New jobs, and weight-loss, and logos, oh my!
I don’t know how many of you actually follow my running/weight journey, but if you do, you may have noticed as of late (like the past week and a half) that my updates have been sparse. My weight has been on a little roller coaster lately. I swear I’m still trying to lose weight, but life has picked up and my wagon is starting to go a bit slow!
I reached -20 two weeks ago, and then gained 4 back because I was ecstatic about the loss that I felt like I earned the extra calories! I also have not had the motivation to run lately so I’m not hiring the calories that I was. Since gaining the 4 pounds back, I have dropped 3 and am at a 19 pound loss.
Here is a picture of me on st Patrick’s day, this was about 18 pounds down.
I also got a new job –extremely stressful– and I’m trying to learn to eat health and workout around my new job. I just have to keep reminding myself, if I really want it I will do it! My goal now is 15 pounds by my Colorado trip( 7 weeks,yay!!!!)
Like I said I haven’t been running, which isn’t good since I have the OC 1/2 marathon in a little over a month. I know I will be able to finish, but I won’t PR if I don’t get my butt into gear.
Like I mentioned above, I got a new job, today was day 3 of actual on site work. I work at a middle school in an after school program. It’s pretty stressful because the kids are middle school and there is no shortage of attitude! I was hand-picked for this site which gives me a bit of confidence, but the attitudes are really bad and they stress me to the max. I am the type of person who demands respect, and when I have a 12-year-old calling me a slut or other various bad name, I get pretty offended. The main thing with these kids, is you can’t let it get to you or they will eat you alive. I just have to keep reminding myself, that its great experience for my future job. My boss told me that if I can work this site, then I can work anywhere, so I’m trucking along. The first week is the hardest because all of the kids are testing me, I have 4 boys who are taking that testing to the limit. Luckily next week is spring break and no program( thankfully) I feel like I already need this break.
Well I’m extremely tired– I swear a 4.5 hour shift with middle schoolers is like a normal 8 hour shift– so I shall be heading to bed. yawwwn night 🙂
For those of you who notice this post was actually posted in the morning, see how tired I was, I couldn’t even hit post! lol 🙂 We’ll I’m off to the gym. Going to run a few miles before Daisy and I swim.
P.S. I got two new logos for my photography business. I can’t decide what one I like best, help?
If you like my logos I got them from Swept Away Graphics, Michelle was awesome to work with! She was fast, provided quality work and was very accommodating with request. I would go to her again in a heart beat!
So the question for you… Which do you like better? I was thinking the circle for my fine art, the swirl for my portrait, ya or nay? Let me know your thoughts.
I’m not making any promises, but if you like my photography, check back tomorrow. There might be a surprise! 🙂 Mums the word for now!
