
I say that I'm ambitious because when I go after something and do not let anyone or anything stand in my way. Okay so I'm doing things backwards, just now going back to school but I wasn't fully committed to Accounting back then in my 20's. I was lost in my 20s and didn't want to waste time or a heck of alot of money on school if I wasnt certain what I wanted to do.
Now it's full steam ahead! I've gotten a lot of support and respect from people about it. They've all told me that they couldn't do it as an adult. I say you can do anything you want if you want it bad enough.
I saw two profiles that caught my attention and they couldn't be more different. One is a Chemist the other does Labor/Construction type work. I do find that the guys on the internet are a bit....well conceited and have an ego and want the Victoria's Secret model type for a girlfriend. It's hard to describe, but I'll know when I have that connection with someone. Until then, have fun!
A friend of mine put my independance into perfect words to make men understand it, she said(cause she's the same way) "it's not that I need him(whoever he may be) in my life, it's that I want him in my life"
Amy-The key to exercise is finding something you enjoy to do! I love the gym! I also started off by walking my dog 20min briskly, I moved on to Lesley Sansones Walk Away The Pounds workouts. Those were great cardio and light weights at the same time and you DON'T have to be as coordinated as a dancer!
Maybe try renting some workout DVD's from the video store? See if you find a style you like and is fun for you.
Okay so now I've written a novel I'm going to sign off for now.
