So, here I am once again in Missouri. The place I never thought I would live again. Have to give life that, it is so unexpected and you just can't control it.
I have had a very rocky 2017. So much has happened this year in a negative way that it is almost unbelievable. I left Amazon because they wanted me to work more, I was already pulling 60-70 hour weeks (in office, not including work I did from home). Then I moved on to Intentional Futures and the job was ok but it wasn't challenging enough for me and it was just not quite the right fit, so I left them.
I have been unemployed now for three months. I have applied to hundreds of jobs and so far, nothing. It isn't from the lack of interviews. I have interviewed at least two dozen companies, mostly phone screens, but I am still in the rut. Hopefully the right role will come along soon.
As far as my running goes, I have talked about my IT band injury from July. I received a steroid shot in my knee which I had several reacti…
Rowing is where it’s at! I totally forgot about rowing
machines. I can never go on them for too long because they make my back muscles
go crazy because they are actually being used for a change! But last night I
did a solid 15 minutes on a rower and it was pretty good. My back feels like
someone round house kicked me yesterday but that is exactly what I was wanting,
to feel like I am making real progress on strengthening my back. I love the
fact that it is a cardio workout as well. That was my main draw to it
yesterday. I wanted to get 30 minutes of cardio in and after 17 minutes on the
StairMaster I ventured over to the rower to work a bit more on my back. I think
I figured out that I just need to go nice and slow with a consistent rhythm on
the rower and I can go for quite a while. Usually I try to go pretty hard and
want to give up after a few minutes. But Last night I felt like I could keep on
going last night for quite a while. A little known fact about me, I LOVE the StairMaster…
I try my best to live a healthy lifestyle but life sometimes puts a bit more stress on me than it should and I break down every once in a while for a few months at a time. Whether it is because of recovery time from an injury or something else, I just get down on myself and I stop working out. I put on a few pounds here and there but it usually isn't that much. This year was different, even though I try to keep my head held up sometimes it loose sight of that healthy lifestyle and I binge eat junk food, this year, I binge ate for a few months! I just tried to eat my problems away. Which is never the answer but talking it out with my friends, and working hard to get some of the harder life things taken care of, I have been able to get the binge eating under control for now. It is something I have always struggled with, and I am sure I will continue to. If you would like to learn more about Binge Eating, click HERE. What is Binge Eating Disorder?
