Blogging? What’s THAT?!
Yeah, I haven’t been blogging a lot lately. There’s just been so much other stuff I’ve had to stay on top of lately and by the time my days are over- I just don’t have it in me to spend another hour at my computer hammering out a post.
Training my replacement at work has been taking up the majority of my days, and of course during what’s left I have to manage my regular workload along with training for my new position. It’s not easy, but it’s good, and I’m still excited.
I haven’t had time to even think about dating lately, and to be honest my interest in it is pretty low right now. I guess I just figure that getting into better shape and focusing on my health are more important. I’ve been doing okay with that lately too, but not great. I’m eating better at home and also drinking less but need to stop eating out with friends. Going out for “a drink” always seems into going out for “drinks and appetizers” and I need to just say no to that. I also haven’t been working out. The 9 days I spent babysitting for one of my friends while her and her husband were on vacation kind of threw a wrench into my schedule and I haven’t been able to get back on the wagon yet.
I keep thinking about what Jobo said about it taking 30 days to develop a habit. I’ve made a new goal for myself starting asap, and that is to avoid eating out and to maintain my workout schedule flawlessly until my trip to Vancouver Island/Seattle in two months. I think that’s a doable goal, and I’m actually kind of looking forward to the challenge. I figure there’s no better way to keep motivated than to tap into my competitive side!
I think the timing works nicely, too. In two months I’ll be fully transitioned into my new position at work and I’ll really be ready for a vacation. I’ll get to spend 2 weeks sleeping in & catching up on R&R, hanging out on the beach, getting exercise, and most importantly I get to spend time with my BFF- something I miss all winter when I don’t get to see her. I also get to visit with other friends on the Canadian west coast, and I get to meet a couple of my best blogger-friends in Seattle!
I’m really looking forward to everything I have planned for this spring… but I suppose for now I’d better get my ass in gear to earn it!
