I’ve had a drastic change in my life the past week. I am no longer employed. I don’t have a 1.5 hour commute to and from work, nor an 8 hour workday. I feel such a sense of relief. I thought I would be more anxious about only having one income than I am, which is a relief. I am becoming involved with the PTO and plan to find other means of volunteerism while looking for a job in the local area.
Not having an 11.5 hour work day means I have given myself plenty more time to get healthy and to be a more involved parent with my son. I’m looking forward to creating a new normal with all the changes that have been made. I foresee a few more on the horizon, but I feel like I am in a good place to handle them.
My plan is to improve my overall fitness for a few months with group fitness and/or videos, the elliptical, walking and if I can find a swimsuit, going to the pool and swimming laps (or learning to swim laps). Once it cools off a bit outside, I want to start running again.
Onward and hopefully slim-ward!
