Well, I got a new job today!! In two weeks, I will start as a Publishing Assistant at a small, Christian publishing company, and I could not be more excited!! It’s a full time position that pays over $2/hour more than I make now at my part time job. And it comes with full benefits, vacation, and paid time off, etc. Basically it’s a legit, big girl job, and I will be using my degree, which I feel awesome about, and getting into a field that I can hopefully build a career in. I’m a little bit sad to be leaving my job at the University, just because I work with so many great people in my office, but my new office will be in a building that is literally across the street. I’m also a little nervous because I will be going from a part-time working-mom to a full-time working-mom, but I know I can manage it! Liam has a blast at his grandparent’s house four days a week already, and now it’ll just be five days a week instead, so I know he will be fine.
I haven’t really been posting much because I haven’t really had much to post. I haven’t been eating very much healthy food or counting my calories, and I haven’t been working out much either for the past couple weeks. I lost three pounds, but I’m sure I’ve gained it right back. WHY does losing weight have to be SO DANG HARD??? So tired of the struggle. I’ll do really well for about 2 weeks, and then I’ll slide right back into old habits and not caring again and just gain back whatever I lost. I’ve been struggling with these same 10 pounds for the past TWO YEARS. I can’t seem to lose more than 10 pounds, and then I always gain it right back. UGH. I’m really hoping that once I get into a new routine with my new job that I can get the hang of this. I’ll be home in the evenings a lot more since I’m planning to cut back my tutoring hours, so I’ll hopefully have more time to cook healthy dinners and workout. In the meantime, I’m going to try and just keep squeezing in workouts when I can and keep reminding myself that just because I have a bad meal/day food-wise doesn’t mean it’s worth giving up!
Sorry this ended up being a total mind dump. Oh well! Happy Monday!
