Still around, progress is slow
Wednesday, May 09, 2018
Hello all! I am still lurking around, here and there. I have been busy, busy, busy with work and working on some self improvement stuff. Also looking for a new job! *sigh* The place I work at now is selling so I am having to interview for my old job with the new company. I have had 3 phone interviews and 1 face to face interview now. I should hear something back from them by early next week at the latest. I'm nervous and I know I shouldn't be. I kick ass at my job and if they don't agree then they're just wrong. haha! It makes me nervous though because I need a job so if they don't want to give me the job I want or match my salary I will have to look somewhere else and that's just a whole lot of stress I am not in the mood for right now! lol!
I have listened to Jen Sincero's You Are A Badass and You Are A Badass at Making Money which has me super pumped about making a lot of life changes to help me live my best life. I made a new board on Pinterest and am filling it with all the things I want to have, places I'd like to travel, the house I'd like to buy, etc. when I'm living my best life. I have been teaching myself some basic things about programming in Swift because I am really loving the part of my job that deals with computer stuff and I'd like to get more involved in that side of things. I have a fun idea for an app and hopefully I will be able to build it myself by the end of this year!
I ran my first 5k race in over 5 years last month! It sucks that I didn't get any photos but it was a really fun race! It was called the Mutt Strut and I ran/walked it with my dog. We finished in 50:42.7 and finished 116th out of 308 participants! I feel pretty good about that! The very first 5k I ever participated in I finished DEAD LAST. I know I should have only focused on how awesome it was that I finished a 5k but instead I was super embarrassed because I felt like everyone was just staring at me, waiting for me to finish so they could all get their medals and then when they saw my fat butt crossing the line they were thinking "Oh of course it's this fat ass holding me up!" I'm sure not one single person actually thought that but that is what I was telling myself. I have really grown a lot since then and I don't have those kinds of ugly inner thoughts as much anymore. I won't say I never do it, but when I do I try to recognize it and turn that thought around.
I haven't been great about keeping up with my exercise routine since the 5k. I need to do better with that! I have been traveling a lot which I know is just an excuse but when I travel it messes my routine all up! Same with my eating. It has been awful lately. I'm trying to eat the best I can, but again, when traveling it's hard!
Just wanted to put a quick update up!
