Since starting my new job a few months ago, I have been so swamped and busy. Is this what being a working woman is all about? And to top it all off, I just moved this weekend. Thankfully, I finally have internet access set up and the clouds over my brain are finally starting to clear away.
There have been a few things going on…
I finally broke down and bought a gym membership! Now I have no excuse to not go to the gym when I have access to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – including holidays.I stole a stray cat from my former animal-abusing-neighbors who claimed it was their cat. She now has her own bed, where she chills out all day and eats more food than she ever did with the neighbors.
I love my job. I really do. But I feel no sense of community in South Texas. People judge me for being vegan, and all of the guys who ask me out are so lame with their cheesy pick up lines and bad intentions. Coincidentally, friends have been sending me job applications in Houston, San Antonio, College Station, and Dallas. I would love to live in these places and find that community that I so badly miss right now. Let’s not even get into the discrimination issues I’m facing legally at work.
Ugh, my work life is a mess.
With everything going on, it’s easy to turn to something bad to make me feel good. One day, I found myself walking down the alcohol aisle at the grocery store. I thought to myself, “I just need a glass of wine!” I had to snap myself out of that mind frame. What could wine do for me that running, lifting, or walking couldn’t do? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. NADA. ZERO!
As overwhelming as things may seem sometimes, I am so very thankful for the moment I’m
running standing in. So many pieces of the puzzle have been aligned and positioned just right so that I can meet the people I do everyday, learn the tough lessons in life, and gain the experience I need to became a bad ass fitness enthusiast. I never want to be one of those people skating through life and flying under the radar. I always want to set that radar on fire and make the world burn bright!
I know I haven’t posted blogs in a few days, but I’m back in action! How have you been doing?
