Happy Healthy Monday

Hello Mamavation Sistah’s.. I finally got to the store this weekend and I think I am ready to start anew. I will be counting weight watcher points.  Things have changed for me this past week. Hubby is starting to workout again so that helps me stay on track. I am also going to take a FREE workout class on Tuesday and Thursdays. Thursdays is yoga and pilates so I am excited to try them. I can’t go this Thurs but the following I will do that one.

Best news of the week I GOT A NEW JOB! Thank the Lord for that. I have been applying for almost 2 years. The stress of the job I am at is unreal. The boss is a micro manager so it makes it hard to do your job without knowing you might get yelled at and it will be nice to go to a place where people actually talk to you. After almost 3 years I still don’t feel I fit in. 2 weeks and I am out of there. Downside is that I can’t come home for lunch any more but I will pack lunch like I used to.  Upside is there is a great walking park close so on nice days I will go to the park, eat, and walk.  I am super excited.

I had an excellent vacation and I am sad it was over but why didn’t I know about before I left. I mean ladies! There is some sexy stuff there. Not sure what I would even pick out but would love the change to do it.

Well my weight loss goals for this week is simple. Focus on food and water. I tend to put too much pressure on myself. I need to just relax and try to enjoy the journey instead of stressing!

  1. Congrats on the new job! Change is always so refreshing! Not liking your job can hurt your health, so if you really hate the current one, it’s definitely time to move on!

    Keep drinking your water!

  2. Yay for the new job! I know they’re hard to come by these days, I’m stuck in a job I loathe too, but can’t seem to find anything else.

  3. CONGRATS!!! I left a job like that a year ago and have to commute now too – I think I’m healthier because I can pack healthy stuff & stick to my planned lunch. I also take advantage of a park nearby and go for a 5K run most days (rain, sleet, snow etc… ) It’s amazing how much getting outside for fresh air at lunch helps your outlook on life. I’m looking forward to hearing all about your new job in 2 weeks from now – congrats again!

  7. Wonderful. Sounds like you had a much more upbeat week. So happy for you about the new job!! A positive outlook can make everything seem so much better. Keep up the positive vibe!

  8. KARLA!! CONGRATULATIONS! I’m so proud of everything you’ve accomplished! You’re such a rock, and I”m so glad to have you as inspiration!

    I had a job like that too, and I blame a HUGE part of my massive weight gain in the past years on the stress eating from that job. It’s a psychological thing, and it’s really hard to get past it. You’re moving in the right direction, and I’m so happy for you!!

    You’ll have to keep us posted! I’m anxious to hear how it all works out!

    Have a great day, love!
