Starting off on the right foot

on March 16, 2014

Last week was one of ups and downs!  The biggest “down” being that I found out I did not get a job I had interviewed for the week prior.  It was a HR opportunity with a large and well-known pharmaceutical company in my area.  While I knew I did not have all the experience they were looking for I still had hope that they would take a chance on me anyway.  I am definitely having a tough time lately maintaining my optimism that a good job opportunity will be coming my way… SOON!  

We had a good weekend at least.  We (mainly Brian) were productive around the house and we took Boo out to a local farm yesterday to check out a sugar house to see how maple syrup is produced.  Of course, we HAD to buy some local maple syrup and candies to bring home with us.  That inspired a brinner (breakfast for dinner) of blueberry pancakes, sausage, and eggs that none of us could get enough of!

Last night after Brian went to bed I sat there thinking of the job situation, mainly how desperate I’m starting to feel about finding one.  I also woke up thinking the same thoughts.  Not exactly a great start to this new week.  I decided that instead of staying in bed feeling sorry for myself I would get my ass in gear and start back on my couch to 5k training.  A friend of mine had posted the other day on Facebook that she was going to start training again and wanted to see if anyone else was interested in joining her as a way to hold each other accountable.  Since I’ve been trying to motivate myself to jump back on this for weeks I figured it couldn’t hurt to try.  This morning I rolled out of bed just after 7am and threw on my workout clothes.  My setup took a few minutes – had to get the treadmill ready to go, cranked some Justin Timberlake, and played Sunrise Earth on Netflix (a little added inspiration since I was running indoors).  Thirty minutes later my first day of week 1 was complete.  I did some stretching afterward and was ready to face the day.  The best things about working out first thing this morning (aside from the initial gratification of getting it out of the way) is that I felt energized – no more “just waking up” grogginess for me – and the stiffness that accompanies me every morning was gone!

I literally started my week off on the right foot and am so happy I did so.  After I got Boo up we had a healthy breakfast (fresh fruit, granola, and Greek yogurt parfaits) and took some time to check out a local kid’s fair today.  She was so excited to pet a python, get a tattoo (temporary of course), and a lollipop!

Now I just need to figure out a good dinner and keep this positive attitude and inspiration going forward throughout the week!
