On a completely non weight related point
I have a job, well I still have to do a couple of things that are mostly paperwork related but other than that I have an actual job in my field. A permanent job doing what I want to do for a living. I having been looking for a permanent job for more than a year now and I finally got one through a very close friend of mine who currently works in the office. I will be moving again in a few weeks, outside the continental U.S. which will be be my fifth move in the last year and a half. However, what is important here is that it is an actual full time job and once I move I won't have to move for a few years. So, I am happy and I have been running around today trying to get organized and figure out what needs to be done. I currently have no work clothing (although I have a lot of nice work appropriate shoes but I like shoes and my size hasn't changed) so I will probably go shopping this weekend and fill in the gaps in my wardrobe. The one problem with moving is that I will have to find a new gym and readjust my workout schedule for the fourth time. However, I am hoping that I will be able to afford a personal trainer a couple of times a week and start improving my weight lifting and muscle tone. Yesterday was an example of a really lax weight day, I did the exercises but I probably need to go up in weight and I have just been lazy about doing that recently. Today, I ran for 60 minutes and walked for 60 minutes and I need to remember to do my core fitness exercises before I go to bed tonight. However, in terms of general life events the last couple of days have been really good even if I am going to have to go back to my standard workout schedule that I maintain when I have an actual job (i.e. get up at 5am, workout, go to work all day and then colapse in an exhausted heap). So, I am off to see what is for dinner, I think we are having turkey burgers tonight which should be pretty good.
