Day 3 of being on Weight Watchers and the last 2 days went VERY WELL! I fought off hunger and it felt good! By picking better foods to stay with me longer, I didn't go through the cupboards like a ravenous animal looking for some grub! ::::pat on the back::::
I did go swimming yesterday, too. Every few months I sign up for aqua aerobics at the YMCA - this is the 3rd go around but I bet I haven't been more than a handful of times. Work, school and life got in the way...the problem with that is: I LET IT. I'm trying to find that "balance" (there's my word of the year!) between life and work and soon I'll throw school back in the mix (in 2 weeks). I need to learn to take the "ME" time when I need it. I need to learn that work will be ok without me for an hour. My staff at work know that all they have to do is call and I go running and it's very hard to break that habit and not go running and then they get mad and bitter that I am making them hold up a structure of the house until I get there. BALANCE is crucial and I'm learning that I cannot do EVERYTHING.
Speaking of school...I got 3 A's and 1 B last semester. WOW! I was so happy, but I also knew/felt the overwhelming amount of work it took to get there! I was so overwhelmed/stressed/freaked out last semester, I decided that I was going to cut back and finish out my last 4 classes over the course of the next year. 2 classes this Spring, 1 in Summer and 1 in the Fall. I'll be done by December next year. I'm in no rush, there's no jobs right now anyways for us newbie paralegals.
Another friend of mine was laid off from her job on Monday. Every time I turn around people continue losing their jobs. Will say a prayer for her everyday that she can bounce back quickly.
