There’s nothing as isolating and equally freeing as the second you realize it’s finally over.
On one hand, I’m really sad, but on the other… Hmmm… I welcome the opportunity to love again.

Soul Searching…

I’ve been away for a bit just attempting to slow down the pace of the everyday.  Sometimes life gets so hectic that I forget to take time for myself and begin feeling the need to unplug for a moment.  I love being connected, but there are moments when others don’t respect my time nor the fact that I have a life outside of their own selfish needs/desires. I’ve made some major decisions about my life over the last few weeks that primarily means saying “No” to lots of people.  And ya know… it feels damn good!

My nutrition plan is still going well.  I’ve been losing very slowly, but slow is better than not at all, I guess.  I’m back on BC due to the somewhat, revitalization of my “relationship”, so we’ll see how that goes.  I love how smooth and clear it makes my skin, but the cravings are something else!!!  So far, I’m keeping loads of fruits in my arsenal and staying away from the chips and cheetos.  (Go Me!!!)  And great sex still counts as cardio, right!? 

I’ve also decided to leave my job.  This is a decision that has been boggling my mind for some time now.  There are days when I literally feel physically ill driving in to work because it’s just a dismal, joyless, unhappy place. I hate the idea of even having to step foot into the office.  That’s GOTTA be a sign.  I realize that jobs are tough to come by and I’m sure there’s someone out there that wishes they had this one.  And if that’s the case, I really hope they get it because this just isn’t a good fit for me.  There comes a time when you have to say enough is enough.  The plan isn’t to leave immediately, as I’m feverishly seeking a new position, but my resignation letter IS written.  All that’s left is to sign a new offer letter and click the send button.  

That’s all for tonight, I’m going to grab a propel and catch some Zzzzz…

Still feeling icky…

Okay Flu-bug, it’s time to roll.  SERIOUSLY!  I’ve been under the weather officially for two weeks.  I am soooo ready to be well!  I have been sticking to my plan as closely as possible.  I have been a bit lax here of late.  I really need to get back on the ball.  The bad news is that I haven’t lost in the last week and a half.  The GOOD news is that I haven’t gained anything back either.  If i’m not losing, I surely don’t want to gain.  

I’ve noticed that I really need to gain strength in my legs and lower body.  I’ve been doing pelvic lifts and loads of squats lately, and I can really feel a difference.  The only thing is that I can never find the amount of calories burned for pelvic lifts so that i can enter them into my Daily Burn app.  Weird… NO ONE has a calorie burn stat on this?   Hmmm…

Anywho.  Pretty laid back weekend for me.  I have a few functions to attend over the next few weekends.  I love nothing more than being able to get all dressed up to go out and party.  lol.  I’ve been going to get gel overlay on my nails for quite some time now.  I’m at the point where I’ve seen it done enough that I’m SURE I can do this myself.  So I’m off to go find a gel kit to try it.  Worst case scenario… I’m back to the salon on Monday.  lol.
