This and That

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Well it's been a while so I thought it's time for a truly random update.

I never lost the pounds I gained at Christmas - however my size 8 clothes still fit and so I am happy. I have continued to exercise at least 5 days a week, and I've been trying real hard to get more strength training in (but overdid it on Sunday and had to take the rest of the week off to recover - ouch - ouch - ouch - my arms)

I have a new boss at work. Who is - let's see how can I say this politely - is "difficult". Hence my stress level has increased around 1000% and I've had two IBS attacks lately and hadn't had one previously to this in forever. So I'm looking for a new job with the state but jobs are hard to find.

And it has been incredibly, unbelievably hot here. Heat indexes of 105-110. My son works in an unconditioned factory, so I've been worried about him. I am so ready for Sept!

Going with my brother to see Blondie/Cheap Trick in Memphis the weekend before Labor Day so that's something to look forward to.

Told you this was random :)

Have a great great weekend everyone!!!!

    Isn't Blondie going to be at the Botanical Garden in Memphis? It is a real trip to attend a concert there. I didn't know to take food and drink, people put out pretty nice spreads.

    Sorry about your new boss. Good luck on the job hunting. Have a great time at the concert. I'm going to Rob Thomas the same weekend at Tunica. Can't wait! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I am ready for a break in this heat, too! The fact that you continue to exercise 5 days a week is why you haven't GAINED any weight. Holding on to what you have lost is VERY important. The "yo-yo" is hard to break out of and you have done that!!!

    Try to stay cool, it will get better soon. I know what you mean when you speak of the shops with no air, my hubby worked in those all his working days.

    Not random, just really honest. Thanks for sharing everything. It's hard to stay focused on the positives when there are some many things that are overwhelming. I got a lot of positive out of what you wrote, though.

    1) You have a job. Difficult bosses absolutely make your life miserable, but you're getting paid right now, and that's almost a miracle in this economy. Good luck with the job hunt!

    2) Your son has a job. He's going to be fine.

    3) Your size 8 clothes still fit. I've gained weight, too, but haven't had to move up a size, so it's just a day at a time to turn this back around to where I was. Or to move forward from here, at least.

    4)You're going to a really cool concert! Have fun and enjoy the time with your brother. Let the music carry you away for an evening or a weekend.

    Find some good things to focus on today. Just today. Feel better and hang in there!
