Morning all *yawn*,
No I haven't awakened yet. I worked out and my muscles are sore. I did the full 3 mile workout with Leslie Sansone. For those of you who don't know her (I'm sure most of you do), she has a series of videos aptly titled "Walk Away the Pounds. She is wonderful. She gives you a full workout that it is not strenuous on your limbs, but gives you a good heart and deep muscle work out. I own this one:
It comes with a stretchy band for that part of the workout when the muscles are really engaged. Well I had a break through yesterday when I did the first session all the way through. That's 3 miles NON-STOP!! That's a feat for me as I had only gotten up to 2 miles and would stop. Before that I would do 1 mile probably twice a day. I am so proud of myself. I exercised for 45 minutes without taking a break. Even in Zumba I would have to take a breather. I'm happy to say I'm down 2lbs. since my last doctor visit and my goal is to lose another 8 to 10 before my next trip to Nashville to go to TSU's homecoming on November 6th. I can't wait to see my son's face when he sees the weight loss.
Next I must confess, I haven't been able to read the BOOBs updates because of overwhelming jealousy. Yes I admit it. I see it and it pains me to see that I missed all of that. I'm so happy you guys had fun, but I'm sad :-(. I saw someone post that they need a date for the next one because they don't plan on missing it. I agree. I refuse to miss the next BOOBs event. I know the powers that be that did all the planning need a long respite, and by all means do that, but when you get a breather, I need to know some plan details ;-). I will eventually catch up on the blogs, but until then know that I'm here and well.
The thing that has been keeping me most busy is that I made a big decision. I don't know if anyone remembers the job that I applied for that was formerly occupied by my ED (Executive Director) who left for Hawaii. Well they didn't even consider me for the job. It's ok because after much thought, counsel and meditation, I realized I wouldn't be happy in that job anyway. The person who left the job was part of the interviewing committee and somehow I knew that I had no chance. It wasn't negative thinking that x'ed me out it was realistic thinking. They wanted someone in the job that fit in the looks department. I fit neither of their criteria, although my job skills were impeccable. So I made the decision to go back to school and finish up my bachelor's degree. I plan to get it in Counseling/Social Work. I have many gifts and talents and this degree just hinges on one of them. I will soon after get my master's. I am looking forward to doing something for myself after all these years. I start in the Spring of '11 and plan to do an accelerated program. Since I work at a university, I can go free.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
